aaaaaargh. nit free is our school policy.
which is crazy.
dd missed the most no. of school days ever due to their nit policy.
dd has superfine hair so even the finest comb does not really help. we had to get what was it a 100 watt bulb to be able to see the stray nits. and manual labour.
it almost seems like k and first is the time for lice. the whole class got it over a period of time. it spared no child except for a couple of boys. many got it multiple times.
the first time i didnt know better and used the chemicals. the second time we did the cling wrap smothering method. for us the chemicals and all the other work put into it was just - work. i kept finding new infestation. the cling wrap worked better for us with hardly any manual labor.
