Helen asked:

Is there a time of year when kids are at more risk of catching head lice?

Hello Helen,

Interesting question! Generally, we see more reports when schools go back. Also, when the weather is humid head lice spread more easily.

Louise asked:

Can head lice jump?

Hello Louise,

It may come as a surprise that head lice can't jump! They can only spread by crawling during head to head contact.

Amy asked:

Is it true that spraying hair with hairspray stops them from getting head lice?

Hello Amy,

Unfortunately standard hairspray does not contain any ingredients that are natural head lice repellents. We would therefore recommend using our Squeaky Clean 3in1 Shampoo and Conditioning Defence Spray, which both help to prevent head lice.

Jazz asked:

How often do I need to check my childrens' hair for head lice?

Hello Jazz,

We would recommend checking childrens' hairline after every wash, and then doing detection combing every week if possible!

Gareth asked:

Can you drown nits?

Hello Gareth,

Data does show that head lice can survive under water for several hours but are unlikely to spread.

David asked:

What is the main cause of head lice?

Hello David,

Most people catch head lice from head to head contact which is why regular checking and keeping kiddies’ hair tied back at school is essential!
