Lice: Prevention

There’s not much you can do to keep lice from finding its way onto your child’s head other than asking him not to share combs, brushes, hats or earphones. But since lice much easier to treat if caught early, why not make a good comb-through a weekly ritual? Done well (with a little detangler beforehand), it can even be a pleasurable experience for your child and help them cooperate if (or more likely when) they do bring lice home.
