I did oil for 6 hours and there was still some alive!!! So now I reapplied the oil and I will leave it on over night. I had not washed out the oil from before so it is still there. Crossing fingers this really works because I don't want to spend the money on the chemical stuff that I know doesn't work.

ETA and my hair is to the middle of my back and brown black!!! This suuuuuuckssssss.

That does suck! I was super lucky (if you can call it that) when we delt with it. DSD was 4 at the time & had well still has white blonde hair. Super easy to see the bugs. Not so much the nits though. <barf> It was an ongoing thing for months. Every time I thought we had it under control anotbher child at her Head Start had it & of course we would find out after we had her for a few hrs or just as we were picking her up we were informed we had to treat her again.

Use mayo. I used that when i had lice a few years ago. I put a massive amount of mayo on my head with a plastic cap and blow dryed it on and off for a few hours. Then combed them out in the shower. It's gross i know, the mayo and the lice lol but they are easy to get rid of without chemicals if you're careful before they get bad.

I'm on board with the passive aggressive text along with a "thanks for the heads up"
