A recent article from Drug Store News explored the current state of lice and nit removal products. Natural solutions containing oils, heat treatments and the importance of educating parents were all discussed. While we agree that parents should be educated about lice and nits and myths should be debunked, there was an important point not covered in this article: wet combing!
Even natural ingredient products that claim to kill lice aren’t effective. While the lice may be suffocated, the nits cannot be killed by these products. And as long as the nits remain, they will continue the lice lifecycle and produce more lice and nits, thus continuing the infestation.
Effective lice and nit removal is as simple as wet combing with a WelComb®. Learn more about the wet combing method here.
