Full Marks Liquid
Advantages: Kills a few.
Disadvantages: Doesn't kill all of them.
Hands up, I admit it. I was a very nitty child. I don't know what it was about me, I was always chopping and changing my friends, having to wear my hair is a horrible glued-back pony tail showing my ugly ears, all because the nits loved me. My mum always told me that lice is attracted to clean heads. I didn't care, I just wanted rid of them. I had some terrible horror stories, I had dark hair as a child so it was impossible to find black nits. I remember sitting in school, doing a worksheet, and all of a sudden something black jumped on to my white worksheet. The girl beside me caught a glimpse at the beast of nit that was crawling about the page. Suddenly, without thinking threw the paper away. I could tell the girl would never speak to me again. By the next day, all the kids in the playground were running away from me, and even after I didn't have nits anymore, I was called nit head.
My childhood days were horrible, and I hated the treatment for nits more than anything. It started off by my mum making my bend backwards over the kitchen sink, washing out the nit cream breaking my back and having soap thrown into my eyes. Then afterwards having my scalp all delicate after having it washed, then feeling the sharp points of the bone come scraping through my head. I used to use lyclear, that's what the doctor prescribed me with. The stuff worked fine, the only time I would see another nit is when I would come home from school with them. I never saw another nit from the time I was 10.... until.
It was several years ago, in high school and doing my hair for school at you do. I noticed a black thing at the front my head. I thought it would have been a lump of mascara or something. When I pulled the thing out between my thumb and my index finger. I could feel something tiny and petite wriggling about inside them. I froze, this was a head louse. I dropped the thing instantly and stomped on it with my shoe. I was almost in tears, how on earth did I get them in secondary school? I went straight to the chemist for treatment.
I wasn't given lyclear this time, I was given full marks. I thought it would just work the same. All my hairbrushes were thrown out, all my clothes were washed, beddings were changed, whilst I rubbed the pink-ish cream on, swirling slowly, catching every last corner of scalp. The directions say leave for 15 minutes, but I decided to put on a shower cap and leave it all night. The next morning, I removed the shower cap, and washed all of it off. I then went to sue the bone comb that was provided with the cream. Yet, you would not believe it, the bone comb was full of lice. ALIVE lice. Yep, there was some dead ones, but too many alive ones more my liking. I was so angry to see this happening, that I done it the hard way. Covered my head in vinegar and manually, with the provided bone come scraped the hell out of my poor head. I done this for days in order to catch any newly-hatched eggs.
Full marks was definitely a let-down for me. There is no excuse for lice to survive this. I may also add that the alive live were very small, I assume that they were newly-hatched. So, maybe full marks has problems killing eggs.
PS. My head was itchy writing this?
Summary: Buy Lyclear instead.
