Bring in the Big Combs: Why a Lice Professional Can Get Rid of a Case that You Can’t

Bring in the Big Combs: Why a Lice Professional Can Get Rid of a Case that You Can’t
Updated on

You have tried to get rid of your child’s lice infestation but it is stubborn...really stubborn. You don’t want to pay for a lice professional but you also don’t want to throw good money after bad trying to get rid of the bugs that really don’t want to leave! With some things in life, having a professional take charge is the sensible option.

Head lice are an inconvenient, disruptive, obnoxious, sometimes unavoidable, and, oftentimes, pricey part of life. While we can’t control how annoying they can be, we often try to control how much money we shell out to get rid of them. It’s an easy trap to fall into when you see an ‘all-inclusive’ kit on the drugstore shelf and think to yourself, how hard can it be? The steps seem easy: use chemical shampoo, and comb out the casualties to reveal lice-free hair. But as too many can attest to, it just doesn’t seem to work out that way.

Although the up-front costs of professional lice treatment can seem disproportionate to the do-it-yourself ones, we have plenty of reasons why professional lice treatments are generally more cost-effective and just plain effective when compared to the DIY plans. Here, we detail just a few:

Chemicals Often Just Do Not Work to Kill Lice

First, and perhaps most central, is the fact that chemicals just aren’t that effective. While the allure of a one-and-done chemical treatment is strong, research year after year shows that the chemicals found in such kits don’t actually work that well. What’s even worse is that the use of such chemicals over time, and having some lice survive them, has led to most lice now being dubbed “Super Lice.” These Super Lice are essentially untouchable by traditional chemical DIY treatments. Lice professionals at LiceDoctors don’t use a single chemical in their treatments. Nope—LiceDoctors technicians rely on non-toxic, thorough methods with an incredibly high rate of success.

Natural Products Alone Will Not Get Rid of a Lice Infestation

Perhaps you’re thinking, “Well, I wasn’t going to use chemicals anyway.

I’ve got plenty of all-natural remedies that seem to work from these online lice forums.” Unfortunately, using these methods yourself is often still not as effective as having a professional come in. This can be due to a variety of reasons: maybe the remedy just isn’t effective, or you’re not doing it thoroughly enough to properly eradicate all of the lice and nits or you can’t reach the back of your own to get out all the eggs or bugs. And don’t overlook an extremely important factor...nothing penetrates the shell of the nit. You can pour anything you want on your lice infestation but it won’t seep through to eliminate nits. This ultimately leads to a waste of time, money, and to a lot of frustration.

Professionals as a Last Resort?

Unfortunately, many clients use professionals as a last resort. Often, the money and time has already been shelled out on those DIY protocols, starting with home remedies (Vinegar? Mayonnaise? Chugging a glass of water while burning sage and listening to smooth jazz?), then moving onto the chemical kits when those don’t seem to be working. After a few rounds, the chemicals don’t seem to be working either. At this point, many clients have spent upwards of $100-$200+ and hours upon hours they can’t get back.
