Head Lice Treatment Can Be Simple

Did you know that the start of the school year could be a prime time for head lice infestations? Head lice are transferred by direct head-to-head contact, which means that kids swapping hats, sharing hairbrushes, as well as the closeness of kids at school or during play time all can lead to the quick spreading of head lice. With all the other stresses of heading back to school, don’t let head lice be added to your list. We’ve put together a 3-stage method for head lice treatment as well as recommended products to help you deal with this itchy problem.

1. KILL THEM FIRST

MOOV Head Lice Solution is an easy to use, quick and pleasant solution with clinical studies showing that MOOV Head Lice Solution is twice as effective as common chemical based alternatives.1 Both MOOV Head Lice Solution and MOOV Head Lice Shampoo provide easy and reliable treatments to your head lice woes. Be sure to always read the label and follow the directions for use.

The most important thing to remember while treating head lice is to use the treatment according to the packaging instructions and reapply when indicated. The key to eradicating head lice from the hair is to break their life cycle, which is about 33-35 days. While a single treatment may kill the live lice, an egg can hatch six to ten days after being laid. This means that infestations can be an ongoing problem if the lice life cycle is not broken.

2. REMOVE THEM NEXT

MOOV Head Lice Combing Conditioner includes a head lice comb and helps you detect and remove the presence of lice and eggs. After the use of a head lice treatment product, following it up with a head lice conditioner and comb helps to remove both head lice and eggs. This ensures that as many critters are removed from the head as possible. If you have young children at school, it’s also not a bad idea to do head checks with a conditioner and comb to try and catch an infestation early.

 3. DEFEND AGAINST THEM

If you’re sick of dealing with head lice, one way to help avoid their reappearance is to defend using a head lice defence spray. MOOV Head Lice Defence Spray acts as a guard against wandering head lice for up to 8 hours. Applied like a leave in conditioner, the formula of the spray makes the hair unpleasant to head lice, while conditioning the hair. This defence spray is a great product for your peace of mind on a daily basis.

Now go forth and conquer against the head lice. With MOOV, treating head lice doesn’t have to be a stress-inducing nightmare.
