If you are currently battling a lice infestation or have in the past, you will know all about the struggle with lice combs. Nit combs, also referred to as lice combs are fine toothed combs that remove the lice and nits from your child’s hair. This specialized comb is your best friend when it comes to getting rid of lice infestations. While the comb might be your best friend, it doesn’t always cooperate.
Surely if you share your lice comb experience with other parents they will have a few stories of their own. Not all lice combs are made equally. Some are made of plastic, don’t have a lot of teeth which causes extra work for parents and they break.
Parents of children with long, thick hair seem to have the most stories. Lice combs do a lot of work during the lice treatment process and there are times when the comb has actually got stuck and tangled up in long hair, causing an entirely different issue. Parents end up spending more time trying to untangle the lice comb then actually removing the nits. Some children have healthy thick hair that can break the lice comb. When this issue arises, parents decide to purchase the best lice comb they can find.

Preventing Lice Infestations
Now that you have all the tools needed to battle lice infestations, you will also want to prevent it from returning. During the lice treatment process it is important to remove lice and nits from your child’s hair and scalp. However, you will also need to wash and dry all of the clothes and bedding that your child had contact with. The reason you need to do the laundry is because it can have live lice on it is because they can crawl right back onto your child’s head as they sleep or rest. Washing and drying the laundry for at least 45 minutes will help prevent future lice infestations.
Educating your child about lice and how to avoid getting an infestation is essential to preventing re-occurrences. Advise your child to avoid head-to-head contact with friends and other students. This sounds easy to do, but in the world of social media and selfie pictures, everyone is squeezing themselves into pictures by pressing their faces and heads against each other. Teach your child to pose for a picture without having head-to-head contact.
You will also want to advise your child to avoid sharing their personal items such as ear buds, scarfs, hats, brushes, combs, hair accessories, coats and clothing with others. Lice scatter quickly and can attach themselves to clothing and items, finding themselves a new human host. Remember, battling lice infestations takes time and patience as you comb through your child’s hair. Using a high quality lice comb will make the job easier, save you time and money.
