When it comes to tackling head lice, one of the best pieces of advice we can give is this: buy a lice comb! With a lice comb, you can safely and effectively comb through your child’s hair to identify and remove lice and nits. In fact, this technique (wet combing) is the gold standard when it comes to preventive care.
At My Hair Helpers, we say: Once a week, take a peek! You don’t have to wait until your child is scratching their head to catch a lice infestation. By combing your child’s hair with a lice comb each week, you can find and remove lice and nits before they create a serious infestation.
Here are three great reasons why your head lice prevention tool kit should include a lice comb!
Lice combs are different from regular combs
Lice combs, on the other hand, are specifically made to remove lice. They have teeth that are properly spaced so that lice and their eggs cannot pass through. And unlike plastic teeth, lice combs have metal teeth that are designed to grip the lice.
Bottom line: In order to wet comb effectively, you need the proper lice comb.
They’re easy to clean and sterilize
When using the lice comb during a lice infestation, you’ll need to wipe eggs and nits from the teeth of the comb and then wash it in warm, soapy water before moving to the next section. If you plan on using the comb on someone else in the family, you’ll need to sterilize it first.
To sterilize your lice comb, you can soak the comb in a lice shampoo solution or boil it in hot water for 10 to 15 minutes. As long as you keep the lice comb clean, you can use it indefinitely, and even use it on other members of the family!
