How to Get Rid of Lice Eggs
By Lice Clinics of America
If you’re looking for how to get rid of lice eggs, you’re asking the right question. Many people don’t realize that the lice nit treatment is the most difficult part of a complete lice treatment. And if you don’t kill or remove all the eggs (also called lice nits), you’ll have to re-treat your head once they’ve hatched.
Although some products that kill head lice can also kill the lice eggs, their efficacy for killing eggs is usually lower.
Lice combs can be an effective way of getting rid of lice eggs. Even though they don’t kill them, lice combs are designed to catch the eggs in their fine teeth and pull them off the hair. Unfortunately, it takes a lot of patience and practice to do an effective comb-out, and most people doing home lice treatments are novices. The less experience you have using a lice comb, the lower your egg-removal efficacy is likely to be.
The professional AirAllé™ lice device is a very effective way of getting rid of lice eggs using just heated air. The treatment kills the eggs by drying them out. Like humans, lice can’t survive without moisture in their systems. Published research shows the AirAllé device kills lice and 99.2 percent of eggs in a single treatment.
