Does your head stop itching right after using a lice treatment shampoo or does it take a while?

Head Lice Treatment

I used the shampoo, but my head is still itching a little. I’m living overseas and can’t find a fine toothed comb anywhere. I did my best to get the eggs out and just figured I have to go over it again in a week or so. I can’t find anymore bugs, so I’m wondering if it’s just leftover itching, like a mosquito bite or something. Anybody know?

Best way to make sure the shampoo killed all the lice and eggs you really have to shampoo a few times and make sure you cover every piece of your hair with the shampoo, once the shampoo gets all the lice and eggs your head should not itch any longer, it should be as soon as you rinse the shampoo off, if you rinse and it’s still itching then you probably didn’t get all the lice and eggs, or maybe you need to try a different lice shampoo.

Different Lice Treatment

I know someone who had lice, they tried two different shampoos before they finally got relief, they were relieved as soon as they got out of the shower, it’s supposed to work right a way, if your head still itches it means some lice or eggs are still on your scalp. It’s best to have someone help you massage the shampoo thoroughly through your scalp so every hair strand is covered in shampoo. Also, remember to wash your pillow sheets, bed sheets, clothes you wore in warm water so any lice or eggs will die.
