Stocking caps equal lice!

Oh the weather outside is frightful, but the lice is so delightful… Wait! That’s not right! Okay, that is not exactly how the song goes, but it is probably a more accurate rendition. Yes, unfortunately these beautiful winter months often bring with it an influx of head lice cases. An often culprit is when your kiddo or their friends are actually being good and sharing. Unfortunately, what they are sharing is their lice ridden stocking caps. We all know that sharing hats is a big no-no, but when it comes to the cold weather the need to play often supersedes that well-known rule. But those stocking caps are not the only offenders. The increase in family gatherings during the winter months will bring with it those unwanted friends and that lice soon becomes a family affair.Read more >

America's Favorite Beards Get Head Lice

That’s right, not even the fellas of Duck Dynasty can avoid these pesky parasites! To be fair, those full heads of long hair and bushy beards are a louse’s dream. Last Wednesday’s episode chronicled the guys’ head lice debacle after Jep brought a head lice infested hat into the office. Was this staged for a captivating show storyline? Who’s to say?

Well, I guess that depends on how much money we’re talking… Not to mention, working for the makers of Licefreee® does take the edge off of my fear.
