Struggling with an Itchy Scalp? It’s not Eczema…

If you’re someone who struggles with eczema throughout the year, you’re not alone. According to the National Eczema Association, 31.6 million Americans struggle with the condition. The worst part is, the problem often times attacks us at the most random time. You never know when your condition might flare up. It affects the hands, feet, arms and even the scalp! But when your head is constantly itchy, the problem may not be because of eczema. There’s another condition that ails us—something that we rarely think about, but can happen to anyone. A condition where sesame seed-sized little critters reign our scalp. Yes, you guessed it…Lice! It may be hard to believe but often times head lice are mistaken for skin conditions. This is because we don’t pay attention to what’s affecting our scalp, thinking that it’s dry skin or something similar. Nits can be confused as dandruff because they are small and white, resembling flakes.

So…What’s the Solution?

When we think of solutions, we think of looking up the web for remedies. We often find remedies listed as ‘natural, safe and affordable.’ But this is far from the truth. Remedies that use “natural” products are laden with chemicals or preservatives that can ruin our hair for good. A good example of this is the mayonnaise and tea tree oil application. Mayonnaise is difficult to wash out of your hair, making the strands of your hair greasy. This allows the lice and nits to latch onto your hairs, making it difficult to pick them out. Tea tree oil is harsh when used directly. Furthermore, it has a drying effect. After using the solution, your hair will become dry, brittle and frizzy. The head lice on the other hand? They will not go anywhere. Anti-lice products and department store combs are also the same. Full of chemicals, these products can lead to scarring or hair loss. The combs have harsh plastic or metal teeth that scrape the skin from the scalp and pull the hairs, damaging the root. Professional head lice removal services are the best option for a complete removal. Lice clinics have experienced and certified specialists to combat even the most stubborn lice infestations. Using special combs made from high quality materials that scrape not only the adult bugs but nits as well, lice clinics guarantee a safe, complete removal.
