How Do You Get Rid Of Lice?

Getting Rid Of Lice!

Since lice won’t go away on their own, if you want to get rid of lice you must treat as soon as possible. It’s important to know that every 7-10 days is a new generation of lice.  The longer you wait to treat lice the more you will have to remove and the more people around that person are at risk for getting lice as well.

Get Rid of Lice – The Two-Step Process

Defeating lice successfully is a two-step process. First, you must kill all the live lice. By killing all the live lice you are ending any new nits from being laid because you are killing the adult bugs. It is also important to kill the younger lice bugs while in their Nymph stage. These are the baby lice that don’t lay nits yet but by killing them you are stopping them from maturing and laying nits. It takes 7-10 days for a hatched lice to mature to an adult fertilized bug so if you treat with a good safe lice treatment like KaPOW Lice Attack Solution, that will defeat all live lice.

The Second Lice Treatment

After you do the first treatment we recommend doing two follow up treatments six days later and one more treatment 6 days after – just in case.  The first treatment effectively ended any new nits being laid by killing all the live bugs. However, you need to remove any of the remaining nits before they hatch.

The two perfectly timed follow up treatments are designed to eliminate any new lice that hatch while they are still nymphs before they have a chance to reach maturity and start the cycle over again with new nits. A person is only contagious with an adult female fertile louse so when she is treated effectively and dead, along with all the other stages of lice, that person is no longer contagious with lice.

Third Lice Treatment – The Insurance Policy

The third step is really just an insurance policy. We’ve treated many people that cannot be combed out so with these three perfectly timed treatments we’re 100% successful at ending the lice infestation. The good news is nits do not lay dormant so once the life cycle of 7-10 days is up the nits are no longer viable and will not hatch. Combing the nits out is more for cosmetic purposes since nits will not fall out of the hair. They will grow out.

No one wants nits in their hair for many reasons. They’re harmless but just gross. More importantly, we don’t want nits left in the hair to confuse a head check in the future. So it’s important to do a comb-out with a professional grade nit comb to remove the nits but by using a product like the KaPOW Lice Attack Solution, your treatment success in the solution treatment and not relying on removing every single nit.

If you find evidence of lice or nits you must treat. Lice will not go away by them selves. We have a nit ID program so if you find something and your not sure what your looking at you can take a picture of it and text it to our lice hotline 610-324-5661.   Call to schedule an appointment with our lice service or stop in to our new Center for Lice Control Salon located at 68 W.
