Why Are Head Lice So Hard to Remove?
It’s not that getting rid of lice is impossible, the entire process can just be very, very tedious. Remember, whether you visit a professional salon or are doing it at home, your working with very tiny parasites. Be prepared to have a maginifying glass out because the nits and louse eggs can be difficult to spot.
The only way to successfully rid someone’s scalp of lice is to make sure every last louse or nit is completely gone. There are cases which are quite common where people use a home based remedy thinking they got rid of the infestation when it came back stronger than ever weeks later.
At The Lice Expert of Westchester, we utilize industry standard backlit, maginified eye wear. This is for use in identifying the extent of the infestation on your child’s head. Once we’ve applied our “lice logic” shampoo (this kills 99% of all lice), our expert will use a nit comb with fine tooth bristles. This is needed so we can remove each and every egg or louse (they attach themselves to individual hair strands).
So as you can see, removing them is a timely, step by step, delicate process. However, when the time is put in we’re successful. If you’d like to arrange an appointment or speak with an expert, call Dale Longworth with The Lice Expert of Westchester at 914.424.1367.
