Back to school lice tips from the Lice Experts

Now that NYC children are back to in school, it is important for parents to be on alert to prevent head lice. The CDC reports that children between the ages of 3 and 12 are the most likely to get head lice. There are several options parents can use to prevent lice from affecting their children.

Screen your child regularly

Early detection makes treatment easier and keeps lice from spreading to friends and family. Lice can be difficult to see with the naked eye. Head lice typically live about a quarter of an inch from the scalp where they feel warmth from the scalp. A magnifying glass and a lice comb are the tools the professionals use to identify lice. These lice experts have a trained eye to look for nits and lice where they like to hide to avoid a major outbreak.

Keep hair in a bun or braid

Lice spread through hair-to-hair contact. Keep long hair in a bun or in a tight braid. This can go a long way in keeping fly away hair from touching others hair.

Use prevention products daily

There are several products on the market that can be used to deter lice from crawling onto your child’s hair by repelling lice. These sprays and hair ties repel lice with scents that aren’t detectable by humans but they are extremely offensive to lice. Keep an eye out for non-toxic formulas. Licenders offers several options.
