How Effective Are Preventative Lice Care Products?

As soon as your child comes home with a notice from their school stating that lice have been spotted in their classmates’ hair, you’ll probably want to look for preventative products that can protect their head. A quick online search will reveal that there are many such products, but the question is, do they work? Well, maybe.

How They Work

Most of the head lice prevention products on the market claim to be “natural” methods of repelling the little insects. They usually contain oils like citronella, tea tree, lemongrass, and rosemary.

The Concerns

Because most preventative products contain natural ingredients, they typically aren’t regulated by the FDA. Also, they can be flammable, irritating, and even dangerous for children. There isn’t enough research available to prove whether or not they are truly effective, and the risks may outweigh the possible benefits.

What Works Better

Instead of wasting your money on potentially harmful, ineffective preventative products, teach your children how to actively avoid lice. Tell them to steer clear of head-to-head contact and sharing personal belongings, especially things like hats and hair brushes. These preventative techniques will go much further than most products you can buy.

If worst comes to worst and your child does contract lice, even if they tried to avoid them, the best thing to do is to reach out to a professional lice removal service like Lice Lifters Treatment Centers.
