Head lice is a growing epidemic, especially this year with known mutant species affecting millions. Lice have been recently becoming immune to the traditional medications which use chemicals and pesticides to try to kill of the lice.The only true 100% way to remove head lice involves using a certain combing technique to remove all nits from the hair. It is recommended that you use a trained lice professional to guarantee that the lice have been completely removed.
It takes 8-12 days for nits to develop and hatch. A nit is considered the egg and it typically takes about 1 weeks for them to hatch. Once a nit hatches, a nymph will appear. It will take roughly 7-10 days for a nymph to mature into an adult and be able to lay eggs. Adult Lice can lay up to 10 eggs a day and roughly 300 eggs in its life cycle before it dies. This cycle will continue until all eggs, nymphs and adults have been removed from your hair and home. If your head is not treated correctly the infestation may come back and continue to worsen. Lice do not disappear on their own!
