When the kids start itching their heads, the parents can’t help but panic. Head lice, although tiny and extremely common among school going children, provoke great fear and a feeling of defeat. Parents’ first concern is to get rid of the problem before it spreads to other members of the household or other students at school. They want to get rid of the bugs, and fast.

But parents are also increasingly savvy about the foods and products they give to their children. They are becoming more educated about the potentially harmful effects of chemicals in the environment. That means, when lice hits home, they’re thinking twice about the traditional over-the-counter pesticide shampoos. Sure, they want to get rid of lice, but not at the expense of their family’s health.

The problem with the OTC methods is that they aren’t as effective as we’ve been made to believe. With each year, lice become more and more resistant to the chemicals that have been lab-manufactured to treat them. And research has shown that the drugstore products aren’t as effective as they claim to be. So not only do they bring with them a laundry list of potential side effects, they’re also minimally effective. Seems like a lose-lose situation.

The other option is a non-chemical treatment. But do natural lice treatments work?

That depends on what kind of natural treatment you use. For some, “natural” will mean employing one of the old wives’ tale methods like smothering the infested hair in mayonnaise or olive oil. Yes, these treatments are natural, and certainly messy, but they don’t get rid of lice.

The other pesticide free treatment option is to contact a professional lice removal service like Lice Troopers. Whether in our child-friendly clinic or in the comfort of your home (yes, we offer house calls!), treatment is safe, pesticide free and quick. How do we do it?
