Oh, great. LICE!!!

My oldest son has dreadlocks in his hair; he wanted them for a whole year before we started the locking process, and today, at about 4 inches long, he wears them quite proudly.

Not one, but three of her daughters have the pesky condition, and she's totally desperate for help.

Any sound advice for AmyNB or any other mom who suddenly finds herself on lice patrol?
