What is your top tip?
Not Headrin, Nitty gritty, electric comb for dry hair from boots, Dr Shermans prescriptions, spray conditioners or repellent shampoos. What else is there? I want a comb free September/ life. Please.

Yep, we do nitty gritty combing after washing with vosene for nits shampoo, about three times a week and it seems to keep them at bay. Whenever I stop combing, they come back though.
It's a real pain.

In terms of getting rid of an infestation, we found NYDA works. Much better than Headrin which we found useless. Those sprays, shampoos help to keep them at bay by making your kid's hair less appealing to leap onto, but won't get rid of them once they're there. Combing is necessary, unfortunately, as for girls with long hair that tangles easily it sure isn't fun for anyone.

tea tree oil in normal shampoo frequently works for us.

Try using lots of conditioner on long girls hair, we did it with our daughter when she had problem, when i say lots , buy the tesco `own brand` 20p bottle stuff and use hlf bottle per wash, comb it through,it leaves a coating the lice dont like, and the hair is easier to comb, also for girls, hair spray around the hair roots also helps

The only thing that has worked really well is using straighteners on my daughter....they absolutely hate it , eggs get destroyed as well. Wash out with conditioner and lice comb. Then send daughter to school in a head scarf , should be part of school uniform in my opinion.
