Vodka to Treat Head Lice? There’s a Better Way.

Home Remedies for Lice are Not Effective and Can Be Dangerous

An article in the Daily Mail found that 8 percent of UK parents had tried to use Vodka to cure their children of head lice. Surprised? You shouldn’t be. People have tried all kinds of kooky, sometimes dangerous home remedies for lice removal.

Why? Because they are desperate.

“The mothers are at their NITS end!” The article says. “As head lice become more resistant than ever, parents reveal they’ve tried mayonnaise and even VODKA to banish the bugs.”

As the article mentions, head lice are becoming harder and harder to defeat. “Scientists have warned that lice are becoming increasingly resistant to products – leaving parents with fewer options than ever.”

That’s true. Traditional head lice treatment products are nearly completely ineffective as most lice are now resistant to the chemicals they use. The most recent research found that 98 percent of lice in 48 states in the U.S. are immune to pyrethroids, the class of insecticide used in traditional lice products.

Parents turn to the Internet for lice treatment advice and find home remedies for lice removal using everything from mayonnaise (which the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says is unproven) to kerosene. You can also find recipes for petroleum jelly, olive oil, and peanut butter.

Proven Lice Treatment at Home

Fortunately, there has been a wave of innovation in the world of lice treatment over the past dozen years. One company stands out—Lice Clinics of America. The company has brought to market a medical device developed by researchers at the University of Utah that uses carefully controlled warm air to dehydrate lice and eggs. Called AirAllé, the device has been cleared by the FDA and clinically proven to kill live lice and more than 99 percent of eggs in a single treatment that takes about an hour—guaranteed.

The AirAllé device is a dream come true for parents that have battled head lice for weeks, months, and even years. Their families can now be lice-free in an hour. It’s no surprise that Lice Clinics of America has quickly become the largest network of professional lice treatment centers in the world with nearly 300 clinics in 33 countries.

For those without access to a treatment center or prefer to treat head lice at home, the AirAllé team has developed a new generation of home lice treatment products: the Lice Remover Kit and the Lice Preventer Kit. Both are self-contained packages that include everything needed—a non-toxic gel, easy applicator, and comb—to remove or prevent lice faster, easier, and more effectively than traditional lice treatment products.

The Lice Remover Kit kills lice and eggs and is guaranteed when used as directed. The Lice Preventer Kit can be used as a kind of lice repellent with a once-a-week application for ongoing use, or for occasions when children are at a higher risk of head lice such as at sleepovers or camps.

The AirAllé medical device, the Lice Remover Kit, and the Lice Preventer Kit bring the latest science and medicine to the battle against head lice with safe, fast, effective products. So far with the AirAllé device and non-toxic gel, Lice Clinics of America has treated more than 750,000 cases of head lice with a 99 percent success rate.
