When we are young, our parents take care of problems such as head lice; small children don't have the information, the patience, the stamina, or the drive to deal with it on their own. However, once we get to the age where we start taking care of ourselves more - taking charge of our own appearance, our own grooming - we can probably learn to take some responsibility for dealing with our head lice problems as well.
My advice to these beautiful girls was to use the wet combing and blow drying techniques on alternating days until a full two weeks go by without ANY signs of bugs or new eggs. (You can read about how to do these techniques on this blog.) I felt these ladies were at the age where they could start to take charge of their own head lice problems (although Mom's extra encouragement is always a bonus!) In fact, they could help each other out - it's always great to have a buddy to help deal with head lice.
Ladies, enjoy watching the bloodsuckers on the scary movies and good luck getting the bloodsuckers off your heads! Call me if you have any questions.
