The story about combating hair lice has really caught your interest, and your own suggestions keep coming in.
One Neways distributor recommends. . .the Neways hair conditioner. The product is formulated with amino acids, rather than the animal fat that is used in most conditioners. The texture of the hair is smoother as a result, and the lice cannot get a firm enough grip to lay their eggs.
Another reader recommends a preparation called Antelice, which is the top treatment in Ireland, apparently. It's both a preventative and a treatment, and it's odourless and non-greasy.
One reader suggests a more prosaic solution - try Vosene shampoo. Apply every other day, together with a conditioner, and comb out the hair after every rinse. It took three weeks to work, says our reader, but that was still better than anything else she had used.
