A customer question about head lice.

Dear Confused,

When it comes to being unsure about the spread of head lice, you’re not alone and, in fact, questions about lice solutions and how to get rid of lice are among the most frequently asked.

Common Misconceptions About Head Lice

There are a number of rumors out there when it comes to head lice and exactly how lice spreads:

  • Myth #1– Head lice have a long lifespan and can survive for extended periods of time.
  • Myth #2– Head lice can fly from one person to another.
  • Myth #3– Head lice can jump extremely long distances in order to find a host.

The truth about head lice is that none of the myths above are true. Head lice don’t have back legs or wings and they can’t live for more than 24 hours without a host. Simply put, the only way to spread head lice is if there’s direct head-to-head or hair-to-hair contact between someone with head lice and someone without. They can also occasionally be spread through sharing towels, combs, hats, or pillows.
