How can I prevent Headlice and Nits?

There is no guaranteed method of preventing a head lice infection.

However, there are several precautions that can be taken to minimise the risk and prevent a head lice and nit infestation:

 check hair regularly for headlice with a special fine toothed headlice or nit comb

 check hair regularly for nits which indicate live head lice.

 avoid physical hair contact with a person who has head lice

 tie long hair up or braid to minimise hair to hair contact

 do not share combs, brushes, hats, scarves, ribbons, or other personal items

 examine members of your family who have had close contact with a person infected with head lice.
