Head lice in very thick curly hair

I'm 23 and I noticed lice and nits in my hair about 2 weeks ago after I had been itching for a few days. I've tried RID as well as the homeopathic Quit Nits. I've noticed a decrease in live lice, but can't rid them completely.  My hair is long, very think and curly, and because I live alone in a new city, I don't have any one around me who can help me comb out the back of my hair and search for nits.
Are there any prescription strength nit and lice remedies that you can recommend? I don't care how much they damage my hair - right now I just need to get rid of this once and for all.
Thank you!
