Section 2: Applying WipeOut
Tip #1: Apply directly to the scalp. Lice and nits are found on the scalp as this is their feeding source and source of warmth. Focus on the scalp and first 1-2 inches of hair like you would with a shampoo or scalp treatment.
Tip #2: Use on dry hair. When lice sense water in their environment they shut their bodies down as a defense mechanism. This closes their orifices and can make it harder for the WipeOut to penetrate into the louse. WipeOut works best on dry hair because it is able to quickly penetrate and kill the louse.
Part the hair in a straight line as shown above so you can easily apply WipeOut directly to the scalp.
Section 3: Combing Method
Every lice treatment kit we offer includes a Lice Comb . This will be an essential tool to removing the infestation. There are several techniques that can be utilized to make the combing process easier and more effective.
Tip #1: Begin with wet and conditioned hair. The softer the hair the more easily it will glide through the comb. Wash the child’s hair before starting and utilize conditioner or leave in conditioner to make the hair softer.
Tip #2: Completely detangle the hair. We recommend brushing the hair out with a normal hair brush and then detangling with a rat tail comb to remove the smallest of tangles. A rat tail comb should be able to easily brush through the hair without getting caught before beginning with the Lice Comb.
Tip #3: Work in 1 inch sections. Working in sections that are too small will make the combing process take hours. Working in sections that are too big will make for a less effective treatment. Make your sections about the width of the Lice Comb and comb until you are no longer finding lice evidence. Be sure that the comb is going all the way to the scalp.
Tip #4: Keep the comb facing the same direction. An easy way to do this is have a marked side facing you at all times. By doing this you will not flip the comb around and potentially re-deposit something back into the hair.
Tip #5: Wipe the comb onto a white paper towel to check for evidence. Lice and nits are usually various shades of brown when they are put onto a white background. Using the paper towel makes it easy to see what you are finding and easily dispose of the evidence.
