For years, the only head lice remedies were to manually go through each strand of hair to “nit-pick” or comb out all of the lice and lice eggs (nits). Head lice have been around since the first reported humans: Cleopatra was buried with golden lice combs! More recently, head lice shampoos, over-the-counter treatments, and prescriptions from doctors were introduced. They were very effective…until they weren’t.
Pesticides in traditional store-bought lice treatments kill only 25% of lice because they don’t work on today’s pesticide-resistant super lice. They do not kill lice eggs either. One must comb out the bugs and nits which can require hours of combing for days or even weeks. It’s a ton of work and if just one nit is missed, the cycle can start over again leading to the discovery of another infestation in 3-4 weeks.
“We’ve heard heart-wrenching stories of parents replacing furniture and carpeting, burning their children’s heads with irons and throwing away favorite toys in an effort to rid their homes of head lice,” says Lisa Liss, manager of Lice Clinics of America – Los Angeles. “And while this is going on at home, the child is enduring discomfort, lost sleep, embarrassment and perhaps bullying at school. Plus the hours of combing their hair. Plus the frustration of discovering a few weeks later they’re still dealing with lice.”
“Mature lice layover 100 eggs during their life span, so it’s really difficult to get ahead of lice,” says Liss. “Topical treatments don’t kill lice eggs, so they keep hatching new bugs. The vicious cycle continues.” Because there are so many eggs laid, you can get caught in the lice life cycle for weeks, months, and, in some cases, years. After a few weeks of purchasing and re-purchasing ineffective products and spending hours combing and cleaning, the costs add up. Parents can avoid this stress and wasted time and money because Lice Clinics of America solves the lice problem in about an hour, once and for all.
