Lice Cap Info

Head lice are wingless insects that spend their entire lives on the human scalp and feeding exclusively on human blood.

Some people also refer to them as Nits or Cooties.

Adult length between 0.25 – 0.3 cm so very tiny and often hard to see especially in light coloured hair.

A thick cap immersed with all essential oils designed to eliminate head lice. The lice cap looks and feels like a regular shower cap. The Lice cap is different to other mainstream head lice products as it does not contain the neurotoxins and pesticides that are often used to kill head lice. Permethrin is a chemical used in conventional lice treatment is actually a common garden pesticide. Who would want that on their head? Instead, the Lice cap contains natural ingredients, such as tea tree oil, eucalyptus oil, aloe vera and lavender oil.

Does it work?Yes, it really does. We have achieved a 99.9% success rate.How does it work?The essential oil compounds pass through the cuticle of the louse and up to their trachea causing death by suffocation. The reality is there is no 'nice'way to rid your hair of lice, and just two ways to get rid of them: using chemicals that can harm you, your hair and your scalp OR the Lice Cap way, that uses natural ingredients to kill the lice with no lasting impact on you or your hair.

If your child has lice, you'll notice small, brown insects the size of sesame seeds moving around or that look like they're cemented on to individual hairs.

 STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS:Place the cap over your hair, making sure you have covered all of your hair and scalp down to the nape of your neck and the back of your ears.Massage your head through the cap, working the oil through the strands of hair and down to the scalp. Important: Spend at least 2 minutes on this, ensuring that all the hair is coated with the oils.Leave in place for 10 minutes without touching or moving the lice cap.After the 10 minute wait time is up, repeat step 2 and 3 a further 3 times. In total you should allow 40 minutes of resting time for the natural oils to work down to the scalp.Use the lice comb provided to methodically work through your hair to remove the dead lice and their eggs. Take your time with this as it is essential that you remove all the eggs that you can see. Repeat this step daily for the next 3 days.

After a further 2 weeks it is recommended to repeat the whole process again with a second lice cap to ensure that no lice have survived. It is unlikely that you will feel the need to repeat the process but you should do it anyway.
