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.

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!

 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!!!!

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!

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!

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.

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!

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.

Wet Checks vs. Dry Checks for Head Lice

If you or a loved one has suffered from head lice, you probably know the experience can be itchy, embarrassing and downright confusing. Where should you go for reliable information, and what the heck is the difference between a wet check and a dry check?

Recently, a client of ours reached out with just that question. Since we pride ourselves on teaching “all things lice,” we thought you might benefit from the information as well. Here’s what she wrote (email published with the client’s permission):

“Hello,
My child came home from school a couple hours ago with head lice. I’ve been doing a ton of research and am pretty sure I’m going to hire you guys, but I wanted to know if you do wet checks or dry checks. I’ve read wet checks might be better…

Thanks for your help!
Sally R.”

To answer Sally’s question, all of our Lice Care Solutions technicians perform wet checks, which means we lubricate the client’s hair with our all-natural solution and perform a thorough comb through using a serrated lice-removal comb. Unlike dry checks (also known as the visual inspection method), wet checks demobilize any lice that were in our client’s hair, and any nits that may have been there become loose immediately. We then physically remove all visible lice and nits from our client’s hair.

While wet checks are more time consuming than dry checks, studies have proven wet checks to be much more effective and, therefore, an optimal detection method. That said, you’ll probably still find the school nurse using dry checks, since the visual inspection method is much faster.

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!

Lice Care Solutions came to our house and did a fantastic job! They found some lice on my daughter and treated her and checked the rest of us. 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!

Is Your Head Lice Shampoo Toxic

Is Your Head Lice Shampoo Safe?

For many years, head lice shampoo has been used by many parents to treat an infestation problem. However, it is just nowadays that people are looking more carefully as to what is really in these products and wondering if these are really safe for kids.

The sad thing is, many report that these products are not anyways 100% effective in dealing with a lice problem. Worse, lice shampoos contain toxins that are known to be bad for the human body. In fact, the effects might be worse on your kid, as they are normally more sensitive to toxins. There is nothing wrong with buying head lice shampoo, but as much as possible, skip these.

Lice Shampoo Toxic Ingredients:

Lindane 

is a neurotoxin that is normally used as a pesticide. It has been linked to cancer and is capable of causing harm to the nervous, hormonal and reproductive systems. Unfortunately, it can be found in many lice treatment products. Lindane is banned for certain uses but it is still allowed in these types of products. It also tends to linger in the environment and may be passed on through the food chain.

Malathion

This is a nerve gas derivative that is also popular in fighting insects. It is considered to be safer than lindane but is still dangerous as it interferes with the nervous system. It triggers asthma and affects the normal balance of hormones in the body. Worse, it is easily absorbed by the skin so when it is used against lice, you can just imagine it getting absorbed by your child’s body easily.

Pyrethroids

Composed of permethrin, pyrethrin, and many others, these are synthetic pesticides that are toxic to the immune system and the thyroid. Some have been banned from food production, but they are still found in lice products, specifically sprays used for homes and schools. They have been marketed as safe because they are produced from chrysanthemum flowers, but they are already chemically engineered and are more toxic.

These are just some of the dangerous ingredients in the popular lice shampoos and treatments. In fact, using them might bring worse consequences than the lice infestation itself. There are many studies that have shown that exposure to these chemicals leads to severe medical conditions.

Fortunately, there are alternatives. Natural Lice Treatments that do not have these chemicals can be used, though their effectiveness is also not guaranteed. To be safe and sure, use a fine comb. It is tedious and you would have to do it a few times, but you can get rid of the problem without requiring any other products.

Though your child will experience some discomfort, a lice infestation does not bring anything more than that. This means you do not have to worry about diseases. You can patiently and peacefully fight them with nothing more than a comb, and you will be rewarded for your hard work.

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.

Our technician was very thorough and answered all of our questions. She was gentle with my daughters hair as she has very long thick hair. It was worth the $$ for peace of mind. We would 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!
