Why is it always best to turn to a lice removal professional?

Whether you’ve picked up lice at work or the kids bring them home from school, no one is happy to discover an infestation. Too many people immediately turn to the internet or well-meaning family and friends, hoping to find a solution that will be easy and effective.

Unfortunately, most natural home remedies and chemical solutions fail to deliver, and leaving even a few lice or nits behind ensures you’ll have to start the entire process over again. If you are considering options for lice treatment, Lice In Sight™ explains why it’s always best to turn to professionals.

Ineffective Chemical Methods

Lice and nits, their eggs, are extremely resistant to at-home removal methods, including chemical solutions. Not only will these treatments fail to resolve the problem. They can leave you feeling itchy and dry as a result of the product's residue.

Common problems with at-home lice treatments include:

Using unnecessary chemicals

Not being 100% successful the first time

Wasting hours of valuable time

Messy home cleanup

Irritating scalp from using products.

Many schools and childcare programs require a note from a professional that certifies lice have been completely removed before kids can return. That means you may require additional treatment after spending time and money on methods that prove ineffective and irritating.

The Problem of At-Home Removal

Removing lice by hand avoids the problems associated with chemical treatment. Lice and nit removal are more difficult than you may imagine. Each louse is reddish-brown or black in color. They are able to move quickly through hair making them hard to find.

Nits are more visible but easily confused with dandruff, scabs, and lint. At the same time, even if you’re able to eliminate lice on one family member, the insects will move freely from person to person and items in the home. Missing just one or two lice or nit will result in cross-contamination and re-contamination, which are almost unavoidable without support from professional lice removal experts.
