Does straightening your hair kill lice as well?

1 doctor agrees

In brief: See below

If the lice are caught in the straightener - yes, but more likely they will be near the scalp along with the eggs and the devise will likely not get that close (although the adjacent heat might work).
Still i would say - not guaranteed.
