When it comes to head lice treatment, the options on the store shelf are endless. Which one should you choose? Well, the choice is yours but, let us provide you with a little information.
Most standard over-the-counter treatments contain chemical pesticides called permethrin or pyrethrum. If a child has an allergy to ragweed, these treatments are likely not an option. These products have been around for decades, but now there are non-toxic alternatives that are effective, and less toxic too! For example, Licefreee Spray and Licefreee Gel are effective, easy-to-use lice treatments that kill both lice and nits without using chemical pesticides.
In this video segment, we break down the head lice treatment process into 10 easy steps. These steps will help you through a head lice infestation in your home and get your family lice-free in no time! Other than treating a kiddo (or, adult – adults can get lice too!) for lice, what is the next most important step you may ask? Cleaning the home! A thorough cleaning of the home is recommended to help avoid spreading lice to other family members.
