Drugstore sells lice shampoo and comb. Get it immediately. Then wash bedding and anything else you can in hot water with the liquid soap (again buy at drug store )

Anything that can't be washed can be put on high heat in a dryer for 30 minutes or sealed in a plastic bag for 2 weeks. Furniture, carpeting, and mattresses can be sprayed with lice spray and vacuumed well.

Get the lice shampoo. Wash everything on hot and then use gel, mousse or hair spray for 2 weeks. ;) lice love clean hair.

I believe the black dots you mention are flea eggs. Flea infestation of the head is actually quite common The first thing you will want to try to get rid of fleas is a bath in soap and water. Soap in lukewarm water acts as an insecticide, Dish soap is also effective when used as a shampoo. Then apply calamine, menthol creams, or camphor.

It is more likely to be Lice than fleas...

I don't agree. Flea eggs are black. Lice eggs have a grey or caramel color when laid, and they turn yellow to white when they are empty.

Actually, lice prefer clean hair as opposed to slimy dirty hair.
