Lice Removal Tools
Nit Free Terminator Lice Comb. This is a comb specifically made to remove lice and nits. The tines are very close together and have ridges that pull lice and nits out. These can be purchase at Amazon. You can buy them in packs to save money.
Dimethicone Oil. Also known as silicone oil. This is the main ingredient used to kill lice. It's a heavy non toxic silicone based oil. It's common in many cosmetics and lotions. This oil will help lubricate hair when combing and is absorbed by lice. This will kill them in less than a minute even if they hold their breath. This can be purchased at Lotion Crafters.
Olive Oil. This is mixed in with the dimethicone oil in small amounts to replace the moisture removed by the dimethicone oil. It also helps reduce itchiness.
Purchase a large shoulder bag or rolling case to also include the following items:
- A small case for combs and hair ties.
- Roll of paper towel.
- 8 ounce and 2 ounce bottles for oil solution.
- Nitrile gloves.
- Small waste basket.
- A regular comb.
- Alligator type hair clips. The ones that I use are called "The Super Croco Clips" by Salon Care. They can be found at Sally Beauty Supply. There are similar clips at Amazon.
