Precautions for Head Lice


Do not share personal items like combs, brushes, clips, hair bands, hats, scarves, coats, brushes or towels.

Never try on hats or any headwear while at a shop. This way you put yourself at risk of contracting lice.

Never touch head to head with any person.

For head lice treatment wash your all the clothes after you visit to a hairdresser.

Check your child's hair behind and above the ears and on the back of the neck carefully every day.

If nits are found - thoroughly wash bedding linen, pillows, towels, coats, scarves, hats, brushes, combs, etc. in hot water with tea tree oil or dettol added.

To prevent the spread of head lice, if any family member is infected, treat all members of the family at the same time.

Brush hair vigorously 2-3 times a day using a bristle hairbrush to knock off the nits.
