Throwing a Party? Make Sure Lice Don’t Sneak In!

party poppers

There’s nothing like spending the weekend with the people you love. Unwinding from the stress of a busy weekend that had been filled with stressful clients, an uncompromising boss, and gossiping coworkers; there’s like a weekend party to relax.

You’re inviting all your favorite people for a barbeque night, and you’ve been planning the weekend for the past two weeks.

Nothing can go wrong. Nothing should go wrong. Right? Wrong.

No matter how much we plan, we can’t stop Murphy’s Law from kicking in. This is especially true when it comes to head lice.

Head lice have a funny way of sneaking into our lives. Before you know it, they make their way into the strands of your hair, building a nest, without bothering to ask your permission.

They’re like the annoying neighbors that decide to walk in without knocking, but the only difference is that head lice don’t want to leave.

Don’t Let Uninvited Guests Bug You

Don’t let uninvited guests bug you in your own home. While it may be difficult dealing with head lice, especially if you’re struggling with a re-infestation, it doesn’t have to be difficult. Head lice affect 6 to 12 million people in the U.S. every year so don’t fret about having to deal with the problem alone.

With the right treatment, it’s possible to overcome the hurdles lice come equipped with. One of the first steps to take is to get evaluated and screened to see whether you have lice or not.

A professional lice removal service can help you figure this out by testing and screening to see if your hair has been infested.

Sometimes symptoms of head lice are not apparent and most people dismiss the itching as a skin problem or dandruff.

This is why it’s important to get regularly screened for head lice.

At Lice Busters USA, we offer natural solutions and treatments to the residents of Kendall. You can come visit us for a screening to see if you have head lice. Our experts will use safe and effective methods to get rid of every critter and nit from the strands of your hair.

Don’t become a victim of head lice in your own home! Call us at 800-405-8201 to book an appointment today.

You can also opt for our in-home treatments if you don’t want to visit our treatment center. Call us at 800-405-8201 to book an appointment today.

The Truth about Head Lice Chemicals & Pesticides

At Lice Busters USA, we offer parents, teachers and other caregivers an all-natural treatment option for lice removal. Yet, the first door that many parents knock after a head lice scare is their local drug store’s – selecting specially formulated lice removal shampoos.

Do you know what the active ingredient is in OTC lice removal solutions and shampoos? Toxic chemicals and pesticides which are dangerous for continued usage!

Stop and Think – The Real Picture of Head Lice Chemicals and Pesticides

Just how dangerous are these chemicals? Turns out, parents would stop using over the counter lice removal shampoos if they knew what is in the bottle.

In fact, a lot of research has been conducted in regards to effectiveness of lice removal shampoos over the dangers of continued application.

First Line of Treatment – OTC Shampoos Rid or Nix

Typically, the first-line treatment for lice removal is any OTC shampoo. The most popular ones are Rid or Nix… What is so dangerous about a bottle of commercial packaged and approved lice removal shampoo?

Both these products contain pyrethrins, a specific class of toxic compounds. Chemicals in this class are mostly natural but can also be synthesized. What do pyrethrins do?

These chemicals interfere with a louse’s nervous system before killing. Rid and Nix can be found in most pharmacies and also cost about the same however should parents use this treatment?

Second Line of Treatment – Lindane Lice Shampoo

This chemical based lice removal treatment is regarded by professionals in the lice industry as an extremely dangerous treatment.

Additionally, use of Lindane is heavily regulated (even banned) in 52 countries! Desperate parents often pick this treatment after all else has failed but does it really work?

Lindane features a neurotoxin that is absorbed through the skin, posing several serious risks to human health. The chemical negatively affects the:

  • Nervous system
  • Liver
  • Kidneys

What are the side-effects of Lindane? Continued usage of this chemical based treatment poses risk for dryness, rash, a burning sensation, and itching. There are some serious side-effects as well including seizures and even death!

Fun Fact – The company that manufacturers Lindane Shampoo was issued a letter by the FDA, requesting a correction of misleading information on their official websites.

