Product Description

Parents who pride themselves on a clean home might think they're immune to head lice, but the unfortunate truth is that these persistent pests can flourish anywhere there are groups of children. To combat this potentially embarrassing problem, pediatricians recommend frequent combing. The Goodbye Lice quick-comb has two combs that move opposite each other 200 times per second. It is much more effective than even the most vigorous combing by a horrified parent. Lice are removed before they have a chance to get comfortable or reproduce. Existing lice are damaged before they can spread. The comb is so simple to use, children 5 years and older shouldn't have a problem treating themselves. For best results, it should be used daily to fend off any potential parasites. For hygienic reasons, it's also a good idea to have a separate comb for each child.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lice go 2 Mar 2013

Fed up of washing hair without getting rid of problem. Emjoi does the function as long as you continue using over a period each day. If used only once or twice without repeat treatment, then does not get rid of problem.

4.0 out of 5 stars battery powered combs really work 4 Nov 2005
By L. Lynn - Published on Amazon.com
There were no reviews yet for this lice comb, but I've used a different brand of battery powered lice comb (Robocomb, sold at drug stores) and found it *very* effective. My daughters and their 2 female cousins (never the 4 boys...) have had head lice 1 or 2 times each, usually a couple of weeks after returning home from a summer camp, or spending time with a cousin who did. I've used the shampoos, the conditioners, the nit combs and the electric combs and found the electric comb the most effective, although it's not instant. There is no truly easy way to treat lice (which, by the way, are becoming resistant to many of the available chemical treatments) but a daily combing or three with the electric comb is a lot easier than spending hours with a nit comb. As a preventative, the child can certainly do it herself, but to eradicate an existing infestation I think it helps to have someone else do it, especially a thorough parent.

Thankfully, we've been lice-free for 3 1/2 years (I check the girls carefully after summer camp) but if we got them again my strategy would be:

1) immediately use the shampoo and rinse per directions.

2) spend a couple hours getting the obvious nits with your fingers or a nit comb. I didn't find the combs any easier to use than my finger nails. This part is a real pain and requires a nitpicky person. :)

3) wash the pillow cases, put the pillows and anything they keep near their head during sleep in a plastic bag for a week or two.

4) wash all brushes and combs - find online directions about how to wash them

5) vacuum lots of things thoroughly - the bed, the comb drawer, the seat backs/headrests in the car, the back of the sofa & upholstered chairs - anywhere they rest their heads. By the way, using very hot water to wash linens is not necessary.

6) use the electric comb 2 or 3 times every day until all evidence of lice & nits are gone.

7) 1 week after the first shampoo, you may want to repeat it.

If you skip any of these steps, you'll almost certainly not get rid of them all and someone else will get to experience the joy. Head lice can't live long without a head, so your job is to kill them or get them off the head in a manner where they can't spread to someone elses head.

1.0 out of 5 stars Waste of money 15 April 2007
By S. Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
The comb is cheaply made plastic, the kids think it's cool because it tickles, but it doesn't actually get the eggs out! I found eggs, seperated just that small section of hair, and the comb past right over the eggs. My metal RID comb works far better even if it is far more time consuming. I ended up going to walmart and spending 22 on an electric one that is made to ZAP the eggs and kill on contact in addition to my manual set.

3.0 out of 5 stars it is ok, but far not the best 11 Jan 2007
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
the hair get stock easily between the teeth of the comb, so it starts to make a strange noise, so i had to stop often to untagle it, otherwise its just a comb. It is Ok if you do not have another fine comb, but not he best imaginable.

4.0 out of 5 stars Much better than those cheap plastic combs... 28 April 2006
By J. Radebaugh - Published on Amazon.com
I bought this to help eliminate a lice infestation on my daughter. This comb is heavy and goes through the hair nicely. It grabs the lice and nits thoroughly, much better than those flimsy combs that come with the shampoos. I credit it to completely eliminating the lice problem in my house. It just takes persistance. Don't depend on chemical treatments to completely eliminate the lice!!
