 “Preventing lice is much easier than managing an outbreak, which can be a stressful, time consuming and an expensive experience for both parents and children,” said Risa Barash, founder of Fairy Tales Hair Care.  “Outbreaks can impact entire schools, play groups, athletic/dance facilities and daycare centers.” Fortunately, following a few simple guidelines can help deter the problem.  “Don’t share hats, helmets, brushes and combs and do weekly head checks; use it as a nice time to talk to your child,” recommends Barash.
