Fairy LiceMother Frequently Asked Questions
What are head lice?
Head lice are tiny insects that live on the scalp.
They lay eggs called nits, which stick to hair very close to the scalp.
How do you get head lice?
- By contact with an already infested person. Contact is common during play at school and at home (slumber parties, sports activities, at camp, on a playground).
- By wearing infested clothing, such as hats, scarves, coats, sports uniforms, or hair ribbons.
- By using infested combs, brushes, or towels.
- By lying on a bed, couch, pillow, carpet, or stuffed animal that has recently been in contact with an infested person.
Can't I just go to the drugstore and buy a lice removal product?
The products sold in drugstores or prescribed by doctors are called Pediculicide (Nix, Rid, Clear, etc). Pediculicides are the insecticidal shampoos and creme rinses used to treat head lice. These products contain pesticides.
Problems with Pediculicides
For several years the media, mothers, school nurses, and entomologists have been reporting that many head louse populations have become resistant to the chemicals used to treat them. Fairy LiceMothers will ease your mind and help you get rid of this itchy problem without the use of any chemicals.
Louse Life Cycle
Nits are head lice eggs. They are cemented at the base of the hair shaft nearest the scalp. Nits take about 1 week to hatch (range 6 to 9 days)
The egg hatches to release a nymph. Nymphs mature after three molts and become adults about 7 days after hatching.
Adult lice can live up to 30 days on a person's head. A maximum of 6 to 10 nits are laid each day by each female.
Facts of Lice
- Lice like clean, healthy heads the best
- Lice are nearly as common as the common cold
- Pets do not transmit head lice to humans or vice versa.
- Anyone can get Lice
