Prevention measures ...

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).

 

At Happy Heads Clinic we give some recommendations to prevent head lice:

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 hairs to come together.

1.

REGULAR CHECKS

It is important to check our children's heads by closely observing the scalp and root of the hair weekly or every fourteen days.

2.

TEACH KIDS

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

3.

ENSINAR OS MIÚDOS 

Ensinar os miúdos a não partilhar bonés, chapéus, cachecóis, travesseiros, pentes ou seja qualquer objecto que promova o contacto cabeça-a-cabeça.
