About Head Lice

Why don’t lice shampoos and other formulas work?

Like many species, the ultimate goal is survival. Lice and nits eventually develop a resistance to these chemicals. They become completely unaffected, leaving those special shampoos useless.

If shampoos don’t work, then what does work?

‘Combing’ is an effective way of physically removing head lice and eggs for good. Natural ingredients should be used as a preliminary treatment to soften the hair before combing.

Who should be screened for head lice?

At the first sign of lice, every member of the family should be checked right away. Friends, teachers and other close people could also have contracted head lice. Infestations must be taken care of immediately to prevent a harmful epidemic.

Why should I seek professional head lice removal?

Professional service is the only way to ensure complete removal of all lice and nits. Lice removal can be strenuous and time consuming. An expert has a trained eye, as well as the endurance to continuously pick lice and eggs until the job is done.

What steps should be taken after treatment?

All items, such as bedding, clothes, hats, and plush toys, must be washed. Furniture, mattresses, rugs and other items require a thorough vacuuming. Soak items like brushes and combs in ammonia for at least 5 minutes. Other items can be placed into an airtight bag for a minimum of two weeks to completely smother the remaining parasites.

What do head lice look like?

Head lice are similar in size and shape to a sesame seed. Eggs, also called ‘nits’ will appear white
or yellow and are attached to the hair shaft. Often lice appear to take on the color of the host’s hair.
