It is not a surprise to us that Susanna Constantine nits have been difficult to treat for three years. We know that once an infestation takes hold its horrible to treat in long thick hair.
Susanna told the Daily Mail
At the age of 55, I have nits – lots of them. Not only am I suffering the shame of a full-blown infestation, the sort of thing associated with unkempt children in the primary-school playground, my nits have so far lasted three long years. Until now, there’s been nothing I could do to shake them off.
My head lice, and the nits – or eggs – they produce have been immoveable, immune to lotions, potions and good advice, driving me to an itchy distraction, not to mention social Siberia.
That is why today I have finally accepted the humiliation of visiting one of Britain’s fast-expanding nit-buster clinics and a weird battery of treatments.
