How to stay lice free on Halloween

Halloween is coming up and it can be such fun with your family from pumpkin carving to trick or treating, dressing up and eating candy until your tummy hurts.

We want to give you some tips to help you keep your family lice free during this Halloween season. Some of these things you might not have thought of while others you may already be doing. Dressing up can be so fun for you and your children! It is common to share customes, wigs and other decorative items with your friends so that you can be many different characters throughout  Halloween week, here’s some tips to stay lice free:

  1. When exchanging customes, pay special attention to anything hair or head related. Check wigs, hats, hair bands, etc for evidence of lice.
  2. Ideally wash customes and put them on the dryer before re-using. If you can’t put them in the dryer, put them in an air tight bag for 48hrs.
  3. Itching is normal after wearing wigs, if your child is scratching… don’t panic. Wash their hair and dry it out, section the hair in small pieces to look for evidence of head lice, most likely it’s just a scare!
  4. Sleepovers are very common during halloween wig. We don’t want to ruin the fun but we want to help you be ahead of the game! If your child has sleepovers scheduled, put a head lice preventative spray on his/her bag.
