Here at ClearLice we are very proud of the line of products that we have created that can help you get rid of lice and nits in your home. In order to make sure that our products are used correctly, we are happy to give our customers information on how to make the most out of our products.
If you are thinking about purchasing one of our head lice treatment kits, but are not sure about how to use it or what steps to take in order to make sure that the product is used as indicated, we encourage you to read this article where will explain how to treat lice in your home and how to make sure that you and your kids stay lice and nit free.
How Should You Treat Lice?
One of the things that most people tend to overlook when treating head lice is the potential risk for lice infestation of the environment. Remember that once you’ve treated head lice on the infested heads using our line of products, you still need to sanitize all towels, bedding, brushes, combs, ornaments and hair bands that might have been used by the person carrying the lice. In fact, this is one of the most vital steps when it comes to making sure that your home remains free of these bugs.
But before we get into that, we always like to make sure that our clients use our products as indicated. This guarantees the effectiveness of the product and can even help our customers prevent future head lice infestations, if followed accordingly. Depending on the size and product you order, our Lice Removal Kits will contain an 8-oz bottle of lice and nit remover shampoo, an 8-oz bottle of conditioner, an 8-oz bottle of the home treatment spray as well as a bottle of our laundry enzyme additive as well as a certified stainless steel micro-grooved nit comb and a shower cap. The first thing we need to do is take out everything that comes inside the kit and set it on a table so we can accurately identify the elements that make up our kit. Once we have identified all of the elements in our kit we can move on to the treatment itself; remember that ClearLice will get rid of lice within 24 hours, if the instructions are followed as indicated.
Using ClearLice Treatment Products
The first thing we will want to do is wet the hair and use the ClearLice shampoo; for short hair we will need about 2 ounces of our product and for thicker or longer hair we will need between 3 and 4 ounces, make sure to cover all the areas behind the ears and the lower part of the neck as lice love to hide in these spots. Once you have enough foam, cover your or your child’s head with the shower cap and wait about 40 minutes for the product to work. Once the 40 minutes have passed, remove the shower cap and rinse your head thoroughly with warm water. You’ll want to repeat the whole process for 20 minutes.
Once you rinse your child’s head for the second time, you’ll want to move on to the conditioner. Our conditioner is designed to help you comb easily through your child’s head in order to remove any leftover nit shells, dead bugs, and debris. Simply take the conditioner and apply it to your or your child’s head while softly massaging the scalp. Do not rinse the conditioner out. You will then take the stainless steel comb that is included with your kit and you can start sectioning off the hair into several sections and combing through.
This will effectively get rid of lice on your child’s scalp and hair, but in order to prevent future infestations, there are some extra steps that we need to take in order to sanitize any household items or articles of clothing that might have been exposed to the bugs.
Treating Lice in Your Environment
What you will want to do is take washable items that came in contact with an infested person’s head and wash these using our ClearLice laundry additive. You will use one ounce of laundry additive for a small load and two ounces for a large load. After they have been washed, put them in the dryer at full heat for at least 45 minutes. By doing this, we are killing off any lice that might have been leftover in these items and that could potentially re-infest you or your family members.
Finally, once we have sanitized the items that could potentially be a risk for our family, we need to lightly mist the ClearLice Household Spray on any exposed fabric or material surfaces that cannot be washed directly. For example, pillows, furniture, car interior, carpets, etc. Make sure to use the spray, let it sit, and then vacuum these items in order to remove any dead nits or lice from the surface. Make sure to empty the vacuum bag outside in order to decrease the risk of the lice finding a new host within your home.
