If you Google “how to get rid of lice” you may be as surprised as I was by how may goofy suggestions you find. And the truth is that most of them are ineffective and some may even be risky. Some bloggers suggest pouring motor oil or gasoline on the head. Talk about toxic! While you may be able to kill most live bugs by smothering them with oil or mayonnaise… that method won’t the real culprits…the head lice “eggs” or “nits”. Head lice nits will not be killed by such products. Lice eggs and nits must be handpicked from the hair—nit picking is the only way I know how to get rid of lice once and for all. And I do know that if they are not removed, they will develop into live bugs that will lay hundreds more eggs a day.
I think I know the best answer to the question: how to get rid of lice? Hire a professional lice removal service like Lice Treatment Center LLC (LTC). Its technicians are trained in a physician-designed treatment protocol. Also, they use only the Jolis Cheveux by LTC ™ and Lice Insurance™ lines of all-natural, non-toxic products –plus they bring all tools needed to get rid of lice completely. The LTC all-natural products were formulated by LTC co-Founder and Medical Director, Dr. Elin Cohen, al board certified pediatrician. The products have been field-tested for more than 6 years…and again, are used exclusively by LTC technicians.
LTC technicians have been trained in a physician–designed protocol and really know how to get rid of lice. When the technician arrives at your house, she or he will check everyone to see who has any bugs or nits. Then she or he will begin by treating the affected people with Jolis Cheveux by LTC ™ treatment shampoo, massaging it thoroughly into the scalp and leaving it on for about 20 minutes. Next, the hair will be sectioned into 1/8 inch segments and using a combing solution, the technician will carefully comb through each small section of hair—from front to back and top to bottom– meticulously remove any dead bugs and nits (eggs). The shampoo does not kill the lice nits, so removing them by combing them out is critical. The technician will then repeat the sectioning and combing process. Once the hair is clean of nits and bugs, the technician will apply lice treatment oil to the scalp and tie the hair back (if a girl). The oil will remain on the head until the next morning when the person treated must be thoroughly shampooed with the remaining treatment shampoo, conditioner applied, rinsed and blown dry. The technician will make sure the family knows how to conduct the aftercare for the following 7-10 days. Knowing how to get rid of lice once and for all requires patience and diligence.
So–how to get rid of lice? Treat everyone in the home identified as having lice, then make sure they follow recommended aftercare protocol for a week—that’s how!
