Lice Lifters

Well, it’s that time of year again; back to school = head lice season.  The best thing you can do for your family is to be prepared. Perform weekly head checks on your children weekly with a good metal comb.

The facts of head lice:

  1. Head lice actually prefer clean heads.  Although, they’ll take anything they can get, in a pinch.
  2. No one can really pinpoint when and where a lice problem starts, the “Blame Game” is never fun and can cause hurt feelings.
  3. People with color treated hair can still get head lice, grey, brunet, blonde or carrot-tops, are all equal targets.
  4. Nits(lice eggs) are harmless once removed from the head (they cannot hatch).
  5. Once removed from the head, live Lice (bugs)die within 48 hours.
  6. Lice have become resistant to the Over-The-Counter pesticide treatments.
  7. Kids are happy to see each other and show that in various ways like hugging (I know, weird) which suits the lice just fine since they crawl quickly. Flying and jumping aren’t their strong suits.
  8. A mature fertilized louse (10 days old) can lay up 3-5 eggs a day twice daily, which will hatch in a week.  Times that by 20+ kids and dozens of hugs and hat mix ups and well, let’s just say the lice are having a party.
  9. The same mysterious diagnosis that takes place when you read about a rare disease and suddenly think you have it, also takes place when someone just mentions the word lice.  Suddenly your head will start itching and you’ll be sure you have them.  Your head is itching now, isn’t it?

Camp time is one of the worst times of the year for head lice. Head lice cases have hit epidemic proportions as the over the counter products have become less and less effective. Campers are in close quarters and love to take pictures. Have you ever seen your child(ren) in a photo where their head is touching another child’s head? Head to head, or hair to hair, contact is the number one way to contract head lice. Another good way to contract head lice is to share helmets. We often tell our clients to buy their child(ren) their own helmets to bring to camp.

Lice Lifters® will check your head, kill and remove nits and live lice, and send you home with a follow-up treatment plan. They are also a retail store that sells their own The Nit Nanny® Product Line.

Lice Lifters® uses the revolutionary, FDA- cleared LouseBuster™ device for the treatment of lice and nits. The LouseBuster™ device provides a treatment that is non-chemical, effective and fast.  It kills the nits using heat, and therefore, it effectively kills head lice and lice eggs without any dangerous or harsh chemicals.  In addition, the treatment can be done in half the time of a traditional comb out.

Happy camping!
