You would think that, wouldn't you? Unfortunately Google revealed otherwise. So far, I seem to not have contracted anything, but I have four kids in the house and everyone uses our hairbrushes / lounges in our bed / etc. And honestly treating the household is as bad as anything else.
We literally just went through this with three of them - 50% of our household - and thought after three Cetaphil treatments each, we had wiped them out. Then the oldest girl found lice in her hair again last night, and my husband spent two hours combing it out, treating her, etc, etc, etc.
This morning her brother told us he used her brush, because he couldn't find his own. WHAT are you thinking you KNOW SHE HAS LICE???
The girls don't like being blow dried, but maybe this would encourage them to give in for a few weeks...
