How To Comb For Lice – A Step By Step Process


Here is a helpful guide going step-by-step on using a lice comb to remove lice: 

Step 1: First, you will use a wide-toothed comb, similar to the one pictured here to gently untangle the hair. 

Step 2: Wearing gloves, you should then, divide the hair into sections and comb for lice along each individual section.

Steap 3: Place the flat of the lice comb against the scalp and comb it gently through each section of hair from root to tip.

Step 4: After each comb stroke, you should wipe the comb on a paper towel, while always checking for lice and nits with each stroke.

Step 5: Comb each section of hair at least 5-8 times while using a flashlight to check for any remaining lice, eggs, or nits that might be in the hair.

Step 6: Wash hair as usual and discard the comb when you are finished. We do not recommend reusing combs. 

This method is not as effective as one of our lice treatment options, but if you are going to use it, we suggest repeating the combing process everyday until you have not found any lice.
