Fact: The nit is approximately the size of the tip of a pencil lead.

Fact: The average speed of a louse is 3.75 inches per minute. This is equivalent to 18.75 feet in one hour, and approximately 450 feet per day. This is over the length of one football field.

Fact: Lice are developing resistance to certain medical treatment methods, including the use of pesticides. This can lead to future lice epidemics.

Fact: Lice are used in Archaeogenetics. The mitochondrial DNA of female lice can be isolated and used to determine migration patterns of ancient humans.

Fact: The word “lousy” is actually derived from louse (the singular form of lice), as having a lice infection is definitely lousy.

Fact: Itching from a lice infestation is an allergic reaction not to the bite itself, but from the saliva secreted onto the scalp.

Fact: Head lice are incapable of jumping, hopping, or flying.

Fact: Home remedies including mayonnaise and olive oil, though typically difficult, are valid options.

Fact: African Americans are less likely to get lice than other races. This is due to the fact that the African American hair shaft has a different shape that lice have problems adhering to. However, there are lice in Africa that have evolved their infection capabilities.

Fact: A lice outbreak will occur in over 80% of all schools .

Fact: If the  treatment for lice was not effective upon first use, it is highly unlikely that it will work the second time, and you may need to seek other treatment methods.

Fact: The manual hands approach to the process of looking and picking nits out of the hair is a necessary component of any treatment plan.

Fact: A comb alone will not get rid of a lice infestation. The comb is used for finding nits. If all the nits are discovered, there may still be female adult lice capable of producing more nits.

Fact: The best steps you can take toward the treatment and prevention of lice, is to educate yourself about the subject.

 Chemicals treatment VS Natural treatment

So, why didn’t the drugstore treatments work?

Because lice have become immune to the pesticide-based treatments.

Bugs develop resistance.

The problem is, you can’t keep putting stronger and stronger poisons on people’s heads because people DON’T develop resistance.

Step one will be using the Anti-louse spray to prevent and then, to treat, use this all-natural mask for 20 minutes on your/your child head and you will see the results!

About the Author:

Pure natural cosmetics is not just a name, for me and many others it became a way of life! All my life I had an affinity to healthy life style. As a dancer and a trainer, i was always looking for the good combination of healthy food and healthy movement. In time I learned that its not only what you eat that matters. Also what you use as cosmetics or medical products is important. The skin is the biggest organ in our body. About 60% of what we put on our skin gets into the blood system and with that to the inner organs. I invest my heart and soul into “Pure natural cosmetics” and the best part is to hear the amazing comments from my client.
