Got Lice? Wash your Head


In 2004 a California dermatologist discovered that a common facial cleaner known as Cetaphil was 96% effective in curing head lice. If his findings are accurate then this would mean a great improvement in the current treatment of lice irradication.

Before you rush out and stock up on Nuvo facial cleaner know that this study does have several limiting factors, and has not been studied long term as a full lice treatment.

The cleansers manufacture is not endorsing the study results saying it is a gentle cleanser and there is no active ingredient and there should be no effect on the lice.

It's a strange & not so well known fact that Head Lice prefer to inhabit CLEAN heads of hair.

I wouldn't say not so well known, we got taught that at school.

That was a pretty lame and uneducated comment. We all got lice at some point in our lives its called "being a kid and going to a public school".

I'll show you my diplomas if you show me yours.

P.S. I never got lice.

Practice proper hygeine and you wont get lice by yourself - the reason you may still get it, is that it jumps from head to head, and there are bound to be some unhygenic kids at school that bring it there.

My schools all practiced quarrantine - any student with headlice was removed from school until they could prove that it had been effectively treated. This prevented it spreading to more than a couple of students at a time.

when I was in elemetary school( about a hundred years ago) I remember the teachers would inspect our hair with their hands, parting the hair and looking closly. They would go from student to student looking for lice. All they were doing was spreading it throughout the class with their hands. ;)

  hygeine or lack of.....  
The lack of hygeine doesn't come into it as I said before, the lice prefer clean hair & can only be spread by direct hair to hair contact as they can't jump.

They also prefer long hair to short hair so all the girls with long hair are the worst culprits for spreading them, especially when they sit ith their heads inches apart gossiping about boys like they are known to do.

  they shaved my girlfriends hair off!  
we were 9 years old at the time and she had lovely long hair but was all of a sudden there was a lice infection and hers was too long to treat and they cut it shorter than mine! Broke my heart.
