It is day 11 since discovering the little friends who had started to make their home in my daughter’s hair.
On day one we used the special shampoo and picked through her hair… very very thoroughly. We also vacuumed the whole house and laundered almost everything that could be laundered. Then, I packed up all of the soft toys that could not or should not be washed and put the bags on our back patio.
Day two and I picked through her hair, vacuumed, laundered more stuff, changed her bedding, crossed my fingers and called it done.
Day three, more hair picking, vacuuming, laundry and bedding changes.
Day four, you guessed it, hair picking morning and night, no laundry, but changed up the pillow case on her bed.
Days five, six, seven and eight, more hair picking twice a day.
Days nine and ten, hair picking and the usual laundry.
Day eleven… I have cautiously determined that the bugs are gone. Knock on wood.
My head still itches though, but I’m pretty sure that it’s just due to my skin being dry because of all the dehydrating liquids I’ve been consuming.
