Lice After-Treatment Care – What You Should Do

You found out just in time that you have lice and got the natural lice treatment you needed. Now all you need to do is make sure that you follow the right tricks to retain the effects of said lice treatment. After all, you can’t simply expect a lice treatment to work the first time around, especially if you have a heavy infestation. In such cases, it’s important to follow some after-care tips so you don’t have a repeat visit to the lice specialist!

Lice Treatments After-Care Tips You Need to Know

Don’t Shampoo Your Hair Again for a Few Days

It’s medication, not a miracle that you’re using to rid your hair of lice. Just because the shampoo is working now, it doesn’t mean you should just revert to your regular shampooing habits in the next few days. Let the treatment do its work and ask a lice specialist to tell you which products you should use alongside.

Continue Combing Your Hair Once Each Day for the Next Few Weeks

Even if you got most of the lice and nits out during treatment, there might still be some left over. Continue to comb your hair at least once each day using a fine-toothed comb. Brush the target points i.e. the base of your neck and the spots behind the ears. You need to get every last nit and louse out, and you can’t do so by just depending on the lice treatments.

Use Hot Water to Wash All Belongings that Were Used

And by that, we mean the clothes, pillowcases, bed sheets, blankets and stuffed animals. Lice can survive for up to 48 hours without human blood. You don’t want a re-infestation because laziness caused you to forget about the pillowcases and pillows.

Do not use insect-killing sprays. Lice are indeed insects but you can’t rely on these sprays to get the job done. Vacuum the furniture yourself thoroughly, or contact a lice removal clinic like Lice Troopers and inquire about a home inspection and cleaning service.

Remind Others about Sharing Hair Accessories and Brushes

Again, you cannot be sure that one or two treatments got rid of lice. It’s important that you keep all hair brushes and accessories away from the other members of the household. You don’t want to be responsible for a lice outbreak.
