Why is it better to utilize oil than conditioner when removing lice and eggs? Oil is more viscuous and will catch the first stage nymphs - the very small hatchlings that often survive lice shampoos and ineffective combing. Not all oils work as effectively as others. We use oils proven to neutralize lice and their eggs. Plus, your hair will feel soft and silky afterwards. Save your sanity! Call or text Nit Hunters Ottawa Lice Removal 613-212-0072
At Nit Hunters Ottawa Lice Removal, we come across a lot of people who have used essential oils to get rid of their family’s lice infestations without success. This is probably happening for one of two reasons:
1) you need to use more of the essential oil and it needs to be applied and dispersed properly in the hair
2) essential oils vapours evaporate up into the air and are less active - use a heavy duty shower cap over the hair to keep the vapours over the hair

Dandruff can resemble lice eggs to the untrained eye. It can even have similar symptoms to head lice (itchiness, red bumps). When in doubt, check it out! Save your sanity, call or text Nit Hunters Ottawa Lice Removal 613-213-0072
This is why when you are looking for bugs or eggs in your child’s hair you don’t see anything. Head lice can move like crabs in the hair - forwards, backwards, sideways, diagonal - and they avoid movement and bright light. So it’s a bit like hide and seek until you get an explosion of bugs and eggs and you see them everywhere (usually around the 4 week mark). Eggs measure 0.8 mm in length and 0.3 mm in width - not quite microscopic but small indeed. Put your mind to rest, when in doubt check it out!

A lot of people incorrectly believe lice will be all over their couch or cushions once one of their children has head lice. This may be true for other human parasites but not really for head lice. They much prefer staying put on your scalp. They’ll migrate to another scalp though because they can smell ‘new territory’! Get the facts, call or text Nit Hunters Ottawa Lice Removal ☺️

See those big dark adult lice? Those are all females - they can lay up to 10 eggs a day! In an infestation there are more females than males. This is because you only need just one male bug - the “stud” - to fertilize the females. The more females who lay eggs the faster the colony can grow and spread to more heads!
