so i work at a daycare and on friday we realised that a little girl in my classroom was infested with adult lice. now, i dont really wash my hair that much and have a nice little collection of dandruff on my scalp, so when they checked my head they said that it was nearly impossible to tell if i had lice or not....my head is itchy just thinking about it...i know that if i do end up getting lice that i can soak my hair in rubbing alcohol a few times and use some other mixtures to rid my head of the little bastards...but ive also heard that those are not a for sure way to get rid of them...and wont rubbing alcohol completely ruin my hair and scalp in the process of killing the lice?
the back of my head is pretty much one huge dreadlock/beavertail right now and ive started to separate it into about 4 or 5 fat dreadlocks... for any of you who have gotten lice, is there a way to search out the nits amongst my dandruff or will i have to wait until(hypothetically) i get a full blown lice infestation? any help on this would be greatly appreciated! thank you.
