Planning a Family Trip

Planning a family trip is a very difficult task for the average busy family but this blog will help you get through it all! When you begin to research information to plan the perfect trip it can be an information overload. It is also very easy to talk yourself out of vacationing because it’s not the right time, but the truth is, there is never a perfect time. Traveling with kiddos can throw you an extra task from deciding on nap times, change in routine, feeding times to entertainment.

In the end, you will never regret a trip because of how much closer it will bring your family. The memories will be priceless because you will grow as a family and learn to be kind and patient through new situations and surroundings.

Set Goals

Are you looking to do something relaxing just to escape or to have a new cultural experience with your kids? When traveling with your children it will be nothing like traveling as couple, so you must plan accordingly. You should write out a list of ideas that can guarantee your family trip to be a success. Also, you should decide what things you are willing to sacrifice in order to make things run smooth and easy.

Decide Where to Go

This is the most difficult task because you want to make sure that it is memorable and kid-friendly. Pintrest is extremely helpful and visual leading to great advice from other parents just like you!

Once you have weighed out your options and have ideas in mind, there are a few other things to factor in. Travel costs, weather, kid-friendliness and also what your other family members would want can help you narrow down your final choice.

START SAVING

Unfortunately traveling is not free, so having a savings plan in place is a must. Take a moment to think about how much you would feel comfortable spending. You can save weekly, monthly and make sure what you are putting to the side is practical.

Every penny adds up and will turn your dreams of traveling into a reality!

Head Lice is Contagious

Head Lice is Contagious

Head lice is contagious and most commonly spread by direct head-to-head contact. Much less frequently they can be spread by sharing belongings or clothing where the lice have crawled and made their way to your head. Catching lice from a louse that has fallen onto a carpet is unlikely.

Head lice survive up to 48 hours if they fall off a person’s head and cannot feed properly. Nits will be unable to hatch and will die if they are not kept at the same temperature that is on the scalp. Lice eggs (nits) are not contagious but the bugs are where it all begins. It is very necessary to take the proper steps to avoid an unwanted lice infestation from making its way to your head.

How to Avoid Catching Lice

You can prevent catching an unwanted head lice infestation by avoiding head to head contact during activities at home, school, sports, sleep overs, camp or on the playground. Do not share hair ribbons, combs, brushes and avoid sharing head-ware. You can bring your own pillow and blanket to sleepovers as well as checking your hair for a bug before and after with a Terminator lice comb. It is also very preventative to avoid laying on beds, pillows, stuffed animals or couches that have recently been in contact with a person who is infested.

The Origin of Head Lice

The Origin of Head lice

The Origin of Head Lice – Where do lice come from? This is one of the most asked questions and mysteries for most people. There are not any confirmed fossils of lice so there is little proof as to where they originated.  There have been many strains of head lice over history but the strain believed to have originated in North America was the one to migrate worldwide.

Head lice are little parasites that feed on blood and live in hair. They lay their eggs (nits) on individual strands of hair. Once the eggs hatch, the nymphs have three growth spurts until they finally reach adulthood. Adults can reproduce and must eat four to five times a day in order to survive.    

Lice Facts

Head lice do not have the capabilities of flying, swimming or jumping, and they only feed on human’s scalps. This also means that there is a limited amount of ways that lice can be transmitted. The very most common way to transmit a head lice infestation is from head to head contact. Head lice infrequently try to travel by means of clothing, and they must reach hair within 48 hours or they will starve and die.

How To Treat Head Lice Efficiently

“Super Lice” have proven to have a strong resistance to pesticides and many pesticide-based lice products are no longer achieving their high efficacy rates. Our FDA-cleared Air Alle device kills all stages of lice and eggs through dehydration. This is the most incredible alternative to treating head lice with pesticides, suffocation products, lice combs or herbal remedies. The specific combination of the right temperature, time, technique and time makes our treatment the easiest solution. We are here to educate you on how to prevent a future infestation and also put an end to the lice stigmas out there. Our staff is fully equipped with all it takes to assure you have a five star experience and nothing less.

Nits, eggs, louse – what’s the difference?

Nits, eggs, louse – what’s the difference? This Is a question we often hear from our customers. They are all different stages of head lice. We want to take the opportunity to clarify them:

What are nits?

