You're done! Remember there is no wrong way to combout.

Schedule your combouts every 3 days for 3 weeks to beat the lifecycle. 

  • Start at the crown and use the lice comb much as you would brush the hair. Comb through the entire thickness and all the way to the end of the hair. Keep the comb in contact with the scalp during this step, but do not scrape. Then change directions by combing the hair straight back or from one side to the other.
  • Remember that head lice will hide wherever you're not combing so be sure to comb through the entire thickness and cover all areas
  • Rinse the hair and style as usual.

This process can take several hours. Make sure the person being treated is comfortable and is sitting at an appropriate height for you to work

  • Place a towel or cape around their shoulders
  • Apply the carrier (conditioner etc.) to DRY hair. make sure to saturate the hair.
  • Use a detangling comb to distribute the conditioner throughout the hair
  • Separate the hair into 4 quadrants, 2 in the front and 2 in the back. Clip hair up and out of the way

Preparation

 

Wet combing instructions

Removal

  • Work one quadrant at a time
  • Take out a sliver of hair from the bottom about 1/2cm thick. Clip the rest of the hair up and out of the way. This small section will be cleared of lice and nits first.
  • Place the teeth of the lice comb as close to the root as possible. You do not need to scrape the scalp. Pull the comb through the full length of hair and wipe after each pass. Comb that small section from underneath and then from on top. keep wiping and coming until you see nothing else coming off the comb
  • Inspect all sides of the hair and use tweezers to pull off any stubborn nits
  • Once this is clear, let the hair fall and take out another small sliver of hair, working your way up to the crown. This new small sliver of hair will be cleared in the same manner.
  • When that is clear, let it fall onto the already cleared hair. Then comb through both sections. Making sure to comb through the entire thickness.
  • Continue working through the hair in the same manner, working your way up to the crown of the head. If the comb starts to pull, apply more conditioner
  • When all quadrants are complete, take out the clips and remoisten the hair again

Final Combout & Check

A combout will include applying a carrier to dry hair (carriers include: hair conditioner, olive oil, Vaseline, mayonnaise, cetaphil etc.) Then using a good lice comb and meticulously combing through the hair. The carrier is what will slow down the live lice so you do not want to combout without it. You can start combing as soon as it is applied to the hair as it starts to work immediately.

The first combout will remove the adult live lice and most of the nits. There will be some  left behind but these are still too small. You will catch them on the next combout. Schedule your combouts every 3 days afterwards to catch the live lice and nits that were missed. This is how you beat their lifecycle as it gets them out before they can grow to an adult.  

What is the Wet Combing method?

The Wet Combing method is the safest and easiest way to get rid of head lice. This method focuses on breaking up the life cycle of the head louse by manually removing all live lice and nits every 3 days..

 

This is the most important step in the removal process and must be done regardless of whether or not you decide to use over-the-counter head lice treatments.
