As a parent, one of the many jobs on your endless ‘to do’ list is to discover the best ways to protect and care for your little ones. You hear so much conflicting advice about what to do and what not to do it can sometimes feel like you’re trying to decode a complex maths equation. But when it comes to children’s skincare, your mission is simple – to keep their skin as soft, supple and hydrated as it was the day they were born.
We think it’s always worth investing in a good quality comb; if you do this it should last you a lifetime. Well, at least until the nits have given up and departed for good.
Some people swear by metal combs, others prefer plastic ones – it’s all down to personal choice and what works for you and your little one. However, research has shown that a fine toothed plastic detection comb is better for finding live head lice as the teeth are rigid enough to catch the smallest of lice. Metal combs tend to be more effective at removing the nits and hatched white egg cases that are often stuck to the hair shaft.
Whatever you opt for, the comb should have teeth spaced less than 0.3mm, but at least 0.2mm apart. Always clean your comb after every use.
