How it works

The LouseBusterTM device provides South Africa with a revolutionary new way in the fight against lice. Developed in the USA, based on breakthrough research done by parasitologist Dr Dale Clayton and university students in Utah, they found that this device not only killed over 95% of the lice but over 99% of the nits as well, making the treatment a highly efficient method of combating lice.

The treatment is performed on clean dry hair. Please make sure that your child’s hair is brushed out and free of any hair products before the treatment commences.

The treatment with the LouseBusterTM Machine normally takes 30 minutes where a trained and certified operator will carefully work through the hair using the unique applicator tip which directs and concentrates the airflow close to the scalp where the lice and nits are located.

The treatment is followed by a comb out to remove the dead lice and nits and to abide by schools' "no nit" policies. The comb out can take anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour.

Post Treatment

To reduce your chances of re-infestation we recommend that the following measurements are taken after treatment.

It is recommended that you check all family members for signs of head lice for at least 10 to 15 days after treatment as it is very common for close friends and family to also be infected.

  • Examine the head in a well-lit area,
  • Carefully check the scalp, behind the ears and the nape of the neck,
  • Avoid head to head contact with anyone that has lice,
  • Inform your child’s school that your child was infected,
  • Insist on screening at the school.

The following measures should be taken at home

  • Vacuum the carpets, car seats and furniture including mattresses
  • Wash bedding towels and clothing in very hot water
  • Throw pillows, stuffed animals etc. into your tumble dryer at the highest heat for at least 20 minutes or seal in plastic bags for over 48 Boil hair ties and brushes for 10-20 minutes or freeze them in a plastic bag overnight.

Help! Does My Child Have Lice?

Look Out For The Following Symptoms:

  • Normally head lice cause the scalp to itch. This is caused by an allergy to the lice and not because the lice are biting the scalp
  • Nits (eggs) are normally found on the hair behind the ears or near the neckline
  • Symptoms include a tickling sensation
  • It’s easier to spot the nits than the lice. The nits are normally found about 6mm from the scalp on the hair
  • The nits will feel sandy/grainy and cling very tightly to the hair strands when you run your fingers through the hair
