It seems like a great idea at first. You’ve read the list of aggressive sounding chemicals on the back of the box, and you think to yourself ‘this has to work’. Unfortunately bleaching your hair just isn’t enough to take care of a head lice infestation.
Using Bleach to Kill Head Lice
For years people have been using bleach to kill head lice. The problem is hair dyes are not enough to treat lice. Head lice can close off their bodies and stop breathing for several hours, protecting themselves from the effects of the bleach. It only takes 45 minutes to an hour to bleach hair depending on the length and thickness. Hair bleach contains strong chemicals like hydrogen peroxide, ammonium persulfate, and stearyl alcohol. Unfortunately, these chemicals still do not guarantee to kill all louse and will not penetrate the hard casings of nits.
How to Treat Head Lice
Instead of using DIY options to treat head lice and nits it is better to try professional treatment. Over the counter treatments and DIY treatments often don’t remove the entire infestation, like hair bleach and dye. At Lice Clinics of America our signature AirAlle treatment uses no harsh chemicals only heat to treat and kill all lice and nits. We use heat to dehydrate lice and leave hair lice free. Our treatment is backed by our lice free guarantee and performed by our trained technicians.
