No. Head lice live close to the scalp so cutting your child’s hair will not make any difference. The best you can do is to immediately treat your child. Read more about Lyclear treatments.
Head lice have nothing to do with hygiene. Anyone can get head lice, although they are more common in children. Head lice are spread through head contact or through the sharing of personal belongings (scarf, cycling helmet, etc.). Young children tend to have closer contact. That is why the primary school is a typical place where head lice are more easily spread. At any time, most schools will have a few children with active living head lice. Head lice do not discriminate between short or long, or clean or dirty hair.
Before starting to use Lyclear, it’s important to check the hair of each family member thoroughly, preferably in daylight. Use an anti-lice comb to check dry hair for head lice and treat all those with head lice the same day, in order to avoid re-infestation.
