Five Things You Didn’t Know About Treating Head Lice

Treating Head LiceIf your child has come home with head lice, you’re probably looking for the best way to make sure those pests are taken care of for good. At Lice Lifters, we understand that. And we want to make sure you know these five things about treating head lice.

1. You Have to Take Care of Head Lice and the Nits

All too often we hear from families that just used a head lice shampoo or comparable products and didn’t take care of the nits (eggs) too. This means you’re likely to have another outbreak as soon as you thought you were over it, which means you need more lice treatment.

2. Mint if Your New Best Friend.

Products like out Lice Lifters Nit Removal Mousse or Lice Lifters Mint Detangler Spray are safe for you and your family, but act as a natural repellent for head lice. Treating head lice doesn’t have to be a smelly miserable process.

3. Step Away From the Selfie Stick

In our culture of all selfies, all the time, it’s no wonder so many kids deal with head lice. Since lice are transferred by direct head-to-head contact, this is a concern. So, if you’ve already heard about head lice at other DFW area schools, encourage your kids to skip the selfie.

4. Your Scalp Doesn’t Always Always Itch When You Have Head Lice

From what we’ve seen, only about half of children of adults dealing with head lice experience itching. So even if your kid isn’t complaining of an itchy scalp, you might want to consider scheduling one of our head checks for lice removal.

5. You Need to Treat Your House Too

After you’ve treated the lead lice on your child, you certainly don’t want them coming back. Don’t forget to clean any bedding, stuffed animals, clothes, or furniture surfaces that might house any lingering head lice.
