TLC is recommended by doctorsWhy are nits so hard to get out?

Head lice can persist for weeks and in some cases months if you don’t get the nits out. This is the problem many families face. Michele Earl – the inventor of TLC – was faced with this very situation until finding the formula for what became Total Lice Control Shampoo.

The biggest problem in dealing with head lice is getting the nits out of the hair. They are very small and close to the scalp. Lice eggs (nits) hatch approximately 7 days after being laid. Using an effective and safe shampoo which can be used daily allows the time needed to comb out the nits.
