In brief: Try shampoo

Unfortunately there is no guaranteed way to prevent re-infestation of lice.
You can try citronella based shampoos and conditioners that claim to decrease risk of lice infestation. Make sure you completely eradicate lice the first time around. Here's a good link: http://www.Askdrsears.Com/topics/childhood-illnesses/lice.
