how do they spread?

11 / 02 / 2020

Head lice pass from one person to another during direct head-to-head contact. This is because lice cannot fly, jump or swim and most often are transferred to another head by climbing from the hair of an infected person to the hair of someone else. Head lice only affect humans and cannot be passed on to animals or caught from them.

Contrary to popular belief, they have nothing to do with dirty hair and can be contracted by even the cleanest people.
