A recent article from Drug Store News explored the current state of head 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: the wet combing method!
Even natural ingredient products that claim to kill head 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 head lice and nit removal is as simple as using the wet combing method with a WelComb®. Learn more about the wet combing method here.
