Lice eggs are the size of a grain of sand and are glued to the hair strand. Not sure what lice eggs/nits look like? Below is an example of what you should be looking for if you are checking for signs of lice in hair.
Our Los Alamitos and Torrance Clinics are the exclusive regional operators of the AirAllé® (pronounced air-a-lay), an FDA-cleared medical device that kills head lice and 99%+ of lice eggs in a single, one-hour treatment.
Your kids just came home with head lice? Don’t panic. We can help! Savvy parents know that getting rid of lice eggs is the hardest part of an effective lice treatment. That’s why they love the AirAllé® device.
AirAllé® was invented by scientists at the University of Utah and it uses a specific technique that combines temperature and airflow for 30 minutes to kill lice and eggs through dehydration. This FDA-cleared medical device kills lice and their eggs through controlled heated air and is an alternative to treating lice with pesticides, suffocation products, herbal lice remedies, or lice combs.
We provide an optional 30 day lice free guarantee on our signature treatments!*
If the person we treat gets lice again for any reason at all beyond our control within 30 days after our Signature treatment and one of our certified head lice technicians determines that the person has an active lice infestation we will treat that person again for free!
The AirAllé®s medical device has performed over 350,000 successful treatments
*Qualifying for our optional 30-day guarantee: Lice is spread through head-to-contact and all immediate family members are at risk of getting lice. For your protection, our certified head technicians must head screen and apply our chemical free active rinse or treat all immediate family members that live with the person full-time or part time within 24 hours.
Complimentary immediate family member head screen for dad! Dads with a shaved head or short hair can and do get lice! All lice need is a warm scalp and strand of hair to survive.

There is nothing to be ashamed or embarrassed about! Lice have been around for over 8,000 years and you get head lice from another person.
Lice don’t hop, jump, or fly-they have 6 legs and they only crawl.

Head-to-head contact is the easiest way that lice is spread. This allows the adult lice to easily grab on to another hair strand (think selfies, hugging, and sleeping next to each other).
Lice do not care about gender, age, ethnicity, day of the week, time of the year, color of your hair, texture of your hair, personal hygiene, income, what you do for a living, if you have had lice before or if you have never had head lice before.
All lice care about is that you have a strand of hair and a warm scalp for them to live and feed on.
In today’s world of selfies, constant head-to-head contact, and over-the-counter products that no longer work, lice is much more common these days in children of all ages. 10-14 year old girls is the most common school age children we treat. But every day we treat children of all ages. Just about every school will have a lice outbreak during the year. We have now treated children from over 850 different schools.
1 in 20 U.S. children (6-12 million) get head lice each year!
Based on head screenings that our clinics have done over the past 3+ years, mom’s will get head lice about 80% of the time when their children have lice, particularly moms with children that they still sleep or cuddle with since that means more head-t0-head contact.
Just half of the head lice infestations we treat are school-age children. The other half of people we treat are parents and older siblings.
We treat lots of moms, dads, grandparents and yes-dads!
Had it with over-the-counter products that do not work?
Lice have mutated over the years and are now resistant to the chemicals in over-the-counter shampoos in at least 48 states (including California).
Combing out lice and their eggs yourself can work but it is very frustrating and stressful. It takes patience, time, and accuracy. Even if you are able to comb out your own children, combing out your own hair is almost impossible because the eggs live behind the scalp and the nape of the neck.
An adult lice is the size of a sesame seed and can be a challenge to see or feel. Itching is often a sign of lice. About 40% of people are allergic to the saliva of lice which causes itching but that means 60% of people do not itch when they have lice.
Savvy parents know that getting rid of the lice eggs (nits) is the biggest challenge to ending a head lice infestation. Lice eggs are particularly challenging to see for the human eye because they are so small. They are the size of a grain of sand and they do not move. You are truly looking for a needle in a haystack.
The adult lice secretes a glue like sticky substance so the lice eggs are glued to the hair strand, which is why the eggs are often called nits. The lice egg has a protective shell that outside product simply cannot penetrate. All lice eggs have to hatch within about 5-7 days. If you miss one single egg,the infestation can last weeks, months, and even years.
An adult lice lays up to 6 eggs per day for three weeks.
There is need to spend time, energy, and stressing out to clean your house. Lice cannot infest a house.
Lice do not hop, jump, or fly-they only crawl. Lice cannot live off the human head for more than 48 hours. The adult lice needs to suck blood from the human scalp every 2-3 hours for food. The lice eggs need the warmth of the scalp to survive/nest on.
The key to ending a head lice infestation is to get the lice and eggs of the host scalp!
