Up-do Hairstyles May Lower Risk of Head Lice


Whether your little girl has short, medium or long hair it is always a good idea to pull it up into a style that prevents her hair from brushing up against others. This is a quick and easy way to help prevent lice. When children are young and attend schools, play on playgrounds and attend activities with several other children they are much more prone to lice infestations. Why not make sure your little one is not as susceptible with these easy, fun and adorable styles?


Style #1 – The Diagonal French Braid

Step 1-Start by combing hair to remove any tangles.

Step 2- From the top right of the head, divide hair diagonally into three even sections. Clamp off each section so that you can work with the hair separately.

Step 3- Take the first section and starting from the top of the part, french braid it down to the end and secure with an elastic.

Step 4- Now take the middle section of hair and french braid it down, securing with an elastic.

Step 5- Repeat with the last section of hair.

Step 6- Now you can choose to connect the end of all three french braids into one large pony tail, and style as desired. Or, you can leave all the braids individually and braid them to the ends, or leave in ponytails. The way you finish it off can vary greatly and give you a lot of fun options to choose from. Spray hair lightly to hold into place.

Step 7- This style is really great for taking out the next day and having an amazing volume to her hair.
