How we treat
Nit Pickers Head Lice & Nit Removal Service uses a method referred to as (wet-combing). Wet-combing simply means we coat the hair and scalp with a pesticide-free, all natural lice treatment product. We then thoroughly comb through the hair to remove all lice and nits using a professional grade nit comb. By concentrating on small sections of hair, the nit comb pulls out any live head lice & nits (lice eggs). Once the process has been completed, we wash and dry the hair and use a high powered magnifier to recognize any remaining nits.
It is important to note that we do not use any type of toxic chemicals for lice and nit removal. Over-the-counter lice treatments are highly toxic and dangerous. According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission and the Environmental Protection Agency, children are suffering seizures, neurological brain damage and in rare cases, death. These products have also been linked to Leukemia and other rare cancers. Both agencies are in the process of having these products removed from store shelves.
