cleaning brushes after lice. What do I do with all of our hairbrushes, combs, hair elastics, hair bands and scrunchies after we have head lice? Do I have to throw them all out? No you do not need to throw all of you hair brushes, combs, etc away. Why? Because it is very unlikely that head lice, or their nits, would ever be found in brushes, combs, elastics, etc. Lice are no longer killed by pesticides. Lice have developed resistance to pesticides.

cleaning brushes after lice. Head lice like one place and one place only in the universe and that is the human scalp. Lice are loathe to leave a living breathing warm food source like a human scalp, unless there is a nice warm potential host scalp right next to it.
cleaning brushes after lice. So lice are not going to lay eggs on elastics, or scrunchies. Lice are not going to voluntarily crawl onto a plastic hairbrush, they can’t hold on to plastic, they would fall right off. All you need to do is to make sure that all of the hair is cleaned out of your brushes, combs and elastics. Then seal them in a zip-lock freezer bag and store them in the freezer overnight for just one night. That’s it!
