Don’t Give The Gift Of Lice This Season
T’was the night before Christmas and all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a louse.
Lice Clinics of America – Jersey has some great ideas for stocking stuffers for parents to make sure no louse is stirring at your home during the holidays and beyond: head lice prevention products.
“You would be surprised how many people give these products as gifts to their friends and family,” said Kevin Croy, owner of Lice Clinics of America – Jersey. “Once someone has gone through a struggle with head lice, they appreciate the value of preventive products.”
The clinic offers preventive products that include shampoos, sprays, and conditioners that work as a lice repellent. The holidays are a peak time for head lice as kids are out of school and spending time with family and friends. The gift of lice prevention products can help ensure children return to school lice-free.
“These products can be used daily or weekly,” Croy said. “They work by emitting an odor that is unnoticeable to humans but repulsive to lice.”
The products are all non-toxic—an important distinction as many traditional lice products use pesticides as their active ingredients. Pyrethroids, the class of pesticides used by traditional head lice products, have been linked to developmental and behavioral problems in children.
“All our products are pesticide-free—we wouldn’t have it any other way,” Croy said.
“Parents scoop these products up after we treat their family for head lice,” Croy said. “They know that the best way to treat head lice is to prevent them from getting into your hair in the first place.”
Croy also wants you to know that if you do get head lice, a cure for the condition is just one treatment away. Lice Clinics of America – Jersey is the area’s exclusive provider of treatment using the revolutionary AirAllé® medical device. AirAllé kills live head lice and more than 99 percent of eggs using heated air to dehydrate the bugs. Most treatments take about an hour and are guaranteed to be effective.
