Head Lice prevention measures ...

How can I protect my family from lice?

Head lice do not fly, being transmitted from head to head or through hats, scarves and scarves. Seen like this, pediculosis contagion seems inevitable, since we cannot control our children 24 hours a day and especially when they play, where it is common to touch and be with other children to perform activities. Still, we can do everything we can to prevent head lice and nits on our children (and ourselves).

 

What precautions can we take to prevent lice?

USE PREVENTIVE PRODUCTS

There are preventive products that help prevent the appearance of Lice and Nits due to their repellent properties. At Happy Heads Clinic we have preventive products 100% Natural, without chemicals or silicones, that keep lice away from the heads.

SHORT OR TIED HAIR

Lice like a warm environment, so they are found especially lodged in the neck or behind the ears. For girls the best option is to use long hair either braided or bound  and for boys to wear short hair as it helps to prevent head lice since it is more difficult for the hair to come together

REGULAR CHECKS TO THE HAIR

It is important to check our children's heads by looking closely at the scalp and hair root weekly or every fortnight.

These checks are most effective when performed with the help of a good anti-lice comb as they detect lice more easily.

TEACH KIDS

Prevent children from sharing or exchanging brushes, combs, handkerchiefs, caps, hair bands and towels  or anything that promotes head-to-head contact

If the kids still got lice, don't worry ...
