There's no true season for head lice, but there is usually an outbreak after vacations. With spring break right around the corner, Hair Spies offers advice for preventing head lice.

There is no true season for head lice, but outbreaks typically occur after vacations or breaks from school. This year, Hair Spies, Inc. a professional head lice removal salon, is ready with advice to help you prevent a head lice infestation.

Hair Spies' first suggestion is to have your own lice comb. Combing through the hair is the most effective way to screen for head lice. Lice combs should have long slim metal teeth that are close together. These combs need to be very fine in order to trap the head lice which are smaller than sesame seeds. In order to run this type of comb through the hair, you will need to apply generous amounts of water and we recommend a cream conditioner. Check at the nape of the neck, behind the ears, and crown of the head. Also try running the comb through all the hair from the forehead to the nape of the neck. In order to trap the lice, the comb should touching the scalp at all times.

As a preventive measure, Hair Spies recommends wearing your hair up at all times. This minimizes the opportunity for hair to hair contact with other people. Hair to hair contact is the number one way that head lice is spread. Hair Spies also recommends daily use of an herbal leave-in conditioner spray. These sprays can double as detanglers and head lice repellant. To be effective in helping you avoid head lice, look for products with tea tree oil and rosemary.

Good luck this season, and remember, the best way to avoid head lice is to wear your hair up, and use an herbal leave in conditioner.
