Head Lice Info

How do I prevent the spread of head lice?

Head lice can best be controlled through the cooperation of parents, children, daycares, schools and health care providers. Once you learn how to recognize head lice, regularly checking your own and your child’s hair is the best way to prevent the spread. Children should be encouraged not to share personal items such as hats, helmets, scarves, combs, hair accessories, hairbrushes or headphones. If your child has long hair, tie it up or put it in a braid.
