Kill Head Lice with AirAllé.
A one and done solution.
As a parent, this sounds like an absolutely amazing option when having to deal with lice. As many of you know, I am an absolute believer in prevention. This goes for any illnesses that can be prevented or to lower the risk of transfer by proper hand washing and many other methods.
But, with head lice, they don’t discriminate and just as I take extra caution to avoid getting sick, I take extra measure to try and prevent getting lice. While these tips to prevent head lice do work, there’s times when it’s gone beyond the point of prevention and you need to attack the infestation head on.
Did You Know?
Treating lice at home can be a long, frustrating, costly and even painful experience.
Many of the traditional “lice shampoos” are pesticides, which lice have developed resistance to, making them even less effective.
Some parents report spending months and 100s or 1,000s of dollars unsuccessfully treating lice themselves
There are lots of products that kill hatched lice (the creepy critters crawling through their kids’ hair and sucking their blood), but most have little efficacy on the lice eggs and if you don’t kill or remove all the lice eggs, they will hatch new lice and the infestation will continue.
They can pay someone else to treat the lice for them. Although not cheap, hiring a professional may ultimately cost less than trying to self-treat; and the infestation is usually gone in less time than it takes to self-treat. These professional lice-removal services fall into two camps:
– First, there are “nitpickers” who will spend hours combing lice and eggs out of the hair. They often charge hundreds of dollars per hour for the service, but are more effective (and less painful) than parents trying to comb the lice and nits out themselves. However, it is easy for even professionals to miss some eggs (which are the size of a tiny speck and are glued fast to the hair shaft), so it is hard for them to guarantee the treatment.
– Second, there are Certified AirAllé Operators™ that use the FDA-cleared AirAllé™ medical device to professionally treat head lice in a single treatment. The treatments take about an hour, cost around $175 and are guaranteed by most operators (the operators are independent business professionals that set their own pricing, processes, guidelines and guarantees).
I’m the type of Mom who likes to do things in a more holistic way, ways that won’t put my kids into harms way. That is why I do my best to prevent them. But, I will tell you this honestly, if my child were to get a lice infestation, I would want to get rid of it the first time and not have to worry about getting a re-infestation because I missed an egg. If re-infestation continues to happen, going to your nearest drug store and paying $25 a pop for that chemical-laden shampoo adds up.
The AirAllé device has been clinically proven to kill more than 99 percent of lice eggs. So even if the operators don’t remove all the eggs during a comb-out, the dead eggs won’t hatch any more lice.
A complete AirAllé treatment usually consists of:
1) a heat treatment using the device (about 30 minutes),
2) a comb-out (usually about 30 minutes, but may take more time depending on hair length and the infestation),
3) a quick rinse using non-toxic dimethicone oil that will kill any hatched lice that might have survived the AirAllé device.
To me, that sounds painless enough and it is something I definitely will do if I have the misfortune of meeting these critters. Not to mention that this device has been clinically proven to kill more than 99 percent of lice eggs.
Weigh Your Options.
You can always try the combing method but, that is not only time consuming but, can be painful and may require more than one time to be rid of the eggs. There’s also the over the counter shampoos that contain pesticides that sometimes require multiple treatments. You can even try the suffocation method with mayonnaise but, that’s method and not always effective.
I’ve mentioned in the past of ways to prevent lice but, I never mentioned what I’d do once it has gone beyond prevention. I’d most definitely go for the heated air method of AirAllé that kills 99 percent of eggs in ONE treatment. So, that’s instant relief for us parents, it’s FDA cleared and scientifically proven to get rid of lice the first time.
Not to mention, it keeps me far away from those buggers when a professional steps in and does it for me. To me, that’s worth the investment already! If you are going through a lice infestation RIGHT NOW, check out some locations that offer AirAllé treatmentsto rid yourself of the problem.
Remember, head lice is very common in school-aged children and it’s very easy to transfer from head to head. They also do not discriminate cleanliness and though prevention goes a long way, it’s nice to know that you can get rid of lice quickly with AirAllé.
