A case of lice has been detected in the school. Please check your child’s hair and if any are found, follow the instructions below.
A recommended method to break up the life cycle of life is the Wet-Combing Method. Head lice cannot become resistant to this method and all you need is a good comb and some hair conditioner to be successful. Olive oil, Vaseline, mayonnaise or tea tree oil will work just as well, but hair conditioner is a lot easier to wash out afterwards!
This method is most successful when working with a good quality comb. Look for a comb that has metal teeth at least 2″ long. The teeth are rigid, cannot be bent easily and the handle is sealed into the teeth of the comb. Good combs will save you hours of nitpicking. The LiceMeister comb will take them out even if you can’t see them.
The first comb out removes most of the live lice and nits that are on the head. Any lice or nits remaining are easily removed with each subsequent comb out and long before they can reproduce. Just schedule your comb outs every 3 days for 3 weeks and remember to use conditioner every time you comb out. This method will break up their life cycle and guarantee complete removal.
