Spring brings sleepovers, camping and pool parties – which means lots of head-to-head contact and chance of lice! The most effective way to get rid of it is a 1-hr visit to a lice clinic, such as Lice Clinics of America – Thousand Oaks.
We use the AirAllé®, the only FDA-cleared medical device, high-powered dryers, which dehydrates the lice and more importantly, the nits. The head lice removal procedure takes about 30 minutes and holds a 100% satisfaction guarantee; the chances of needing a follow-up treatment is very small, but we will treat you for free if this happens.
Some Lice Myths
- Lice feed off blood, not hair, so tress length and cleanliness don’t affect your chances of contracting these little buggers.
- Lice cannot jump, fly or swim to another head; they can only crawl, which is why head-to-head contact (like during selfies and slumber parties!) increase chances of getting lice.
- 40% of kids with lice don’t experience itching first.
- Lice cannot live for more than 48 hours off a human head, so they are not living in on couches, clothing or bedding.
- Pets do not carry lice
