Can Ski Helmets Transmit Lice?

shutterstock_175177964 Hitting the slopes with the kids this school vacation week?  Worried that renting a ski helmet might expose your child to Head Lice?  You needn’t be.  Head Lice are not spread by helmets, or even hats.  Lice are able to hang on tight to the hair shaft when you are taking helmets and hats on and off.  Lice can’t survive long away from a human scalp because they get cold, hungry and dried out.  So lice hang on until a nice warm scalp is very nearby and it is safe to travel to a new host.
