Preventing Head Lice

The spread of head lice can be controlled with prompt diagnosis and effective preventative measures.

The first thing one can do to help prevent the spread of lice is to discuss the subject openly with all family members. Lice can affect anyone, regardless of background or hygiene. And, if everyone knows what’s going on, the risk of infestation is cut in half. Lice cannot fly or jump, and they are normally transferred during direct head-to-head contact.

One should check family member’s hair for evidence of head lice on a regular basis. If you suspect your child has lice, please notify the school nurse to assist you with information, resources and recommendations.


If, head lice are NOT present, begin using preventative efforts and products immediately:

  • Use hair shampoo or products that contain tea tree mint, peppermint, lavender, or rosemary. The following hair products contain these ingredients and can be found at many local department stores and salon shops such as Walmart, Target, and Sally’s Beauty Supply:
    • Suave Professional Men Deep Clean Peppermint Shampoo
    • Organix Tea Tree Mint Shampoo
    • EDEN Body Works Peppermint Tea Tree All Natural Shampoo
    • Axe Zen Soothing Tea Tree Shampoo
    •  Giovanni Tea Tree Triple Treat Shampoo and Conditioner
    •  Lice Shield
    •  Natures Gate Tea Tree-Shampoo and Conditioner,
    •  California Baby Tea Tree & Lavender Shampoo & Body-wash,
    •  Proclaim Tea Tree Shampoo
    •  Generic Value Product Tea Tree Special Shampoo
  • Head lice thrive in clean hair. Keeping hair product in one’s hair creates an uncomfortable living environment for head lice.
  • Use styling products like mousse, sculpting gels, and hair spray help to keep lice away. One may choose to use hair conditioner after shampooing and do NOT completely rinse the conditioner from one’s hair. A disadvantage of doing this is that the conditioned hair may appear stringy or a little oily..
  • Avoid head-to-head contact with others.
  • Keep one’s long hair pulled up.
  • Do not share personal belongings such as hats, scarves, coats, combs, brushes, hair accessories and headphones.
