Marjory,

There are various similar products ("lice-shampoos") available on the market. Ask your pharmacy which products they stock. Well known ones are Lyclear, Gambex, Contolice and Paraplus, etc.
Make sure to soak all your brushes and combs at home in the medicated shampoo as well, and use the supplied nit comb to comb nits out of hair after washing.
