Mayonnaise will not get rid of this little girl's head lice.

Why Mayonnaise Is Not an Effective Home Remedy for Head Lice

Because of the many home remedies on the Internet that promise to give an affordable way to deal with lice, most parents think that they no longer need to have professionals treat their children. However, you should always evaluate the feasibility and safety of any solution, regardless of how harmless or affordable it may seem.

Breaking Down the Mayonnaise Solution

Many ingredients have been purported to be cheap and reliable home remedy solutions to delousing, such as olive oil and Listerine [link to Does Listerine Kill Lice]. One infamous home remedy for lice is the mayonnaise solution.

Dealing with a lice outbreak is a two-part problem: dealing with live lice and eliminating dormant eggs. If you end up treating only one or the other, you’ll have to start over in treating it. Most home solutions attempt to solve the problem through suffocation. However, know that head lice can survive without air for over six hours, which quickly turns the ‘hassle-free’ treatment into a long agonizing ordeal.

Considering the Duration of the Treatment

The mayonnaise solution recommends that you put a bountiful amount of mayonnaise on your child’s head for up to six hours. Logistically, you’d be wasting at least a few cans of good mayonnaise, which is not only hard on the nose but also harmful to your child’s eyes. However even after 6 hours, the adult lice will still be alive and waiting there for you and your child.

Dealing with Lice Eggs

In addition to the fact that mayonnaise has no effect on adult lice, it also does absolutely nothing to remove the presence of lice eggs, which cling safely encased to the individual hair shafts. You would have to try to comb through greasy mayonnaise hair with a lice comb to individually comb out every lice egg.

Hidden Dangers of Mayonnaise

You still might think that subjecting your child to the foul stench of mayonnaise for 12+ hours is worth trying. However, leaving it on your child for an extended period can lead to burns and allergies. Other incidents have been reported of parents, in an attempt to contain the mess of mayonnaise on a moving child, having placed plastic wrap on their children’s heads. This is a definite danger.

In addition, when a child is exposed too frequently to an ingredient, they may develop allergies in the long term. With the different types of food that contain mayonnaise, you’d be making a challenging life to your child in being wary of what they eat. And to risk all of these complications for a treatment that won’t work is simply not worth it.

Lice Treatment in Jacksonville, Orlando, and Savannah

The mayonnaise treatment is a time-wasting and ineffective way to solve lice outbreaks. In the end, it’s best that you seek professional lice treatment services that give fast solutions rather than focusing on home-made remedies that have no effect in solving your problem.

Woman who bleached her hair to try to get rid of lice.

Does Hair Bleach Kill Lice?

When you find out you have head lice, it’s probably at home after a long day, and you’ve finally gotten the kids to bed. You’re finally able to take some time for yourself, put on your PJs, and brush out your hair—and that’s when you find them—head lice. At Fresh Heads, we know what comes next: a wave of disbelief, followed by panicked rummaging through the medicine cabinet for anything you think might work. As you turn around the box of hair bleach, you’re confronted with a long list of strong-sounding ingredients that you think should surely be able to handle a tiny insect, right? Well Mom, before you waste the next hour with an applicator bottle and plastic mitts, we’ll let you know why your plan is doomed to fail (sorry!), and why your time is much more wisely spent booking the next available appointment at Fresh Heads.

Does Hair Dye Kill Lice?

Since most people only discover that they have lice a few weeks after first getting infested with it, they often go about their usual routine, like dyeing their hair before being treated for lice. But what happens is the dye doesn’t kill the lice—it only colors them. If someone dyes their hair, say, pink, then the lice and nits will also turn pink!

Hair dye isn’t capable of suffocating the lice because they are able to shut their bodies for up to 18 hours, while hair dye is left on for 45 minutes tops. Hair dye is also ineffective when it comes to eliminating nits. Nits are encased in a hard shell for protection, and the chemicals in hair dye can’t penetrate it nor detach the natural glue-like substance sticking the shells to the hair.

Does Bleaching Your Hair Kill Lice?

