What is the best way to eliminate head lice? Do chemical lice treatments work?
MANY CHEMICAL TREATMENTS ARE NO LONGER EFFECTIVE AND MAY HAVE HEALTH-RELATED SIDE EFECTS
Lice have become resistant to chemical shampoos (Google “super lice”). As a head lice treatment service, we get many phone calls daily from parents who have tried chemical head lice treatments that failed. After using these products, they still see nits and even live bugs in the hair. To add insult to injury, they are upset because now they have put chemicals on their children’s heads, and they didn’t even help. According to Scorecard.org, "Seizures, behavioral changes, attention deficit disorders, brain injury, skin diseases, and even death have been reported to the United States-based National Pediculosis Association's registry by people who have used chemical treatments to get rid of head lice or scabies". Of course these reactions are clearly extreme, but why take a chance with your child’s health?
WHAT IS A NATURAL TREATMENT FOR LICE?
The best way to remove head lice is to have a professional lice technician comb through the hair using a professional lice comb. Oils are combed through the hair and the lice are extracted. After this, the technician meticulously picks out any remaining nits. You can try this on your own, but the nits (lice eggs) are tiny and camouflage against the hair. In other words, without a lot of practice, it is very hard to find and get out all of the nits. You have to pull off all of the nits from the hair or they will stay and hatch. That is what happens to a lot of people before they find us. For more information on Natural Treatments for Lice, check out this article from our Education Center.
