Our expert says:
Gambex works well for nits and lice and I have used it on my kids as well. The problem is that they do get re-infected at school again. Gambex is toxic to the neurological system, but if you washed her hair as indicated on the package insert, and rinsed well and repeated only once after 24 hours, she should not have any side effects. I found Paraspray worked well, and if you want to go the natural way, there is a shampoo available from Margaret Roberts, containing "kakiebos" which also acts as a deterrent. http://www.margaretroberts.co.za/index.htm
Most of the treatments for lice is regarded as pesticides and should be used with care.
