When nasty critters set up camp in your child’s hair it can be a frustrating process trying to eliminate them. But fear not, we can help you with your challenge. So what steps can you take to stop them invading hair in the first place and what should you do if you receive that dreaded head lice letter from school?
Believe it or not, it’s not the biting that causes your child to itch. The annoying itching is actually an allergic reaction to secretions from the lice, which is enough to make your skin crawl, let alone your head itch. Some people don’t itch when they’ve got an infestation, so you can’t take itching as a sign of unwelcome visitors. The only way to remedy the problem and keep your child happy and nit-free is to check little heads regularly and introduce weekly nit combing sessions. It sounds like a drag, but we promise you’ll thank us for it in the end.
