Discussing head lice isn’t always easy; it can be especially difficult if your child comes home traumatized by others’ reaction to the issue. This is why Lice Care Solutions is committed to helping people deal with head lice in the most effective and compassionate way possible. In this short interview, we ask licensed Psychotherapist Barbie Atkinson the best strategies for discussing head lice with children, teachers and other parents.

Lice Care Q&A

Lice Care: Today we’re here sitting with Dr. Barbie Atkinson from Catalyst Counseling to talk a little bit about lice.  Barbie, do you want to tell us something about yourself?

Barbie Atkinson: My name is Barbie Atkinson, I’m a psychotherapist and I have a private practice called Catalyst Counseling.  I see families, children, teen, couples, friends and I also have a program called Calm Crusaders, which is an anxiety program for children aged 9-12.

Lice Care: How do you explain to kids that they have lice?

Barbie Atkinson: It’s not going to be easy, but it’s definitely gonna be easier if you take a deep breath, a diaphragmatic, a big belly breath.  And you get in a good place yourself and you kind of lose the anxiety. You become calm so that you can communicate to your child what is going on.  Again, what lice is, again what lice isn’t. How common it is, and how it’s been with us from the beginning of time. And, that they got it from someone else in the classroom who got it from someone else who got it from someone else and that’s kind of how it works.  Head lice works with that kind of contagious head to head contact. So, there’s nothing wrong with them, they did nothing wrong, they were just being.

Lice Care: Is telling a while lie or keeping it a secret, is that the best way to go?

Barbie Atkinson: The way I approach things like this really, all the things, when you’re dealing with children, your children.  Having them trust you and having them trust that what you‘re saying is the truth and that they can come to you with anything and you are going to give them the information.  And so I think that we are doing a disservice to our kids for future encounters and experiences if we’re not telling them the truth and telling what it is that they have. Also, I love sharing with other parents and teachers and the nurses that you’ve got lice because it’s kind of alerting them.  If you haven’t been alerted and you haven’t gotten the letter, then this might be the first time and someone can take some precautions.

Lice Care: How do you reassure a child that may be a little afraid of treatment?

Barbie Atkinson: I think that acknowledging their feelings is going to be first and foremost.  And really sitting with them and whatever their feeling regarding it. And some empathy about how they can be scared.  This is new for both of us. But we know that it’s going to be good for you, and it’s going to be um, it’s going to help get the bugs out of your hair, whatever you’re calling it in your home, the lice.  And just being able to really connect to your child that way.

Lice Care: How do you deal with the shame and embarrassment associated with lice?

Barbie Atkinson: I think that’s a tricky one.  And, I’ll tell you personally, I think that it’s a normal part of having a head and having hair.  And with children having contact, such contact with other children and the whole selfie, like, you know when your posting.  And really getting in contact with another persons head or hair and they’re so easily transmitted that being able to simplify this and being able to hear that they may be embarrassed, depending on how a teacher has told them or taken them out of the classroom.  Or maybe a child has been taunted. Oh, you’ve got, you know….But we know that there’s no socioeconomic background that a child has; long hair, short hair, clean hear. Head lice do not discriminate.

Lice Care: So, Barbie this was all fantastic information, thank you so much.  How can a parent get ahold of you if they have questions or maybe they’re interested in counseling for their child, themselves or even with their family?

Barbie Atkinson: I would love to be able to speak with someone about the destigmatization of things like this, things like lice, and all the other things that could potentially happen with families and phobias and anxiety and negative thinking and we can look at that.  I am at the website, which is https://www.catalyst-counseling.com.  And my email is barbie@catalyst-counseling.com.  I have 2 locations in Houston that we can talk with if that’s something you’d like to do or just an email inquiry of anything that I can answer.

Lice Care: Wonderful, thank you.

Barbie Atkinson: Thank you.

Lice Care: We tailor our services to meet the needs of all families.  Whether your child has a behavior issue, ADHD is on the autism spectrum, or maybe has a sensory processing disorder.  Regardless, we’re here to help.

I called and they were super attentive to getting me in the same day I called. Lea was amazing and took such great and thorough care of each of us. She took the time to explain preventative measures we could do at home and also was super informative on what to do after she left. I was super stressed that we all had lice as we had never had it before and after Lea left I felt so much at ease!!! This was worth the time and money and so much more comfortable to be in my home getting treated. Highly recommend!!!!

