Head lice is one of the most common occurrences in the United States. About 3 to 12 million infestation cases are reported every year, with cases particularly high in children between the ages of 3-11. It’s also shown to be more common in girls than in boys. This is believed to be because of transmission practices occurring more often between girls caused by head-to-head contact.
These wingless parasites can be easily passed from person to person through head-to-head contact during hugs, picture taking, sleepovers, and more. And once you have head lice, if not treated early enough symptoms can get progressively worse and more easily transmittable.
Needless to say, there are plenty of options available to treat and remove head lice permanently in Jacksonville. At Fresh Heads we offer the finest services, with our expert specialists and patented AirAllé technology to ensure we treat the condition in just one session.
Is It Lice?
An itch here and there might seem like nothing. But if you think you have come into contact with someone who has lice, it’s best to do a head check as quickly as possible.
The first sign that one might have the condition is that there is an unbearable amount of scratching. These bugs feed on the blood of our scalps, so the itching occurs when they bite or crawl around. Sometimes you can feel the bug crawling, particularly behind the ears or the base of the neck.
To be completely sure a head check needs to be done. While we encourage our customers to visit our clinic to receive one by a professional, head checks can also be performed at home. First divide the hair into sections and check the hotspots: base of the neck, over and behind the ears, and the crown. Then you’ll take a special comb and hold it against the scalp and pull through the lengths of the hair. Lastly, you’ll strum the comb over a cup filled with water to catch anything left behind in the comb. If you have lice, you’ll either find bugs themselves or nits (eggs). They will float and be translucent.
Removal Options That Do Not Work
Do it yourself lice removal simply does not work. There are many options of DIY lice removal treatments you can find on the internet. Such as mayo, coconut oil, or tea tree oil. Although at home options seem appealing they do not actually remove lice. The marketing does not tell you about the toxins that fill the products. Not to mention you will need to do multiple rounds when trying at home remedies.
The Best Option To Remove Lice
The only option that completely gets rid of the lice is visiting a professional. At Fresh Heads Lice Removal we have the AirAlle signature treatment. This machine uses warm air to completely dehydrate the lice infestation. This treatment is a one time treatment and has a 45 day guarantee.
