HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. - Aug. 5, 2019 - PRLog -- Words that strike fear in a parent's heart: "Your child has head lice – please come pick them up!". HUGE 'yuck factor'! Pam Skinner, owner of Picky Pam at the Beach (a lice treatment salon in Huntington Beach, CA) explains why Back-To-School is such a busy time.

Why so busy during Back-To-School? Kids touch heads when they play, camps, sleepovers, family get-togethers, travel. "Lice is spread by 'head to head' contact. Whenever kids and teens are playing and having fun…that's when they are touching heads and spreading lice!" Skinner suggests 5 simple steps to deal with a lice outbreak:

1. Check everyone in the family (part hair, look around ears, nape of the neck, & crown of the head).  If you are not sure what to look for, get a free professional check at Picky Pam at the Beach, or watch their free online tutorials.

2. Don't buy lice shampoo at the pharmacy - they are not effective and the combs are terrible!

3. Apply an enzyme-based, lice killing product. They are natural, digestive enzymes and work beautifully to destroy hatched lice. Skinner recommends Coco Loco All Natural Leave-In Lice Treatment ( It has been used on over 30,000 customers in her salon.

4. At home, pillow cases and towels can go in the dryer. Pull hair out of brushes/combs, and put them in a zip lock in the freezer for 6 hours, or in the dishwasher. You get lice from a head, not the house.

5."Once a Week - Take a Peek". Use the NitNabber or Nit Free Lice comb. (Don't try to find lice with your eyes, they move quickly and eggs blend in with hair).

Back-To-School is high season for lice. Did you know only HALF of the population will itch? It is an allergic reaction to the saliva of the bug, but only 50% of people itch! So many times, kids and teens could have a severe case of head lice...and not feel a thing?