One of the best experiences I've ever had with a business that deals in something icky! We called yesterday on a Sunday morning and spoke with Lea. Lea was extremely friendly, courteous, informative and calming! She assured us they could come out and check our three heads of hair that same day! When we called back (after making sure we three could all be home), we spoke with Jacob. Jacob was just as friendly and courteous, with a touch of great humor. They scheduled us right away to be there in two hours. Shannon was our technician (not sure what they're called) and she was super nice, efficient, informative and gentle. She worked with us in precise fashion and showed us step by step what she was doing. She also left us easy instructions for follow up care. Ironically, we all were completely lice free! Trust me, with our busy lives, the peace of mind of having professionals clear us of any worry was well worth the price! Thank you Lea, Jacob and Shannon. Y'all are total ROCK STARS!!!! I will use you again and recommend you to all my friends!

Lice Care Solutions is a great alternative to other lice removal places. I love that we were treated in the comfort of our own home. I called before 8am and was immediately connected to a scheduler who was able to fit me in the same day. Our technician, Courtney, was on time, friendly, and very professional. She was able to check all the members of my family without us all having to spend hours at a facility. I was able to make dinner and start washing all the bedding, towels, etc. while my daughter was being treated. That alone is worth the price! Also, my daughter commented on how Lice Care Solution's method of combing through the hair with coconut oil is much more pleasant than the other place's method of combing through dry hair. Courtney was extremely thorough. I feel confident that she got every single nit. While I hope I never have to see her again (haha), I would definitely recommend Courtney and Lice Care Solutions. THANK YOU!

Does Tea Tree Oil Kill Head Lice?

Does Tea Tree Oil Kill Head Lice?

In-Home Lice Removal
& Lice Treatment Services

Medical Professional To Your Door
45 Day Guarantee  

Tea tree oil is a concentrated extract from the leaves of the tea tree plant. It has been used medicinally by the Aboriginal people of Australia for centuries for its natural healing and antiseptic power.  People around the world continue to use tea tree oil as an anti-microbial agent, to combat against yeast and fungal infections, to treat sore muscles, and much more. Among other uses, tea tree oil is also used to treat head lice.

Tea-Tree-Head-Lice

What does the research say?

One study published in Parasitology Research showed that tea tree oil kills lice in the nymph and adult stages of life. Tea tree oil treatments also reduced the number of lice eggs that hatched.  In the study, the investigators compared the effectiveness of tea tree oil vs. nerolidol in treating lice infestations. Tea tree oil was more effective than nerolidol against head lice with 100 % mortality at 30 min and 1 % concentration.

Another study, published in BMC Dermatology, also found that tea tree oil (along with lavender oil) was effective in completely removing a lice infestation in 97% of the 42 subjects in the study.  These results were significantly higher compared to subjects treated with the product containing pyrethrins and piperonyl butoxide (only 25% of the 40 subjects treated).  Pyrethrins and piperonyl butoxide are common ingredients in anti-lice shampoo.

The International Journal of Dermatology compared botanical and synthetic substances for preventing lice in primary school-age kids. The background of the study states, “Control efforts using chemical treatments are becoming increasingly ineffective, with insecticide resistance recorded in several countries…Many commercially available substances reputedly have effective repellent qualities, but remain untested.”  The researchers compared tea tree oil, lavender oil, peppermint, and DEET. Tea tree oil was the most effective treatment tested. Tea tree oil and peppermint proved to be most useful for repelling lice. The results of the study state “Comparatively, tea tree oil was most efficacious, with DEET ranking equal second overall with coconut, peppermint, and a botanical mixture.”

Tea Tree Oil And Head Lice

Is Tea Tree Oil Safe To Treat Head Lice?

The National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH), reports:

▪  Most people can use topical products containing tea tree oil without problems, but some people may develop contact dermatitis (an allergic skin rash) or skin irritation on the parts of the body where the product was used.

▪ Tea tree oil should not be swallowed. Taking it orally can cause serious symptoms such as confusion and ataxia (loss of muscle coordination).

Application Of Tea Tree Oil To Treat And Prevent Head Lice
Using shampoos and conditioners which contain tea tree oil is a very effective treatment for head lice.  Used with a nit comb, the dual acting tea tree oil antiseptic kills off unwanted head lice and eggs and ensures lice prone scalps are clean and protected.

One of the best experiences I've ever had with a business that deals in something icky! We called yesterday on a Sunday morning and spoke with Lea. Lea was extremely friendly, courteous, informative and calming! She assured us they could come out and check our three heads of hair that same day! When we called back (after making sure we three could all be home), we spoke with Jacob. Jacob was just as friendly and courteous, with a touch of great humor. They scheduled us right away to be there in two hours. Shannon was our technician (not sure what they're called) and she was super nice, efficient, informative and gentle. She worked with us in precise fashion and showed us step by step what she was doing. She also left us easy instructions for follow up care. Ironically, we all were completely lice free! Trust me, with our busy lives, the peace of mind of having professionals clear us of any worry was well worth the price! Thank you Lea, Jacob and Shannon. Y'all are total ROCK STARS!!!! I will use you again and recommend you to all my friends!

