Apparently, Spring Break will leave you with a lot more than alcohol poisoning and sunburns.
A Northern California head bug professional (?) is advising anyone who had fun over Spring Break to start checking your head for lice. The logic being that time off leads to vacations and play dates, which in turn leads to head lice infestations.
"Head lice are spread through head-to-head contact. Lice don't jump or fly, so you actually have to touch heads," says Marcy McQuillan, owner of Nitless Noggins Between vacation selfies and sleepovers, there's a lot of head touching."
"We see a big increase in head lice during spring break," she confirms.
If you do have head lice, McQuillan recommends pulling long hair back with a rubber band and avoid sharing pillows, hair-bands, and of course, selfies.
"We get regular check-ups at the doctor and dentist, and we really need to get regular professional head checks, too," she says.
Hope that girls trip to Mexico was worth it.
