Can lice survive a hair straightener?

The problem with using hair straighteners alone as a head lice treatment is the eggs. While the straightener is certainly hot enough to kill louse eggs (also known as nits), they are typically placed near the root of the hair or directly on the scalp, where the hair straightener will not reach.

Can dying your hair get rid of lice?

Does hair dye kill lice AND their nits as well? Hair dye kills lice because the chemicals attack the neurological system of an organism such as lice. The same thing applies for most of the eggs. However, nits that are less than 3 days old don't have any neurological system yet and therefore may stay unharmed.
