How can I prevent head lice and nits?

Lice are annoying little creatures. Not only do they make you itchy, but they spread rapidly to other people. Come what may, you don’t want them nesting in your (children’s) hair. Fortunately, there are several things you can do to prevent infestation.

  1. Regular checks

Check the whole family for lice on a regular basis. Run through every lock of hair with a fine detection comb, especially behind the ears and around the neck. Wash the comb in tepid soapy water afterwards.

  1. Wear long hair in a ponytail

Do you have a daughter with long hair? It’s a good idea to put the hair in a ponytail. It won’t eliminate the chances of infestation, but it will greatly reduce them.

  1. Use a method of lice prevention

Elimax® kills lice and nits and prevents infestation by keeping lice at bay.
