last night. I was to have my grand daughter tomorrow for crafts and games.
How long until they are safe?
Once they are free of nits. If all the eggs are not off the hair shaft, the eggs will hatch and they will have lice again. the shampoos and solutions kill the lice but not always the eggs, the eggs have to be fine combed off the hair shafts. Their whole house needs thorough vacuuming, all bedding, blankets, pillows, sheets must be washed in very hot water and the mattress thoroughly vacuumed, any stuffed animals must be thrown away, washed in hot water or sealed up in airtight plastic bags for several months to kill lice and nits. It is major work when someone in the house gets lice. If everything isnt thoroughly cleaned the lice will come back!
