Frequently Asked Questions About the Best Head Lice Treatment and Head Lice Symptoms
While an appointment with one of our specialists is not required, a successful head lice treatment begins with removing all of the head lice and nits. The fastest and most effective way to resolve an infestation is to make an appointment with one of our trained lice removal professionals.
Why should I avoid using over the counter solutions found at most pharmacies?
All lice killing products are pesticides and we believe exposing your family to pesticides is an unnecessary risk. Also, many strains of head lice have become resistant these products.
At Lice Treatment Solutions of Clear Lake we use a combined approach – the application of safe/nontoxic products to prepare the scalp as well as combing the hair strand by strand to ensure a complete head lice treatment is administered.
Do I have to use your professional head lice treatment or can I purchase your products and use them myself?
We make our products available to our customers either online or at our retail location.

How long does a typical head lice treatment take?
Treatment times can vary and are largely dependent on the length of the hair being treated and the severity of the lice. You can expect a treatment of long hair to take approximately 1- 1 1/2 hours.
A short follow-up visit will be scheduled 2 to 10 days after treatment to verify that you and your family are “nit free.”
What happens if I use your professional service and the treatment and head lice return?
At Lice Treatment Solutions of Clear Lake we offer a 30-day guarantee. If we find head lice during your follow-up visit we will re-treat you and at no additional cost to you.
If one person in my family becomes infested should my entire family be treated?
Head lice are spread easily, but just because an infestation of one does not mean that the entire family has become infested. Early detection is essential to breaking the cycle so we recommend that each member get checked.
Do I need to treat my home if someone in my family has head lice?
Without a human host, head lice and their eggs usually die within days so you do not have to worry about getting all of the nits and lice from every crevice of the house. Simply launder everything that has come in close contact (bedding, towels, hats, etc.) and vacuum where an infested person may sit or lay (sofas, carpets, car seats, etc.).
How does your 30-day guarantee work?
After our professionals treat your hair, we will work with you to schedule a required follow-up appointment within the week. If we find any signs of lice or nits, we will work with you to schedule a convenient time remove them. If necessary, we will schedule an additional appointment. All scheduled follow-up appointments must be attended for the guarantee to be valid.
