Meticulice™ a Long Island, New York based company trained & certified in the renowned Shepherd Method of head lice removal. The Shepherd Method is without a doubt, the most thorough, manual method available. We take lice removal seriously, and we never try to rush the job, so we do more than just comb.
A non toxic enzyme-based solution is applied to the head to break down the exoskeleton of the lice and help loosen the fixative glue that secures the nits to the hair shaft.
This is followed by a thorough combing of the hair, which removes 80 to 85 % of all lice and nits.
Next, hair is sectioned off and examined in paper thin layers ensuring that all visible lice and nits have been removed from each strand of hair. This requires a highly skilled and precise technician. Final Recheck Hair is blown dry (if still damp from treatment product) and thoroughly rechecked to ensure that all lice and nits have been removed. Once complete, more product is applied and combed through and hair is pulled back in a ponytail, braid or bun. It should stay on for at least two hours and be washed out prior to going to bed. We are so confident in our ability that we guarantee your child will be back in school the next day!
