Nits: Ticking Lice Bombs

Posted on Tue, Apr 10, 2012 under

Getting rid of lice is easy, but keeping lice at bay is something else entirely. Lice eggs, or nits, are much smaller than lice making them harder to comb out. Since they are physically attached to the hair they are harder to dislodge than full-grown lice. Many people think they have gotten rid of head lice, and they have, but the eggs stay and hatch creating a whole new generation of lice to talk their place.Lice and nits


Lice and nits respond to different types of treatment so you need to make sure any lice remedies you use eradicate both. Lice use special chemicals in their saliva to glue their nits to your head. Many remedies use harsh chemicals that make the hair so dry the ‘glue’ doesn’t hold. Lice Busters natural lice treatment instead uses a specially manufactured comb with fine tooth pins to remove lice and nits from the hair.


By using a remedy that removes both lice and nits you ensure that the lice do not return after treatment. Make sure to also inspect hoodies, jackets, pillows and hair brushes for lice as that is another way they can re-infect you and your family.
