How do head lice spread?
Lice are found everywhere. They feel at home in both clean and dirty hair alike.
Usually directly from one head to another, while playing or during sports. That's why children with long hair run a higher risk. But beware; lice can also be transmitted via a scarf, a hat or a brush.
Nits (lice eggs and the remains of lice eggs) don't move. Only lice move.
That is where they find lots of children together. Playing children come into close contact with each other which is why they are affected by lice more often than adults.
