Head lice

How to Manage Head lice

Practice guidelines for treatment

  1. Wash hair in the normal way using an ordinary shampoo.
  2. Inspect the rinsing water for lice floating to the surface.
  3. Using LOTS of any hair conditioner and while the hair is very wet, comb through with a fine tooth comb. Make sure that the teeth of the comb slot into the hair at the roots with every stroke. Do this over a pale surface such as a paper towel.
  4. Sodden lice will not move and slippery hair is difficult for lice to get a grip on so they will be easy to remove with a comb.
  5. If you find any lice, repeat this routine every three days for two weeks.  

Please note had lice treatment is available at the Pharmacy for persistent outbreaks
