How We Got Rid of Head Lice

"I tried all the over-the-counter treatments. (I even got a prescription from our doctor.)
I worked on combing out bugs and eggs almost every night for a month!
Nothing was working!
I was exhausted--physically and emotionally!

Then I discovered something that actually worked..."

I want to tell you our story about head lice. We have five children.

One day, our youngest daughter, age five, told me her head was itchy. I gave her a bath and I washed her hair with a dandruff shampoo thinking it would help.

Afterwards, I was brushing out her tangles, looking closely for flaky scalp when I gasped in shock!

There were little bugs crawling in her hair! I was horrified! SHE HAD LICE!

Then I thought...

"Oh no! Jill's probably got it too!" (She shares a double bed with her little sister.)

I checked… sure enough, Jill had it too.

I ran to the store and bought some over-the-counter lice treatment and those special combs. I treated their heads with the medicine and spent almost six hours combing out the nits.

After that, I changed the bedding.

We were all exhausted when we finally went to bed after midnight. I thought, "That was horrible, but I'm glad it's over!"

Little did I know we were just getting started.

The next day, I checked all my children's heads. Fortunately, no one else was infested.

I washed anything in the house that could have touched either of the girls' heads. All the bedding from all the beds in the house.

We threw away the pillows and bought all new ones. We treated the couches. It was a nightmare, but it still wasn't over...

A few days later, according to the instructions on the box, I treated and checked the girl's heads again.

They were back!

And my head was feeling itchy. I had my husband check me. I had nits, too!

Ever since I was a little girl, I've always been very particular about my hair, so I was extremely upset to think there were bugs crawling in my hair. Plus, my girls and I all have hair down to our waists, so this was not going to be an easy battle!

We went on for days, treating, combing, washing. Nothing was working! They always seemed to come back!

If we didn't get every last nit, the lice would return. The medicines were all ineffective.

I called the doctor and he gave us a prescription. I thought, "Now we have the heavy-duty stuff. This should work!"

It didn't.

By this time, a month had gone by. The lice were taking over our lives. I was so tired of picking out bugs and nits that I broke down and sobbed.

I couldn't handle it anymore. I was almost ready to shave all our heads!

Then, when I was online looking for some help, I finally found MothersAgainstHeadLice.org and they recommended something that seemed like it would work: LiceKiller. It was something that the U.S. Army used for their Rangers!

I thought, "If the Army uses it, it must be good!"

I ordered one of the "Everything You Need" kits even though it was a little pricey. I liked the fact that it came with literally everything we needed to treat our hair AND our furniture AND our laundry!

We got our FedEx box within 2 days. I immediately treated all our heads were treated and within a couple of hours, all the lice and nits were out of our hair.

Then I used the furniture spray all over the house and even sprayed the cars. And of course, I did the laundry again with their Laundry product.

I was so impressed with the LiceKiller products that I decided to contact Mothers Against Head Lice to tell our story with the hope that it might help some other families out there.

Head lice can be a horrible problem. It was for us. I was so embarrassed at first. But later I found out 3 of my friends were dealing with lice too!

If you have head lice in your household, I hope my story helps you decide to give LiceKiller a try. It worked for our family and I'm sure it will work for you, too!

I was very impressed with the quality of the product and the professionalism of the company. I'm sure that you will be too.

Sincerely,

Jennifer in Texas
