Desperate Times, Desperate Measures: The Trouble We’ve Gone Through Because of Lice

Like a cheetah with its teeth wrapped around a helpless deer’s neck, lice have us caught by the strands of our hair. If you’ve ever struggled with years of lice infestation, you have an understanding of the high levels of stress that comes with the problem. The pesky critters that have nested themselves in your hair are as stubborn as an ox when it comes to leaving. Not only do they want to stay rent-free, they consume all the nutrients from your scalp! Social alienation is just one of the few problems that come with it. Damaged and brittle hair is one of the daunting experiences.

The Nightmare that Follows…

Once you discover a creepy critter crawling between the thin strands of your hair, you do all you can to get rid of it. The problem that arises is that one bug means there’s probably a hundred more, waiting to create an entire army of miniature vampires. And while they’re not allergic to the sun, they’re good at hiding inside the inner layers of your hair. After the discovery, we’ve all had to go through the walk of shame at the department store to look for anti-lice products. Hoping nobody we’re acquainted with shows up to have a nice chit-chat with us at the counter, we use our hoodies to cover our head and part of our face. It’s embarrassing enough to hand over the products to the pharmacy counter; we have to wait in a queue too.

The Effects of OTC Products and Homemade Remedies

Desperation has a funny way of laughing at us in the face. Products labeled ‘anti-lice’ turn out to be anti-hair. Not only do they ruin your hair and make them brittle, you end up looking like Uncle Fester from the Addams Family. Losing hair can result in low self-esteem and wash the years of hard work we’ve done to maintain our manes, down the drain. But as if that’s not bad enough, every homemade remedy available on the internet becomes food for these pesky critters. It makes our hair greasy and most of the ingredients are difficult to wash out, stripping away the natural oil in our hair. The result is the same—brittle and dry hair. Lice: 1; Humans: 0
