Stop lice
Lice is easy - professional remove lice

Lice Facts

  • Over-the-Counter Shampoos: Many OTC head lice shampoos may not effectively eliminate lice due to immunity developed by various strains. We recommend non-toxic, all-natural products for safe removal. Our gentle products do not cause scalp irritation.
     

  • Misconceptions about Lice: Lice cannot live on pets. 

 

  • Transmission and Prevention: Lice don't jump, fly, or hop; they crawl. Prevention is key with repellent sprays and styling hair in buns or braids. Lice don't live on objects but need a warm, moist scalp to thrive.
     

  • Demographic and Seasonal Considerations: Lice affect people of all backgrounds and occur year-round. Long hair is more susceptible.

  • Transmission and Treatment: Spread through direct contact, treatment involves thorough removal of lice and nits. Informing others is essential to prevent re-infestation.

 

  • Understanding Lice Life Cycle: Nits hatch after about seven days, with nymphs molting three times before becoming adults. Female lice lay multiple eggs daily, attaching them firmly to the hair shaft.

 

  • Symptoms and Effects: Bites cause itchiness, usually at the nape of the neck and behind the ears. After removal, itching may take a couple of days to subside.

 
Remember, while head lice can be troublesome, they're not dangerous. At lice is easy, we offer stress-free lice removal solutions for the whole family. No need to panic or take extreme measures. We're here to help!

All you need to know about lice...

Characteristics of a head lice infestation

An infestation is typically identified 3 to 6 weeks after it begins. The intensity of symptoms depends largely on the duration and extent of the infestation.

 

  • Persistent Itching

  • Red Rash at the Nape of the Neck

  • Fatigue

  • Scalp Damage

Upon finding a new host, adult lice continue their lifecycle by laying a new generation of nits. The lifecycle from nit to adult louse lasts 30-33 days.

Adult Characteristics

  • Size comparable to an uncooked grain of rice

  • Six-legged parasite

  • Females lay 5-10 nits daily for up to 14 days

  • Feeds on human blood

  • Moves quickly through hair

  • Does not jump, hop, fly, or burrow

A fertilized female uses hair as a bridge to move to new hosts, starting to lay nits immediately.

Nit Characteristics

  • Teardrop shape

  • Sesame seed size

  • Attached to one side of the hair strand

  • Hatches in 7-10 days

  • Translucent or brown

Infestations reach their peak during the nymph stage.

Nymph Characteristics

 

  • Size of a nit at hatching

  • Feeds every 2-4 hours

  • Doubles in size every 2 days after hatching

  • Translucent

Lice secrete a scent from their saliva and urine that embeds in the hair shaft, attracting more lice for up to 30 days. Using repellent products can mask this scent, reducing the likelihood of a new infestation.
