How to check for lice with a Hedrin louse detection comb

  • Choose a comfortable, well-lit area.
  • Hair can either be dry or wet (use water or conditioner). Comb through the hair with an ordinary comb to get rid of any tangles.
  • Divide the hair into sections.
  • Gently insert the detection comb at the bottom of a section of hair. Comb with the logo facing the head and almost parallel with the scalp so that the specially designed rounded ends of its teeth glide over the scalp without scratching.
  • Comb lightly outwards for the whole length of the hair.
  • After each stroke wipe the comb with a tissue and examine any debris found.

Repeat this process over the whole scalp paying particular attention to the areas behind the ears, at the back of the neck and under the fringe.

You may find a magnifying glass helpful to check that what you have found is an insect rather than a flake of skin or dirt.

If you are using conditioner the comb may need rinsing during checking.

After use

Wash the comb with clean soapy water and then thoroughly rinse and dry before storing in a dry place.

Treatment should only be undertaken if live lice are found. If nits, but no lice are found after thorough checking then these are likely to be from an old infection which is no longer current and treatment is not necessary.


Wet combing with conditioner

Some people may wish to remove lice physically, the most established of these methods is wet combing with conditioner. A number of devices are also available for use on dry hair only, which claim to electronically aid the removal of lice but evidence of effectiveness of these devices is limited.
