It typically starts with a simple symptom: scratching the head vigorously with both hands. You may also notice your child taking a comb through their hair to relieve some sort of persistent itch. And that’s when you realize—this isn’t dandruff or any other simple condition, but a lice infestation!
Before you go into a panic, keep in mind that lice are not a result of poor hygiene. And as dire as the situation may seem, there are quick and effective ways to get rid of lice by visiting a professional lice treatment clinic. With the proper intervention and a bit of persistence, any infestation of lice that has spread among members of the family will soon be over!
Along with seeking professional treatment, here are some things you can do to ensure that the heads in your home stay lice-free:
1. Focus Your Attention on Heads
Since lice have to stay close in order to live, focus your attention on heads. Perform routine head checks to see if the lice have managed to spread to other members of the household. You can also bring your family to Fresh Heads Lice Removal and our specialists will check your family’s heads for $10 per person. Also, since lice spread primarily through head-to-head contact, you should limit this type of contact to prevent lice from spreading any further.
2. Remove and Clean Affected Fabrics
Eliminating the lice on one’s head usually suffices to keep the infestation from spreading, but if you want to go the extra mile, clean fabrics that any infested people recently came into contact with. Since lice make themselves at home on your head, washing both the recently worn clothes and beddings that may have come into contact with the hair and scalp is a good way to make sure excess lice are eliminated. Remove any used comforters, pillowcases, blankets, and bedsheets. Run all of these through the washer, and then through the dryer at a temperature of at least 130 degrees for 30 minutes.
3. Get Expert Lice Removal
Getting rid of lice on your own can be a struggle. Unfortunately, most over-the-counter treatments are ineffective as they are usually chemical-based and are unable to eliminate super lice, which have evolved to be resistant to most pesticides.
The best way to ensure your scalp is clear of lice is by seeking effective lice treatment options at our clinic. By getting treatment options provided by professionals, you can delouse heads more effectively and prevent lice from reappearing. Our FDA-Cleared AirAllé® device blows heated air through its applicator tip, killing eggs and lice through dehydration. Not only is it highly effective, but it’s all-natural!
