Spring brings flowers, fun, and sun! Though we frolic through fields and wake from the sleepiness of winter, a familiar menace lurks underneath: Lice! As with any season, lice rears its ugly head yet again. Not to worry! We will give you 3 tips that will keep your relationship with lice as just a fling.
The Hair Do’s And Don’ts
For us long-haired people, when the weather gets warmer, our precious locks become an unbearable source of heat. Naturally, putting your hair up in a bun or ponytail is the best approach for instant relief. But, did you know that this is a great way to defend against lice? Having long hair leaves you at a higher risk of infestation, as hair-to-hair contact happens frequently between those with fabulous hair. If your hair has ever ended up in a tangled mess with someone else’s, you know what we’re talking about. So, either keep your hair short or put it up to avoid the hassle of lice!
Sports And Lice
In a sunny season, sports and activities are rampant and can be the bringer of lice. While kids are enjoying their sports, they may be sharing equipment and engaging in games in close quarters. The best way to avoid spreading lice is to not share any headgear or personal items. Lice cling on to these items, such as hats or helmets, which act as vessels for spreading lice! It is also important to avoid head-to-head contact, if at all possible. So, save yourself the headache and remember to check for lice after activities!
Spring Showers Bring May Flowers
For us on the West Coast, the beautiful sunshine is also met with a healthy dose of rain. Even though the rain waters budding flowers, it does very little to fight lice. In fact, contrary to popular belief, lice don’t drown underwater via showers, pools, lakes, or any other body of water you might visit this Spring. When put in contact with water, lice enter a state of suspended animation, which allows them to survive such conditions. So don’t take a trip to the lake to cure your lice problem. Instead, visit LCC Surrey for a fast, safe, and effective lice treatment that’s done in about an hour!
Just remember, Spring is great, but lice are not. When you need to deal with a lice problem, do it right the first time with LCC Surrey!
