Headlice: let’s evict these uninvited “guests”

Natural beauty treatments

These parasites can affect anyone and are not a sign of poor hygiene

Unfortunately the presence of headlice today is mistakenly considered a serious sign of poor hygiene, that is why talking about their presence on our head (or on that of our children) automatically becomes a “taboo subject”.

Once this myth is debunked and we make it clear that headlice can infest anyone, regardless of sanitary conditions, we can concentrate on concrete aspects.

Is it possible to prevent headlice?

And what can we do once they have unfortunately settled in our kid’s hair (or our own’s)?

First of all, let’s clearly state that there are no miracle cures that can prevent the occurrence of these pests with absolute certainty, but there are definitely good practices and special products against headlice that may help limit or fix the problem.

In addition to the usual chemical treatments, often implemented in case of widespread infestations, natural lotions containing essential oils such as neem oil or Quassia amara oil can also provide valid support in combating these parasites.

A regular use of these natural cosmetics offers significant assistance in protecting your scalp from external aggressions and creating an unfavourable environment to the proliferation of headlice.

The 2 basic rules to eradicate headlice and prevent their recurrence

Once scalp infestation is ascertained, you should adopt the following measures:

  • Comb you hair from roots to tips with a fine-toothed comb (possibly of steel), after applying a conditioner or a specific lotion. This technique, also valid for the diagnosis, if practised consistently 3-4 times a week, allows removing the eggs (called nits) as well as dead lice and resolving the “problem” within 1 or 2 weeks;
  • Be careful not to create vicious circles, such that the infestation recurs because the "treated" subject has transmitted parasites without realising it. There is indeed a risk that the lice come back because transmitted within the same family unit (or school / kindergarten).


It is good to remember that the hated pediculosis (or infestation caused by the presence of lice) can spread by direct contact (e.g. by sharing the same pillow or, simply, through head-to-head contact).
Therefore, unlike what many people believe, it is absolutely not true that lice spread by "jumping" from one head to another or that are transmitted from animals to humans (lice in animals cannot be transmitted to humans and vice versa).

From the above, it is understandable why the spread of head lice is more common in environments where there are more opportunities for contact: gyms, schools, kindergartens, oratories etc.

It is therefore important to carry out a regular mutual check of the scalp and avoid direct or indirect "contact situations" (using the same combs, hats, headphones etc.).
Only in this way, you will be certain that once you eradicate lice from the heads of your children, they will not move onto yours, to finally return, at the earliest opportunity, on those of children.