The producers of Lindane and other such chemical based shampoos fail to highlight the real dangers of using these solutions and products for lice removal! In many cases, effectiveness of these shampoos has been over-hyped as well!

So, what have we learnt so far? Continued usage of OTC chemical based lice removal products will harm your child. You will have to use this treatment method more than once, increasing exposure of the active chemicals.

Lice removal should always be conducted through all-natural means. Manual lice and nit combing is the way to go especially when treating younger children! Visit Miami based Lice Busters USA and avail a 14 day guarantee.

An Estimate of Lice Removal Service Costs – How Much Should You Pay

Time and money—two of the most precious resources of the 21st century. Besides running their homes, people also have an increasingly busy professional life. It’s tough to chase your dreams between work and family time—let alone worry about hypothetical hair scenarios!

Bad things happen to good people, though—and yes, that includes lice infestations too!

Fortunately for busy parents and young adults (who cannot imagine how they could have gotten head lice), a solution exists in the form of professional lice removal services! Lice Busters USA is one such lice treatment center that serves the good people of Miami, helping them get rid of lice the natural way.

Is this the first time you’ll be using this service? Don’t know how much to shell out for a professional lice removal session? Here’s a basic rundown:

Basic Pricing for a Professional Lice Removal Service – What to Expect

You get what you pay for. This is true for a lot of service and products, especially for services that deal directly with the customer. Bargain pricing isn’t sustainable and won’t work for a number of reasons.

This usually produces decline in the quality of a service. In other words, a lower priced service may compromise on important parts of the treatment, such as quality of products, cleanliness and professionalism.

Sure, you can get a low quality plastic lice comb and some branded lice removal chemicals. But one application won’t be enough! You’ll have to douse your child’s head in chemical-laden lice removal solutions more than once—and in the end, no one will be happy.

You can also head towards a cheaper option: unknown lice removal services in a suspicious location that charge only $50 or $60 per hour. Yikes!

The Choice is Yours – Make the Rightly Priced One

The fair market price for professional lice removal services that are really good are normally somewhere between $75 and $90 per hour. Paying less than that without discounted prices or membership? You may receive low quality service for your money!

Isn’t it better to just dump the professionals and conduct a DIY lice removal job? Well… aside from the effort and time used, here’s the breakdown of what exactly a DIY lice removal will cost:

  • RID Kit (used 2 times) – $49.98
  • NIX Kit (used 2 times) – $44.98
  • Other ‘guaranteed products’ – $100
  • Replace personal products – $100
  • Cost of missed days (work or school) – $500 for 2-3 days
  • Home remedies – $25

Grand Total = $816.96

Does this menace go away after all this trouble and expense? Nope, it doesn’t! In fact, lice are contagious and highly likely to spread to other people.

Take the safest and surest route when it comes to lice removal. Visit Lice Busters USA’s treatment center in Miami today!

Why Mayonnaise Lice Treatment Does NOT Work and NEITHER It’s a Good Idea

But there are many parents who have used it.

And, that resource available online, also agrees with the efficacy of mayonnaise lice treatment.

So, why do we think it does not work and neither it is a good idea to cover your head in mayonnaise?

To explain that, let’s look at the idea behind the “claim” that mayonnaise can help you get rid of lice.

Let’s Suffocate Lice!

The treatment method works—apparently—by suffocating the lice found on one’s scalp. Mayonnaise get into a louse’s breathing system and chokes it, resulting in its death.

Fair enough, for theoretically it makes sense.

But the practical evidence does not seem to suggest so.

Evidence from Established Authorities

Journal of Pediatric Nursing states:

“None of the home remedy products we surveyed was an effective means of louse control.”

They tested mayonnaise, petroleum jelly and any other household products — otherwise claimed to be effective lice treatments.

Further, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention also states the same:

“The CDC does not have clear scientific evidence to determine if suffocation of head lice with mayonnaise, olive oil, margarine, butter, or similar substances is an effective form of treatment.”

