How can I make using a nit comb less pully?

If my daughter catches head lice, how do I check myself ?
In an ideal world, you would ask someone else to check your hair for you. Nit comb your hair and ensure you have a white towel on your shoulders/ground to see if head lice are falling. If you find them, then do treat your hair!
Should I get in a routine now checking everyday? Or is once a week enough?
We suggest visually checking the hair line after every wash and detection combing once a week, unless there's an outbreak in which case it will need to be more frequent.
