One question I frequently hear, is, Why didn’t the chemical I used work?
The word “lice” often results in the purchase of a box of Rid. Unfortunately chemicals often fail to eliminate the problem. There are several reasons why chemicals & home remedies fail.
Chemicals & lice shampoos are designed to treat adult lice bugs. They aren’t effective against lice eggs or baby lice. This is because chemicals are designed to attack the bugs’ nervous system. Babies & eggs don’t have a nervous system, so they remain unharmed. About 2 weeks after treatment, the babies mature & the eggs hatch, beginning the cycle all over again!
Over the years, lice have become resistant to chemical treatments. Recent studies have proven that “Super Lice” are now present in at least 25 states, including California. This new strain of lice is completely resistant to chemicals.
Most home remedies are intended to suffocate lice bugs. Unfortunately, you can’t suffocate an egg. If you place a chicken egg in dye, it will color the shell, but not the yolk inside. The same thing applies to home remedies & chemicals, they don’t kill the bug living inside the egg. Eventually the eggs hatch & the cycle begins again.
The best way to permanently eliminate head lice is to comb out as much as you can with a nit comb, & then remove every remaining bug & nit by hand, one strand of hair at a time.
