Head Lice Facts

Chapter 6

When it comes to head lice treatment, the options on the store shelf are endless. Which one should you choose? Well, the choice is ultimately yours but, let us provide you with a little information. Most standard over-the-counter treatments contain chemical pesticides called permethrin or pyrethrum. If a child has an allergy to ragweed, these treatments are likely not an option. While the aforementioned products have been around for decades, there are now non-toxic alternatives that are not only effective, but less toxic too! For example, non-toxic Licefreee Spray and non-toxic Licefreee Gel are easy-to-use head lice treatments that kill both lice and nits (head lice eggs) effectively, without the use of chemical pesticides.

In this video segment, we break down the head lice treatment process into 10 easy steps that will help you power through a head lice infestation in your home and get your family lice-free in no time! Other than actually treating a kiddo (or, adult - adults can get lice too!) for lice, what is the next most important step you may ask? Cleaning the home! A thorough cleaning of the home is recommended to help avoid spreading lice to other family members.
