Head Lice Help: What To Do Now
So you looked at the pictures, and it really is lice? These pages have all the head lice help and info you need to solve the problem quickly. Here's how to get started right now:
If you can easily afford it, look for a professional service in your area. These people know what they're doing and can take care of the problem fast. Choose a service with a guarantee.
If pros aren't an option (true for most of us), DON'T PANIC. This is not difficult or scary. I promise! Just be thorough.
Continue to check your kids' heads daily after comb-out, just to make sure you got everything. Repeat treatment/comb-out if you find even one missed nit.
Order a bottle or two of enzyme shampoo to keep in your cabinet, so you're ready immediately if you find a missed nit in a few days, or if head lice ever visit your family again. This stuff works like a charm to disable and kill the lice, and to remove the nit glue. Most lice professionals use it. (And of course it's non-toxic.)
My family has not had a repeat visit of head lice in over two years (we faithfully keep up our preventative measures) … but I'm ready with my comb and enzyme shampoo, just in case we ever do get lice again.
Now that you know how to start, here's some more very thorough and complete information about how to treat head lice …
