To assure total lice treatment it is necessary to remove all of the nits in your children’s’ hair. You can use the plastic comb that came with your antilice shampoo, or for better results, consider buying a fine toothed metal comb.
- Use a regular comb or brush and hair clips to remove tangles and separate your child’s hair into sections
- Now use your lice comb and go through each section of hair from the scalp to the end of the hair, removing all of the lice and their nits (lice eggs)
- After finishing each section, search again for any lice that you may have missed and remove them
It is important that you now check your kids’ hair every night until all of the lice and nits have been removed. Sit your children in the bathtub and comb their hair out with a regular comb. Check the scalp thoroughly and remove all lice (alive or dead) that you find. Next, use your lice comb again and go through each section of hair until all nits have been removed.
For lice in eyelashes, apply Vaseline to the eyelashes twice a day for a week to kill them.
