So many people associate a head lice infestation with being unclean. This stigma is so pronounced that, very often, people choose to keep their head lice issues secret. It is a personal choice whether or not to share information about a head lice attack. However, the problem with keeping the information hush is that others around you were possibly exposed, and may give it back to you! Your mission, instead, should be to find the person that shared the head lice, and convince them to treat the problem as well!
At a recent summit about head lice (so exciting, right?), we discussed the disgustfactor of the louse parasite. Lice Clinics of America Clinic Owners understand how uncomfortable these little bugs can make families feel. We get it. This post is not aimed at dismissing those innate and uncontrollably itchy responses to head lice. The goal, instead, is to confirm those feelings – but to separate the reactions to head lice bugs from the responses to actually havinglice. Basically, just because you think head lice are gross, does not mean that you are gross for being exposed to them.
So, if you are faced with a head lice outbreak, and you are making that decision about whether or not to warn others, repeat this phrase out loud: “Head Lice Love Clean Hair”. It makes sense, right? With such a short life cycle, why would lice want to battle with a junk-yard-style scalp, when they could find a clean and clear head to explore? Instead of meaning you are unclean, exposure to head lice more likely means you are loved, popular, friendly, involved and clean…Head Lice Love Clean Hair!
