<ul><li><p>How to Use a Head Lice Comb </p><p>By Paula Tooney </p><p>Every year many people, mainly children, are infected with head lice. The effectiveness of </p><p>chemicals products is no longer proven. But a head lice comb is a sure way to overcome lice. </p><p>Why spend money on toxic and sometimes dangerous products, when the key to getting rid of </p><p>lice one and for all is combing the infested hair with a head lice comb? A scientific study </p><p>conducted by the British Medical Journal showed that combing the hair regularly was the </p><p>most effective solution to remove lice and nits, more than any other solution or chemical lice </p><p>shampoo. </p><p>Follow the tips below to make sure you use your head lice comb effectively and get maximum </p><p>results. </p><p>1. Place a white towel around the shoulders of the person, and then start by untangling the hair </p><p>with an ordinary comb or brush. This will facilitate the use of the head lice comb. You can </p><p>also wash your hair with shampoo before combing in order to make it softer. </p><p>2. Wet the hair or coat it with olive oil, so that the combing with the head lice comb does not </p><p>catch any hair, thus avoiding knots. </p><p>3. With one hand, take a handful of hair (the width of a comb) and use your other hand to </p><p>comb, starting as close as possible to the base of the hair and combing to the tip of the hair. </p><p>This will enable you to get rid of the highest number of lice and nits. Comb several times if </p><p>necessary. </p><p>It is important not to comb too much hair at the same time; instead you should divide the hair </p><p>into very small sections and carefully comb each one of them. You can then take each section </p><p>of cleaned hair and put it on the side of the head, fastening it with a hair clip, so that you do </p><p>not mix it with the hair that is still infected. </p><p>Whenever you remove lice and nits from the hair, wipe the head lice comb on a paper towel </p><p>or rinse it in hot water before proceeding. Repeat the process until there are no more lice or </p><p>nits when you look at the hair. It is essential to do this under good light conditions; otherwise </p><p>you will not see the remaining insects or eggs. Eventually, wash the hair with regular </p><p>shampoo, or hot water. </p><p>Spend more time combing around the edge of the ears, and in the neck area, because those are </p><p>the favorite places for lice. This is due to the fact that blood flows in these areas, and lice are </p><p>blood sucking insects. These areas are also where you can find the highest number of nits. </p><p>You should also make sure you wash your head lice comb in hot soapy water after use, and it </p><p>is recommended to change clothes and wash the removed clothes after each combing session. </p><p>You should repeat this treatment every day or every other day to be sure you remove the eggs </p><p>that have been laid between two combing sessions. This may take a few days until you have </p><p>killed all remaining lice and nits. As this can last several hours and as we are talking about a </p><p>child, what you can do is keep him busy by reading a book or do the combing in front of the </p><p>television. </p></li><li><p>If you catch lice again, you can still use the same head lice comb, you just need to wash it </p><p>thoroughly after each treatment. </p><p>To know what type of head lice comb you can use, visit http://headlicecenter.com. </p><p>Article Source: http://EzineArticles.com/?Expert=Paula_Tooney </p><p>http://EzineArticles.com/?How-to-Use-a-Head-Lice-Comb&amp;id=4009757 </p></li></ul>
