RobiComb- The Lice Zapping Comb

Press Sample

Lice: every parent of a school-aged child cringes at even the thought of the nasty little bugs that would love nothing more than to invade the hair of our precious children, lay their eggs, and generally make as much trouble for us as they possibly can.  I am no different.  In fact, the idea of head lice was one of my greatest concerns when making the choice to send our kids to public school.  Forget strep, flu, or chicken pox; head lice had me cowering in the corner like a baby.  Considering my fear of these tiny creatures, one would assume that I am well-versed on how to prevent and treat, should the opportunity (God-forbid) arise, right?  Nope.  No clue.  Sometimes denial just makes me happier!  So, when I was asked to review the RobiComb, a lice zapping comb from Lice Guard, I had to (gulp) face the fact that head lice are an unfortunate reality for the average school-aged child and their family.

RobiComb Box

When I first read the box, and all its claims, I immediately felt a little more at ease.  Not only will this comb kill existing lice and their eggs, it also helps prevent lice from ever taking up residence on my kids’ scalps, and it says it’s EASY to use!  I have three kids…easy is key, and the hassle that head lice treatment is (or so I’ve heard) is one of the things that make lice scary to me.  Also, if you recall my review of BabyGanics diapers, I like the idea of the products that I use on my kids being non-toxic.  I don’t want unnecessary or excessive chemicals on their skin, ready to be absorbed into their little bodies!  So, the fact that this product is effective without the use of chemicals is is vitally important to me.  Other benefits to this product: it is small and easy to use, the directions are clear and concise, and determining whether or not my kids even have lice is simple because the comb emits a high pitched frequency that turns off whenever it encounters lice during use.

RobiComb Claims

When I say this product is easy to use, I mean it’s really easy to use.  To prepare your child’s (or anyone, for that matter) head for use, simply brush through dry hair so that it is free of knots and tangles.  This is especially important in our house as we have a lot of long, thick hair going on!  Once the hair has been brushed, divide it into sections (I divided my girls’ hair into quarters) and comb through each section with the tines of the RobiComb pressed to the scalp.

Use of RobiComb

It is important to ensure that the comb touches every part of the scalp to ensure that it is able to detect the presence of lice.  As I stated before, the comb emits an audible frequency that tells users it’s working.  Were it to encounter lice, the sound would stop momentarily while the electricity in the comb zaps the lice, killing them on the spot (In case you were wondering, my kids are in the clear as the high pitched sound never wavered during use…SCORE!).  Nifty, huh?  I thought so, too.  I plan to use this comb several times a weeks on each of my girls (the instructions say 5 minutes of use per week) to help prevent head lice.  However, should they ever contract them, I am also prepared to treat them without the use of harsh chemicals, and for that I am happy!

The RobiComb is available for $29.99 and can be purchased online at LiceGuard.com and nationwide at CVS and Walgreens

Have you had to deal with head lice yet this year?  Does the thought make you cringe, too?

Hey, all! My name is Abby. I am thirty years old and I live near St. Louis with my amazing family: my hot husband, and my three lovely daughters K (9 years), M (7 years), and A (2 yrs). I have the privilege of staying at home with my three girls and I wouldn’t change it for the world! Some of our hobbies include, but are not limited to: coloring, taking nature walks where we pick up every. single. bug. and blow every. single. dandelion.

Comments

  1. We JUST had a notice of lice at my daughter’s elementary school. It’s good to know that these products exist in the event that my family would ever need it ( I literally just knocked on wood!!)

    • We got one of those notes last year and it made me feel itchy! Good luck! Im using this comb on my girls as recommended for prevention for sure!

  2. This sounds like a great product. It sounds like something every parent should have.

  3. I don’t have kids, but my sister went through the lice nightmare with her 3-year old a few weeks ago. I’ll have to let her know about this product for the future; unfortunately, lice happens sometimes when kids are exposed to so many other children at daycare, school, or just in playing with them in the neighborhood!

  4. Wow, this is one nifty gadget! With school back in session it’s nice to know there is something you can use to help prevent it. Heck, elementary schools should invest in these asap! Thanks for sharing your review!

  5. Wow, that’s awesome! This is good just to have just in case!

  6. When my daughter was in preschool we were told she had lice. We treated her with those shampoos to kill the lice. Afterwards her scalp got so red and irritated. I don’t think she ever really had it, I didn’t see any. So, I really felt bad having to do that to her. Having this comb would make life so much easier and them and us. Thanks for sharing.

    • Any type of pesticide freaks me out when it comes to my kids! I used to work in PR and had a client related to that industry…read too many horror stories! So, this is right up my alley! I’ve heard those shampoos are very abrasive!

  7. My son got lice twice in school and it freaked me out. Thank God it was while he was at his dads house as I would not know what to do. I am so glad I came across this article. I am going to stockpile this stuff and share with my friends. Its something we don’t like to talk about but so happy we have on hand if they get it. EWWWW!!!!! Great product makes me less grossed out.

  8. This is one of my worst nightmares! Lucky for me I have boys so if I ever had to shave their heads I could. Thanks for bringing awareness to this product. You never know when it can happen to your kid. Now I know where to turn.

  9. We have the RobiComb too! I hope to never need to use it though..lice freak me out!

  10. just hearing the word lice makes me twitchy. i had it bad in 2nd grade. 31 years ago!!

  11. I hope I never have to deal with lice! But it’s good to know that there are chemical free products when needed. Thanks for a great review!

  12. Ugh, we had a bout of lice last year and it is was so hard to get rid of. This sounds like a really interesting product.

  13. My daughter had lice one time and they were so difficult to get rid of. I don’t think this product was around then, I sure do wish it would have been. I remember the combing and combing and dht elice never going away.

    • This product, as you probably saw in the pictures, has a very fine teeth, so if there are lice, it combs the dead bugs (after it zaps them!) out as well!

  14. oh my gosh…my son just brought a note home from school yesterday about lice in his class! Perfect timing!

  15. Eek! I hope i never need this but am happy this is out there if I need it!

  16. This sounds amazing. I’m constantly checking my girls especially when school starts! Every year we get notices sent home and I’m in a state of panic, begging the girls not to share hats, coats! I’ll definitely be checking this out!

  17. I actually had no idea that it was even possible to prevent them from coming. Good to know!

  18. Great tool and just in time for Lice season!

  19. My daughter had lice once, and it was terrible! This sounds like a great product

  20. When my daughter was in daycare and elementary school, it seemed like someone had lice everyday. Notices all the time. I am glad there is something to use now that doesn’t involve chemicals.

  21. This looks like a great product to get rid of those pesky critters!!

  22. I’ve heard many horror stories about lice. That sort of reminds me of a cat comb we had with close rolling teeth.

  23. I may need one of these now that my son is in school. I know that lice is a common problem in school. Thanks for sharing.
