No, you may get rid of the bugs, but the nits stayed on and will hatch with 7-10 days. Actually, you should be aware that some lice infestation can come from a hair salon.
12- Does having Nits mean that I have Lice?
Most probable; This is the worst part of the treatment and in most cases treatments done at home are incomplete because the person is not able to remove every nit. 7 to 10 days after those nits are going to hatch and become new lice. Nits, you will never get rid of because they are so tiny that the combs that come with the pharmacy products can't catch them, leaving them on your head means that the infestation is still going on and as a result the client will continue itching and at risk of an infestation which may lead to a systemic disease that may cost you more that a professional lice treatment with us.
