Thanks for your comment. Your friend will be angry if she know about this. I think washing regularly with some good anti-lice shampoo will work. So it's up to you, gift her a good anti-lice shampoo as soon as possible.

I've been searching about head lice, suddenly I arrived to this post. Very true. Thanks to this post I now have an idea on how to deal with dominant people. I enjoyed reading, though I have nothing to deal with this.

Arghh..by just looking at that pic...I feel the sudden itchy on my scalp! OH my. Very nice pic.
You can get head lice when you come in close contact with a person who has lice, or by touching their clothing or bedding. Better have a Head lice treatment.

Head lice do seem to be on the rise around the world, and you could attribute this to the growing population and possibly even climate changes. Head lice cannot jump or fly, they are transmitted by direct human contact.
