No Lice Shampoo for MY Daughter

sign up for the momlogic newsletter Tweet This
Here's why.

Momlogic's Julie: When my daughter got lice, I freaked. In fact, I freaked so much, I even wrote a "lice diary" for this website. After that initial round, the lice were kept at bay for a while. But then we found another one on my daughter's head.

God, no.

We repeated the same process again ... non-toxic lice shampoo, cleaning everything in sight. When she got it for the SECOND time, we repeated the process ... but were beginning to lose faith in the system.

I had resisted prescription lice shampoo because it was so toxic. I had read the story of Jesse, a boy who got leukemia after using lice shampoo. His mom is convinced his illness is related.

Lindane (the key ingredient in lice shampoo) has been banned by the EPA. All uses of this compound have already been banned in at least 52 countries, and its use is restricted or banned in most of Europe.

But I have been told by many people that prescription lice shampoo is the only thing that will kill the lice. The problem is: I'm scared this might kill my child. Am I over-reacting, or should I continue to go the non-toxic route if it comes back a third time?

My daughter has super long hair, so after taking hours upon hours of combing it and washing it with lice shampoo we found it wasn’t working. We found though that, if you get the thickest hair spray you can find, and spray every layer of your childs hair(getting the neck and behind the ears really well) then put it up and wash it the next day, it gets rid of them even quicker than lice shampoo.
