Every parent hopes
to avoid dealing with head lice, but much like taxes, some things can’t always
be avoided. In the United States alone, an estimated six to 12 million head
lice infestations occur each year in school aged children.[i]
If you are facing head lice after your child returns home from camp, there are
resources available to help!

The Headfirst!Expert Advice on Lice website is
driven by experts who are also moms, so they get it. The site features basic
information on the little critters like symptoms, diagnosis, prevention and
treatment options, and a variety of tools including:



·        
The How to Lose the Lice Guide, with a handy checklist to save time and reduce
stress when battling head lice

·        
The Headfirst! Lice Experience video allows you to choose your experience, whether it be you’re not sure
you have lice, or you just want to get rid of them:







It’s important to
remember the most common way to spread head lice is head-to-head contact.
Thinking ahead with things like teaching your child to avoid sharing brushes or
hats is a good start.

So if you’re trying
to get rid of head lice post-camp, or a parent who always likes to be prepared
for next season, visit Headfirst! Expert Advice on Lice for more information.
