    Help!!!
    My son recently got nits and we treated them and he's clear as is my husband and ive had my hair tied back and I've been really careful but ice just pulled a live nit out my hair!

    How can I treat these when pregnant? The solution I have said ask your doctor or pharmacist if pregnant.. but that's duper embarrassing!! Any ideas?

    Goah I'm so itchy now!

    Vinegar.. put it on dry hair but leave it on for about 15/20 mins then run the nit comb thru your hair then wash hair as normal. If you can't stand the smell of vinegar lots of conditioner on your hair then comb thru in sections xx

    I think this is the first time in my life I've had them! I don't think I had them when I was a kid I escaped lol mainly coz most playtime's all the other kids played on the grass and my hayfever was too severe for me to even go near it lol.

    Lots of conditioner, lots, and spend as long as you can stand combing through section by section. It's laborious but does the trick, repeat every couple of days just in case some eggs were missed. But should be gone within a few days x

    Thank you I've just done my first lot of sitting there with conitioner on my head for 30 min. I'm just going to dry it now. Gosh I hope I can persuade hubby to let me get the new hairdryer I want lol. It would be so much faster then I'll brush it. If I don't fall asleep before then lol

    I've just pulled a live one out of Cam's hair! Luckily his hair is so fine you can see them really easily when he gets them so I can treat them really quickly!

    The joys of having kids at school eh?!

    Nitty gritty is brill you don't need to use the chemical treatment with those either.

    With my son they were gone within a week with that comb. After the initial combing and getting loads of eggs and few live ones out about 2/3 days later I combed a few tiny babies which must have just hatched. I've never found anything since.
    I now check his hair weekly with the comb as he's at pre school. I check mine too with it and often think I have them but I've never found any.

    Xxx
