But now you can kill lice and all of their eggs in a single treatment. The technology was developed at the University of Utah and commercialized by the company Larada Sciences. It is called Air Alle.
In the past, special shampoos were used to kill the lice, but over the years the lice have developed a resistance to the shampoos.
Air Alle uses a stream of warm air, similar to a hair dryer, to dehydrate the lice and the eggs in the hair. After the 30 minute treatment, a professional comb is used to get rid of all the debris.
Right now, Air Alle is only used in provider's offices. If you'd like more information, please visit: Utah Hair Maidens.
