This is a really gross subject, but what is the best way to get rid of headlice without shaving thier heads. I've tried so many things but they just keep catching them. I even tried not washing my kids hair for a week coz they love clean hair but, no success.

You MUST REMOVE all the nits. They sell creams that help make the nits easier to remove. All bedding, jackets, hats and other clothes that have been in contact with the kids MUST ALL be laundered in the HOTTEST wash and dry settings. You will NEED to spray the matresses, the furniture that is cloth material, curtains (or wash them) and the carpets with a bug spray. Such as roach spray. They also sell lice spray but it is more expensive. You MUST also to spray your vehicle(s). Stuffed animals, barbie dolls and other dolls all NEED to be put into a trashbag and sealed for at least 10 days. Vinegar works really well but the smell is unforgiving. My mother always heated it as hot as we could stand and poured it over our heads in the sink over a bowl to catch the vinegar to reuse on our heads, we would go through 3 cycles of this at a time. Have little ones cover their eyes carefully. I hope some of this info was useful
