It's fun!  First, I found people in my church who worked for the schools and 
so didn't find the problem horrific.  The problem is after you have washed 
the hair to comb through with a comb that comes with the special shampoo and 
get all the nits.  They won't let a kid back in school till they can't find 
any.  The other thing, I found a school who let me go from school to school 
with her and she combed Brenda's hair till everything was gone.  Third, you 
can take your kid to chilldren's hospital. They have a special light which 
helps them see lice.  Debbie Wunder has a story about her experience.  Seems 
to me that nits are white, so they are easier to see in dark hair--right up 
by the root.  Good luck!