Nits are the small eggs produced by the live louse bugs that usually look like small brown or tan dots before they hatch. We can also call nits, eggs or lice eggs. Usually lice lay their eggs close to the scalp where the live lice can be close to their food source once they hatch. Lice feed on human blood by using tiny claws to puncture the skin on the scalp.

Lice on Hair

Eggs (nits) or dandruff?

Nits look very similar to dandruff, however, they cannot be removed by brushing or shaking them off. The lice eggs are seemly glued to the hair follicle, only on one side to it. Lice eggs tend to hatch 7-10 days after they are laid and the shell remain on the hair looking white or clear. The adult lice are no bigger than a sesame seed and the nymphs are usually a bit smaller and grow to be adult lice in about 10 days.

What is a louse?

Louse is the singular word for lice. Louse can be feminine or masculine and they are commonly referred as “bugs”. A female louse mates once in her life and lays eggs throughout her life span (30-days).

Let’s remove lice, louse, nits and eggs!

The Truth About Lice Eggs

The Truth About Lice Eggs

The truth about lice eggs may come as a shock to most parents out there,
because although the eggs can be a nuisance to get rid of, they are completely
harmless while in the incubation stage. You cannot catch a lice egg from
someone, but you can catch a bug once they hatch and then the cycle continues.
Lice eggs are hard to see, but this blog will help you understand how to deal
with the eggs head on, things that work and the truth about lice eggs altogether.

Lice Egg Incubation and Hatching Period

A female louse will lay its eggs about a half an inch from the scalp where it is warm and
humid for the eggs to properly incubate for 7-10 days. If the eggs are removed or
extracted, they will die very shortly after. Eggs will only hatch one time with only
one nymph emerging from that single egg.
The glue that secures the egg may remain in your hair for several months if they
are not extracted. Removing eggs can seem like the most tedious task because
although most eggs are visible, there are some which are microscopic and not
fully developed.

How To Spot Lice Eggs

Lice eggs (often referred to as nits) look like tiny tan or brown teardrop shaped
dots before they hatch. They often get confused for dandruff or hair product
eminence, but the eggs are only launched to one side of the hair strand. To the
touch they will have a grain of sand like feeling and will not slide off easily if your
try to remove them with our fingers.

The easiest way to tell if you have a head lice infestation is to follow these steps:
1.) Wet your hair with a spray bottle
2.) Fully detangle by adding a bit of conditioner and brushing
3.) Gather a few sheets of paper towels to have on hand
4.) Glide your lice comb along the scalp starting at your hair line from one ear, and
comb all the way to the back of the head not missing the baby hairs.
5.) Wipe it onto the paper towel where you will clearly be able to see the brown or
tan teardrop shaped eggs and bugs through the conditioner.
6.) Repeat these steps by overlapping your last row by half until you make your
way to the other side of your head ( your other ear) wiping each row on your paper
towel until you find proof you are infested.

Head Lice Education

Head Lice Education
Head lice education is a must In the wonderful universe of parenting. They are small and do not carry diseases but they make the best of us feel cringy and itchy, causing big problems. Talking about lice may be uncomfortable, but it does not have to be that way because if you gather as much information as possible, it will minimize your troubles and stress.

Remain Calm
The number one thing you can do for your little one suffering from lice, and yourself, is to remain calm. Keep your panic to a minimal and reassure them that this is 100% normal, that treating the lice is easy and has nothing to do with their level of cleanliness. It helps for them to also to know this is a very common problem and that lice, in fact, prefer clean hair!

Some of the most popular ways to catch head lice is through group activities like: slumber parties, family gatherings, locker rooms, sharing brushes, sharing hats, helmets, selfies, bunking heads or even whispering to one another!

 

How to check for Lice
Since we are talking about lice, it’s only fair to touch on one of the most important parts which is checking for lice! You can also check out our blog on how to check for head lice

1. Part the hair in a straight line down the middle of the head and look for nits ( lice eggs), which will appear to look like a teardrop shape with a sandy consistency. There is a bit of a pearl like shine to them and they will always be launched to only one side of the hair strand. It is always easy to mistake dandruff for nits, but the way you can tell the difference as the lice eggs do NOT remove easily.
