The Shepherd Method: Strand‑by‑Strand Nit Removal

The Shepherd MethodTM 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 MethodTM provides ongoing training and certification for those seeking a career in lice removal as well as conducts clinical research in product testing and data collection. The Shepherd Institute, established in 2004, was founded by Katie Shepherd after years of studying lice removal products and techniques. Ms. Shepherd is well renowned and considered to be one of the top experts in the Head Lice field. She focuses much of her time now on research, education and training.
