I used to be a hair dresser…lice absolutely HATE dirty hair. They love hair that has been washed every day or every other day because they can stick their eggs to the hair shaft easier than a head that has not been washed for 3 or 4 days.
The school got it here and my kids and a few others were the only ones who did not and NEVER have been infected. I do not wash my kids hair more than twice a week in summer and once a week in spring and winter unless they are filthy.
