Knowing how to get rid of lice fast can be a daunting task. If you go online to your favorite search engine and enter anything related to head lice you will notice that there are a large number of websites offering tips, remedies, treatments and medications that can be used in the treatment of head lice. Knowing how to differentiate the effective lice treatments from those that are simply not effective can be quite a difficult task, especially if you have never dealt with these bugs before. There are some people who blindly believe in head lice home remedies that range from olive oil, Vaseline and mayonnaise and people who also think that the only solution for these pestering parasites comes in the form of harmful prescription lice medication.
Why is prescription lice treatment not recommended for head lice?
Unfortunately, the pharmaceutical industry has led us to believe that the only effective head lice treatment is using an expensive, harmful medicated treatment. Whether or not you need a prescription for these treatments is pretty much irrelevant, due to the fact that both prescription and non-prescription lice treatments have several flaws that make them ineffective. The first thing that we need to consider when it comes to medication-based head lice treatments is that their formula typically contain pesticides or poisons. Some of the most popular treatments that you can find at most pharmacies contain Pyrethrins; organic compounds that have been used as pesticides for a long time. They act by targeting the nervous system of head lice. And while these compounds can be found in nature in chrysanthemum flowers, most treatments nowadays have pyrethrins that are synthetized in a laboratory.
The problem with these pyrethrin-based treatments is that lice and other bugs develop immunities after exposure to them. Their DNA is altered in order to provide an immune response against these lab-synthetized chemical compounds and while these treatments might have been effective 30 or even 15 years ago, today they are simply not efficient in the treatment of head lice. As if this wasn’t enough, pyrethrin based treatments only target the head lice themselves and not the nits. What this means is that even if you do get rid of lice using several, expensive doses of these treatments, you still have to find something to get rid of the nits. As you can imagine, this all translates into days, weeks and even months of missed days of school or even work while you’re waiting for the lice and the nits to die.
What most people don’t know either is that a single louse can survive for up to 30 days on the human scalp and female lice can lay several eggs per day, meaning that if untreated or treated inefficiently, the lice will continue to reproduce exponentially and finding a solution will become increasingly difficult.
What Makes ClearLice Lice Treatment Different?
ClearLice is a lice treatment based on natural ingredients that were designed to attack head lice without negative side effects. For example, one of the main ingredients found in our patented formula is neem oil. Neem oil is an essential oil that has been used for centuries by the people of India to treat head lice effectively due to its antifungal and repelling properties. And while neem oil is an essential component in our formula, this is only one of the many ingredients that can be found in our products that will help you and your family get rid of lice within 24 hours, so that you and your kids can go back to normal activities as soon as possible without exposing yourselves to the harmful side effects of pesticides and poisons.
Are Head Lice Home Remedies Effective?
Unfortunately, one of the most common misconceptions when it comes to head lice is that there are several products at home or in your pantry that you can use to treat head lice. And while the effectiveness of these remedies is questionable at best, we believe there is no reason to experiment with these products, especially when time is of the essence. Head lice are parasites that need to be dealt with right away and wasting your time experimenting with mayonnaise, olive oil and other oils can prove to be an exercise in futility. It is possible these products may smother some adult lice, but they will not have an effect on the nits/lice eggs. It is important that you find a treatment that will eliminate both lice and eggs in one shot. A head lice infestation could result in many missed days of school or work and there is no need to depend on home remedies, especially when there are more effective ad safe alternatives available.
