It’s another normal day until your child comes home from school, unzips his or her backpack and hands you the lice letter. Oh no! You’re instantly filled with fear as you imagine the struggle of ridding your child’s head of lice. Right?? Not so fast!
Eliminating a lice infestation is a lot less dramatic than you might think. It truly can be a fear-free and drama-free process! How? By using the wet combing method. This safe, effective and all-natural method of lice removal is all about physically removing lice and nits from the head. It’s as simple as that!
SAY GOODBYE TO THE NITS
The foundation of the wet combing method is the nits (lice eggs). When you visit the lice removal aisle at the store, you’ll see many products that claim to kill lice. And they do! But they don’t kill nits, and that’s why they don’t work. As long as the lice eggs remain on your child’s head, they will continue to hatch and produce more lice. That’s why physically removing the nits by combing them off the head is the ONLY way to eliminate a lice infestation!
HOW THE WET COMBING METHOD WORKS
So how does the wet combing method work? All you need is water, conditioner, and a lice comb. Why water? Because lice freeze in place when wet, making it that much easier to capture and remove them.
The conditioner doesn’t harm or kill the lice or nits. Its only purpose is to condition and lubricate the hair so you can easily comb them out. In other words, there’s no harsh chemicals, ineffective oils or pesticides required in the wet combing method!
This process is effective, but it certainly takes time and patience. You can find detailed lice removal instructions, including a video in both English and Spanish, at www.welcomb.com/instructions.
