"Preventative products 101",
Feedback from 50,000 + Clients to date!
Every parent or guardian is looking for the miracle in the bottle, you have just come through, or are right in the horrors of treating at home and want to prevent this happening again.
As is the case with ALL treatments, preventative products will direct you to combing for the REAL prevention.
It's really unfair as it's in the "Small Print".
They lure you in with the promise OF PROTECTION and somewhere else is the "used in conjunction..." or something similar.
Example of how the conversation goes with a client;
Client: "So tell me, how do I stop this from happening again what can I use or buy?"
Head lice Experts: "Sorry Nothing! if there was a product that prevented it we wouldn't be here"
We then explain the life cycle of the Louse in detail and outline a checking or screening routine. Then in the event (very likely) that lice or eggs are discovered we also outline a combing routine to clear.
Client: "But what about these..."
Head Lice Experts: "Sorry You're here"
Client: "But what about .......
Head Lice Experts: "Sorry but you are here"
And this goes on, The most common ones are based around oils, home remedies, professional remedies and of course the number one, Tea tree oil. All promise the sun, moon and stars, but wishful thinking blurs out the "will Help" in the product description or they are just unscrupulous and state "WILL PREVENT".
The individual on forums or chat sites that SWEARS BY such remedies, is basically on top of the job, They may use such products or remedies but they also check regularly using a comb of some sort!!, so is it the case that its the product or the regular checks?, And i'm sorry but it's just not the case that they never find any....
The problem in general is the fact that most don't check regularly and hit the problem head on (no pun intended) when it's too late and infestation is established.
Real prevention is based around understanding the Life Cycle of the Louse and putting in place a weekly screening schedule, that when implemented means you will be in a position to discover the presence of Lice or nits and confidently comb at intervals over a week or 10 day period to stop an infestation taking hold.
