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, lice are easily handled.

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.  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. 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.  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 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.
