With summer in full swing, it is important to keep in mind all the ways that lice can spread during summertime travelling. The last thing you want during your much needed vacation is to worry about head lice. Luckily, Fresh Heads Lice Removal can quickly get rid of all your head lice in only 30-90 minutes so you can return to normal life as soon as possible. Here are some ways you can prevent head lice this summer:
Educate Your Children
Many children are unaware of lice and the discomfort they cause until they experience a lice infestation themselves. In order to avoid this, it is beneficial to educate your children on lice and how they are spread in order to reduce their chances of contracting lice.
Direct contact with the hair of a person with lice (head to head contact) is the most common method of spreading head lice. With this knowledge, your child can be more aware and cautious of their proximity towards others while traveling. By educating your child on the potential symptoms of head lice, you can catch the infestation earlier on and get treated as soon as possible.
Get Your Head Checked For Lice
Before going on any trip, you should always get a head lice screening just in case. Not only will this prevent the spread of lice to others, but it will make your trip much more enjoyable knowing that you are 100% lice free.
Wear Protective Hairstyles
When travelling to a new location it is nearly impossible to know where lice infestations are. The best way to keep your head safe from lice in public is to wear hairstyles that make it harder to attract lice. Wearing your hair in a ponytail, pig tails, or any type of hairstyle that picks up and pulls back your hair instead of leaving it down is beneficial. Braiding your hair is another common hairstyle that helps to keep lice away.
