5 Powerful Head Lice Removal Tips

by Pathlie Lee Business consultant

Having head lice is embarrassing and uncomfortable. If you want to say goodbye to this problem, here are five tips to help you get rid of adult and juvenile lice that may be thriving in your head.

 

Look for a salon

Use of over-the-counter products for head lice treatment may work in your case, the Harvard Medical School says. That or you could try and look for salons that offer lice-removal services. Do your homework and find out which salons in your area can provide you with the options you need. Check out feedback and reviews of their services to help you decide.

 

Give it enough time

Do not expect results overnight, though. Give the shampoo or rinses about seven to ten days to work. That should be enough time to tell you if something is happening or not, if the problem is getting worse or if you got lucky and your research has paid off. By giving it enough time, you can figure out with ease if the treatment method has worked remarkably well for you or if you need to start considering other options.

 

Nit comb the hair

Nit combing is also a valuable step in the process. While this is time-consuming and requires your patience as well as perseverance, it can reduce the number of live lice as well as eggs in your head. Another reason not to ignore or skip this step is the fact that it is a non-chemical method to solve the problem. It can help and has no side effects. That makes it an ideal removal method.

 

Do not panic

If your kids have head lice, do not panic, the Health says. Keep your cool. Lice are not harmful to health, though they can be uncomfortable and can prove embarrassing for your child. By keeping a steady head on your shoulders, you can figure out the right head lice treatment with ease. Also, get ready for weeks or months of vigilance in killing off the lice, as you need an approach that kills both the adult lice and the tiny eggs or nits in your hair. Also, keep in mind that your child will take his cue from you. If you are panicky about the head lice, that can affect the way your child will react to the situation.

 

Do the basics

Aside from hair treatments, make sure you delouse your home. Wash your bedding along with those of your child. Include the pillows and even any stuffed animals you find and the comforter. Boil them for a few minutes after you have soaked them in ammonia. As for your rugs or furniture, you’ll want to vacuum them and keep your child off from the furniture for about 48 hours since that is the maximum number of hours that louse can live off the human head.

These are just some of the most common and powerful removal tips to get rid of head lice. Make every louse disappear from your hair, home and life with these tips.
