Lisa asked:

Does putting hair in plaits or a pony tail act as prevention?

Hello Lisa,

Keeping hair tied back can definitely help to prevent head lice, but we also recommend using our shampoo and spray plus doing regular detection combing, to be really sure.

Why do head lice only live on the head?

Hello Sally,

Head lice like living on scalps because they survive by biting into our skin and feeding off the blood!

Carlene asked:

Should I get in a routine now checking everyday? Or is once a week enough?

Hello Carlene,

We suggest visually checking the hair line after every wash and detection combing once a week, unless there's an outbreak in which case it will need to be more frequent.