Lice Care Solutions is a great alternative to other lice removal places. I love that we were treated in the comfort of our own home. I called before 8am and was immediately connected to a scheduler who was able to fit me in the same day. Our technician, Courtney, was on time, friendly, and very professional. She was able to check all the members of my family without us all having to spend hours at a facility. I was able to make dinner and start washing all the bedding, towels, etc. while my daughter was being treated. That alone is worth the price! Also, my daughter commented on how Lice Care Solution's method of combing through the hair with coconut oil is much more pleasant than the other place's method of combing through dry hair. Courtney was extremely thorough. I feel confident that she got every single nit. While I hope I never have to see her again (haha), I would definitely recommend Courtney and Lice Care Solutions. THANK YOU!

Tea tree oil is a concentrated extract from the leaves of the tea tree plant. It has been used medicinally by the Aboriginal people of Australia for centuries for its natural healing and antiseptic power.  People around the world continue to use tea tree oil as an anti-microbial agent, to combat against yeast and fungal infections, to treat sore muscles, and much more. Among other uses, tea tree oil is also used to treat head lice.

Tea-Tree-Head-Lice

What does the research say?

One study published in Parasitology Research showed that tea tree oil kills lice in the nymph and adult stages of life. Tea tree oil treatments also reduced the number of lice eggs that hatched.  In the study, the investigators compared the effectiveness of tea tree oil vs. nerolidol in treating lice infestations. Tea tree oil was more effective than nerolidol against head lice with 100 % mortality at 30 min and 1 % concentration.

Another study, published in BMC Dermatology, also found that tea tree oil (along with lavender oil) was effective in completely removing a lice infestation in 97% of the 42 subjects in the study.  These results were significantly higher compared to subjects treated with the product containing pyrethrins and piperonyl butoxide (only 25% of the 40 subjects treated).  Pyrethrins and piperonyl butoxide are common ingredients in anti-lice shampoo.

The International Journal of Dermatology compared botanical and synthetic substances for preventing lice in primary school-age kids. The background of the study states, “Control efforts using chemical treatments are becoming increasingly ineffective, with insecticide resistance recorded in several countries…Many commercially available substances reputedly have effective repellent qualities, but remain untested.”  The researchers compared tea tree oil, lavender oil, peppermint, and DEET. Tea tree oil was the most effective treatment tested. Tea tree oil and peppermint proved to be most useful for repelling lice. The results of the study state “Comparatively, tea tree oil was most efficacious, with DEET ranking equal second overall with coconut, peppermint, and a botanical mixture.”

 

Tea Tree Oil And Head Lice

Is Tea Tree Oil Safe To Treat Head Lice?

The National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH), reports:

▪  Most people can use topical products containing tea tree oil without problems, but some people may develop contact dermatitis (an allergic skin rash) or skin irritation on the parts of the body where the product was used.

▪ Tea tree oil should not be swallowed. Taking it orally can cause serious symptoms such as confusion and ataxia (loss of muscle coordination).

Application Of Tea Tree Oil To Treat And Prevent Head Lice
Using shampoos and conditioners which contain tea tree oil is a very effective treatment for head lice.  Used with a nit comb, the dual acting tea tree oil antiseptic kills off unwanted head lice and eggs and ensures lice prone scalps are clean and protected.

 Top 5 Ways on How to Prevent Head Lice for the Holidays. One Thing We All Wish Not to Share Is Head Lice for the Holidays.

It’s that time of year again where families get together and enjoy each others’ company and share the joy of this festive season. One thing we all wish not to share is head lice for the holidays. This time of year the number of head lice cases tend to jump due to familIes sharing quality time with each other in close quarters. Here at Lice Care Solutions we put our top 5 ways on how to prevent head lice for the holidays!

  1. Do not share personal items such as hair brushes towels, pillows. Lice can spread by indirect contact with personal items that the affected person used.
  2. Do not share hats, scarves, coats and headphones
  3. Pull your hair back in a ponytail. Lice use your hair as a ladder to get to your scalp.
  4. Apply Lice Care Solutions preventive gel. Lice can not latch on to the hair follicle when the hair is artificially dirty with product.
  5. Get checked before the holidays. Not everyone has symptoms.

That’s it! Have fun this Holiday, and if you find your child does have head lice, don’t sweat it! Just know that Lice Care Solutions, your local head lice removal company, is only a call or text away.

