Eliminate lice and nits in the hair
Every year, in September, it's the same story with the proliferation of head lice on our children's heads. The infestation of lice and nits is not due to a lack of hygiene on the part of our children. Promiscuity and community living are the two main factors that favor contamination. Lice do not pose a health hazard, but trigger unpleasant feelings of itching.
Itching and scratching of the head are the first signs of infestation. Lice are usually localized:
- At the edge of the hair;
- At the base of the neck;
- Behind the ears.
To choose a suitable treatment to eliminate lice , you have to understand the life cycle of lice and nits. First, the nits, which resemble oval eggs of gray or yellowish color, the size of a grain of sand, are attached to the hair near the scalp. Nits hatch after 7 to 10 days and give way to nymphs . The latter resemble adult lice, in smaller ones. Then the nymphs take their form of adult lice seven days after hatching, lay eggs again.
Choosing the right anti lice treatment in pharmacy
The treatment of lice has a dual purpose: it must both eliminate nits (lenticidal treatment) and lice (pediculicide treatment). For this, there is the chemical method with the antiparasitic treatments and the mechanical method by asphyxia.
Anti-parasitic lice treatments
The anti-parasitic anti-lice treatments found in anti-parasitic shampoos should not be used alone but with an additional anti-lice lotion.
Use: For example with Apasiyl lice lotion , apply the pest control lotion , and wash with warm water sheets, pillowcases, cups, clothes, soft toys, as well as any object that has been in contact with them. parasites.
- Cover the shoulders with a towel and protect the eyes for the duration of application.
- Apply on dry hair, not to mention the nape and back of the ears. massage the hair to soak the lotion without adding water.
- Leave to act for 1 hour in the open air. simply rinse the hair without extra shampoo and comb to remove dead lice and nits using the included comb.
Asphyxiant lice treatments
Asphyxiant lice treatment by their mechanical action is not toxic. The louse has small openings on the abdomen that allow it to perform its gaseous and watery exchanges with the outside (unlike our skin, its thick shell does not allow it without its orifices). Nits have the same type of orifices at its end, called micropyles.
Lotions and ointments exist to cover all the hair, line by line. According to the dermatologist, this is the least aggressive method. But beware, lice can survive eight hours without oxygen, to be effective, so keep the application all night.
Natural lice treatments
The coconut oil is a very fine vegetable oil happens to leak into the respiratory orifices of lice eventually suffocate. The louse is able to close its pores in the water for example and can survive 24h. On the other hand, the coconut oil closes the respiratory openings, so the lung dies quickly.
On the same principle as coconut oil, green clay will trap the louse and asphyxiate it and also soothe the itching of the scalp.
Aromatherapy is one of the most effective natural cures for lice.
- Tea Tree essential oil has repulsive active ingredients that remove and eliminate lice . It has molecules of the family monoterpene alcohols (such as linalool), which has this property pest control. The tea tree essential oil will therefore act by penetrating the cells of the louse, which will alter the cell membranes and intracellular components of the parasite.
- The essential oil of Lavandin Super contains Linalol as well as camphor (up to 5%) which is a natural parasiticide of the most powerful.
The anti-lice comb to finalize the treatment: Pass the wick comb by wick, preferably on wet hair. Clean it at each pass to remove lice and nits that clung to it
Your pharmacist's advice
As the saying goes, prevention is better than cure, the best way to fight against lice is to protect yourself!
For this, we recommend that you wash the hair with your children s hampoing natural lice once a week. The natural active ingredients will protect your children from a possible infestation. You can even complete the action with a conditioner anti-lice that will have the advantage of strengthening the protection and also detangle the hair, ideal for little girls or little boys with long hair!
In the event of a declared outbreak, immediately draw your natural anti-lice lotion . Once a week for 3 weeks, apply the lotion on the roots of your child to let it act before doing an anti-lice shampoo.
Also remember to treat your bed linen , with a lice spray specially designed to treat your environment . These little beasts do not just stay on our head, they love cozy places like our pillow or our couch to come to bask and lay their eggs. A louse can lay up to 10 nits a day, or 300 nits during his life of adult louse, imagine then the nest that can be in our cushions and our bed!