And, even if for an instance, we decide to go against what CDC and Journal of Pediatric Nursing have to say, what about those eggs (nits)—how can you suffocate eggs to death?

And without killing those eggs you can never eliminate lice infestation.

Clearly,

Mayonnaise lice treatment does not work!

Some of our readers might find our stance a little bit stern – we humbly agree. But there is a reason for that, which we would like to share with you all.

A Toddler Dies

Massachusetts toddler dies during head lice treatment

It was the news, run by CBSN on February 5, 2015.

Parents covered their 18-month old child’s scalp in mayonnaise and placed a shopping bag over her head. They left the toddler sleeping peacefully. While unattended, the bag slid down on her face and suffocated her to death.

Yes, the mayonnaise was not at fault but the protocols entailing the treatment method were. There were enough elements involved in the treatment that increased the probability of such an accident.

Surely,

Mayonnaise lice treatment is not a good idea!

This piece was not intended to make you feel worried; it was just to educate you that when it comes to exercising a step that concerns the subject of health, domestic tips and home remedies are better left avoided.

Lice Buster – Combining Tradition with Modernity

To date, the most effective and safest head lice treatment remains nitpicking. And here at Lice Busters USA, we combine this traditional practice with modern elements, providing you and your family a complete head lice treatment solution.

Our professionals are certified, experienced and trained to provide you with the best lice treatment service. Call at 800 405 8201 to schedule an appointment.

Stay safe, stay healthy and stay lice free!

Is Preventing a Head Lice Infestation Possible?

There are times we wish we had the ability to see the future and prevent situations from occurring. If that were possible, we’d be able to get out of unforeseen situations—like a lice infestation.

Although head lice are a common problem in the U.S. (An average of 6–12 million people contract lice every year), it is still an embarrassing and awkward situation to be in. This is mainly because there is a common misconception that victims of head lice only contract the parasites because they lack personal hygiene.

In reality, lice have little to do with personal hygiene. In fact, if anything, lice are able to move more freely in clean hair.

The Use of Homemade Remedies and OTC Products

When lice victims first find out they have lice, they either opt for shaving their head or look up treatments online. While homemade remedies are less dangerous than OTC products, they can also damage your hair.

In addition, these remedies are ineffective. Some of them require using ingredients that can be found inside homes such as certain spices, vinegar, baking powder, and even mayonnaise!

But the truth is, these ingredients if you used directly on the scalp or hair can make your hair frizzy or slightly damaged. This is especially true when you’re using spices and mayonnaise. While mayonnaise has protein, it can be hard to wash out of your day, taking up to two days at times. The frequent washes can lead to dry and brittle hair.

Baking powder also has drying effects and can lead to an itchy, irritated scalp.

OTC products on the other hand are harmful because they contain various toxic chemicals. Some of these include malathion and lindane. These chemicals are known to be carcinogenic, lindane being classified as the most dangerous one.

Is Lice Infestation Preventable?

Most people would say that it’s not because you never know when lice attack. They are silent creatures that let their bite do the talking. But the truth is, lice infestation is preventable. With the right measurements, you can avoid contracting lice.

One of the first steps to take is to get a head lice screening done. A lice removal service will be able to detect head lice, if you have any. After this, the second and last step to take is to opt for home inspection services. You want to make sure your house is clean and lice-free.

We are a lice removal service in Miami that offers both home inspection services and free head lice screening. In addition, our experts also offer advice on how to prevent re-infestation.

It’s also important to go for head lice screening every 2 months. Call 800-405-8201 or visit our lice treatment center if you are struggling with head lice!

Lice Facts – You Need to Get With the Lice Prevention Movement

One thing every lice victim knows is how stubborn lice are! They refuse to leave once they’ve nested our hair. They can get us into awkward and embarrassing situations, and don’t let us sleep at night.

But you know how they say you have to get to know your enemy to defeat them? It’s the same with lice. The only way to beat them is learn more about them. And the more you know, the easier it becomes to get rid of them.

