HOW TO TREAT YOUR HOME AND FURNITURE FOR HEAD LICE

Treat Your Home and Furniture for Head Lice

Getting lice can be inconvenient, frustrating and even a bit confusing. Will the lice go away by themselves? How quickly do they spread? Should you use an organic solution or a more toxic one? Is in-home lice removal more or less effective than going to a salon for lice-removal treatment?

While we can’t answer all of your questions in one blog post, today we want to share why we recommend in-home lice removal treatment over in-salon lice removal treatment.

1) In-home treatment allows you to start delousing your house immediately

When treated in home, you and your family can get a head start on isolating infested items, vacuuming furniture, and washing sheets and clothing that may be infested with lice. With in-home treatment, you have a professional on-site to answer your questions.  

2) In-home treatment is easier to coordinate

Let’s face it: it can be a struggle to round up multiple children at once. Then there’s the challenge of locating a place you’ve never before driven to. With in-home treatment, one child can be receiving treatment while the other is getting home from school. What’s more, the technician comes to you!

3) In-home treatment is more private

While it’s very common to catch lice, the stigma around it can make the whole situation feel icky and a bit embarrassing. Save yourself from the “walk of shame” with comfortable, in-home treatment.

4) In-home treatment can be cheaper than going to a lice removal clinic

Because many in-home lice removal companies charge by the hour instead of by the head, you can save money by investing in a reputable in-home lice removal experience

HOW TO PREVENT HEAD LICE

How To Prevent Head Lice

Is it possible to prevent a head lice infestation?

When it comes to head lice, these pesky little critters are equal-opportunity nuisances. It really doesn’t matter whether you live in a mansion or a humble abode; if the circumstances are right, they’ll gleefully latch onto your scalp and settle in to feast.  

Not so appetizing, right?

The hard truth is that head lice infestations are incredibly common and no one is 100% immune, regardless of gender, hair color, hair texture, cleanliness or socio-economic status.

Okay, now that we got that out of the way, here’s the good news: When you take the right precautions, it IS possible to drastically reduce the risk of catching head lice. Read on to discover how.

THREE TIPS ON HOW TO PREVENT HEADLICE

1) Avoid sharing items that come into contact with your scalp: Since head lice are wingless parasites transmitted by latching on and crawling from hair to hair (or fabric to fabric), we recommend that you avoid sharing headgear, brushes, clothing and towels to prevent a head lice infestation.

2) Keep long hair pulled up: To make it more difficult for lice to latch on, make sure that long hair is pulled out of the way in a ponytail, braid or bun. To ensure that stray hairs stay tucked away, you may want to use a little hair spray as well.

3) Advocate for regular lice screenings at your child’s school or daycare: If your child’s school or daycare doesn’t already screen children regularly, talk to the administration about implementing a schedule for regular lice checks. Head lice are a common affliction, but by catching and removing head lice infestations early, the risk of them spreading can be mitigated.

WET CHECKS VS. DRY CHECKS FOR HEAD LICE

Lice Treatment Wet Check Vs. Dry Check

If you or a loved one has suffered from head lice, you probably know the experience can be itchy, embarrassing and downright confusing. Where should you go for reliable information, and what the heck is the difference between a wet check and a dry check?
 
Recently, a client of ours reached out with just that question. Since we pride ourselves on teaching “all things lice,” we thought you might benefit from the information as well. Here’s what she wrote (email published with the client’s permission):
 
 
“Hello,
My child came home from school a couple hours ago with head lice. I’ve been doing a ton of research and am pretty sure I’m going to hire you guys, but I wanted to know if you do wet checks or dry checks. I’ve read wet checks might be better…
 
Thanks for your help!
Sally R.”
 

WET CHECKS VS. DRY CHECKS

To answer Sally’s question, all of our Lice Care Solutions technicians perform wet checks, which means we lubricate the client’s hair with our all-natural solution and perform a thorough comb through using a serrated lice-removal comb. Unlike dry checks (also known as the visual inspection method), wet checks demobilize any lice that were in our client’s hair, and any nits that may have been there become loose immediately. We then physically remove all visible lice and nits from our client’s hair.
 
While wet checks are more time consuming than dry checks, studies have proven wet checks to be much more effective and, therefore, an optimal detection method. That said, you’ll probably still find the school nurse using dry checks, since the visual inspection method is much faster.  
 
 
*If you have a lice-related question that you’d like for us to answer, email us at info@licecaresolutions.com. We’ll get back to you as soon as we can, and we might even cover the topic in our next blog!
