When you or a loved one has contracted head lice it may seem like the end of the world but there is no need to panic. That being said, it is important you do your research before deciding on a plan for treatment since some options are definitely better than others. Online you may come across many at-home solutions but these are often ineffective and extremely time consuming. Here are some common at home treatments versus going to a professional lice clinic treatment center.
At Home: Getting a Haircut
When you get a haircut, it does not change the fact that you have lice. Lice do not prefer any length of hair; all they need to survive is a human scalp. It may lessen the number of lice on the head currently, but lice can still lay eggs throughout the head. It is not worth the trouble of ruining beautiful hair if it is ineffective in solving the problem.
At Home: Over the Counter Kits
When you are searching for remedies, many drug stores will offer kits for sale. Even though they claim to kill all head lice, they do not kill eggs. Leaving all of the eggs to hatch later onto your scalp. It will create a cycle and reinfest your head. These treatments are filled with harsh chemicals in hopes to poison head lice but using harsh chemicals on the head can also irritate the skin. Why risk your health with harsh chemicals if you can not count on them to remove the problem?

Treating head lice quickly and effectively is so important. Our FDA cleared AirAlle device blows a safe amount of heated air to the scalp. The heat is less than a normal blow dryer but the concentrated air flow to the roots makes all the difference. Most of the lice and eggs lay right on the root near the scalp.
