How To Navigate The World Of Lice Treatment Options

Lice Treatment Garland, TX

Lice can be one of the most stressful, pesky little bugs to remove from your full head of hair. For children, lice can be an incredibly embarrassing event to experience, as they may have contracted them at school amongst the other kids. The nurse will probably remove them from class in front of everyone, causing a scene. Lice are now more difficult than ever to remove. Thankfully, professional treatment has come a long way over the years.

Chemical Treatments

The worst method to remove pesky lice from your head is by using chemical products or treatments. Two well-known products are Nix and Rid, over-the-counter treatments that contain pyrethrin and permethrin. These items are generally recommended by those who really don’t understand lice or how to remove them effectively.
However, chemical treatments have been known to be quite controversial because of the potential damage to the human scalp. Headaches and nausea have been experienced in almost all users. The chemicals within these treatments are simply not worth the minuscule respite they may offer for a moment.

Professional Help

Professional help is probably one of the most effective methods to remove lice from one’s head without having to resort to dangerous chemicals. This method requires swallowing your pride a tad and seeking the necessary help to rid yourself of a potentially dangerous infestation that can be spread around.
A professional will have to inspect every strand of hair on the end, removing the lice or lice eggs using a fine-tooth comb or a special lice comb. Depending on the length of your hair, this entire process could take a few hours to complete. Be prepared for a lengthy rest in the chair if this is the case.
Removing head lice is more difficult than it ever has been. Most people will still be infested if they try home-based remedies because they truly do not work anymore. Lice have evolved into something far stronger. If you have questions or want to setup your own lice treatments, give Lice Lifters a call at 972-805-1308.
