When you or your child is infected with lice, the understandable instinct is to scramble to get the hair cleared of lice as quickly as possible.
Rushing to the Internet to find a solution that you can one-day ship to your home to clear your head of nits and lice is to be expected. However, it is important to be careful in your choice of solution, and the source of it.
In fact, some lice professionals are not careful in choosing their lice-removal products, which is why you need to find one you can trust, such as Nit Wits.
Be on the Lookout for Unapproved Lice Devices
Ever since the FDA-approved AirAllé hit the market in the late 1990s, which made lice treatments experience a major boost in effectiveness: the heated-air device managed to kill a stellar 99.2% of nits.
You would think that with a success rate like that, such a product would effectively destroy all the competition. However, over the years competition indeed has sprung up.
Though competition can be healthy, that is not the case when the competition creates lice-removal products that are not approved by the FDA, and therefore may be harmful.
We are not just talking about lice removal devices that you might find on Amazon during your rush to find treatment. Certain lice professionals cut corners and use low-cost lice removal devices that are either unapproved by the FDA or, if approved, are not approved for humans.
Yes, some professionals try to get away with using lice-removal devices designed for pets when treating their human customers.
Others use devices that are usually found in salons, using hair-beautifying products for the wrong ends.
Approved Lice-Removal Devices
The reason you ought to make sure a lice treatment provider is using FDA-approved devices is because your health and safety are at risk.
No matter the effectiveness of these methods (you can be sure that they are less effective than legitimate lice-removal products), the key worry is whether they will cause any damage to your hair or head in the usage.
Misusing products can have harmful consequences, which is why Nit Wits only uses devices that are made for the express purpose of removing nits (lice eggs).
A lice removal device is by definition a medical device, which is why this issue ought to be taken seriously.
