What Exactly Is Lice Dehydration

What Exactly Is Lice Dehydration?

In the United States, it’s believed that about 6 to 12 million children between 3 and 12 years of age get head lice each year. Head lice infestations are especially common in schools because of head-to-head contact between young students who may not know that they’re spreading them.

For many years, the only way to combat head lice was pesticide-based shampoos available in drugstores and local grocery stores. These lice treatment products have since grown ineffective in combating the super lice we are now seeing.

Since multiple generations have been using these treatments for decades, lice have developed a resistance to them. As a result, these over-the-counter treatments are no longer effective and cannot be recommended.

Fortunately, technological developments have brought about a method and device that can effectively kill lice: warm air.

The AirAllé® Device

AirAllé’s solution to lice problems utilizes something so simple. Directing warm air along the scalp for a certain amount of time kills crawling lice along with their eggs.

The AirAllé® Device was cleared by the FDA and released to the market in 2010. It blows heated air through the applicator tip at a higher flow rate, cooler temperature, and a precise humidity that is impossible to obtain from a standard hair dryer. Thirty minutes of consistent exposure to this warm air is enough to dehydrate and kill the lice and their eggs. This lice treatment method does no harm at all to the child or adult being treated. 

You shouldn’t mistake this device for a modified hairdryer. When you blow hair with a conventional hairdryer, the hair presses up against the scalp. This creates an insulating layer that protects lice from the heated air that you’re trying to expose them to. Hairdryers also produce a comparatively wide range of temperatures. Setting it on high means you risk burning your scalp and setting it too low won’t affect the lice at all.

In contrast to a conventional hairdryer, the AirAllé® Device utilizes a unique, single-use applicator tip with specialized holes at the end of 28 fingerlike tips that directs heated air along the hairline. The applicator lifts up the hair and ensures the flow of a consistent stream of warm air at the exact temperature that will dehydrate and kill lice after exposure. 

Effective Lice Treatment

Now that lice species are resistant to conventional lice treatment shampoos, the AirAllé® Device is the most effective way to eliminate lice. Over 450,000 Signature AirAllé® Treatments have been performed. 

This method is also the safest. Air is completely non-toxic and no pesticides or chemicals are used in these sessions. It’s perfectly safe for children and adults of any age, even those with sensitivity to other hair treatments.

Lice Dehydration Treatment

Lice is an incredibly common problem for millions of children and families all over the United States. Decades of pesticide-shampoo use have led to the emergence of super lice that are resistant to traditional treatments. Thankfully, there’s now an easier, more effective way to get rid of lice for good.