Just like permanent hair dye, hair bleach contains some strong chemicals—including hydrogen peroxide, ammonium persulfate, and stearyl alcohol. However, despite the ability of these ingredients to pull the color out of the hair shaft, none of them have the ability to effectively kill lice or their eggs. Just like with hair dye, adult lice can outlast the hair bleaching process, and bleach will not penetrate casings of the nits.

At Fresh Heads, we know head lice. We know that hair dye or hair bleach just won’t work, and if you try it, you’ll still end up needing professional lice removal later.

Close up of woman's hands opening a bottle of Coke.

Does Coke Kill Lice?

For anyone who has ever had to handle or is currently dealing with a case of lice, there’s no denying that it’s frustrating. As a problem that’s existed for years, the common case of scalp critters has pained and annoyed humanity for far longer than most have expected it to. Although the technology for properly dealing with lice today is better than ever, many people still try to turn to readily available at-home remedies. A number of improvising people have asked the question, “Can I use a few bottles of Coca-Cola to kill my head lice?

No Secret Lice-Treating Ingredients

Now, while it may sound unbelievable to even say “Coca-Cola” and “lice” in the same sentence, the question has come up more than once, so we’ll break down the answer. Coke’s full ingredient list may not exactly be public knowledge because of how the recipe itself is kept far away from the eyes of its competitors. Nevertheless, there are a few key components that can be easily identified, namely:

  1. Caffeine
  2. Phosphoric acid
  3. Caramel coloring
  4. Citric acid
  5. High-fructose corn syrup

Given the sheer ineffectiveness of trying to remove lice with even the strongest OTC lice shampoo in your local drugstore, Coke is far from anyone’s mind when the topic of finding a cure is brought up. Sure, it sounds like a miracle cure that you wish was tried, tested, and made irrefutable by scientific research, but the reality is that Coca-Cola will never get lice off your head— and the same applies to every other soft drink in the market.

Why Coca-Cola Won’t Work

Generally speaking, any soft drink won’t work as lice are extremely difficult to remove and are impervious to any type of standard shampoo. Considering the fact that nits (or the egg of a head louse) have a strong bind to the scalp that is hard to break, Coca-Cola simply doesn’t have the right components for proper dissolving,

What Works in Removing Lice?

When it comes to lice removal, it’s important to remember that “household cures” with no proper scientific basis won’t perform as well as a tried-and-tested cure that has been developed with research and lab work. At Fresh Heads, our AirAllé® device is FDA-cleared for lice removal. It dehydrates and kills both lice eggs and adult lice in a single treatment.

At our head lice treatment center, you’ll have a team of trained experts to handle your pesky problem for you! If you’re in need of an effective cure, letting our professionals take on your case is guaranteed to work—simply because you’ll get an effective treatment!

Will Lice Treatment Ruin My Hair Color?

Whether you are dealing with it or one of your friends or family members is, you will know that head lice are super annoying. Now, if you were thinking about head lice treatments, you might be wondering whether it will affect your use of hair color. Depending on which treatment you use, it can—and we are here to tell you all about it!

Can I Dye My Hair Even If It Has Lice?

Yes. Even if you are currently battling a lice infestation, you can still dye your hair. You won’t be able to have your hair colored in a salon since it is against health code, but you can dye your hair at home.

Will Dying My Hair Kill the Lice?

No. Although there are rumors out there that hair dye can increase the pH levels on your hair to drive away lice, these aren’t true. Hair dye will simply not kill adult lice, and it definitely won’t kill the lice eggs. Hair color can’t kill any of the eggs since they are stored at or beneath the shaft of the hair and protected in the case.

Will OTC Lice Shampoo Ruin My Hair Color?

Yes. If you apply over-the-counter lice shampoos to your hair after you’ve dyed your hair, it will ruin your hair color. This is due to the fact that there are harsh chemicals in those shampoos that will strip the color out of the hair shaft. So, the money you spent (at either at the salon before you caught lice, or on that box of at-home hair color) will be wasted.

Is There a Lice Treatment that Is Safe for Hair Color?

