What about olive oil, mayonnaise, Cetaphil or other homeopathic head lice removal remedies? How about the heated air devices?

While these liquid-based products can work if they are meticulously applied and the labor-intensive process of manual nit removal is also employed, these remedies are extremely messy and the use of them is quite time-consuming. They also require many re-applications over an up to three-week timeframe.

In terms of the heated air machines, although they have proven effective in small control group testing/lab studies, they are not recommended for use on young children, there have been instances where burning has occurred and, in reality, there is no need for additional interventions as there is NO substitute for the completely effective strand by strand comprehensive method of lice/nit removal utilized by Elimilice technicians. Additionally, many schools continue to have a “no nit” policy which precludes children from attendance at school with any evidence of head lice. The heated air machines DO NOT remove evidence of head lice so nit picking still must be performed.