Here are a few facts you need to be aware of when dealing with an infestation:

Lice Don’t Like Dirty Hair

Head lice don’t like dirty hair. In fact, they don’t like clean hair either! It may be shocking, but it’s true. Lice don’t have a preference! They only care about sucking blood from their victims’ scalps. They get all the nutrients they need from our blood.

They Breed Quickly

24 hours after mating, a female louse lays 10 eggs. One female louse can lay up to maximum 10 eggs that hatch within a week. After the nits hatch, the baby lice grow up within 10 days and start laying their own eggs.

This means that within a month, hundreds of lice are roaming freely through your hair, without a care in the world. The worst part is, they are good at camouflaging so often go unnoticed, or are mistaken as eczema or dandruff.

Anti-Lice Products are Ineffective

Over-the-counter lice products do little to help. Not only are they ineffective, various OTC products contain harsh chemicals that can be damaging. One of these chemicals is lindane and malathion. Lindane comes with a warning from the FDA, stating that the chemical can cause disability, seizures, and in worst case scenarios, death.

Malathion is an insecticide that is used for getting rid of mosquitoes. It is known to be harmful, interfering with the nervous system. Side effects include dizziness, confusion, respiratory problems and in worst case scenarios, death.

Lice Can be Removed Naturally

Remember where there’s a will, there’s a way! The good news is, lice can be removed naturally! Confused? Let us explain.

You don’t have to go through the trouble of dealing with an infestation by using harsh chemicals. Lice clinics help victims of head lice get rid of the problem naturally. By using products that are free of chemicals, they offer safe alternatives.

Lice Busters USA is a lice clinic based in Kendall, Florida. They use special combs, and chemical-free products for their lice removal treatments. Their experts are certified, experienced individuals who are trained in the art of lice removal.

They also offer in-home services, as well as free head lice screening and home inspections. Visit their clinic in Kendall or call 800-405-8201 for further information.

Trained Certified Head Lice Removal Experts – Count On Us!

Sometimes when you’re dealing with lice infestation, you need a shoulder to cry on. But most people don’t lend their shoulder to lice victims, fearing an infestation themselves.

Lice infestations often come equipped with their own form of drama—playground bullying, rumors, gossips—you name it!

“Cassie has head lice! Stay away from her because she doesn’t wash her hair!” or “I heard Jake bathes once a month, that’s why he has head lice!” are rumors that aren’t unheard when it comes to bullying victims.

The truth is, lice have little to do with hygiene, and more to do with your blood. In fact, clean hair makes it easier for lice to move around (Cue that one episode of ‘As Told by Ginger’!)

But desperate victims resort to taking desperate measurements to get rid of the problem. Sometimes victims are forced to shave off their hair and most of the time, they resort to using OTC products! These products are known to contain ‘lindane’, a chemical that is used to treat scabies and lice.

Unfortunately, lindane is the cause of disabilities and deaths, according to a report by the FDA.

However, most head lice victims are unaware of the harmful chemicals that are used in anti-lice products! Some of these come without a warning or a label! Not only do they cause permanent hair loss, they also cause disabilities!

We’re Here When You Need Us!

Before you decide to shave off your hair, remember that treating lice infestations doesn’t have to be a catch 22 situation!

At Lice Busters USA, we use natural products to get the job done. You can count on us to remove lice using safe, natural treatments! Our trained and certified specialists will cater to your every need. All you have to do is visit us, get a free head lice screening and leave the rest to us!

Our shampoos don’t contain lindane or any other harmful chemical that will damage your scalp and lead to hair loss.

Secondly, we also offer in-home lice treatments to those who are busy individuals. This means that you don’t have to come visit us, we will send our specialists to you. In addition, we also offer home inspection services. Our experts will inspect every corner of your home to see if there are any creepy, crawly parasites lurking in the corner. You can visit our Kendall treatment center or call us at 800-405-8201 for questions/queries and booking information.
