Head lice are more prevalent during back-to-school time...and that season will be back before we know it. A head louse (the singular form of lice - yes, we looked it up) looks like a tan or grayish insect (about the size of a strawberry seed). They attach to a piece of hair by crawling and are transmitted through head-to-head contact (they can not jump or fly) - this is why head lice is more common in families with young children or those that come in close contact at school.
Our EcoClear team wants you to be prepared - that is why we’ve collected everything you need to know about how to indicate head lice, preventative measures you can take and how to safely & naturally treat them.
Signs & Symptoms
Besides the most common sign of head lice, itching, there are other indicators of an infestation. See some listed below:
✓ Lice eggs (nits) on hair
✓ Sores on the scalp, neck and shoulders
✓ Lice on scalp
Nits are commonly mistaken for dandruff, residue from other hair products, dead hair tissue, dirt or debris - be sure to not mistake a lice infestation for one of these before purchasing a treatment.
According to mayoclinic.org, head lice occurs most often with children in preschool through elementary. While it may not be 100% preventable, there are preventative measures that you can take. When it comes to sending your kids off to school for the new year, or sending them to a sleepover/playdate with friends, keep the following things top of mind:
✓ Don’t share hairbrushes, combs, hair accessories
✓ Have your child bring their own pillow & blanket to a sleepover
✓ Don’t share towels
✓ Don’t exchange clothes, especially hats, scarves or jackets
If you or your child has come in close contact with a confirmed case of head lice, make sure to get checked out by your doctor before seeking treatment. There are many over-the-counter treatments, such as combs or shampoos, but they are not always effective and warrant multiple treatments.
