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.

Starting at $24.95 for up to 3 people + comb

Head Hunters bills themselves as the "lice removal specialists" - largely because their lice product line is developed in-house at their facilities in Georgia. All of their products have been extensively tested on their clients, resulting in a salon-grade professional product line for both dealing with and preventing head lice.

The primary lice product offered by Head Hunters is WipeOut: a conditioner-based product that kills lice through a physical approach rather than chemical. What does this mean? WipeOut forces lice to stop holding their breath, oddly enough, and essentially drowns them by coating them with the conditioner. For this reason, WipeOut is especially useful for resistant strains of head lice, because they don't use chemicals or pesticides common to many store-bought products.

To apply WipeOut, saturate the entire head of hair from roots to ends, focusing most closely on the 1-2 inches of hair from the scalp outward. Massage into the scalp and let the product sit for 20 minutes. After the time elapses, you can shampoo and condition the hair as usual if you prefer; this can help make it easier to detangle. Use the Head Hunters Pro Lice comb, which is included with every kit they sell, to comb through the hair in 1-inch sections. They recommend that you wipe the comb onto a white paper towel, to see the lice and nits you're removing. If you need more visual directions, you'll find very helpful step-by-step instructions on the Head Hunters site.

While Head Hunters doesn't specifically say that you have to reapply with WipeOut after the first go-around, the product is gentle enough to use regularly as a conditioner - so apply as often as you need to feel secure that the lice infestation has been conquered. They do recommend that you use the lice comb every other day until no more evidence of lice is spotted.

For head lice prevention, check out Head Hunters Lemon Heads product line. This consists of a shampoo, conditioner, and spray that have been proven to repel the transfer of adult lice, while repairing the hair and scalp that may have been damaged by a previous infestation. The lemon essence of all three products masks the scent left behind by head lice - a scent that tells other lice "this head is a good host!" (Gross, we know.) Also included in the formula are geraniol, rosemary, eucalyptus and mint, which are designed to provide lasting protection over the course of 24 hours.

Unfortunately, Head Hunters doesn't offer a customer satisfaction guarantee. You can return unused items within 30 days, but if you try their lice product and it doesn't work for you - or worse, it provokes a rash or some other unpleasant reaction - you'll be stuck with it. That's definitely not as customer-friendly as most of Head Hunters' competitors.

Without a good return policy, you might be wondering why Head Hunters still managed to earn a 4-star rating. The reason? Their extraordinary success stories. We found customers who said that they had spent thousands of dollars on other products, trying but failing to get rid of their family's lice infestation - but with one round of Head Hunters' lice products, they were louse-and-nit-free extremely quickly. Many customers particularly love the sweet, softly fruity smell of the WipeOut conditioner, and they rave about the effectiveness of the lice comb.

Even though Head Hunters can't compete when it comes to their customer satisfaction policy (or lack thereof), their lice application and prevention products are top-notch. We definitely recommend that you consider them if you're dealing with a lice infestation.

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?
