No parent will be content with their child’s lice-infested hair, according to nitpicker Anna Krosche. Physically removing lice and their eggs is the safest way to get rid of them without using pesticides, according to a new study by Consumer Reports. Consumer Reports outlines a step-by-step guide to removing hair lice.
Materials required for lice removal include; a lubricant such as olive oil, a paper towel, a wide-toothed comb, and a thin-toothed metal comb.
After gathering the necessary materials, the following steps should be taken to remove lice:
First, the hair should be checked for lice eggs.
2. Apply conditioner or olive oil
3. Detangle the hair and separate the hair into small sections using a wide-tooth comb
4. Comb with the thin-toothed comb concentrating on the scalp areas, nape of the neck, and ears
5. Wipe the comb with a paper towel and seal it in a plastic bag.
Then comb the hair for the next few days until the live lice are gone. Repeat this process once every few days for one month to get the best results.