Yes! Fresh Head Lice Removal’s AirAllé® device is safe for hair color! Our FDA-cleared medical device blows warm air through the applicator comb onto the scalp, dehydrating and killing lice and eggs in one treatment. It has absolutely no effect on hair color—there are no pesticides, toxins, or chemicals that could interact with your hair color.

Can I Dye My Hair After Lice Treatment?

Yes. If you receive professional lice treatment from Fresh Heads, you can schedule your hair salon appointment for the very next day, because when you get there you will be lice free! And since there are no chemicals involved in your lice removal treatment, you are also free to have your hair colored.

Professional Lice Removal in Jacksonville and Orlando, FL, and Savannah, GA

At Fresh Heads, we know that just because you are dealing with head lice doesn’t mean you don’t want to look your best. Avoid the risk of stripping your hair color (or of having an unexpected allergic reaction) from OTC lice shampoos. Go with Fresh Heads instead!

Droplet of Listerine.

Does Listerine Kill Lice?

We all have our family’s list of home remedies. Most of them have to do with relieving cold symptoms. Some of you may have heard of trying to use Listerine or other mouthwashes to kill head lice. But does it work? After all, Listerine kills the bacteria in your mouth that causes bad breath. So, can Listerine kill head lice? The short answer is no. Let’s find out why it doesn’t work (and why you shouldn’t even try it!), and what method does.

Listerine Does Not Kill Adult Lice or Lice Eggs

Listerine’s active ingredient is alcohol, and scientists have conclusively proven that alcohol does not kill lice [link to rubbing alcohol blog]. After performing a study where participants’ heads were soaked in straight alcohol for eight full hours, the scientists found that the adult lice and lice eggs were still alive and well.

Why Listerine Doesn’t Kill Adult Lice

Since the alcohol in Listerine does not kill the lice, by trying to use Listerine to kill lice, you would merely be attempting to drown the lice. And as we all know, drowning lice does not work (or head lice wouldn’t survive after you take a shower). The head lice will easily survive this and go on to reproduce more lice!

Why Listerine Doesn’t Kill Lice Eggs

To understand why Listerine doesn’t kill lice eggs, you must know that lice eggs (nits) are encased in a special waxy coating to protect them. This waxy coating essentially waterproofs the eggs. Applying Listerine or any kind of alcohol-based product to your head won’t break that waterproof seal. The nits will continue to hang on tightly to the hair shaft, with the baby lice still safely inside. The eggs will lie dormant long enough to outlast the alcohol—just waiting to hatch and keep the infestation going.

Hazardous to Children

If the fact that Listerine will not work to kill lice wasn’t enough to keep you from trying, there is also the factor of the danger it poses to your child. The alcohol in Listerine can absorb into the scalp and make its way into your bloodstream. Because a lot of the time it’s children who are being treated for lice, this is certainly not something you want to happen to them.

Droplet of rubbing alcohol.

Does Rubbing Alcohol Kill Lice?

When it comes to treating head lice, many folks want to avoid treatments that contain harsh chemicals and pesticides, especially parents treating their children. Sometimes concerned parents look to home remedies like rubbing alcohol to clear head lice as a way to avoid harsh chemicals. However, does rubbing alcohol kill lice?

Doesn’t Kill Lice or Eggs

There have been a few studies to see how effectively isopropyl alcohol kills head lice. Participants saturated their hair with rubbing alcohol for eight hours (eight hours!). Afterward, they reexamined the participants and found that the adult lice and eggs were still alive and well. Thus, researchers proved without a doubt that rubbing alcohol does not kill lice.

Aside from the fact that rubbing alcohol is not effective against lice or eggs, it’s outright dangerous to try to use it for this purpose. Consider these risks:

Dehydration of the Scalp

Isopropyl alcohol is extremely harmful to your scalp, skin, and hair. It strips your hair of its natural oils and dehydrates your scalp. If you tried to use alcohol to kill lice, your scalp might react. It may develop bumps that could become infected. You could also have an allergic reaction and experience stinging, itching, inflammation, and even hives.

