What’s Ticking You Off? 3 Reasons You’ve Contracted Head Lice

It doesn’t matter how well your day started. The moment you’re happy about it, something is bound to go wrong. You can call it Murphy’s Law or you can call it a stroke of bad luck. From spilling coffee on your brand new shirt, to your dog, Max, tearing your work documents, the things that make us angry are the things we least expect to happen. Just like head lice. One moment you’re chatting with coworkers and drinking coffee, the next thing you know, a thick, brown, tiny critter is crawling on your desk. But before we get into that, the biggest mystery is: how did this annoying little parasite make its way to your head? You know you can’t contract lice. After all, your head is cleaner than a box of Kleenex. You take a bath every day! But unfortunately, it doesn’t work that way. There are a number of reasons people contract lice. Here are a three reasons you possibly have too:

You Hung Out With A Lice Victim

We’re always looking for ways to take the best selfie for the ‘Gram. And that’s how your head comes into contact with a lice victim, and the rest you know, is history. Head lice have a funny way of showing up unexpectedly and they’re faster than the Flash when it comes to breeding. It isn’t until you have a full-blown infestation that you realize what’s actually going on. The skin condition you thought flared up during winters turned out to be an annoying critter nestling in your luscious locks. But hey, it can happen to anyone, so avoid victim-shaming because your friend probably doesn’t even know they have lice! In fact, a lot of people confuse nits with dandruff.

You Brushed Off the Risks…And Your Hair

There’s a reason why you should carry your own comb your brush with you at all times. If you’ve used a lice victim’s hairbrush, the chances are, you’ve contracted them too! Yikes! Lice can get stuck inside hairbrushes and they can survive 3 days without human blood. That’s plenty of time to move onto a new victim.
