Best Lice Combs
Before preparing to use non-electric lice combs, the hair should be washed with every day shampoo, damp-dried (not wet, but not dry) and a small amount of conditioner applied to the hair. The hair should be combed with a normal comb to get rid of any tangles/knots and then the nit detection can take place. Remember that any ordinary combs or brushes will need to be cleaned or thrown away afterwards to avoid re-infestation. Position the seat so it's in a comfortable place and put a bowl of hot soapy water within arms reach. Take the lice comb and starting at the scalp (where most lice eggs will be found), draw the comb away from the head the entire length of the hair and inspect the comb for lice, eggs or nits. Clean the comb in the soapy water and repeat the process, covering the whole head in small sections. What is found will determine the severity of the lice problem and will allow you to decide if further treatment is needed.
It may be necessary to repeat the process over a number of days so that you can monitor if the situation is improving or worsening. You should ensure that all apparatus and combs, clothes, towels, etc are thoroughly washed. Laundry should be washed and dried on a high temperature, whilst drowning combs for a long period and cleaning them with detergent will ensure all lice are off. The bowl of soapy water can be poured down the drain or toilet. If you do purchase one of the many different electric lice combs, then follow the instructions with the product carefully.
