FAQ

WHAT IS LICE HELP SOLUTION?

LICE HELP SOLUTION is a proprietary mixture of natural oils that kill live lice, and dissolve the nits/eggs. It is created by infusing different botanical oils together at various temperatures to create a safe formula for humans but a deadly force for head lice and nits.

While it is made of natural and botanical oils, it does not contain botanical oils that are known to be a hazard for humans. We do not have Tea Tree Oil in it due to contraindications for small children and pregnant women.


 

NO NIT-PICKING? REALLY? WHY DON'T I HAVE TO NIT-PICK WITH YOUR PRODUCT?

Nits are the huge issue for everyone. You do not have to nit-pick with our product and here is why: The formula does a couple of things for redundancy to kill the nits...in other words, if one way doesn't kill them, the other way will.

Well, let's first address the issue on how the product works against nits: It works by a triple-redundancy method. First it creates an environment that is intolerable for lice (No, it doesn't smother them). Since lice ONLY live on human and they can ONLY eat human blood and they can ONLY have an environment with sustained average temperatures, they are very vulnerable. So, first we cause them to have an environment that they can not live on..(you could do that without our product with substances like gasoline, diesel, pesticides, and a host of other items will kill them), the problem then is that we want to be safe for even little infants or pregnant women. So much for the gasoline, diesel, and pesticides! We wanted to create a product safe for the littlest infants yet aggressive enough to kill lice and nits. Our solution creates a terribly hostile environment for lice but it is safe for everyone (barring allergies because it does have botanical oils). Imagine if you will that our air filled up with a toxic chemical, where would we go? What would we do? If we couldn't move to another planet, we would just die off. That is what happens to lice. As soon as the solution is on the scalp it causes the first system to go down. In most animals, the first system to stop is the reproductive system, so that is the first thing that the solution causes a stress to the bugs and they stop reproducing immediately. They stop producing nits. The second system to go down is digestive. they stop eating the blood of your loved one. But, that is only the first way our formula works.

The second way is that we have a soybean oil mixture that eats at the glue that holds the nits to the hair shaft. This way the nits fall off. Nits are non-viable if they fall off. They need the warmth of the head to incubate them. Even nits that are an inch away from the scalp will not survive.

A third way is that a combination of oils that we have in the mixture actually eats at the nit shell. Once the nit shell is compromised, the nit is as good as dead. They dry and flake away.

Since we ask you to do the treatment more than once (which is why we provide so much of the Fully Mixed Solution solution) is that if a nit happens to make it through that, and hatches, as soon as it hatches in will be in an environment that will kill it. The other natural botanical oils in our solution kill live lice so that if one nit were able to survive the 1st two, and hatch, it would kill the now live lice! It has the triple redundancy so that it will kill nits AND live lice. We do this before it reaches reproductive maturity.

Triple-redundancy. Without nit-picking!


 

HOW LONG HAS THIS PRODUCT BEEN AROUND?

We developed this in 1996 by doing research with Purdue University in the heart of Indiana's farm country. They specialize in Agriculture and insect studies are vitally important to farmers. Especially pests. Since they study agricultural insects they have broadened their research into a world renowned Entomology(insects) research school that has gone beyond just agricultural entomology.

We have helped thousands and thousands of people rid themselves of head lice and nits. We have 23+ years of experience with people and have never had to refund money due to product failure. We have cured lice in every case over the 11 years. Every single case.


 

HOW DOES IT WORK? DOES IT SMOTHER LICE?

No, it does not smother lice. We have found a mixture of natural botanical oils, which if combined and separated at the right temperatures, will kill lice and the nits. Unfortunately, it is too strong to put directly on the scalp. So we dilute the solution in a base oil. It has NOTHING TO DO WITH SMOTHERING. If you have used Olive Oil, Mineral Oil or other oil treatments, you already know, THEY DON'T WORK! Our product works in a complex way by both method and solution. There simply is no way lice or their offspring can survive! NO WAY! It has nothing to do with suffocation (smothering) of lice.


 

WHAT ARE THE INGREDIENTS?

We have a proprietary way of mixing the oils. This we discovered through trial and error. The ingredients alone are ineffective without proper emulsification and fusion methods. We use varying temperatures on certain oils to cause a reaction that creates the final head lice solution. The ingredients are listed on the bottle and are as follows:

COMMON NAME ~ OFFICIAL BOTANICAL NAME
Jojoba Oil ~ Simmondsia chinensis
Lavender Oil ~ Lavandula Officinalis
Orange Blossom Oil ~ Orange Blossom Oil
Peppermint Oil ~ Mentha Piperita
Lemongrass Oil ~ Cymbopogon citratus
Rosemary Oil ~ Rosmarinum Officinalis
Soybean Oil ~ Soy Methyl Esters
Mineral Oil ~ Mineral Oil/White Oil


 

WHAT IS THE EXPIRATION DATE OF THE SOLUTION?

