    You piqued our interest. Why are adults less inclined to develop head lice?

      Good question. Head lice are highly sensitive to temperature, humidity and light. It turns out that children have 10 times more hair shafts per square centimeter than an adult, and their hair is also finer. This results in children’s scalps being warmer, darker and more humid than adult scalps: A perfect habitat for lice. The only mode of head lice transmission is direct head-to-head contact. Children are much more physical and cuddly with each other, giving head lice greater, and more frequent, opportunities to walk from one warm scalp to the next.
