Bye Bye Bugs.

Updated: Jul 1

Lice preventatives sure to keep any head bug burdens away.

Back to school is fast approaching with new hats, hair bows, backpacks, and books accompanying our little learners on their new adventures. The risk of contracting head bugs or head lice increases when brave littles ones are making new connections, exploring, and being curious little humans during the new school year this fall. Just thinking about those tiny creepy crawlers makes me itch. Head lice is something I wouldn’t even wish on the boogey man; It’s difficult, it’s uncomfortable, inconvenient, and worst of all it's TIME CONSUMING. Let’s do everything in our power to stop them in their tracks and prevent their existence on those luscious locks before it becomes a nuisance.


Although lice DO NOT jump, contrary to popular belief, the biggest culprit to the spread of head lice is those friendly hugs, thoughtful shared gestures, and innocent play that involves direct contact.


SHARING ITEMS THAT COME IN CONTACT WITH YOUR HAIR, HEAD, FACE, or BODY.

Friends, we aren’t here to tell you sharing isn’t caring, but in this case sharing is the fastest way to spread those buggy bugs and that’s not the bee’s knees! Stressing the importance of refraining from sharing:

-Combs/hair brushes, hair bows, ear buds, beanies, baseball caps, hoodies, scarves, and backpacks. Keeping these items personal is the first step in preventing troubling head lice. We must do our part to educate our little ones on things that are safe/appropriate to share and explain why certain items should be kept to themselves.

-Photo ops too close… we can’t help but snap a shot with our favorite people just to hang onto those memories for even longer. Next time you say “cheese” remember lice can’t jump, but they do crawl fast! It never hurts to ensure your photo buddy is lice free or keep a little more distance.


YOU ARE NOT IN THE CLEAR JUST BECAUSE YOU’RE BUYING NEW APPERAL AT A RETAIL STORE!

When visiting big box retailers, mom & pop shops, or second-hand stores alike, we can never be too sure which items have been tried on, played with/touched, or previously purchased before our contact with hats, masks, hair accessories, etc. If possible, avoid trying on unwashed items before you are able to isolate the product in your own home for a minimum of 72 hours. If weary, keeping the item in a trash bag and/or in a warm location to kill any previous contact with head lice is key.
