How to get rid of head lice?

Headlice !
how do we deal with headlice mummas? im not talking about in the kids hair, im talking in our hair!
its inevitable really that we are going to get them from our children but for some reason, we never talk about it ! im pretty certain i have picked up a couple of the little uninvited squatters and I’m now trying to find the best way to deal with this. my hair is very long and very thick so realistically, i am not gonna be able to drag a nit comb through it myself and as previously mentioned, no one talks about it, so i cant very well ask someone to do it for me. help a mumma out please !!
thank you in advance
