Warning: The LiceMeister® Comb is not intended for use

by children and should be stored out of reach.

Step
  • Use the LiceMeister comb on clean, damp & untangled hair.
     
  • You may choose to use a non-toxic hair conditioner to assist combing.
     
  • Comb through the entire head. Examine the comb for lice & nits (lice eggs).
     
  • See Critter Card for guidance.
     
  • If lice or nits are detected, go to Step 2.

 
Step
  • Divide & clip the hair into sections.
     
  • Taking a small amount of hair at a time, place the comb against the scalp pulling the comb completely through that section of hair from root to end.

 
Step
  • Dip the comb in a cup of water between passes through the hair.
     
  • Or wash it under running water as needed to remove lice, nits & debris during combing.
