Nagging Nits: What to Do When They Won’t Go Away

Nagging NitsIs there anything more annoying than continuing to find nits after an over the counter treatment didn’t work? Yes, you could be facing another head lice outbreak. Nits can be difficult to remove. Lice Lifters makes it a priority to educate our DFW clients on what to do when those nagging nits won’t go away. Read on to learn more.

Remind Me, What’s a Nit?

The nit is the egg form of head lice. The nit is usually tightly attached to the hair near the scalp. They are attached by a glue-like substance that makes them hard to remove. Nits are not addressed by many common lice removal treatments. So, it’s important to know the best way to remove them to prevent the possibility of a second outbreak.

How Do I Get Rid of Them?

Let us help! Our nit comb is specially designed to aid in lifting the nits from the hair strand and off the scalp. Nits are held onto the strand with a kind of “glue” that can make them difficult to fully remove without the comb. Our trained Lice Lifticians are experienced and proficient in coming through the entire scalp and removing each and every nit from your child’s hair.

Be Proactive

If you’ve heard of head lice issues in DFW, be on the lookout. Nits are easier to see in natural lights. So when you child comes home from camp, their friend’s house, or some other place where it’s possible they came in contact with head lice, take a look. Be especially sure to focus your attention near the scalp, because that’s where nits are more likely to be.
