diy remedies nits. do you want to treat lice at home? Do you want to treat lice without the use of toxic chemicals and pesticides? Recently a study by Kyong Yoon, Ph.D of Southern Illinois University found that head lice in the U.S. have developed resistance to pesticides found in lice shampoo. “What we found was that 104 out of the 109 lice populations we tested had high levels of gene mutations, which have been linked to resistance to pyrethroids.” And it turns out that not only are head lice resistant to pesticides, but the nits themselves are bulletproof. Lice shampoos do not penetrate the outer shell of the lice eggs. The shell has also become resistant to pesticides. So if you wash your child’s hair with lice shampoo and rinse out the shampoo thinking your are all done, the nits will simply resume hatching and start up the lice colony all over again. Parents will say to us “My child keeps getting lice again and again.” In fact your child never got rid of lice in the first place.
