INSTRUCTIONS FOR COMBING
Step 1: Brush hair with a regular brush, while Lice Combat Shampoo is still on, to untangle the hair. Divide the hair into sections. You may find it easier to work on small sections at a time.
Step 2: Use Lice Combat Comb to take out lice and nits. Place comb’s teeth as close to the scalp as possible, comb with an even motion away from the scalp, starting from the root all the way to the end of the hair (newly laid eggs are found near the root of the hair so it is important to start combing very close to the scalp). Comb all the hair thoroughly paying particular attention to the area behind the ears, sideburns, and back of the neck.
Step 3: After each pass, wipe the comb on to white tissue paper (so you can see the lice and nits).Place tissue on a hard surface and use the back end of the Lice Combat Comb to kill lice and nits applying pressure with a swiveling motion of the Lice Combat Comb unique HAMMERHEAD.
Step 4: After combing thoroughly, wash the Lice Combat Comb and the regular brush with warm water. Discard paper tissue used. Treatments are also recommended:
- During lice outbreaks at school
- Previous to and after summer camp
- After sleepovers
- When lice detected on siblings, close friends or teammates
- While at risk of repeated exposure to lice – helping to avoid the risk of re-infestation.
