How to Prevent Head Lice Daily

Thanks to generations of myths and misinformation, the mere mention of a head lice infestation at school is enough to send some parents into panic mode. However panic, we’ve discovered, has absolutely no effect on whether a child picks up head lice ;) but a little education and watchfulness… that’s a different story!

Preventing head lice is easier and more pleasant for kids and parents and a good routine will make it much less likely that your child will be affected.

Daily steps to help prevent head lice (especially during an outbreak)

Weekly steps to help prevent head lice

  • Thoroughly check children’s hair for lice and eggs. Check out our 3-step guide to checking for head lice here.

Important: NitWits creator Nadine Ismiel-Nash recommends regular checks for head lice throughout the year.

“I definitely recommend making regular checks a habit…. Once a week is ideal.

Some parents will start checking when children start scratching but this isn’t a reliable symptom as less than half of children scratch as a result of head lice infestation."
