Many people think their experience with head lice is over once they have received treatment. While receiving treatment for head lice is the best way to ensure the problem doesn’t persist, it is wise to take preventative measures to avoid contracting lice again.
What Happens After Lice Treatment?
The AirAlle treatment used at Fresh Heads Lice Removal uses warm air to kill head lice and nits (lice eggs). The treatment is thoroughly applied throughout the scalp, killing all the lice and nits with warm air- this process takes around half an hour. A lice comb will then be used to meticulously comb through the hair to ensure all head lice and nits are removed from the hair and scalp.
The patented AirAlle treatment technology used at Fresh Heads Lice Removal guarantees that clients leave lice-free the same day as their treatment. Wondering what could happen after lice treatment is common. It is vital to make sure your scalp is lice-free before continuing in everyday activities around people. If you follow directions from our highly trained and professional staff after your treatment, you should be good to go.
How to Reduce Your Risk of Catching Lice
There isn’t a way to 100% lice-proof yourself, but there are steps you can take to reduce the chances of catching head lice. Lice is spread by head-to-head contact, so the most effective way of preventing it is to avoid touching heads or hair with others who may be lice hosts. If you have longer hair, it is recommended to wear it pulled up or back to help avoid contact with others. Another method of deterring lice is using scents/oils such as mint, rosemary, and citronella. Lice find these scents unpleasant and are naturally deterred by them.
Check for Lice Weekly
One of the best ways to stay on top of a lice problem after treatment is by regularly performing lice checks. Using a lice comb or fine-toothed comb, separate the hair and comb down a section from the root to the end of the hair. Examine the scalp and comb for any lice or nits. Nits will not immediately fall off of a hair follicle. They are stuck on and require a little more effort to remove than a typical piece of dandruff that easily flakes off the scalp/hair.
