A lot of people think that they should use anti-lice shampoos and lotions to prevent head lice. Remember, these shampoos and lotions contain insecticides and they should only be used when you are 100% sure that you have lice. If you don’t have lice, then you must avoid such head lice treatments.
It’s not advisable to put chemicals in your hair unnecessarily. Plus, using anti-lice products before you get infested won’t prevent you from getting lice, because head lice are not automatically born in your hair, rather they move from one host to another.
So, to avoid head lice, you have to avoid the things from where you can get head lice.
Let’s now discuss how you can realistically prevent head lice:
- Head lice move from one host to another host through towels. So, avoid using the towel of infested person and you will successfully prevent head lice from residing on your scalp.
