// Do the head lice products actually work?

Posted in Chemically clearing lice, FAQ

“Do the head lice products actually work?”

Many parents think that they don’t and that is based on their own experiences with them. If you keep using them and find your child still has head lice, more often than not that means the product didn’t work. When head lice and eggs get under the product radar they hatch, the lice grow up and off goes the infestation again, building its momentum.

The understanding is that head lice have become increasingly immune to the products, much like bacteria is developing immunity to antibiotics. Head lice are constantly evolving to ensure their survival, and so have adapted and developed immunity to the many head lice products on the market.

“How long does it take to check for head lice per child?”

A professional head lice and nit check at a Hairforce salon takes 30 minutes.  The forensic check involves the hair being hoovered with a specialist lice hoover to see if there are any head lice present.  If there are then that appointment can usually be converted into a clear.

If no head lice are found, the head is then checked systematically to identify if there are any eggs or nits present.  Again if eggs are found then then the appointment can usually be converted into a clear.

Many Mum’s in particular are unsure if they have caught head lice from their children and a check can conclusively establish if they have or not.

// Why are conventional head lice treatments not effective?

Posted in FAQ, Hand Clearing Lice

“Why are conventional head lice treatments not effective?”

According to the direct experiences of the clients who use The Hairforce – Lice Assassins nit and head lice clearing service to shut down their infestations the conventional head lice products are not working.  Their own experiences of using the many brands of products available are testimony to their opinion.

Whilst using the products they can still find live head  lice and are plagued by the nits – the eggs – that are still hatching.  The head lice and nits themselves are surviving the conventional head lice products.

The process used at The Hairforce – Lice Assassins is not dependent upon a product and so the head lice cannot become immune to it.  Instead The Hairforce use a combination of hand clearing and clever technology to hoover out the head lice and dehydrate the eggs using just controlled heated air.

“Can you visit my home to do lice removal on all of my children?”

To access The Hairforce – Lice Assassins nit and head lice clearing service you can either book an appointment at one of our Hairforce Lounges or we can come to you for a Home Visit. We work to a 30 minute radius for a Home Visit.

However we can do further but that attracts an extra charge. The best thing is to call your nearest branch and see what they can accommodate. The prices for Home Visits are different as they have to factor in the travel time and travel expenses of the Lice Assassin who comes to your home.

// How much does your hair lice treatment cost?

Posted in FAQ, Non-chemical removal

“How much does your hair lice treatment cost?”

The cost of shutting down an average infestation at a Hairforce Lounge is £100 for the first one and a half hour clear out, and £50 for the second one hour second appointment. For that price we deliver a forensic process that uses a combination of clever technology and hand clearing to deliver a fast, safe and effective result.

We don’t use any head lice products, dimethicone or insecticides so the head lice cannot become immune to any part of our process. We see someone twice, 7 days apart. At that first appointment we hoover out all the head lice using a specialist lice hoover. We then use University developed controlled heated air technology to dehydrate the eggs. After that we apply an organic, enzyme free, leave in conditioner and nit comb and nit pick out all of the visible eggs. We see someone for a second appointment because when lice lay their eggs they lay invisible sacks of liquid, so there are eggs at the first appointment we cannot see. The controlled heated air will dehydrate the vast majority of these, but that technology has an over 95% effectiveness rate, so we are then interested in that potential under 5% -because we will be guaranteeing 100% shutdown.

We clear a lot of people who use a lot of product and haven’t cleared the infestation wasting a lot of money over many months to no avail. Our process gives them the certainty and the result they have been desparate to achieve.

Posted in The Hairforce in the news

The Hairforce Founder, Dee, was interviewed for this piece in The Guardian on what professionals who work with children think of the children. We care deeply about what children go through with head lice as it isn’t as easy to have head lice as many think. The people behind the products just don’t get that.
