Prevention Tips

  • Avoid hair-to-hair contact when taking ‘selfies’ with your friends.
  • Do not share hats, helmets, brushes, combs, towels, pillows, sleeping bags, jackets, etc…
  • Keep hair up and coated with product. Studies have shown that herbs such as rosemary, mint and tea tree oil can repel lice.
  • Educate children to NOT have head to head contact when hugging or playing.
  • During sleepovers, alternate head to feet positions to avoid head contact.
  • When in a movie theater, bring something to drape over the chair to eliminate hair contact with fibrous material.
