 SUPER LICE – WHAT ARE THEY?

 SUPER LICE – WHAT ARE THEY?
Updated on 
September 13, 2019

Super lice – yes there is such a thing, and they now outnumber regular head lice in terms of lice infestations.  Known to be more stubborn to get rid of, what exactly are they?  How are they different from regular head lice? Do they wear capes?  

Let’s lay out some facts.

Fact #1 – Super lice are mutated head lice.

Over time, head lice have genetically mutated to become resistant to the active ingredients in conventional over the counter (OTC) treatments.

Fact #2 – They cannot be treated with traditional over the counter treatments.  

The ingredients in OTC treatments are chemicals, and are not organic in nature.  They have been known to burn the scalp and leave behind residue on the hair. Chemicals do nothing to eradicate the eggs.

Fact #3 – They do not wear capes.

The only difference between super lice and regular head lice is their resistance to traditional treatments.  They are exactly the same in every other way.


Fact #4 – LiceDoctors technicians’ all natural treatments work on all head lice, super or regular.

Techs use oil to suffocate live bugs and then we thoroughly comb out the eggs the lice have left behind.  It is safe for all ages, and more effective than the traditional OTC treatments.
