TOP 5 WAYS ON HOW TO PREVENT HEAD LICE FOR THE HOLIDAYS

It’s that time of year again where families get together and enjoy each others’ company and share the joy of this festive season. One thing we all wish not to share is  head lice for the holidays. This time of year the number of head lice cases tend to jump due to familIes sharing quality time with each other in close quarters. Here at Lice Care Solutions we put our top 5 ways on how to prevent head lice for the holidays!

  1. Do not share personal items such as hair brushes towels, pillows. Lice can spread by indirect contact with personal items that the affected person used. 
  2. Do not share hats, scarves, coats and  headphones 
  3. Pull your hair back in a ponytail. Lice use your hair as a ladder to get to your scalp.
  4. Apply Lice Care Solutions preventive gel. Lice can not latch on to the hair follicle when the hair is artificially dirty with product.
  5. Get checked before the holidays. Not everyone has symptoms.

That’s it! Have fun this Holiday, and if you find your child does have head lice, don’t sweat it! Just know that Lice Care Solutions, your local head lice removal company, is only a call or text away.

How to Prevent Head Lice This Halloween

Each year around Halloween, lists of safety precautions circulate the news and Internet, urging parents to adhere reflective tape to their children’s treat bags, throw away any treats that have tampered wrappers or present choking hazards, and inspect children’s heads for lice immediately after they return home. While these safety precautions are helpful and have almost certainly saved lives, we want to address one safety tip about which we can confidently and professionally speak: head lice.

Could re-using last year’s Halloween costumes transmit head lice?

Halloween head lice are real, but your kids aren’t going to get them simply from re-using last year’s Halloween costumes. Here’s why: Head lice cannot live for more than a day without feeding on human blood, and nits (or louse eggs) hatch within 7 to 10 days. Thus, even if your child was infested with head lice when they wore the costume a year ago, you can be sure that by now the lice are long gone.

Then how are Halloween head lice transmitted?

Head lice are wingless parasites that can be transmitted from sharing headgear, brushes, clothing, and towels…. or, in the case of Halloween head lice, masks, wigs and hooded costumes. So yes, it is possible for kids to get infested with lice from sharing or trying on other’s costumes.

Quick tips to prevent Halloween head lice:

Because head lice that are latched onto hair and clothing can live for up to 24 hours without feeding on human blood, we recommend each child be given his or her own costume.

Ensure that headgear like masks, hats, hoods, wigs and veils are not passed around or tried on by multiple children.

That’s it! Pretty simple, huh? Have fun this Halloween and be safe. And if you find your child does have head lice, don’t sweat it! Just know that Lice Care Solutions, your local head lice removal company, is only a call or text away. If you live anywhere in the Houston area, we’ll show up at your door and remove those pesky parasites once and for all.

Dangerous Lice Treatment Ingredients to Avoid

   

When your child is suffering from a head lice infestation, it can be very uncomfortable. He might continuously scratch the head and cause it to wound or bleed. As a parent, all you would want is to prevent your beloved kid from discomfort and therefore, you would just want to get something very effective against head lice.

For many years, shampoo against head lice has been used by many parents to treat an infestation problem. However, it is just nowadays that people are looking more carefully as to what is really in these products and wondering if these are really safe for kids. The sad thing is, many

The sad thing is, many report that these products are not anyways 100% effective in dealing with a lice problem. Worse, they contain toxins that are known to be bad for the human body. In fact, the effects might be worse on your kid, as they are normally more sensitive to toxins. There is nothing wrong with buying head lice shampoo, but as much as possible, skip these dangerous ingredients:

Lindane  is a neurotoxin that is normally used as a pesticide. It has been linked to cancer and is capable of causing harm to the nervous, hormonal and reproductive systems. Unfortunately, it can be found in many lice treatment products. Lindane is banned for certain uses but it is still allowed in these types of products. It also tends to linger in the environment and may be passed on through the food chain.

Malathion This is a nerve gas derivative that is also popular in fighting insects. It is considered to be safer than lindane but is still dangerous as it interferes with the nervous system. It triggers asthma and affects the normal balance of hormones in the body. Worse, it is easily absorbed by the skin so when it is used against lice, you can just imagine it getting absorbed by your child’s body easily.

Pyrethroids Composed of permethrin, pyrethrin, and many others, these are synthetic pesticides that are toxic to the immune system and the thyroid. Some have been banned from food production, but they are still found in lice products, specifically sprays used for homes and schools. They have been marketed as safe because they are produced from chrysanthemum flowers, but they are already chemically engineered and are more toxic.

These are just some of the dangerous ingredients in the popular lice shampoos and treatments. In fact, using them might bring worse consequences than the lice infestation itself. There are many studies that have shown that exposure to these chemicals leads to severe medical conditions.

Fortunately, there are alternatives. Natural treatment methods that do not have these chemicals can be used, though their effectiveness is also not guaranteed. To be safe and sure, use a fine comb. It is tedious and you would have to do it a few times, but you can get rid of the problem without requiring any other products.

Though your child will experience some discomfort, a lice infestation does not bring anything more than that. This means you do not have to worry about diseases. You can patiently and peacefully fight them with nothing more than a comb, and you will be rewarded for your hard work.

BACK TO SCHOOL CHECKLIST TO HELP PREVENT HEAD LICE

How To Prevent Head Lice


Back-to-school time generally means buying new clothes, shopping for school supplies and picking out the perfect lunchbox. Unfortunately, with the recent rise of “super lice”—a new mutated breed of head lice that have developed resistance to over the counter and even prescription treatments—it also means it’s time to put your guard up against the school yard’s tiniest bully: head lice.

A common misconception about head lice is that they only affect those who are unclean or unhygienic, but that’s really not the case, says mobile lice removal company Lice Care Solutions. “In actuality, they are equal opportunists and affect everyone, regardless of hair type or how often you bathe.”

Head lice are highly contagious. The Center for Disease Control estimates that between 6 and 12 million children between the ages of 3 and 11. Of the 50 states, 48 of them have reported a mutated breed of “super lice” that is resistant to medical treatment.

To ensure that you and your loved ones stay lice free, here’s a quick checklist for you and your child to follow:

  1. Don’t share items that come into contact with the scalp, like brushes and combs, hair accessories, towels, hats and helmets, headscarves and headphones.
  2. Put long hair up or into a ponytail or braid. Lice cannot jump or fly; instead, they move about by latching onto hairs or threads and crawling from thread to thread. When hair is put up and out of the way, lice are not able to grasp onto it.

  3. Avoid games and activities that include head-to-head contact, since they provide easy opportunities for lice to crawl from one head to another.

  4. Keep personal belongings separate. Shared places like closets, drawers, lockers and common clothes hooks can create additional opportunities for lice to crawl from one clothing item to another.

  5. If you suspect that you or a loved one is infested with head lice, seek treatment immediately. Head lice are highly contagious and if not treated properly will quickly spread to others.

 

For more information on lice prevention or removal, google “Lice Care Solutions” or visit licecaresolutions.com or call (800) 492-LICE (5423).

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
