Next day at school pick up I start to notice the familiar signs back on the doors 'please check your child for nits'. Oh blast thinks I, I totally cannot be bothered to deal with those little critters again. I check my three kids hair that night and breath a sigh of relief, all looks fine. However, a couple of days later I notice that my little Miss E is having a good old scratch. Check number two and oh yes, there they are!
Well what good fortune I said yes to receiving some Hedrin Once liquid gel ready for when I need it. Little did I know I would be needing it within a couple of days of it arriving! After coming back from football with JJ at 6.45pm the last thing I needed was to have to deal with nits so I was super pleased to see that the Hedrin Once treatment works really quickly - 15 minutes in fact, or you cna leave it longer if that is convenient.
I covered Miss E's dry hair in the liquid gel, rubbed it all in well and sat her in front of the TV for about 20 minutes whilst I tided up the dinner things in the kitchen. Then off we went to the bathroom and I covered her hair in shampoo as directed, while worrying that my shower might tun into a foam fest with the amount of shampoo I used! Luckily for me the Hedrin Once contains anti-foaming ingredients to ensure this did not happen.
I washed all the Hedrin out and conditioned her hair and then we sat down for a good combing session. The Hedrin does not state there is any need to comb the lice and nits out but I like to be extra careful and always find it satisfying to see those dead lice and their egg cases removed.
We are now a week after I treated Miss E and I have been keeping a good check and have not seen any further activity. I pray this is them gone once and for all!
A couple of tips for you if you are going to use this type of product, make sure you cover your child's shoulders in a towel as I find the oily gel does stain and also make sure you wash the shower throughly as of course it becomes slippery.
Ahh look at my good natured little girl!
