Head Lice Products: How to Avoid Wasting Money

Head Lice Products: How to Avoid Wasting Money
Updated on 
May 31, 2019

Nobody likes to spend money on products that are ineffective. Below, LiceDoctors lice technician, Nikki, advises you on what you need and do not need to combat head lice.

Those who have suffered from head lice are often not strangers to the initial investment of products. I recently took care of a family of 9 individuals (all who were victims of lice) who shared that they had purchased over $500 worth of products once they discovered that they had been exposed to lice.

I can never stress enough how important it is to do thorough research before splurging on impulse. The reason being, is that studies have shown that lice are now becoming immune to the typical over-the-counter resistant shampoos and conditioners. In addition to this, the majority of lice combs sold in store are not built in a way to ensure complete removal of lice. In fact, it can take hours of tiresome combing if you lack the proper equipment (and you still may be unsuccessful!)

It is vital that every louse and nit be removed from the head in order to prevent further infestation. Therefore, all who are affected should do their research to make sure that they are investing in the right products while saving a huge coin.

Choosing a Nit Comb

Lice are extremely small and can easily

be missed by the untrained eye. So, if they were to be combed out of the hair, it is necessary to use a comb with teeth that are very close together, but still allows the hair to pass through with ease.

LiceDoctor’s Terminator Nit Free Comb is especially manufactured to remove even the tiniest microscopic pests and debris within the hair. Made of metal, it is sturdy enough to withstand even the woolliest hair without ever bending or breaking.

 

What are the Safest and Most Affordable Repellents?

When it comes to finding lice repellants,

there are a boat-load of options to choose from. However, there aren’t many safe, yet affordable products. Most lice products contain harmful pesticides that could cause damage to children and adults who are exposed to them while simultaneously being harmless to the lice itself. You can buy a regular bottle of mousse or gel at the drug store which puts a protective barrier around the hair. LiceDoctors’ Lice Repellent Spray also creates a barrier and has the additional property of a peppermint scent which helps to repel lice. 

 

When you find head lice, try not to panic. Remember that head lice are a nuisance, but they will not make you sick. Most important to keep in mind is that there are ways to get rid of them. Take your time and do some research before you run out and spend money on products that do not work. LiceDoctors has cleaned lice out of more than 450,000 heads without ever using potentially harmful and ineffective chemicals.

Why Do Head Lice Spread So Quickly Within Families?

Families in close contact with each other are the most likely to pass along lice. Over three quarters of the families LiceDoctors has treated have multiple cases of head lice. In a family where a child has head lice, especially when the child is young, the mom is highly likely to also have lice. Siblings are also likely to have contracted a case, but to a slightly lesser degree than mom. Why is that? Head lice are extremely contagious. If they have access to another head, especially if the one they are on is crowded with other lice and eggs, they will take advantage of that opportunity.
