September is Back To School & National Lice Awareness Month
Back to School is a stressful time for families normally and now even more so with the Covid-19 Virus. It takes time for children and parents to adjust to online learning, new school schedules, virtual teaching from teachers, wearing masks, staying sanitized and ultimately safe. Even with all of the preparation, planning and amazing organization skills of most parents, it is tough to juggle work, virtual teaching, parenting, and self care. Absolutely NO ONE schedules time to have head lice, especially at a time like this.
Unfortunately, head lice is on the rise in some parts of the country. “Head lice disrupts the normal rhythm of family life until it is resolved. Parents spend hours combing and cleaning until the life cycle of the lice infestation is interrupted,” says Nit Wits Lice Removal Owner in Louisville, Kentucky .
So how do you and your family stop lice before they start?Nit Wits Lice Removal has not only great lice prevention, but also a full line of lice prevention products to help keep your family lice-free throughout the start of school. Whether that be virtual learning, pod learning, or if your child is back in their regular classroom.
If your child has long hair, wearing it up in a tight bun is the way to go. “Lice don’t jump or fly,” says Nit Wits Owner. “They only move from person to person through hair-to-hair contact, so wearing hair in a tight bun or a tight braid 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 head lice professional as soon as possible to determine level of lice infestation and get the best lice treatment options available. Our lice 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. If your child is in a pod, we recommend you alerting parents of everyone in that learning pod should get a lice head check.
Nit Wits Lice clinic provides head lice prevention education and clinical-strength products. Our full line of lice prevention products acts as an extra line of defense against head lice for kids, parents and caregivers, which is extremely important during an outbreak. We offer non-toxic and pesticide-free products that stop super lice, guaranteed.