I was super stressed that we all had lice as we had never had it before and after Lea left I felt so much at ease!!! This was worth the time and money and so much more comfortable to be in my home getting treated. Highly recommend!!!!

One of the best experiences I've ever had with a business that deals in something icky! We called yesterday on a Sunday morning and spoke with Lea. Lea was extremely friendly, courteous, informative and calming! She assured us they could come out and check our three heads of hair that same day! When we called back (after making sure we three could all be home), we spoke with Jacob. Jacob was just as friendly and courteous, with a touch of great humor. They scheduled us right away to be there in two hours. Shannon was our technician (not sure what they're called) and she was super nice, efficient, informative and gentle. She worked with us in precise fashion and showed us step by step what she was doing. She also left us easy instructions for follow up care. Ironically, we all were completely lice free! Trust me, with our busy lives, the peace of mind of having professionals clear us of any worry was well worth the price! Thank you Lea, Jacob and Shannon. Y'all are total ROCK STARS!!!! I will use you again and recommend you to all my friends!

Lice Care Solutions is a great alternative to other lice removal places. I love that we were treated in the comfort of our own home. I called before 8am and was immediately connected to a scheduler who was able to fit me in the same day. Our technician, Courtney, was on time, friendly, and very professional. She was able to check all the members of my family without us all having to spend hours at a facility. I was able to make dinner and start washing all the bedding, towels, etc. while my daughter was being treated. That alone is worth the price! Also, my daughter commented on how Lice Care Solution's method of combing through the hair with coconut oil is much more pleasant than the other place's method of combing through dry hair. Courtney was extremely thorough. I feel confident that she got every single nit. While I hope I never have to see her again (haha), I would definitely recommend Courtney and Lice Care Solutions.

Top 5 Ways to Treat Your Home For Head Lice & Nits

Head lice infestations have been a nuisance to human beings for aeons. While they are a real pain to deal with in many cases, you can get your home and family back to a lice-free life without taking extreme measures.

In this blog post, we’ll inform you exactly what head lice are, how they survive and how they multiply. Then we’ll provide 5 best practices you can implement to clear your home of head-lice for the long-run.

Head lice are small parasitic insects the size of a sesame seed. They feed on tiny bits of human blood and lay their eggs on the hair of human heads. They may cause itching and irritation on the scalp, but they can also go unnoticed. They are most prevalent in children aged 3-12.

Lice cannot jump or fly and are usually transmitted to another person by crawling from head to head. Head lice can spread through personal belongings, however. For this reason, it’s important to follow the following 5 best practices to clear your home of head lice.

But before we get started, let’s cover a few more important facts:

  • Lice lay their eggs on human hair, about 1 cm away from the scalp
  • The eggs need heat to incubate, and cannot hatch at room temperature
  • Adult lice can’t live for more than 48 hours without a source of food (human blood).

In Home Lice Treatment

1. Identify Family Members That Are At Risk

Remember, head lice are most commonly transmitted through personal contact. It’s vital to carefully inspect and treat each family member that might have been in contact with the person with the head lice. For example, children who share a bed, brush, comb or towel should be examined carefully.

2. Wash Infested Personal Items

Head lice can’t live away from the human scalp for more than 48 hours. Once a head lice infestation has been discovered and treated on a family member, it’s important to wash all items that have been in contact with that family member within the last 48 hours. Wash the items in hot water and use the heated dry cycle on the dryer. Make sure to also wash personal items such as combs, brushes and hair bands every day in hot water.

3. Seal Non-Washable Items

Items that cannot be washed should be bagged and sealed for 2 weeks. Any nits that hatch within the 2 week period won’t survive without a source of feeding.

4. Vacuum High-Risk, High-Traffic Areas

Make sure to vacuum furniture, car seats and all areas that are highly trafficked. Focus on areas where family members rest their heads. Wipe leather furniture and car seats with your usual leather cleaner.

5. Don’t Use Fumigant Sprays

Fumigant sprays do more harm than good, as they are toxic and are easy to get on the skin and into the lungs. You can clear your home of head lice with natural products in the same amount of time.

It’s possible to clear your home of head lice without taking extreme measures. These 5 best practices will get you on the road to success today!

Lice Care Solutions saved us ! I had a big presentation for work due when we discovered my granddaughter had lice. Yikes ! I didn’t have time to deal with this. But I called and Lice Solutions had Lindsey come to our home, check all of us and help get heads and home to be lice free in just a few hours. It was worth every penny to use this service and have peace of mind. I will totally recommend them to anyone needing a quick, professional solution in the comfort of your own home.

