How Are Lice Spread

Some people say I got head lice lying on the beach, sitting on a chair at the movie theatre, or wearing my friends hat. Those are very unlikely ways of spreading head lice. Head lice are spread almost exclusively with head to head contact. With one strand of hair touching another. And the reason is lice don’t jump, they don’t fly, they don’t like being in other places other than on a head of hair. And so if they do change hosts its just hair to hair, head to head contact. Not by sharing combs or hat or those other types of things.
