    There are four reasons why treatment of head lice can fail.

One way to make sure that you have covered all the hair is to comb the product in with a normal comb. Check how you are applying the product and read the instructions on the package. If you have done all of this then application is not a problem.

    Cause 2) the lice are resistant to the insecticide used.
