Time was, when you found nits in your child’s hair you had to schlep them down to the doctor’s office for a prescription shampoo and other lengthy, expensive treatment. This always seemed to occur right when you wanted to spend a weekend up in the mountains or go visit Grandma and Grandpa – but suddenly, instead, you had your hands full with tearful, frightened children and time-consuming chores to insure that there would be no encore of Pediculus humanus capitis.
This was about a much fun as going to the Porcupine Petting Farm.
But the latest hygiene technology has done away with all that bother and fuss. When the tell-tale little white dots are found in your child’s hair, one phone call takes care of it all.
It’s Hot Air – and It’s Effective!
Head lice do not discriminate according to race, creed, or finances; they can sweep through a parochial school, a private academy, or a mundane public grade school at any time of the year; but they seem most prevalent during the first few weeks of school in the fall. To them, any scalp is Home Sweet Home. They usually travel to a new domicile via a child’s hat or cap, or even a borrowed brush or comb.
To combat these pests, modern lice exterminators use an effective hot air treatment for all residents ages four and up. One of the most efficient hot air mechanisms is the AirAlle ™ air blower. At temperatures lower than that of a household hairdryer, this gentle treatment takes about ninety minutes for each member of the household. A stream of hot air is channeled through a fine tined device onto the scalp and follicles, drying up and killing both lice and nits with over 95% effectiveness. Children under four should be treated in a more conservative, gentler manner – using a fine tooth comb several times a day for several days to get rid of the nits and their parents. In any case, the whole family can be ready to go out for an evening’s frolic the same day and the children will be ready for school the very next day.
Trust the Experts – Not Home Remedies or Folk Medicine!
Parents and grandparents want to be helpful and supportive when it comes to the care and nurture of your children. They mean well, but sometimes they are sadly behind the times and their advice is simply going to complicate things for you.
This can be especially true when it comes to head lice. You can be sure that your parents and their parents before them had to deal with this same unwelcome critter. They did not have the technology that we enjoy today, and so they often improvised, using their intuition and old wives tales handed down from generation to generation.
Modern experts agree that rinsing the hair with vinegar, or forming a mousse of mayonnaise and petroleum jelly to smother head lice will not work. Coal tar-based shampoos and conditioners do not remove nits, and leaves behind an unpleasant odor. Ice cubes rubbed into the scalp are a hit or miss proposition, and can damage delicate hair follicles in children.
When you need guaranteed lice removal fast, contact the experts who are trained and certified to do just that. In the long run, you’ll always save on time and money.
