You may not be able to protect your children from contracting lice, but thanks to tools like Lice Guard Robi Comb, you may be able to put a stop to the little buggers.
For quite some time, fighting nits and lice has meant special pesticides, special shampoos, conditioners and a slew of remedies that don’t always deliver.
The Robi Comb is essentially a bug zapper.
While combing through dry hair, Robi Comb makes a high pitch buzz when its working and the sound continues as long as there are no presence of lice.
When it comes in contact with the parasites, an electrical circuit occurs between the teeth of the comb, the buzzing stops and the battery sends a shock through the bugs. The shock either kills them or stuns them temporarily.
When the comb goes silent, simply brush the comb clean, and continue to use it.
After as little as three days of combing, many reviews state that the buzzing noise resumes and all of the critters are gone.
Of course, you will want to part through the child’s head and examine closely to confirm what the comb is indicating.
The Robi Comb sells online for $24.95, which can be a steal compared to some of the over-the-counter medicated treatments and creams.
In multiple reviews , many parents have found that the comb eliminates or greatly reduces the problem after a few days.
Although many people give the product kudos, there are reviews out there that say it doesn’t work after a while.
Robi Comb says no competitor offers an electronic lice comb, although you can find plenty of suppliers of the traditional fine-toothed combs such as the Nit Free Terminator Lice Comb which retails for $12.98.
Whatever route you take to tackle lice, there have been great technological strides in the fight against lice.
Here’s to technology that simplifies your life!