Our solution has a 12 year shelf life. Just shake it up and pour. Many people order preemptively as a head lice first aid kit.


 

WHY DOESN'T MY DOCTOR KNOW ABOUT YOUR PRODUCT?

We are just a small family business, not a huge multi-billion dollar pharmaceutical company. We are trying to educate school nurses about this treatment but we do not have the big advertising dollars like drug companies and pharmaceuticals have. Most doctors do not have the time to individually test new products and watch for possible side effects. They depend on the medical industry and government agencies, such as the FDA, EPA and all kinds of other alphabets to provide them with scientific studies and approve or disapprove what should be prescribed. For over 20 years, our product has been successfully helping families rid themselves of lice problems. Word of mouth from satisfied customers and desperate parents searching the internet for better solutions are how we've managed to get the word out.


 

HOW DO I KNOW IT IS GOING TO WORK?

It is difficult for small businesses such as ours to prove our product unless you try it. We have the guarantee that if used correctly, this product will work. We have hundreds of letters and e-mails of people calling us "lifesavers", "saints", and "blessed". Usually, people finally come to us after they have spent a hundred dollars or more on other products or their doctors tell them they can’t apply any more Lindane because it’s too soon from the last application. They are desperate to try anything that will work. They order from us out of desperation and then write saying how they wished they had ordered from us first. Read some of the comments. They are from real customers who tried our product. The way it is made and applied: It has no choice but to work.


 

HOW MUCH IS IN A CONTAINER?

Head Lice Cure comes in a kit with 4 - 16oz. containers of the Lice Help Fully Mixed Solution. This may seem like a lot of product but we designed it for the longest hair and/or some left over in case of re-infestation.


 

HOW MUCH DOES YOUR "KIT" WEIGH?

4 pounds. Each kit has half a gallon of Head Lice Cure.


 

HOW MANY PEOPLE PER APPLICATION?

One kit is designed for 1 person with very long hair. If you have 2 people with short hair (above the shoulder) you can probably use 1 kit on both people.


 

WILL IT DAMAGE MY CHILD'S HAIR IN ANY WAY?

No. Everyone's chemistry is different so I say that with a little caution. The solution is good for the hair but it may cause dry scalp in some people.


 

WHY DON'T I HAVE TO NIT-PICK WITH YOUR PRODUCT?

This formula makes an intolerable environment for lice. The lice attach eggs (nits) to the hair follicle with a super glue that is VERY hard to remove. Picking them is a horrible experience as you have to check every strand of hair and then try to pull them off with tweezers. Our formula waits for lice to hatch and creates an environment uninhabitable. Eventually, you wind up brushing them out of your hair. If it makes you feel better to pick them all out, then go ahead but it is neither necessary nor recommended with this treatment.


 

ARE LICE HARMFUL?

No, actually they are not. They are annoying, they itch, they eat blood like a mosquito, defecate on your scalp, and they are disgusting. But they are not harmful.


 

DOES IT WORK ON ADULTS?

Yes. It works great on adults or children. We have had many people use it on infants also but I advise that you contact your pediatrician before starting the treatment on infants.


 

CAN I GET RID OF LICE BY A PERMANENT OR HAIR COLOR?

No. You can't get rid of them by permanents or by dying the hair. We tried that too.

You would think that since the chemicals are so harsh in those products, you could just dye your hair the same color and it will kill the lice and nits. It does not kill them! We tried both a perm and dying our daughters hair and it slowed them down but they were back in full force within a month.


 

CAN I GET RID OF LICE BY CUTTING OFF ALL THE HAIR?

Yes. As a matter of fact, this is the cheapest and most easily recommended treatment. The problem is that you have to cut the hair so that no more than 1 inch shows. Some boys are fine with that but most girls are not.


 

WILL IT AFFECT ANY DIES OR PERMANENTS?

No, although discoloration can happen in clothes with the solution, it does not affect hair colors or perms. Having said that, anytime you wash your hair frequently or with strong shampoos, you run the risk of it affecting your hair.


 

IS IT EASY TO USE?

Actually, the instructions are easy:

Saturate hair
leave on overnight (or for 6 hours)
wash out in morning then skip a night

Easy! But - we detail every single move so that there are as few questions as needed. The rest of the page has various information about lice and nits and ideas to make the process easier, our phone number, email address, and actually how it goes about killing lice AND nits.
