No Nits or Lice

Came across this article by Deborah Z. Altschuler, president of the National Pediculosis Association, an all-volunteer nonprofit organization. I couldn't agree more! Schools should have a proactive no-nit policy focused on education and routine screening.

Does Mayonnaise kill head lice?

When parents find out their children have head lice, they'll do almost anything to get rid of it. There are many myths out there as to how to kill lice, and one of the popular ones is mayonnaise. The truth is mayonnaise is not deadly, and it will not kill lice. The best way to treat lice is to use non-toxic, pesticide free natural enzymes that lice are not immunity to, and a really fine tooth comb. 

Scientists Determine 99.6% of Lice Resistant to Chemical Treatment

I came across this article today. It's hard to believe that permethrin has been banned in UK and Europe, but we still continue to sell them over the counter here in the US. It also talks about how Permethrin can damage children before they are even born from mother’s exposure raised the cancer risk for infants. http://enewspf.com/latest-news/science/science-a-environmental/50886-scientists-determine-99-6-of-lice-resistant-to-chemical-treatment.html
 

Mayonnaise kill lice?

We had a customer today who came to us with her hair covered in mayonnaise. There are many myths out there as to how to kill lice, and mayonnaise is on top of that list. The truth is mayonnaise is not deadly, and it will not kill lice, and it will most definitely not loosen or break up the nits (eggs). As horrible as it may seem when you find out your child just came home from school with lice, it's not that bad. All you need is a non-toxic, pesticide free enzyme that has been tested, and proven that lice are not immune to, and an extra fine tooth comb. 

How to Keep Lice Away

It is time for back to school, and it's every parents worst nightmare to have their child come home with lice. 
Here are couple simple steps you can follow to make sure to avoid, and get rid of lice. 

1. Look for the obvious signs such as scratching constantly, and/or redness behind the ears, and nape of the neck.
2. Begin by inspecting the hair thoroughly. Remember, the best way to check for lice is to wash the hair first!
