How do I get rid of stubborn, recurring head lice

Customer Question

I have washed my daughters hair with Nix and combed out the nits 5 times since June. I have also replaced her hair brush each time, washed all her bedding and stuffed animals in hot water and sprayed the couch, etc. with lice killing spray. Still, there are more lice now. I don't know what to do to get rid of them once and for all. Please help!
