Lice Home Remedy. According to recent reports, head lice are now 100% resistant to chemical treatments in the United States. This means that a new “super strain” of treatment-resistant lice is no longer remedied with traditional drug-store treatment kits. So, a natural lice remedy is the only option to stop the lice life cycle. These reports just increase the already high stress levels for parents who are trying to deal with lice. First, the good news: there are still easy ways to remove head lice. The single most effective home remedy is to use OMG conditioner and the highly recommended OMG Lice Comb.
Lice Home Remedy. To better understand lice and how they thrive, let’s take a look at a typical 30-day lifecycle. During the 30-day life of a female louse, she can lay 10 eggs a day for 10 days. Nits attach themselves to the hair shaft with a sticky substance that effectively keeps the eggs on the hair shaft near the scalp. Eggs, known as nits, are laid on the hair shaft at the perfect temperature to incubate until hatching in about 7 days.
Lice Home Remedy. This is why combing the hair is so critically important—you must remove the nits with a comb in order to stop the lifecycle. Simply treating the live lice with a chemical treatment is not effective. Furthermore the eggs are resistant to the chemicals and will continue to hatch after treatment.
Lice Home Remedy. In the next phase, the baby louse or nymph matures through a series of molts that take place within 10-day period. Once mature, the louse will mate with a male and begin laying her own eggs, continuing the cycle. Since the majority of people who get head lice never have any itching or other symptoms, your child could have lice for several months without knowing it.
Lice Home Remedy. Head lice are specific to humans. No your household pets cannot catch or transmit head lice! They like and have adapted quite well to the unique environment of the human hair and scalp. And, the entire 30-day life cycle—feeding, breeding, egg laying, and maturing—all occurs with a 1/8 of an inch of surface of the human scalp.
Lice Home Remedy. Why would you want to take care of lice at home? Most parents feel deeply ashamed that their children have lice, so it is no wonder they do not want to be seen in public at CVS buying lice shampoo. However it is through no fault of parents that their child has ended up with head lice. Head lice are ubiquitous in elementary school-aged children in United States. Your child will have the chance to contract to head lice many times between the ages of 5-15. Your child is more likely to contract head lice at a family party, playdate or sleepover, than at school.
Lice Home Remedy. Now that we know pesticides do not work for head lice any more, it is imperative that parents have an effective and safe alternative to chemical shampoo products.
