We see a lot of the same misconceptions regarding lice removal from our Dallas clients. So we want to take to time to address some of these in this article.
In this article, Lice Lifters shares some facts you didn’t know about lice removal.
OTC Methods Aren’t Always Successful
Aside from the fact many over the counter treatments contain chemicals that can irritate the skin or cause other health issues, they aren’t always successful in taking care of both head lice and nits. Many of our clients try an at-home treatment and see partial success before coming to Lice Lifters to eradicate the rests.
You Can Still Have Lice Even If Your Scalp Doesn’t Itch
From what we’ve seen, only about 50% of people infected with head lice experience any kind of itching on their scalp. That means that an equal amount of people experience no itchiness but still need treatment to eradicate their head lice. So stop by for one of our head checks if you think you or your kids may be dealing with head lice.
Lice Can Only Live on the Human Scalp
Head lice cannot live on your household pets. So don’t worry about your kids getting lice from your dog or cat. They can only receive them from head-to-head contact with another human. That being said, lice can survive temporarily on other surfaces. This is why it’s often wisest not to share hair brushes or hats with other people who may be infected to prevent lice.
