Myths & Facts of Lice

Feb 11, 2020 | News, NitFlix

First and foremost – to this day; people still unknowingly mistake the myths & facts of lice. So, there are things you really need to know about how these pesky bugs spread.

Myths & Facts of Lice

At the same time, there are myths that are as pesky as the bugs that spread.

So, the first thing to know; lice don’t have wings; therefore they cannot fly or jump. However, they move by crawling. Therefore, it is easy for kids to get lice when playing next to other kids who already have lice. With kids in close contact; these bugs can easily spread from one person to another.

Since kids play in the water; many think chlorine in a pool will kill lice. However, that is not true. Be sure to check out my Peak Lice Season 2019 post to read how chlorine doesn’t make a difference. Therefore, it is important to make sure your kids don’t share their comb, hairbrush or towels with other kids.

More importantly, it’s a priority to teach your kids things they should and shouldn’t share with other children, and this will help your kids avoid getting lice.

Hygiene Habits

Indeed, your hygiene habits have nothing to do with whether or not you will get lice. Although many people think that if you have a clean head; you will not get lice. In fact, no matter how clean your head is; you can still contact lice.

Lice can make a home in anyone’s head.

With this in mind, it is important to use NitFlix to prevent these bugs from ever making an appearance in your life. Be sure to visit my New Year Clean Head Tips post where you will learn about the importance of tips and tricks that will eliminate these critters forever.

Long Hair and Lice

Do lice prefer long hair? Of course, this myth isn’t true whatsoever. When it comes to the length of someone’s hair; it truly doesn’t matter. Consequently, it doesn’t matter whether you have short, long, curly or straight hair. The bottom line is lice like every one’s hair – they don’t discriminate.

Do people who Scratch their Head have Lice

Of course, this is another myth. Whether someone scratches their head; it doesn’t mean they have lice. They could have just had an itch or an irritation.

Indeed, it is important to know about prevention. Be sure to visit my Preventive Measures post where you will learn the importance of not ever having to house these critters.

In summary, it is important that all parents and people use NitFlix as part of their beauty and skin routine regularly.

As always, I welcome your comments.
