The Importance of a Comb Out

Importance of a Comb OutLice Lifters prioritizes educating DFW families on how to deal with head lice. We know you and your children have busy lives, and we want to get you back on track as soon as possible. Don’t make the mistake of thinking a specialized shampoo is all you need in order to eradicate head lice and nits. A comb out is an important part of the process.

What is a Nit?

The nit is the unhatched eggs form of head lice. The nit is usually glued to the hair near the scalp. Nits are not addressed by many common life removal treatments. So, it’s important to know the best way to remove them.

Remove All the Nits

As mentioned above, it’s important to remove not just head lice but also nits from the scalp. That’s why we offer a wide range of products and services at Lice Lifters, so you have options. Our nit comb is specially designed to aid in lifting the nits from the hair strand and off the scalp. Nits are held onto the strand with a kind of “glue” that can make them difficult to fully remove without the comb.

More Than the Average Comb Out

When you understand that just a few missed nits can start the lice cycle all over again, you want to make sure you trust professionals who understand the importance of a thorough comb out. Every comb-out at our Lice Lifters treatment center is done with precision, professionalism, and patience. With our Lice Lifticians on your side, you have nothing to worry about.

If you did an at-home treatment, you may still see a few lingering dead lice on the scalp for a day or two, depending on how well the hair was washed following treatment. But if there are living lice, or nits present, give us a call to discuss your options.

Your Children: How to Prevent Lice Transfer

Lice Treatment The Colony, TXIn this season of spending time with family and friends, going to camp and on vacation, it can also be a busy time for head lice in the DFW area. Life Lifters put together a few helpful hints on how to prevent lice transfer.

Why are Head Lice a Problem in the Summer?

Head lice thrive more in warm months. The reason for this upswing in head lice infestations have more to do with the fact that kids are out of class and doing more active and interactive things like:

  • Attending summer/day camps
  • Attending summer classes/sports
  • Hanging out with friends
  • Going on vacation to crowded places

Things like summer camps can especially put your child in close contact with others. The likelihood of lice moving from one person to the next increases dramatically in these kinds of environments.

Don’t Use Selfie Sticks

In our culture of all selfies, it’s no wonder so many of our kids deal with head lice. Since lice are transferred by direct head-to- head contact, this is a no brainer. Put the selfie stick away.

What Else Can I Do??

Have your kids bring their own pillows, brushes, and hats to sleepovers to avoid sharing with friends. When your child comes back from camp or from spending time at a friend’s, check for nits. Nits are more easy to see in natural light, so take a few minutes to see if you notice any nits on your child’s scalp. Bring your child in for one of our head checks that we offer at Lice Lifters. Drop by and let our certified Lice Lifticians take a look for themselves ass see if you need to worry about a head lice treatment.

What You Need to Know About Lice Treatment Ingredients

Lice Treatment IngredientsSummer time is a time to get together with family and friends, enjoy the day and each other’s company. It can also be a popular time for head lice in Dallas. Before you run out and grab that bargain over the counter treatment from the corner store, let’s look at what you need to know about lice treatment ingredients.

Over the Counter Treatments Aren’t Always Successful

Many over the counter treatments contain chemicals and ingredient that can irritate the scalp of your child and even potentially cause other health issues. Not only that, they aren’t always successful in eradicating both head lice and nits to free your child of these pests. Many of our Dallas clients attempt an at-home treatment only to have a negative experience before coming to Lice Lifters to fully address the outbreak.

Side Effects of Chemical Treatments

Treatments for head lice are generally considered safe and when used as directed. Some over-the-counter treatments can cause itching or mild burning caused by inflammation of the skin on the scalp in reaction to the ingredients in the treatment. Most products used to treat head lice are pesticides that can be absorbed through the skin.

Things to think about when considering a pesticide lice treatment also include if the person has asthma, if there are scratches or broken skin in the area that will be treated, if there are medications being taken that could interact negatively with the pesticides. Each of these circumstances could react negatively with an OTC treatment.

What Works

Lice Lifters worked with chemists to engineer an all-natural killing agent that blocks the airways of head lice and puts an end to live lice activity in 10 minutes or less. Our treatments are kind and safe for you and your family and they won’t have that harsh chemical smell that comes with other treatments.
