Head Lice at the Pool

Head Lice at the Pool

With the summer in full swing, it is important to be aware of how lice can spread at any pool party. Luckily, Fresh Heads Lice Treatment Center provides safe and effective lice removal so that you can enjoy the fun in the sun without worrying about lice. 

Can Chlorine Kill Lice?

Although this is a common misconception, chlorine cannot kill head lice. Research shows that while lice do become immobilized when left in chlorine for long periods of time, they fully recover in less than a minute. This means that even when swimming in chlorinated pool water, the lice will not be killed. On the contrary, the lice actually grip harder to human hair when the person goes underwater and they can hold their breath for over four hours.

How Soon After Lice Treatment Can You Swim?

If you are treating your lice with an over the counter product, it is recommended you wait at least 48 hours before swimming after treatment.Because OTC products have lost their effectiveness at treating head lice (see Super Lice) and are not recommended as an effective treatment, chlorine interferes with many OTC lice treatments and causes them to be even less effective, essentially rendering them to be almost entirely useless. Additionally, these OTC treatments often contain harmful chemicals which can cause a bad chemical reaction when mixed with the chlorine in a pool. 

In order to avoid ineffectiveness and side effects such as burns and irritation to the scalp, come into Fresh Heads Lice Removal Clinic for a 100% safe and effective treatment. At Fresh Heads we are committed to safely removing head lice so your child can return to normal life as quickly as possible. We promise to do that without the use of toxic chemicals. Our AirAlle lice treatment is completely chemical free- using our FDA-cleared medical device we are able to blow heated air through its applicator tip along the scalp and hair shafts at a higher flow (but cooler temperature) than a hair dryer and eliminate all lice. Therefore, you can enjoy swimming in any pool right after the treatment, and no follow-up is necessary.
