“I have treated my daughters twice and am still finding lice!”
“We have tried all the shampoos and can’t get rid of lice!”
“I have used a pharmacist-recommended anti-lice shampoo FOUR times and my child still has lice!”
Sound familiar? If so, you’re not alone. These are comments from just a few of our many clients who turn to us for help after months of battling head lice.
The problem of persistent lice causes extreme stress, lost time at school and work, not to mention the hundreds of dollars spent on treatments that don’t work. At Pediatric Hair Solutions, we have treated over 15,000 children and adults without a single treatment failure.
If you’re struggling with persistent lice, HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW about why common treatments often don’t work and details on more effective solutions.
1. There is a common pattern of lice suppression and resurgence when families use lice shampoos and prescription treatments.
What does that mean? Since lice shampoos only kill live bugs and not their eggs, it’s up to parents to comb out every single lice egg. If just one or two are left behind, it will take about 3 weeks for those left behind eggs to hatch, starting a new cycle of lice infestation.
During those weeks, parents think they have the problem under control, not knowing those eggs are developing into live bugs. This is also a common reason lice are spread to other family members and classmates. In other words, the lice aren’t necessarily coming back, they were never completely gone in the first place.
2. Head lice are increasingly becoming resistant to common over-the-counter treatments. A recent study shows 99% of head lice have developed a genetic mutation allowing them to resist to chemical treatments. As chemical treatments become more and more potent, lice have developed a resistance to the toxic chemicals.
The result? Many over-the-counter treatments have an effectiveness rate as low as 20%, no matter how many times you use them.
This is a common reason for persistent lice infestations and can only be battled with non-chemical solutions.
3. Non-toxic treatment solutions are the best way to effectively treat lice. Natural products and treatment modalities, such as the non-toxic treatment solutions used at Pediatric Hair Solutions, kill lice and their eggs. Lice cannot become resistant to natural solutions so this is the best way to battle the bugs.
For a 100% effective and guaranteed solution, we recommend our 3-step process which includes natural pre-treatment solution, a 30-minute treatment with a medical device and post treatment. This process guarantees your child will not be re-infested as it covers the span of the 21 day lifecycle of lice.