How to Check for Head Lice

Getting lice can be inconvenient, frustrating and even a bit confusing. Will the lice go away by themselves? How quickly do they spread? Should you use an organic solution or a more toxic one? Is in-home lice removal more or less effective than going to a lice salon or lice clinic for lice-removal treatment?

While we can’t answer all of your questions in one blog post, today we want to share why we recommend in-home lice removal treatment over a lice salon or lice clinic for lice treatment.

So Why Should You Use In-Home Lice Removal Service Rather Than a Lice Salon or Lice Clinic?

1) In-Home Treatment Allows You to Start Delousing Your House Immediately

When treated in home, you and your family can get a head start on isolating infested items, vacuuming furniture, and washing sheets and clothing that may be infested with lice. With in-home treatment, you have a professional on-site to answer your questions.

2) In-home treatment is easier to coordinate

Let’s face it: it can be a struggle to round up multiple children at once. Then there’s the challenge of locating a place you’ve never before driven to. With in-home treatment, one child can be receiving treatment while the other is getting home from school. What’s more, the technician comes to you!

3) In-Home Treatment Is More Private

While it’s very common to catch lice, the stigma around it can make the whole situation feel icky and a bit embarrassing. Save yourself from the lice clinic “walk of shame” with comfortable, in-home treatment.

4) In-Home Lice Treatment Can Be Cheaper Than Going to a Lice Clinic or Lice Salon

Because many in-home lice removal companies charge by the hour instead of by the head, you can save money by investing in a reputable in-home lice removal experience than and expensive lice clinic.

I called and they were super attentive to getting me in the same day I called. Lea was amazing and took such great and thorough care of each of us. She took the time to explain preventative measures we could do at home and also was super informative on what to do after she left. I was super stressed that we all had lice as we had never had it before and after Lea left I felt so much at ease!!! This was worth the time and money and so much more comfortable to be in my home getting treated. Highly recommend!!!!

Lea made this terrifying experience very easy and fun. This is the best answer for our lice problem. She made the kids very comfortable and happy. If this happens again, we will definitely recommend lice care solutions. I will be telling everyone at school and daycare about this service. They are a life saver. Her experience was top notch and she worked very hard. Lea was the best and worth every penny.

One of the best experiences I've ever had with a business that deals in something icky! We called yesterday on a Sunday morning and spoke with Lea. Lea was extremely friendly, courteous, informative and calming! She assured us they could come out and check our three heads of hair that same day! When we called back (after making sure we three could all be home), we spoke with Jacob. Jacob was just as friendly and courteous, with a touch of great humor. They scheduled us right away to be there in two hours. Shannon was our technician (not sure what they're called) and she was super nice, efficient, informative and gentle. She worked with us in precise fashion and showed us step by step what she was doing. She also left us easy instructions for follow up care. Ironically, we all were completely lice free! Trust me, with our busy lives, the peace of mind of having professionals clear us of any worry was well worth the price! Thank you Lea, Jacob and Shannon. Y'all are total ROCK STARS!!!! I will use you again and recommend you to all my friends!

Lice Care Solutions is a great alternative to other lice removal places. I love that we were treated in the comfort of our own home. I called before 8am and was immediately connected to a scheduler who was able to fit me in the same day. Our technician, Courtney, was on time, friendly, and very professional. She was able to check all the members of my family without us all having to spend hours at a facility. I was able to make dinner and start washing all the bedding, towels, etc. while my daughter was being treated. That alone is worth the price! Also, my daughter commented on how Lice Care Solution's method of combing through the hair with coconut oil is much more pleasant than the other place's method of combing through dry hair. Courtney was extremely thorough. I feel confident that she got every single nit. While I hope I never have to see her again (haha), I would definitely recommend Courtney and Lice Care Solutions. THANK YOU!

My experience was fantastic, called a bunch of places and they were immediately responsive. Same day service. Know that the process will take at least 2 hours for someone with long hair per person. Massively thorough. Tried and tested methodology that is guaranteed to work. Unbelievable methodical. Experts really. Wouldn’t go with anyone else in Houston they’re the best. THANK YOU.

We needed to get checked after an outbreak at my son’s school and Lice Care Solutions was quick, professional, and thorough. They made an uncomfortable situation much better. They were knowledgeable and professional and the convenience of having someone come to your house is worth every penny. We now have peace of mind and are armed with information. Highly recommend if you or your loved ones are ever exposed to lice!

They were so thorough and patient and so helpful in explaining the process and what we needed to do the next week. I feel 100% confident that our entire family is in the clear thank to their help!
