Head Lice

Head Lice. Every parent's worst nightmare. Ok, it's not the WORST thing that can happen but it's pretty darn annoying and frustrating anyway. Search the internet for head lice and the two questions that get asked the most is "What does head lice look like?!" And "How do I get rid of head lice?!" We have only had to experience it once to know that I would hate to have to deal with it again but the truth is, while it is a nuisance, a very disgusting nuisance, it really isn't the end of the world.  It does take time and diligence to get rid of but it's not as bad as many people think. I was sent a website today called Licecombing that is a really great resource for parents. With a lot of kids playing baseball right now (sharing helmets!) and going off to summer camps, this is a great time to review the basics of head lice. gives instructions on exactly how to get rid of head lice without chemicals or special shampoos. It also shows pictures and videos so you know exactly what you are looking for. Unfortunately head lice is pretty difficult to see in some instances and often times people will mistake the eggs aka nits for dandruff. The biggest difference is that dandruff will be easy to shake out of the hair. Nits attach themselves to the hair and are difficult and time consuming to remove. 

Ok, so now you have a great resource should you ever encounter these pesky little bugs. Now I must move on to a new topic as I have been itching through this entire post. LOL I swear, just the mention of head lice makes me itch like crazy! HA!

Ugh, yes, the very thought of head lice makes me start scratching my head. Thankfully, we've never had to deal with lice here.