Chemical Burns

Another reason not to try to use alcohol to kill lice is that it puts you at risk of getting chemical burns on your skin. And, if you have any open cuts, scratches, or sensitive spots on your scalp, the alcohol will burn your skin. In addition, it can damage your hair follicles. It will also burn if it gets into your eyes. If you are treating a child, there’s a risk of getting alcohol into their eyes. After all, children have a harder time sitting still than adults.

Alcohol Is Flammable

Any form of alcohol is flammable. Why run the risk of putting a flammable agent in your hair? That only invites more opportunity for injury. Again, children are often in need of head lice treatments, and parents should be reluctant to use any flammable material on their child’s body.

Chemical-Free Lice Treatment

Since rubbing alcohol does not kill lice, trying to use it on your child will just be exposing them to unnecessary discomfort (and danger), and in the end you’ll still have to find another treatment. That’s why when it comes to treating head lice effectively, it’s best to trust the professionals. At Fresh Heads Head Lice Removal, we have the latest tools and technologies to kill both head lice and the eggs living in the nits. We don’t use any harsh chemicals or pesticides that could be harmful to you or your child’s skin. Even better, our gentle but effective treatment lasts just over an hour. Contact us today!

Does shaving these boys' heads get rid of their lice?

Does Shaving Your Head Get Rid of Lice?

Whoa there, Mama—let’s not jump to extremes. We know how stressed you are with the breaking news that your kid has lice, but do you really want to shave their head? Children can feel an attachment to their hair, and the moment you shave it off could make the situation worse. If you think shaving your head can get rid of lice, you’ll be left with shorter hair and no fewer lice than you did before. Haven’t convinced you yet? Let’s take a look at what to consider before making the cut, and we’ll give you some alternative and more effective treatment options.

Before Shaving

Before you jump to the chase of grabbing the razor to chop it all off, consider these points first:

  • Hair Salons Will Not Shave Your Child’s Head. If you think taking your child to the hair salon to get it shaved off is the easiest solution, you might want to put the keys down first. Hair salons will not treat or service those who have an active lice outbreak because it violates their health code.
  • Shaving Your Child’s Head Could Be Traumatizing. When there’s a lice outbreak, emotions are flying everywhere. You’re stressed, your kid is stressed, and you’re trying not to get lice yourself. One way to make it that much worse? Shaving their head! Your child could get upset and feel extremely embarrassed.
  • Shaving Will Not Get Rid of Lice. If you’re still ready to take the plunge to find out if shaving your head gets rid of lice, we’ve got news for you. It is not a solution to treating lice. Sorry to break it to you, but a buzz cut with clippers will definitely not get rid of lice. The reason shaving will not work is because lice live on the base of the hair, and on the scalp.  The nits are laid right at the base of the hair often times against the scalp.  A shaving will not get close enough to make an impact on the lice and nits.

Fast and Safe Lice Treatment

The good news is that you don’t have to go to extremes when there is such a fast, easy, and safe option available—our revolutionary AirAllé device at Fresh Heads. The AirAllé uses warm air to dehydrate both lice and eggs in just 30 minutes. The rest of your 1-hour treatment appointment is spent ensuring every louse and egg has been removed from the head.

Dish of mayonnaise--will it kill lice?

Does Mayonnaise Kill Lice?

After finding out that their child has lice, many parents resort to home remedies to try and kill the lice and prevent an infestation. While we don’t deny that a good home remedy has gotten us out of a jam more than once, lice are the exception. Home remedies can often do more harm than good, delaying effective treatment and allowing lice to multiply, leading to a full-blown infestation. Today, we’re addressing one of the most common home remedies we’re often asked about: mayonnaise. While we generally think of this beloved condiment as being reserved for our favorite deli concoctions, more and more parents have turned to this common household ingredient to target head lice. If you’re interested in learning if you can use mayonnaise to kill lice, keep reading.

Why Do People Try to Use Mayonnaise to Kill Lice?

The school of thought behind mayonnaise as a lice treatment is that the mayonnaise will essentially suffocate the lice. The theory is that applying the mayonnaise to your child’s hair, then applying plastic wrap overnight will prevent the lice from being able to breathe, and the lice will die off.

