Does Olive Oil Kill Nits?
If you scour the Internet you know that it is a wonderful source of information and mis-information. There are some folks who weigh in to say that they have heard that olive oil is ineffective in getting rid of lice.
At LiceDoctors, we are not guessing or relying on hearsay. Technicians are at the homes of many families every day of the year and have treated hundreds of thousands of folks with unparalleled success. Of course, we are not saying that you should pour olive oil on the head once and walk away: one and done. It doesn’t work that way.
Olive oil can be a helpful aid when attempting to get rid of head lice. It lubricates the hair, making the comb better able to get through, and it helps to detach glued nits (lice eggs) from the strands. The oil also slows down frenetic bugs and if left in long enough will actually kill the lice lice.
For the treatment to be fully effective, you need to extract all nits from the hair. You do not want to leave any nits stuck to the hair as eventually they will hatch and about 10 days later you will have crawling, breeding lice on the head. This is a source of never-ending frustration for parents who have painstakingly combed and picked for hours and who then find their work was for nothing.
The bottom line is that olive oil is very helpful as part of a lice treatment protocol. It will loosen eggs and kill active bugs. For the next step, it is best to bring in a professional service. Because you need to pull out all of the nits, experience matters. At LiceDoctors we have a lot of experience with nit picking; the kind of experience that enables us to remove the nits from the hair. If you find lice in your hair, LiceDoctors can help you today. Call us in the Columbia, South Carolina area at (803) 497-9034. No need to struggle with head lice when LiceDoctors offers a safe treatment option that work and are affordable!
