Head lice are a parasite, for this reason they cannot survive away from their host. Therefore is a guaranteed way to kill head lice.
To ensure complete eradication of head lice the parasite must be removed from the host. This can be done by using a nit comb and removing all lice and their eggs from the scalp. This can be quite a tedious task as the nits are minute and are secured tightly to the hair shaft and you will need to repeat the process every few days to ensure all have been removed.
[You can use a combing solution to help detangle the knots and make the combing process a little easier, this will also block the louse’ spiracles which will slow them down and make them easier to locate.]
Most head lice treatments will kill head lice by paralysis or asphyxiation which is a mush easier option. However, in most cases the treatment process still requires an element of combing and a repeat treatment in 7 days time to target any undetected hatchlings.
