“Man found dead in graveyard.”

“Woman, 58, dies after cow falls on her.”

“Nebraskan goat escapes from farm and ends up in Milwaukee.”

These are just some of the unbelievable and strange things we hear about on TV. But none of us ever think that something like this could ever happen to us.

People never think twice about experiencing something happening to them out of the blue, or witnessing something happening to people they love.

So when they contract head lice, they’re left baffled and confused, with a million unanswered questions.

“How did this happen?”

“I wash my hair every day!”

These are just some of the questions that pop into our mind when we’re dealing with something like head lice. And because we’ve never dealt with such a problem before, the first thing we do is look for answers online.

Olive oil, cucumber paste, tea tree extract, ketchup, garlic juice—these are just some of the many remedies we try. And when nothing works, we resort to over-the-counter products.

From shampoos to conditioners and “special oils,” there are many over-the-counter products available that are actually harmful for the health. This is because they contain harsh chemicals that are cancerous to humans.

One of the most common substance used in lice shampoos and conditioners is lindane. The FDA has reported that lindane has been found to be dangerous to human health, and the Environmental Protection Agency has declared it as carcinogenic.

Prevention is Better Than Cure

Why wait to deal with the problem? Why not take measurements to prevent it from the outset?

If you’re suspicious you’ve got head lice, it’s best to go for a lice screening. Head lice screenings can help you identify the problem before it gets out of hand.

This will also help you take the right measures to ensure that no critter is left behind, nestling in the strands of your hair.

It’s recommended that you go to a lice removal salon every 2 or 3 months for a screening. If you have head lice, you can get treated by a professional at a lice salon.

The Process

Removing head lice isn’t difficult. You just need the right treatment. Lice removal services use natural products to treat head lice.

The process is very simple. A professional will screen your head to see if you have lice. If you do, they will start off by using a thickening shampoo (made from natural ingredients) that will thicken the strands of your hair.

This will make it easier for the specialist to work with your hair. They will then use a special comb to get rid of the nits and lice from each strand.

The treatment takes only one session and during this time, you don’t have to worry about the products damaging your hair.

After you’ve been cleared of head lice, you will receive a certificate that will confirm that you’re lice-free.

In addition to this, lice removal services also offer in-home treatments. This means that if you don’t want to visit a salon, you can opt for treatments in the privacy of your home.

Lice Busters USA is one such service. Keeping the residents of Kendall safe from pesky critters, they use natural products to get the job done. You can visit their website to learn more or call 800-405-8201 to book an appointment.

I’m Nancy and no, I didn’t always look like I do in that picture on the right. My foray into health and fitness began as a brace-faced, 16 year-old who was too afraid to wear a two-piece at the beach because I felt my body paled in comparison to my much more toned friends.
