Depending on which option you choose lice treatment costs will vary. If you go it alone with the OTC products and are unsuccessful (see an example below) it could cost you around $872 over a months period and your family might still have head lice.

Lice Home Remedies work sometimes, but you’ll need to know all about lice and their life cycle and tools & techniques are required. Along with patience, time and money. You’ve probably already experienced this route and that’s what landed you here.

Facts of Lice Treatment

Treatment for head lice is recommended for persons diagnosed with an active infestation. All household members and other close contacts should be checked. Lotions and shampoos containing 1% permethrin (Nix) are an OTC option (but rarely kill all the bugs) They can be bought at the store without a prescription.

Head lice do not go away by themselves: treatment is necessary. Head lice do not survive long if they fall off a person and cannot feed. You don’t need to spend a lot of time or money on housecleaning activities. Read Myths about Lice. Prescription Medications are available through a doctors office. You can read more about them at the Center for Disease and Control Site or The Truth About Lice Pesticides.

If you are reading this review I’m sure it’s because someone you love has the dreaded lice. Stop washing and vacuuming and call Pals ASAP! Not only will they help you tackle the problem, they will educate you on what to do. My first experience with Pals was in 2014 and when lice returned in 2018 I didn’t panic, because I knew exactly what to do. I got the products that Pals makes, my Nit terminator comb and went to work without the big freakout meltdown. Pals not only taught me how to handle and not fear the dreaded word lice but gave me the confidence to feel like an expert that can handle it! The products are so worth it and way better than the toxic drug store stuff. They leave your hair clean, healthy, smelling good and best of all Nit and bug free!!! Thank you Pals for all that you have done for me and my family. Now call them!!! You won’t be sorry!!!
