"The Shepherd Method™" Strand-by-Strand Nit Removal
“The Shepherd Method™” is a safe,
non-toxic means of treating head lice which utilizes a strand-by-strand
technique that ensures every hair has been examined and all lice evidence has
been removed. It incorporates many
safety nets which ensure that the hair has been checked and rechecked, allowing
individuals to be treated effectively once and monitored after that. Although
generally a long process, The Shepherd Method takes no short cuts and effectively
treats head lice.
“The Shepherd Method™”, founded by
Katie Shepherd, an expert in head lice, their treatment and removal, and in the
counseling of parents and children about head lice, serves a preeminent model for
louse-removal facilities. The Shepherd Institute, founded by Ms. Shepherd
herself, provides ongoing training and certification for those seeking a career
in lice removal as well as conducts clinical research in product testing and
Determined to make a difference in her community, Ms. Shepherd organized an outreach program in 1998 that offered hands-on assistance designed to help families to eliminate the irritating and ongoing cycle of head lice. Shortly after, her efforts evolved into a non-profit organization that has helped parents around the world.
Thanks to her many ongoing collaborations with universities and researchers, Ms. Shepherd provides people with the most effective treatment options available and the most up-to-date lice information in the industry.
