Kill Nits With Heat. Wait…What?


Oh where to start…


Once in a while we get asked if we provide the infamous “heat treatment”. This is a service provided by a particular lice removal company. I’m here to happily explain this service and to provide some insight into this “treatment”.


So what is this heat treatment? I’m so glad you asked. This is a service (pushed very hard by the way) by a certain company that states their amazing device will dry out nits using hot air blown from this device. Thus getting rid of lice and reducing the need for combing. They also state their device is “FDA approved” and uses a “microprocessor” to distribute heat. 


Our fearless leader and owner of Lice Support started her lice journey opening one of these previously mentioned locations that use this device. She’s also “certified” on the operation of this device so she has first hand experience using it. I’m going to debunk this device as a money grabbing gimmick. Let’s get started!

Most important part of a lice treatment is the combing out

This device is nothing more than a hair dryer. Who wants lice being blown around! It’s not some advanced alien technology made to revolutionize the lice removal industry which is how they push it. It obviously can’t be any hotter than a hair dryer otherwise it would burn your head. Even the most basic hair dryers contain circuit boards inside them.

The most important part of a lice treatment is the combing out process. Any lice professional will tell you this. The device can’t be used alone without the following comb out. Using this device is a "shortcut" for them. Their lice technicians rely too heavily on the device which is why they have an abundance of customers going back a second time because they still have lice. 

But it's “FDA approved”. Basically any product can be FDA approved. It’s not a difficult process. It’s just a technical sounding selling point. It doesn't mean its effective for anything.

Make the lice treatment process longer

It makes the whole treatment process longer than it needs to be. It’s an unnecessary time consuming step to an already uncomfortable and time consuming treatment. Not to mention hot! Who wants to sit and have lice removed any longer than necessary. And to be honest just a normal treatment isn’t fun or quick.

Using this device is how they justify their high prices. It’s not necessary and it’s not effective. Trust me. If it was effective and made the job easier everybody including us would be using it! There’s no patent restriction on hot air! 

It’s a gimmick to take advantage of panicked parents and make them think they have something special. It’s a good marketing tactic but at the cost of taking advantage of parents. They know certain people will pay anything to get rid of lice and that’s what they take advantage of. Top lice professionals in the industry rely solely on the comb out process. It’s time tested and just works! 

So unless robots become available and don’t try to murder us first, some things you just have to do manually. Don’t get taken advantage of. And if you already did. Sorry about that. 


So kids, just like with drugs, alcohol and salty snacks. Just say no! You can thank me later with salty snacks.

  1. This makes complete sense, thank you for putting it so plainly! It sounded a bit fishy to me, putting it like this makes it clear. It’s a bunch of hot air.

  2. Why spend so much time and energy trying to debunk a process that clearly works, as evidenced by the thousands upon thousands of positive reviews on any Lice Clinics of America clinic’s site? Why not just tout the value of your own business? The only thing fishy is when someone has to work so awfully hard to try to debunk someone else’s effort. Then again, no need to take my word for it.

  3. I have personally seen hundreds of lice dropping dead from the heat. And it isn’t as hot as a blow dryer. Weeks later, though there were still eggs in the hair, after a thorough wet combat, no lice were found.

    It sounds like you are afraid of a superior process and have to resort to chicanery to try to get ahead.

  4. I own a lice clinic that is not in your market. We are not competitors.
    We aren’t doing heat treatments since the start of covid, but we do miss it and will start doing them again when it’s safe. With the machine, we were able to completely treat people with dread locks in a single treatment without combing because it actually does kill all the eggs. It’s interesting that you mention people coming back because they still have lice- that’s not our experience at all. We have never had a failed treatment. Maybe someday we will, but so far we haven’t in the 3.5 years we have been open. We do very effective traditional comb outs also (it’s all we offer right now), and we charge about what you charge.
    Also, nobody says the machine is FDA Approved. It is FDA *Cleared* because the FDA does not do approvals for medical devices. It doesn’t sound like you were actually an owner of an LCA. The people I know who left the network still know that the machine works. They know other methods work also. We don’t bash each other. Why are you so angry?

    1. Thank you for your comment. The owner of Lice Suppport helped open a LCA but yes she didn’t own it. No bashing. We’re all on the same side fighting lice. We just don’t believe in charging high prices for something that isn’t absolutely necessary. No ones angry. Sorry if you are. Keep up the good fight!

    seem to be running off the screen in Opera. I’m not sure if this
    is a formatting issue or something to do with browser compatibility
    but I thought I’d post to let you know. The design look great though!
    Hope you get the problem solved soon. Kudos
