Can you get lice in January or February? Absolutely. Head lice are around 12 months of the year. Contrary to popular belief, Head Lice are not spread by helmets, or even hats. Lice have highly specialized claws that hydraulically clamp onto the hair shaft as soon as they feel anything moving, such as taking off a ski helmet or a hat. In fact, lice can’t survive for more than a few hours off a human scalp because they get cold, hungry and dried out. Therefore lice hang on until a nice warm scalp is touching and it is safe to crawl to directly from host A to host B.
