On a scale from OTC treatments (ineffective) to our AirAllé® treatment (effective), coconut oil falls somewhere in the middle. In a clinical study, researchers found that a combo of anise spray and coconut oil outperformed traditional OTC lice treatments, specifically permethrin lotion. According to the study, out of 50 patients, 41 percent were cured using this combination. While around 23 percent were cured using an over-the-counter treatment. Both have a much lower efficacy than our AirAllé treatment, which has a 99.2 percent efficacy rate. It is the most successful lice treatment on the market and uses revolutionary technology.
OTC treatments declining in effectiveness is well-documented. Over time, head lice have built up immunity, making them less susceptible to treatment. That is why we call them “super lice.” They are super resistant, and also super frustrating for parents.
Similar To Other Home Remedies
Coconut oil acts similar to mayonnaise and olive oil but is a bit more reliable. It’s meant to suffocate lice and loosen bonds. Coconut oil is safer than mayonnaise or olive oil because it contains nutrients that are actually good for you. In the study, the reason for the effectiveness is because it’s mixed with anise oil. Coconut oil as a stand-alone treatment will not be effective.
Even if coconut oil mixed with anise oil is more effective than OTC lice treatments and other home remedies, it’s still only about 41 percent effective, with is not comparable to our treatment that is successful every time. We are so confident in our AirAllé® treatment that if it is not successful, we’ll treat you again for free within 30 days. It’s not worth trying a treatment that is successful less than half of the time when our works every single time. Do yourself a favor and read the reviews on our website. May parents bring their kids to us after trying many treatments that were unsuccessful.
