Struggling with head lice at home? We've got the perfect solution...

We all know that feeling of dread that comes with seeing your kid itching their head, or receiving that dreaded head lice letter from their school.

Not only do your kids have to deal with the itchiness and discomfort that comes with those pesky nits, but it can also be difficult to treat the infestation and prevent it from happening again.

With that in mind, we've put together some of our top tips for treating and preventing lice at home.

From hassle-free treatments to preventing re-infestation, here's how you can keep those pesky nits at bay...

Schedule regular comb-throughs

One of the best ways of preventing lice in the home is to catch them early, before they spread from head to head. And one of the best ways to find head lice early on is to look for them on a regular basis

Taking time every week to look for any new lice that have taken hold is one of the surest ways of preventing it from spreading around your household. Once or twice a week, use a fine-toothed comb to go through your child's wet hair, keeping an eye out for any lice or eggs that may be present.


Use treatment and prevention products regularly

Keep long hair tied back

Often, our kids can't avoid catching lice when they're out and about, but there are some situations where you're more likely to encounter these nasty little guys.

Certain outings like school, sports clubs and sleepovers can be a breathing ground for head lice, so it might be worth taking extra precautions during these activities. Tying back long hair and avoiding head-to-head contact are some of the easiest steps you can take to prevent head lice from getting in to your home.
