Our amazing School Nurses conduct head check screenings at school. The tools used are different than what we use here at Meticulice for our Wet Head Checks. Most schools aren’t able to use lice combs, or any combs for that matter. They do the best job possible with what they have access to.
At Meticulice, we use our Gotcha! Terminator Lice & Nit Comb. This comb features long, micro-grooved teeth to catch even the tiniest nit, with rounded ends to protect your scalp. There is research that proves that using a comb during a “wet-head check” in comparison to a school screening.. is much more effective!
Please take a look at this interesting study: Louse Comb VS Direct Visual Exam for the Diagnosis of Head Louse Infestations
In the meantime.. don’t worry! Regardless if you have our comb at home or not, you can still perform a head check right now!
Assuming that no evidence is found, comb the hair back with a detangler comb and style as usual.
