Lice Shampoo: Does it really kill lice?

The moment you discover that you or the kids have lice, the first reaction is to rush to the drug store and buy a lice shampoo. It seems very easy to just kill and wash away the lice except it doesn’t work.  If you have dealt with lice before, you know that the lice can be very resilient and that you need to break the life cycle of the bugs.

Do lice shampoos kill lice?

Truth be told, most of the lice shampoos do not 100% kill lice. And none of them can kill the eggs (nits). It is only a matter of days before the eggs hatch.  This cycle will continue unless you manually remove all of the eggs and lice.

How over-the-counter lice shampoos work

The way these products work is that the lice ingest the shampoo and the theory is that the bugs will die.   But now the lice have developed resistance to these products and the media have now started calling them “super lice”.
