Lice Comb Outs: Process and Procedures

Lice Comb Outs: Process and Procedures

Lice completely disrupts your daily routine and once you think you might have it, it’s best to get it treated immediately. You’ve discovered you have lice and you’re not sure what to do next. You see all these links, treatments, and tools, but you’re not sure what they mean. We’re here to help break the process down for you and tell you step-by-step what needs to be done and what goes into it.

Do I Have Lice?

A good way to know if you have lice is if you are experiencing severe itchiness on your scalp. This itchiness can disrupt your daily life and even cause you to lose sleep. If you look at your scalp, you can either see very tiny, black insects, which would be lice, or you’ll see lice nits. Lice nits are the lice eggs that’ll you’ll see on individual strands of hair close to the scalp. Lice nits are white or yellowish in color, hard, oval-shaped, and difficult to remove. 

Is A Comb Out Something I Can Do At Home?

The short answer is yes. However, we do not recommend at-home comb out treatments, as they can be tedious, ineffective, and occasionally painful to those without experience in the comb-out process.. A lice or nit comb is a very finely-toothed comb that is used to remove dead lice and lice nits. We always recommend coming to our lice treatment center because we have professionals that know how to safely and painlessly remove the lice and nits.

Head Lice Removal Process

As mentioned, treating lice at home is not always the best option. We always recommend going to a professional lice treatment center such as with us at Fresh Heads Lice Removal. This is how we start the lice removal process:

1. Lice check: We will first do a lice check to confirm that you have lice and to see how far the infestation has gone.

2. AirAlle Treatment: We then use our patented AirAlle device, which looks like a large hair diffuser. The device distributes warm air on to the scalp and kills the lice and lice nits without having to use toxic chemicals. 

3. The comb out: Lastly, we use our nit comb which is a finely toothed comb that is used to extract the dead lice and lice nits.

At Fresh Heads Lice Removal we offer a 45-day guarantee, no hourly charge, and a simple and effective 90 minute session to free you of lice.
