Lice Shampoos do not work. I think when people try them they learn this pretty quickly. There are lots of studies out now saying head lice have become resistant to lice shampoo. These studies say ordinary lice are resistant to pyrethrins and pyrethroids pesticides and are creating Super Lice. This means you spend lots of money on lice shampoo multiply times and the lice are drinking it up and it does not kill them.
The search for a better way of lice treatment is on going. Most scientist focus on killing head lice on the head. The problem with this approach is there are 3 stages to a lice life cycle. Each stage of lice development has its challenges. Lice Shampoo only kill adult lice. The pyrethrins and pyrethroids in the Lice Shampoo target the central nervous system of an adult louse. The nits/eggs and nymphs/babies don’t have a central nervous system so it is not effective in killing them.
