How to Ensure a Lice-Free Summer

Many of us believe that head lice is a seasonal occurrence, but it is in fact a year-round problem. While schools put our kids at a higher risk of exposure to head lice, there are other avenues that too can expose our kids to head lice such as vacation getaways, summer camps, parties, and casual gatherings.

Trendy vacation hair-braiding kiosks presents as a high risk for head lice exposure. Take notice of the cleanliness of the sought after kiosk including any tools that may be used. Don’t be afraid to ask questions as to how they clean their working area as well as any hair tools used. If you ever have second thoughts, listen to your intuition and walk away from a potential lice nightmare.  If you are at all concerned, contact a professional head lice removal clinic upon your return to Toronto.

While not all of us are on vacation, many kids around Toronto are attending summer camp. Every parent should prepare themselves for their kids returning with lice. While some camps perform mandatory lice checks before camp begins, there are some that still don’t perform checks or at least don’t do a thorough job. Where lice spreads like wildfire in schools, it spreads even faster in camps due to a high population of kids and counselors in very close quarters with one another on a daily basis. If your kids have yet to start camp this summer, equip them with some essentials: a Terminator lice comb, The Lice People’s Mint Shampoo and Conditioner, and The Lice People’s Mint Lice Repellent Spray. Kids who are soon starting camp or are already in camp should be checked by professional head lice removal clinic once they have returned home to ensure they are lice free by the time they start school.

As far as your kids attending parties or casual gatherings, the Terminator comb should be on the ready for when they return home. By combing the hair after any gathering with a group of other kids, head lice that could have transferred to your child will be combed out before it has a chance to create a full-blown infestation.
