We thoroughly screen the scalp and hair for any sign of lice or nits. We highly recommend all household members be examined. In most cases, if one family member has lice, others in the household do too.
Nit Hero will manually remove all lice and nits without chemicals. Research has proven that manually removing all lice and nits (eggs) with effective combing techniques is the surest way to achieve successful lice removal.
In the Meantime
Don’t panic, don’t boil the house and don’t call the exterminators. Nit Hero will guide you through the process of taking care of your home so that you will know what needs to be done without needless extra household chores. The CDC says, "Head lice do not survive long if they fall off a person and cannot feed. You don't need to spend a lot of time or money on household activities."
Lice is most often transferred from head-to-head contact and usually within one's own circle of friends. To prevent re-infestation I will leave you with a professional comb and instructions for a 10 minute follow-up/preventative comb out.

Summer camp is a right of passage, and although lice checks often happen at the beginning of a session, we often see an uptick of cases when summer comes to a close.
It is a good idea to get a head check done prior to the start of school.
