Head lice are small little parasites that can make our lives a living hell; after all, the itching associated with these nasty bugs and the social stigma can sometimes be more than enough to break a person down. In fact, when writing these articles, I usually find myself scratching my head constantly, not because I have writer’s block or because I’ve run out of ideas, but rather because I keep convincing myself that I have head lice! But after a few minutes and a breath of fresh air I find myself calm and ready to go back to writing.
The point I’m trying to make is that dealing with a case of head lice can play some tricks on our minds, to the point where we might even consider getting treatment even if we’re not sure whether we have lice or not. If you have recently treated your child or another family member for lice, it is possible that you might have considered getting preventive or active treatment for yourself. You may ask yourself, “if my child has head lice should I treat myself?”
Over-the-Counter Lice Treatments
Most people tend to go for the OTC treatments that are easily available at your local pharmacy or drug store when they discover a head lice infestation. These head lice treatment products are made with chemical ingredients, poisons and pesticides that are no longer effective at getting rid of lice. The reason for this being that the same formula has been used for decades and lice have developed a resistance against these lice treatments/ These treatments will not longer eliminate a lice infestation.
Repeated use of lice killing chemicals and pesticides in OTC treatments can lead to the development of skin problems and conditions such as a dry scalp, chemical burns, allergic reactions and in some cases even infected wounds and sores. This is why we don’t recommend using these chemical ridden OTC preventive or active lice treatments to treat yourself if you think you might be at risk of a head lice infection.
Natural Lice Treatment
ClearLice natural lice treatment and prevention contains no toxins, chemicals, or pesticides. ClearLice single size prevention kit contains everything that you will need to make sure that you don’t get lice when treating your children. It is made with natural ingredients and has a peppermint scented shampoo and leave-in conditioner which contrasts quite noticeably with the chemical odor that other OTC lice treatments contain. The easy to apply repel shampoo and conditioner will help you keep lice away. If it is already too late for you, consider getting our lice treatment kit which includes everything that you need to effectively treat a case of head lice without having to worry about the side effects of chemical-based treatments.
When treating yourself for lice it is also important to consider that other fabric objects in your house like clothing, drapes, furniture, bedding and pillows can be effected by lice. Bugs can live for 48 hours off of the head and eggs can live for up to 10 days off of the head. It is possible for lice to crawl onto a head from one of these items. This is why here at ClearLice, we have developed a household spray and laundry additive that can be used on these items to make sure that lice and nits do not stand a chance.
Finally, it is important to consider that lice preventive methods should not only be used on yourself, even after you help your child or family member get rid of any leftover nits and lice, the possibility of them getting lice again remains constant, especially more so if they are still in school or daycare centers as the contact with other children will be inevitable. This preventive treatment will help all of you stay lice-free and give you the peace of mind that you need to fight your daily battles.
