After trying two doses of Nix and ending up with lice that were still wiggling (ICK!) I used olive oil as a friend suggested. She says mayonnaise also works.
You don't have to leave it on overnight, although I did just to be safe. A few hours will do the trick.
Comb out dead buggies with a lice comb, then wash hair and pick out remaining nits.
This treatment should be done on days 1, 2, 5, 9, 17, 19, and 21 to coincide with the life cycle of the lice.
Value added is it's not so hard on your drains when you wash it out.
Thanks to Katie for this Frugal Baby Tip!
