Staying at home
Since we live in Southern California most of our summer time is spent outside or in the water. We are lucky enough to live by the ocean and have these beautiful beaches and many people might choose to spend the summer taking advantage of our beautiful nature surroundings. But what about head lice? Many think that the lice would be killed if they spent enough time in the water. Unfortunately, that is not the case as head lice can be under water for more than 6 hours! Even if we were able to drawn the bugs, the nits (lice eggs) will still be there. Those nits like to stick to the hair like glue which is why you may need a professional to help remove them from the hair.
