Lets not get Lice!
One more thing! Don’ t forget anytime the kiddos interact with others, especially at fun events, sleepovers, play dates etc, it is safest to put their hair up. Head lice is spread mostly by head to head contact. A lot of us mommies need to go to “You Tube” to find DIY videos to make our daughters hair look adorable in a up do! The benefits are endless because when our children’s hair is down and they come into contact with another infested person, the length of their hair is the length of the target for lice to be flung, or contracted from head to head contact.

 

At Lice Clinics of America we offer professional head lice removal services as well as screenings so if your kids have spent a good time with other kids and you want piece of mind or need to be treated, we are here for you.
