Oh no! Your child has come home from school with the lice letter. What’s your reaction? Most parents run in fear when they find out their child has lice. But guess what? It’s possible for lice removal to be fear-free and drama-free! All you need is the wet combing method. The wet combing method is safe, effective, all natural, and simple. The only tools required are water, conditioner, and a lice comb!
Here’s why the wet combing method is the most effective way to remove lice:
1. PHYSICAL REMOVAL IS THE ONLY WAY TO KILL NITS
When visit the store, you’ll find many lice removal products that claim to kill lice. And they do! But they don’t kill nits, and that’s why they don’t work.
Nits are lice eggs and as long as they remain on your child’s head, they will continue to hatch and produce even more lice. That’s why physically removing nits from the head with a comb is the only way to stop the lifecycle and end an infestation.
2. LICE FREEZE IN PLACE WHEN WET
Why is it the wet combing method? Because lice freeze in place when they’re wet, making it that much easier to capture and remove them. By keeping your child’s hair damp with water throughout the combing process, you’ll have the lice right where you want them!
3. IT’S A PESTICIDE-FREE SOLUTION
Did you know that if a chemical claims to kill a pest, it’s considered a pesticide? No parent should have to put pesticides on their child’s head. With the wet combing method, no pesticides are required!
