How to Cure Lice
By Lice Clinics of America
Head lice have been around for thousands of years, and will most likely be around for thousands more. However, there are a variety of treatments for lice. So even though you can’t “cure” lice, you can be lice-free if you kill or remove all the lice and lice nits on your head (and assuming you don’t get infested again).
Lice treatments fall into five general categories: lice pesticides (which poison the lice), viscous substances (which suffocate the lice), essential oils (which are often referred to as natural lice treatments that may kill or repel lice), lice combs (which don’t kill lice but rather lift them out of the hair), and heated air (which kills lice and eggs by drying them out).
Lice treatment products come in a variety of forms, including sprays, gels, shampoos, topical drugs, combs and medical devices. Most of these are available for home lice treatment, but some are available only at a professional lice business.
