Dee asked:

Do head lice only live in the hair?

Hello Dee,

Thanks for your great question! The answer is yes - head lice need the human body in order to live. They generally can't survive more than a couple of days off the body and cannot live in the hair of pets either.

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.

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.

Jean asked:

Can head lice survive on pets?

Hello Jean,

The answer is nope, human head lice cannot survive on pets! But they can affect humans of all ages, so if you get a head lice alert, be sure to check the whole family.

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.
