I Have THE Solution for Headlice

I’ve written about my kids having lice before. My daughter had extraordinarily thick long hair, and I’ve spent upwards of 16 hours in two days picking nits from her head. I NEVER filled the prescription for Qwell, it’s Malathion and I’m not about to dump Malathion on my kids’ heads.

My Aunt was a school nurse and she told me about the Robi Comb. The Robi Comb is the best $30 that a parent can spend.

Robi Comb for head lice

Not only is it a chemical free, quick (relatively) way to get the lice out of your child’s hair, it’s also incredibly satisfying. Let me explain.

First you brush your child’s clean dry hair so it’s as tangle free as possible. Next, divide the hair up into sections and then start with a very small section of hair. You turn the Robi Comb on (it’s battery operated) and start with it against your child’s scalp, and comb each small section a few times from root to tip. The comb makes a high pitched noise until it hits lice, then it goes silent because it’s doing something wonderful.

It electrocutes the little beasts.

That’s right, you’ll hear the high pitched noise stop, and you’ll have the intense satisfaction of seeing a fried lice (because¬†I’m an adult I’m not going to make the obvious Engrish joke). It’s like an electric chair for lice… you bite my kid, I electrocute you. HAH.

In any event, I see a lot of parents agonizing about headlice this week. I’ve been there, done that, and I can help with this one. Go buy the Robi Comb even if it’s not your turn, yet.

  1. I don’t want a turn…but because I got it as a kid and ended up getting my long hair cut short, and cried for weeks about it, I’m getting one of these things. Gaby has super-long curly hair and I’m not gonna cut it off. Instead, I guess I’ll be electrocuting them when her turn comes around.

  2. We did the cetaphil blowout and flat ironed like crazy when my girls got hit a couple yrs ago. Lice are dreadful. Never again I hope! We use Minty hairspray daily to this day to repel!

  3. ALWAYS add 1oz. of Tea Tree Oil for approx. every 10 oz. of shampoo, mix well and you will never have lice problems again. After FIVE lice episodes and finally discovering this prevention tip, I can honestly say we’ve bee lice-free ever since! I promise!

  4. I have never heard of this before. We used the comb and doused my sisters hair in conditioner cause it slows the suckers down and then we just nit picked for hours and hours! 

  5. Shop with Me Mama (Kim)

    Haha! I like this comb! IF my kids ever get those pesky little critters, I will be sure to use this!

  6. I had a bad lice problem as a kid (super long thick hair + cousin who could never get hers gone= nasty lil buggers) and my mom used this or something similar on my hair..once..and they were gone, This was after repeated lice shampoos that burned and caused eczema..of course it could also be because she cut my waist length hair to my ears then used it. O.O;

    edited to add: It will zap, and it will hurt when it catches ears,
