How to Remove Head Lice Properly

The exact number of head lice infestations per year is hard to track. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates around 6 to 12 million cases each year in the country. Most of these cases are among children ages 3 to 11, give or take. These are schoolchildren who share their hair products, including hats, scarfs, and combs. It only takes one misstep to spread head lice through an entire school district. Once you receive that letter, it’s time to act. Here’s how to remove head lice properly.

Know the Facts

Head lice can only crawl; they cannot fly, jump, or hop their way to their next victim. Typically, lice will only survive outside of the head for 24 hours. Furthermore, head lice infestations spread via direct head-to-head contact. You’re more likely to receive head lice from a friend or family member rather than a stranger who came into close contact.

Everyday situations that often lead to lice transfer include:

  • School
  • Sitting in close proximity on public transportation or the couch
  • Sleeping in the same bed
  • Sharing combs, brushes, towels, and other hair products

How to Remove Head Lice

First and foremost, do not rush to the drugstore for a chemical treatment product. These “solutions” are typically harmful and do not help head lice. Instead, they cause adverse side effects, such as rashes. You will want an all-natural treatment, without any insecticides included.

The key to success is a 3-step method: an extensive head check, followed by a thorough comb-out, then the application of an all-natural killing agent. When combined, all three steps work in tandem to kill head lice and prevent further spread.

Safe, Natural Treatments for Head Lice

Lice are troublesome. If your family has ever experienced an infestation, then you know of the agony of trying to rid the household of the problem altogether. However, with patience and diligence, head lice can be treated safely and with natural solutions. Many parents will immediately head to the local drugstore for over-the-counter treatment products. Don’t be fooled, though. These products are loaded with chemicals and are harmful to the scalp.

3-Step Lice Treatment

Once you learn you or a family member has lice, it’s time for treatment to take place. Trust in professionals. Do not wait for lice to disappear naturally, or for a chemical treatment to work without rashes. That will not happen.

Professional treatment involves an intense comb-out session that helps to remove most adult lice with ease. Then, once the comb-out is complete, an all-natural solution is applied to the scalp under a trendy shower cap.

From here, the next treatment willtake place at home. Following all the directions of your lice treatment specialist is crucial. Doing so could mean a healthy scalp free of head lice. Ignoring instructions, on the other hand, could mean persistent head lice that continue to spread.

Why Go Natural?

Natural lice treatments are the way to go. Typically, no one is impressed with the chemicals and side effects that cause more problems than they help. Only natural lice treatments prevent skin irritation or other adverse side effects that may typically follow harsher procedures. This is your child’s scalp we’re talking about. Children deserve only the very best, and non-harmful options on the market. Anything else is a no-go!

Ways to Prevent Head Lice From Spreading

Head lice are a common nuisance. Researchers estimate over 12 million individual cases of head lice each year throughout the United States. Many of these cases are children. Kids do not have the same inhibitions as adults. They share their favorite hats or scarves and play with other children too closely on the playground, which in turn spreads head lice relatively quickly. When an infestation arrives, we as parents work hard to prevent the spread of head lice.

Useful Steps to Prevent and Control Head Lice

When it comes to preventing and controlling a head lice outbreak, we recommend the following steps:

  • Avoid head-to-head contact: Kids are kids, and telling them to avoid head-to-head contact with other children may not be met with much agreement. Still, tell them anyway. Head lice cannot fly, hop, or jump; they transmit via direct contact.
  • Avoid sharing hair products: Tell your children not to share their combs, brushes, bandanas, hair bands, or towels – anything that would go on their head.
  • Act wisely: If lice enter your home, act prudently. Extreme cleaning does not help. Washing your pillowcases, on the other hand, is useful. Spending time and money on housecleaning is a waste and not necessary.

Seek Treatment

The most efficient method to control and prevent the further spread of head lice is to seek prompt treatment from a professional. You will want to undergo a thorough comb-out, followed by non-toxic treatment solutions.

A 3-step treatment method will ensure lice are gone. One in-office treatment will be accompanied by at-home follow up steps. It’s crucial to follow all directions from your treatment specialist.
