I've been using the over the counter treatments for 3 months. Also olive oil, coconut oil, tea tree oil, mouthwash, even tried frontline and advantage. I'm going crazy trying to get them to leave, Combing furiously for hours per day. I haven't practiced in years and thought maybe I should give it a try. They keep coming back. I'll try the combo, maybe that will help.
A combination could really help you out. The oils will help your hair and the lice removal will help you get rid of the lice hopefully.
If all else fails, as these parasites are very irritating and annoying, you could see a doctor for some really strong stuff. If you got prescribe medicine for it, I would still use it in combination with essential oils to help your hair and strengthen your scalp.

It sounds like she is getting reinfected. I would suggest looking into any place that she goes regularly to make sure there isn't an infestation that is missed. A family friend had this issue and it lasted almost a year. Turns out the kids had a brush hidden in a couch that never got cleaned from the initial lice infestation, every so often they would find it and use it again respreading the bugs.
