// Can You Use Heat to Kill Nits?

We use a very specialist machine to dehydrate the nits – the eggs – with very controlled heated air. This machine is cooler than a hairdryer. If you used a hairdryer to do what we do you will burn the scalp. Many people ask about hair straighteners – can you kill the lice and eggs with them? The problem is that the head lice are on the scalp and the fresh eggs are at the root so either way you will burn the scalp if you use them.
