The Costs of DIY Lice Treatments
Professional lice treatments are often thought to be the most expensive option for taking care of head lice. However, professional treatments can often be the cheaper and more effective option, compared to Do It Yourself (DIY) or home remedy choices. Home remedies can bring safety risks, chemical exposure, and a greater risk of infecting other family members.
Professional lice removal for several family members can add up, but imagine the hassle and cost of multiple DIY treatments. Since most DIY options are just not very effective or efficient, it’s best to skip the head scratching and call the head lice treatment experts. Here are some extra added costs you might be paying for if you aren’t seeing a professional for your lice treatment needs:
Over the Counter Treatments
Treatments off of the store shelves just are not as effective. With new strains of ‘super lice’ making their rounds often times a stronger treatment is needed. Stronger doesn’t necessarily mean more chemicals, but simply more effective. Our AirAllé heated lice treatment is just the ticket. It offers a chemical free guaranteed treatment that uses heat to kill lice and nits.
Over the counter treatments may only create more of a problem by ridding the lice for a short period, only for it to return unnoticed and cause more of an outbreak. Over the counter options often call for multiple treatments over a long course of time, and come with no guarantee that the lice will actually be gone.
One of the most expensive parts of lice is finding child care during an outbreak. Children are more likely to get lice during the school year and thus will need to miss school. Most schools have a policy on head lice that doesn’t allow a student to attend if head lice is found, including many New Jersey area schools. Most schools only allow for a students return after proper effective treatment. This means you’ll be forced to take some time off of work. Taking time off work is never easy, but finding someone willing to watch a child with head lice can be even more difficult. You may end up having to pay extra to find someone willing to watch your child if they have head lice.
Dry Cleaning and Replacing Items
An outbreak of head lice often brings the urge to throw everything away. Every towel, sheet, pillow, and sometimes even mattress the person has touched. In reality head lice can’t go more than 24 hours without a host scalp to feed off of. Lice traveling from objects or clothing is not as common as many think. There often is no need to spend so much money on replacing items and over cleaning. Instead just be sure to follow simple lice clean up procedures and you’ll be lice free in no time. No need for expensive lice cleaning services or gimmicks.

Professional head lice treatments, like the ones provided at the LCA – New Jersey clinics, may seem more expensive but they are often the more cost efficient option. They require only one treatment and come with a lice free guarantee. Both our lice screenings and signature AirAllé treatment are chemical free and safer for your skin than most DIY options. Not to mention, the professionals can help give you all the tips and tricks you need for keeping and staying lice free afterwards. A professional treatment like the one you’ll get here at any Lice Clinics of America – New Jersey location can have you lice free in no time and back to work, school, and play.