Does Mayonnaise Kill Lice?

In short, no, mayonnaise does not kill lice. According to the CDC, there is no scientific evidence to support the notion that mayonnaise effectively treats lice. It’s important to realize that lice are considered to be both insects and pests by definition. This means that in order for any type of topical product to kill lice, it has to contain an insecticide. Common household products such as mayonnaise do not fall into this category.

Does Mayonnaise Kill Lice Eggs?

Aside from the debate over if mayonnaise can kill lice, there is a separate debate over if mayonnaise can kill lice eggs. No, it does not. Even if mayonnaise could successfully suffocate adult lice, it would still be unable to kill lice eggs. Lice eggs do not breathe, which means they are incapable of being suffocated. Getting rid of lice eggs (nits) can be the most difficult aspect of lice treatment—even when using traditional lice shampoos.

Danger of Suffocation

As an aside, it’s also important to mention that trying to use mayonnaise to kill lice can be dangerous. There have been reports of children actually suffocating from the plastic bags and plastic wrap used to secure the mayonnaise overnight. Some children have even contracted food poisoning from the mayonnaise.

Pesticides Are for Plants, Mayo Is for Sandwiches

Traditionally there have been three options when it comes to head lice treatment: drugstore DIY lice products; nit-picking, or home remedies recommended by other parents.

There are challenges with all three of these lice treatments. First, many drugstore head lice products use pyrethroids to kill live lice which is a class of pesticides. Head lice in 48 states in the United States, as well as some other countries, have developed resistance to pyrethroids. Since pyrethroids have been linked to behavior problems in children, do you really want to be washing your child’s hair with a pesticide?

“Many parents have come to us after weeks of battling lice with over the counter DIY lice treatments, some have spent hundreds of dollars on treatments that don’t work and have spent countless hours cleaning their house and washing bedding,” says Dwight Ottesen, owner of Fresh Heads Lice Removal.

Home remedies are completely unproven. Common recommendations include smothering a child’s head with mayonnaise or petroleum jelly overnight. Mayonnaise? Petroleum jelly?  These approaches are meant to suffocate live lice. “Natural” treatments recommended, like tea tree oil, can actually prove toxic if over-applied.

These methods, even if they were to be effective with killing live lice, do not kill lice eggs. Killing lice eggs (nits) is the most difficult part of a lice treatment. Nits are extremely hard to see and remove, and if you miss just one, the egg will hatch, and you’ll have a fresh case of head lice on your hands. Countless parents have come in after trying to treat lice at home with these home remedies, but all they’ve gotten is more frustration.

This brings us to combing and nit-picking. This is a long and tedious process. As points out, “It’s best to approach lice as a war on many fronts: You need to use a variety of techniques to kill not only adult lice but also their tiny eggs called nits, which are glued to the hair shaft. The nits can survive treatments that kill the adults and vice versa. These bugs have evolved over a millennium to live in hair, so they’re tricky.”

Fortunately, scientists at the University of Utah have come to the rescue with a revolutionary medical device called the AirAllé that kills lice by applying carefully controlled heated air to the hair and scalp, dehydrating live lice and eggs in a single treatment that takes 60-90 minutes.

AirAllé® Lice Treatment

The AirAllé® has been through the lengthy FDA-clearance process where it was found to kill live lice and 99.2 percent of eggs.

The FDA-cleared medical device, the AirAllé® is operated in clinics by certified technicians who deliver treatments that last 60-90 minutes in most cases, and results are guaranteed when all family members are checked for lice and treated in the case of an active infestation.

Because the AirAllé® device only uses heated air to kill lice and eggs, there are no harmful pesticides involved, and no lengthy nit-picking process is required. This sounds a lot more pleasant than pesticides or sleeping with a head full of mayonnaise.

“It’s amazing to see the relief on a happy mom who is able to leave our clinic lice-free after having tried everything to get rid of lice,” says Dwight Ottesen.

Let’s leave pesticides in farms but keep them out of our hair. Let’s leave mayonnaise on sandwiches, which can be quite delicious. Let’s use science and medicine to treat head lice.
