Head Lice Treatment is not a painful process, but cleaning and washing other things (where head lice could be) may become a pain.
However, it is imperative that you change and wash bed sheets to prevent re-infestation, because if there are any lice on your bed, they will crawl back to your head when you lie down.
So, how often do you have to change and wash bed sheets?
Remember, you have to change and wash bed sheets after you complete your head lice treatment. There is no need to change them when you discover that you have head lice.
After you treat your hair, you have to repeat the treatment after 7 or 10 days to kill any newly hatched nymphs. So, it’s best to change and wash your bed sheets twice, i.e. after every treatment.
Let’s say you start your head lice treatment today, you should change your bed sheets immediately after it’s done. Then, after 7 days, when you repeat the treatment, it would be ideal to repeat this process as well as there might be some nymphs on your bed sheet.
This practice will reduce the chances of re-infestations after a successful head lice treatment.
