How Long Does It Take To Get Rid of Lice?

Getting Rid of Lice Doesn’t Have to Be Hard!

As a parent, finding lice on your child can be extremely daunting. The truth is, however, that it really only takes five minutes to handle lice and put yourself on a path to being completely lice free. By using the right products and the right process, you can get rid of lice easily.

Many traditional products are no longer effective in lice elimination.  Lice have adapted and can filter out most of the OTC products today, especially the traditional products that contain Permethrin, like Rid and Nix.  This is what frustrates many parents today. They follow the instructions but the lice magically reappear about a week later.

It’s not magic. It’s the nits (baby lice eggs) that weren’t caught by the first lice treatment. If you use one of these products, then you can have problems getting all the lice out, as bugs and eggs often survive the first treatment. This is the reason we developed our own line of products that are 100% effective when used as directly.

You can order them directly by visiting our lice treatment products page or buy them on Amazon. Regardless of the products used, CLC recommends treatments on days 1, 6 and 12 to follow up and get missed eggs as they hatch.

Most people feel that lice invade their house and space, but this simply isn’t true. Lice mostly live on your head, not in your house, because they require your blood to eat and your hair to lay their babies.  For help cleaning read our lice house cleaning guide. When you use a good lice killing product like KaPOW!,  within seconds all live lice are eliminated and the infested host is no longer a risk to share lice with others. It is recommended to then comb out as many nits (eggs) as you can remove.

Most people think that if you have nits (eggs) that you can share them, but it isn’t true until they hatch and grow into adults (about 10 days) that you really have a problem.  Simply by completing 2 perfectly timed easy follow-up solution treatments on day 6 and again on day 12, you are done with this infestation of lice.  Of course, you are always at risk to get lice back from friends or family, so the CLC recommends doing combing head checks to control lice outbreaks 2 times a month until high school.
