Another voicemail has been sent to parents of students at a Calabasas Middle School alerting them of a head lice outbreak. There have been many local schools affected by head lice.
Although head lice pose no real health threats, it is a nuisance!
They will not go away on it's own and must be manually removed.
Lice have become immune to OTC products, so it may be best to go natural with a really fine spiral-toothed comb-such as the "terminator."
These products can be purchased from a local "nit-picker," My Hair Helpers natural lice removal company.
Make sure that two treatments are done between 4-5 days of eachother.
Comb on wet hair every other day for two weeks, until no evidence of lice or nits is found in hair.
