The most common type of hair loss is based on hereditary factors. If you currently are experiencing any sort of hair loss, you probably know that there are a lot of different things that could make your hair loss kick into overdrive:
- Insufficient Hair Care
- Pulling on Hair
- Scalp Irritation or Infection
If you ever find yourself facing these issues for a prolonged period of time, the damage is almost irreparable. So what happens if you suffer from hair loss and you find yourself in the middle of a head lice infestation? Having head lice and then treating said lice with over-the-counter treatments can only make your situation worse. Luckily, our lice clinic in Racine offers safe, effective treatment options with no negative side effects like hair loss.
When you think of treating your head lice, most immediately think of the over-the-counter options. You can typically go pick them up and then treat your head lice from your own home all in one day, and while that might seem easy, it is anything but.
In reality, treating your own head lice is an excruciating long drawn out process that might not even work after all the effort you put into it. Not to mention all of the potential side effects from the product itself or from user error. These over-the-counter options are full of all sorts of different toxic chemicals with the goal of killing any living thing on your head, AKA head lice, but if you apply them incorrectly, leave it on for too long, or have an allergic reaction, you are risking negative side effects such as:
- Scalp Irritation
- Scalp Infection
- Hair Damage
- And more…
These are a lot of the exact causes that could make your hair loss worse. What fewer people seem to know about is that there is another option that is arguably far easier and less time-consuming and guarantees that your head lice problems will be no more.
