A good head lice comb is important if you really want to get rid of each and every louse.
A good nit comb is cheap but effective in your battle against the creepy crawlies. And believe it or not, it really can be quite a battle!
There are different types of combs available for dealing with a head lice infestation.
My suggestion is that you have 3 different combs available for your use when you begin your head lice treatment. Here are the types recommended and why you need each specific type of lice comb.
Always remember to soak all of your combs in hot water for at least 20 minutes after using them for lice removal. You should also include any other brushes, combs and hair clips that may have been in contact with an infested head in the last couple of days.
Encourage your children not to share their hat, brush, comb, or any other headgear with their friends. Sharing is a great quality, except when it comes to hair lice.
To your good health!
