My daughter had been complaining for the last week that her head was hitching. I had checked for lice a few days before and found nothing so I decided to add skin cream, maybe it was dried skin. To my shock I found “nits” at the root of her hair. She had nits the year before so I knew that to get ride of these bugs takes a lot more patience that neither my daughter nor I have. So I called the experts the “Lice Squad” and luckily they came the next morning.
Our morning of nit picking became very educational. There’s a huge stigma attached to lice. Many people think they are found in dirty environments. In fact they love clean hair and prefer 3 to 13 year old children. Lice easily jump or climb from from one hair strand to another. You are less likely to get lice if you have coloured hair or you are an adult male. They reproduce like rabbits and can hold their breath for 4 hours. The only way to get ride of them is by applying a specially made solution. Lice Squad has an all natural version that kills the brain of the lice. They comb it through the hair with a special comb.
Educate yourself on what to look for so you can detect them early before the eggs hatch and populate your lovely child’s head and eventually yours. Check your kids hair regularly and after every vacation.
