Embarrassing head lice

Hi, I am a nineteen-year-old girl from Canada. I stay in a hostel. We often share our belongings including comb, lipstick, eyeliners etc. My roommate has got lice on her head. We sleep together and now, my head also has got lice. I often scratch my head as it feels itchy. I bought a lice-comb and brushed my hair with that. It didn't go away completely and they keep on increasing every day.
Last day, I was examining myself in front of the mirror and noticed some dust-like particles on my head. Later only I came to know that they were lice-eggs. They are very sticky and cannot be removed easily. When I tried to remove it manually, it was painful. Also, I lost so many hairs in the act.
We are planning to visit a professional head lice clinic ( https://liceservicescanada.com/ ) next week. How long does it take to kill head lice? How quickly can you get rid of lice? Can head lice live on pillows and sheets? Please give some genuine replies and suggestions.
