Information about Head Lice

Hello everyone,

Head lice and nits are very common in young children. They don’t have anything to do with dirty hair and are usually picked up from head-to-head contact.

Head lice sometimes can make your head feel:

  • itchy
  • like something is moving in your hair

The only way to be sure someone has head lice is by finding live lice or eggs.

You can do this by combing their hair with a special fine-toothed comb (detection comb). You can pick up one of these for free at The Mercat.

It is a good idea to check your child’s hair regularly.
