For years, the only head lice removal remedies were to manually go through each strand of hair to “nit-pick” or comb out all of the lice and lice eggs (nits). Head lice have been around since the beginning of time. Even Cleopatra was buried with golden lice combs! More recently, head lice shampoos, over-the-counter treatments, and prescriptions from doctors were introduced as effective solutions to dealing with head lice. In most cases, they were very effective… until they weren’t.
Pesticides in traditional store-bought lice treatments only kill 25% of lice because they don’t kill today’s pesticide-resistant super lice, nor do they kill the lice eggs. It’s up to you, the parent or caregiver, to comb out the lice and the nits which can require hours of combing for days or even weeks! This means a ton of work for parents and caregivers. If even one nit is missed, the cycle can start over again and you will have an active infestation back in 3-4 weeks.
Some parents/caregivers strip the bed and wash sheets, pillowcases, and pajamas. However, this doesn’t necessarily kill lice. Lice can hold their breath for up to six hours, so running them through a wash cycle or jumping into a swimming pool doesn’t mean the lice will drown.
“We’ve heard heart wrenching stories of parents saran-wrapping their home furniture and beds, burning their children’s heads with irons and throwing away their children’s favorite toys in an effort to rid their homes of head lice,” says Jen Mortensen, owner of Lice Clinics of America – Kingwood.
Meanwhile your child is enduring physical discomfort, potential embarrassment, bullying at school, and let’s not forget the hours of combing through their hair.
“Mature lice lay 50 to 150 eggs during their life span, so it’s important to get ahead of lice while you can,” says Mortensen. “It’s important to know that topical OTC treatments don’t kill lice eggs, so the eggs continue to hatch after multiple treatments. The vicious ‘lice cycle’ continues on and on.”
Because so many eggs are laid, you can get caught in the head lice cycle for weeks, months, and in rare cases, years. Over-the-counter treatments are no longer effective, and after a few weeks of purchasing and re-purchasing them, spending hours and hours combing and cleaning, the costs add up.
