First, the Olive Oil treatment is excellent! Most importantly, it is non-toxic. I saturated the hair with olive oil, wrapped head in saran wrap for 4 hours. Then, I rinsed and washed with dishsoap to remove the oil. I then mixed a solution of 1 part vinegar and 1 part water to rinse the hair and pick out nits.
Second, today I sectioned off Libi's hair in green bands and went through each section checking for nits. As I finished a section I banded it in pink to indicate the completed sections. This worked so well! Libi is so squirmy this method was key. (Thanks Lynn!!)
and I am pleased to report....
we are nit free!!!
