Head lice is not a fatal disease, but can send parents into a panic. It can affect the social, physical, emotional and financial aspect of families. Families need a safe and effective head lice treatment option. Parents are confused with all the “lousy information” on the internet, longstanding myths about head lice and various treatments available.
Head lice get a powerful hold on your hair while consuming your life, if not treated safely and effectively. Most with head lice are embarrassed, feel guilty for not seeing it sooner, scour the internet trying to find trustworthy information and the best head lice treatment. The treatment options can be hard to decipher: home remedies, over the counter products, prescriptions products, toxic products, all natural products, differing combs, and professional removal services. Then add the advice and opinions from family and friends, some feel sorry, some disgusted and some annoyed they have to have their children checked too. Last comes the price comparison, what is going to be the most cost effective options for getting these little bugs out of my life, away from my family and my house.
As the owner of a lice removal salon, I hear stories of so many battling lice. Most are confused and frustrated, already used an over the counter product and a home remedy like mayonnaise, followed by hours of combing. I love to hear the sigh of relief when I offer a treatment that is safe and effective, along with providing education and validation of frustration. Lice have been around forever and so far do not have a one-time treatment that is 100% effective. There should be no confusion about that fact. My advice to families is to recognize the myths, overcome the stigma of head lice, get a good metal lice comb, comb weekly and learn to identify head lice. Professional lice removal services should be knowledgeable about all treatment options and be willing to clear up any confusion about head lice and treatment options.
