Get Rid of Head Lice

One of the most common problems with hair is when you get the head lice. And the most common symptom is an itchy scalp which is often confused with the formation of dandruff or sometime with dirty scalp. It is very important that instead of coming to any kind of conclusion without confirming what is the reason behind the itchy scalp it will be unwise if it is left uncared. Both lice and dandruff are dangerous for your hair.

Any one can get head lice and specially the school going children pick up very fast because they tend to have close physical contact with each other and often share personal items. Parents of these kids are very worried with these problems. It is a myth that lice jump or fly. The fact is that lice crawls very fast and they are generally contracted from hair –to hair contact. The head louse (singular of lice) is a tiny but visible to naked eyes, wingless parasitic insect that survives among human hairs and feeds on extremely small amounts of blood drawn from the scalp. They do not spread disease, but they are transmittable and can just be utter annoying and embarrassing. They also require a person’s body temperature and moisture to survive and die in when off the body. They cannot survive on the body of the animals.

Severe scratching can lead to inflammation, bothersome rash, small red bumps or sores and bacterial infection. Lice eggs called nits are also very bothersome as they cannot be removed by brushing or shaking them off. Lice generally lay eggs or nits on hair shafts very close to the skin’s surface, where the temperature is perfect for keeping the nits warm until they hatch that is 1 to 2 weeks.

The question arises how to get rid of the lice and the nits? Simply combing your hair with a fine tooth comb can remove lice but not the nits. They cannot be removed by combing. They can be removed by hand. Hand and comb are considered zero cost method but it takes lot of time. It is advisable to comb hair with fine tooth comb if there are any lice after applying conditioner to your hair or your child’s hair as it temporarily immobilizes the movement of the lice and makes it easier to get a comb through the hair. Other alternative treatments are the application of petroleum jelly, mayonnaise, or olive oil that are considered very useful to suffocate head lice. If there are no monetary issues then you can go for medication but remember that it should be prescribed by a reputed doctor otherwise you may cause damage to your hair. It is also important that you follow the instruction that is provided with the medicine or lotion that is sure to kill the lice and the nits. It is also essential to pay attention to the age of your child. If the child is too small those is 2 years or under then avoid such powerful products on the delicate head of your child. Go for zero cost method. It is to remind you again that whenever you are following any kind of medication it is important to pay attention to what your doctor say and follow the instruction properly so that you can get the result safely.
