“Thank goodness for Amy at My Hair Helpers. She was kind, professional, knowledgable and thorough. Not only did she handle our family’s lice, but she also taught me a lot about detection and prevention of lice so that I can avoid our family ever getting it again. I highly recommend Amy at My Hair Helpers!”
Head lice are tiny six legged insects that are blood sucking parasites.They live on the scalp of humans.
The evidence for head lice goes back many centuries. Lice was named as the third plague in the Old Testament of the Bible. The shell casings for lice have been found on Egyptian mummies.
In the majority of cases, head lice is passed with head to head contact. A smaller number of cases are passed through brushes and combs and sharing hats. Lice don’t like to leave their food supply unless a warm head is waiting for them.
Head lice actually prefer clean hair! It’s more difficult for them to lay eggs on greasy or dirty hair.
