Back to School is a stressful time for families. It takes time for children and parents to adjust to new schedules, teachers, homework and after school activities. Even with all of the preparation, planning and amazing organization skills of most parents who are juggling work and home life, no one schedules time to have head lice.
“Head lice can disrupt the normal rhythm of family life until it is resolved. Parents must spend hours combing and cleaning until the life cycle of the lice infestation is interrupted,” says Samson, owner of Lice Clinics of America – Fresno.
So how do you and your family stop lice before they start? Lice Clinics of America has not only great prevention and but also a full line of prevention products to help keep your family lice-free.
If your child has long hair, wearing it up in a tight bun is the way to go. “Lice don’t fly or jump,” says Samson. “They only move from person to person through hair-to-hair contact, so wearing hair in a tight braid or a tight bun can protect against loose hair touching someone else’s hair.”
Should you see evidence of head lice, find out that your child has come in contact with someone with lice, or receive a note home that there are head lice at school, the best course of action is to book a head lice screening with a professional as soon as possible to determine level of infestation and get treatment options. Our clinic offers professional head lice screenings. Since lice can easily be transferred within a household, we encourage the entire family to be screened as soon as you discover that you or your child may have been exposed to lice. This will ensure you can stop the lice infestation before it spreads to other family members and friends.
Our clinic provides head lice prevention education and clinical-strength products. “Our full line of prevention products acts as an extra line of defense against head lice for kids, parents and caretakers, which is incredibly important during an outbreak. We offer non-toxic and pesticide-free products that stop super lice,” says Samson.
