One in ten school children catch head lice every year, and despite how common it is, lice remain stigmatized and clouded with myths.
Looking to get rid of head lice? Anahad O’Connor, from New York Times suggests using Cetaphil. In a study involving 133 kids with lice, the subjects treated their condition by “coating the hair with Cetaphil, combing it, then blow-drying it until it hardens and shampooing it out eight hours later.” The treatment had a 95% success rate, when it was carried out once a week for three weeks.
