What is the best way to get rid of head lice? If you're dealing with a head lice infestation - maybe your child got them from an outbreak at school, or you spent time volunteering abroad where head lice are a common issue - you want a prooduct that's going to be effective yet gentle. Head lice usually spread by sharing hats, combs and other hair accessories. Anyone can get head lice: it's not related to cleanliness.

Because lice can live for a period of time on bedding, stuffed animals, and clothing, you'll want to wash those items if possible. Some companies offering lice products have sprays you can also use on carpets, or solutions that can be added to the laundry for linens and other items that can't be washed and dried on high-heat settings.

Fairy Tales

FAIRY TALES Visit Site

Cost:

$22.74 for the Survival Kit (4 oz. mousse, terminator comb, repel spray)

$39.99 for the Emergency Kit (all of the above + repel shampoo)

Since 1999, Fairy Tales has been helping parents in the epic battle against head lice with an all-natural, pesticide free formula that includes both dealing with and preventing lice. The main ingredients in the Fairy Tales product line are:

  • Rosemary
  • Citronella
  • Peppermint
  • Lavender
  • Tea Tree
  • Geranium
  • Jojoba
  • Aloe
  • Chamomile

These ingredients are gentle enough to use daily, so if you want to use for several days in a row in conjunction with combing out, you can definitely do that. Customers really rave about the Terminator lice comb - especially parents who've had to do battle with lice more than once.

To apply the Lice Goodbye Mousse, the hair should first be damp and then the product massaged through from scalp to ends. Next, the hair should be combed thoroughly with the comb, and then the hair should sit for 10 minutes. You'll have to reapply and follow the instructions again. While the product instructions don't specifically say to reapply in 7-10 days, that's a safe bet with most lice products. (Note: we found different product instructions depending on which product page we looked at, so be sure to follow those that come with the product itself. Some instructions said to comb first, then let the product sit, while others said to apply-sit-comb. We also found some instructions that said to be sure to reapply at least one time, two days after the initial application.)

Fairy Tales also has the Rosemary Repel line of prevention products; use daily to discourage a re-infestation of lice, especially if your child's school, studio, or other daily environment continues to have a lice problem.

What we love about Fairy Tales are the results. From professional hairdressers to the average mom or dad, we found so many people who said that the products smell good, are gentle enough to use several days in a row, and that they've worked when brand-name, pesticide-based applications failed.

Where Fairy Tales could improve is with a strong customer return policy. We have no idea what their satisfaction guarantee is, if any - because they don't seem to put it on any of their product labels or advertising. But, given the overwhelmingly positive customer experience with their lice application and prevention products, we still think that Fairy Tales is an excellent choice for getting rid of head lice - and keeping them away.

What about dealing with the hair itself? Prepare yourself for a lengthy process. First, you'll need to select a lice product to apply to the hair; while some people may swear by home remedies like mayonnaise or olive oil, those approaches haven't been shown to be effective enough to guarantee that you won't still have nits that hatch later on. Commercially-produced lice products are a much more trustworthy approach. You'll apply the product thoroughly according to the package directions, using a lice comb to help remove live lice and nits - the white specks that at first glance look like dandruff but are firmly attached to the hair shaft.

Recheck the hair 8-12 hours after the product is applied: if you still see active lice, the product may not be working. If this happens, you should talk with your health care provider, who may recommend a different lice product.

If the product you applied does seem to be working - in other words, no live lice are spotted when you check later - you'll still want to comb through the hair with a nit comb every 2-3 days. Why? Those nits in the hair can sometimes hatch days later. For that reason, it's also typically recommended that you reapply the lice product 9-10 days after the first application, so that any newly-hatched lice (from nits that didn't get combed out) are killed before they can lay eggs in the hair. This helps prevent self-reinfestation.

With respect to prevention, some lice product lines have a spray that can be used to help discourage lice from taking up residence in the first place; especially for girls with long hair, many moms swear by pulling their kids' hair back in tight braids before school and spraying with these prevention products, which often use tea tree oil or other natural ingredients.

When deciding which lice product to use in your family, you might feel overwhelmed by the number of choices. Here are some helpful criteria to keep in mind as you narrow down your options to the right lice product for your situation:

  • Effectiveness. How well does the product work? Do other users report that it takes care of head lice in the recommended 1-2 applications?
  • Cost. Given that you will probably have to apply the product at least twice, how much will you spend to get enough of it to cover the members of your family? How does the price compare with other available products?
  • Guarantee. Can you get your money back if the lice product doesn't work for your family?
