head lice

Loyal reader Ronisha writes:

"Hey,

I was reading your blog and you mentioned only straight hair getting lice, which is untrue. I work for one of the top lice places here in NYC. I'm African American, and although not to many cases are African American, I can assure you that we do get lice."

Continued...

"I've seen the kinkiest hair get lice and it's a complete pain to get out. The big misconception is that lice jumps from head to head, which is entirely false.

You get lice via head to head contact as long as you have hair and a bug crawls in it. That's how it's contracted. I've seen black kids get it with cases from 1-2 weeks to full infestations of 6-8 weeks. Hygiene also plays a part as well.

People think washing their hair will prevent lice infestation but that's untrue again. I've gone to schools checking children of all ethnicities as well as teachers wearing weaves, and low and behold, there is lice in their hair weave.

Lice is very easy to contract. It's simple as getting on a plane, hugging someone who has a bug in their hair, getting in a cab, or trying on a hat in a store, which here in NYC has become a huge no-no.

Although the child's hair may be doused in coconut oil, it may be a little harder for her to get lice, but it can still happen. Hope this helps."

    What is a lice place? ? I've never had lice before.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Chile these photos of these bugs I can not .... I freaking hate bugs.. if it has more than four legs I freaking loose it ... all the limbs and whickers ugh https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/22fef3303bc6ab1d0ade03e86581e8287830b0c04d1eab12636d837090356b65.gif

    treatment center for lice.... it looks like a salon from what Ive seen

  • Buttercup

    Lil Butter had it twice since some lady at his day care/ after school care kept sending her kids to day care with nits (the eggs). Someone called social services on her, and she received a visit and 3 follow up visits :coffee:

    Well your ass was the one hollering it was no such a thing.

  • hottlanta

    Wow so you say you are black and that makes us believe what you say. I ain't never heard or seen not one African in the jungles of Africa get head lice. We wasn't talking about a weave we are talking about getting head lice because you are just nasty. I wanna talk about something interesting and real like Roland Martin giving tight-butt Larry Elder a true verbal beat down at the debate they had last week. I thought he was gonna cry. He almost went to the altar and became a Democrat again. Now that was a debate.

  • Fendi aka Erin Blockabitch

    I was going to ask what a "lice place" is myself. If you work there, you should know what it's called. IJS.

  • Incog-knee-gress

    You go on down to that coconut oil hair post. Cause bay-beee.

    Was this story really necessary?

  • TransHuman

    Lice can't survive in our temperature hair. If u do get it. It comes from neanthdral breeds. We dont carry that recessive gene. Even though this lady want to believe what the white folks say. If you get a few black kids with bugs it jump from mixing or playing in white folks head. ...

  • nicelyput32

    What's going to be the next post? Ringworms??

  • Fendi aka Erin Blockabitch

    There's a lot going on in here. Self-hatred, kids are under attack, shameless promotion of Donald Chump, "lice places" and blog beef are running rampant.

    Someone's Bible must've been used as firewood today, or the Holy Spirit has been replaced with the evil spirit. Smh

  • Incog-knee-gress

    I didn't join in on the lice debate down yonder. But back in my early work life at Kindercare...lil black kids indeed had hair bugs

  • Teresa Uriel

    LoL...hey...we gotta do what we gotta do to survive

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    They have actual salons for this see clip https://youtu.be/AZu2Mx87rAM

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    While it's totally not far fetch, there aren't many cases. Some Black folks like the ones up top just got to be with the whites don't they! They get lice so should we! #noliceforblacks #imstickingtoit

  • Fendi aka Erin Blockabitch

    I'm sorry you find your actions humorous. It's not imperative that you disrespect people in order to "survive," especially when they're living productive lives and not bothering you in the process.

    It's pointless for you to memorize and quote scripture when you're not applying it to your everyday life.

  • Teresa Uriel

    Ameeeeeen!! Halleluuuu

  • LibraGirlonly

    No one said black people could not get head lice but it's way more common in European hair!!!! Gesh Sandra I thought you were a damn nurse. You should know better.

  • nucynu25

    I have nothing to say abt this ..

  • Buttercup

    Kindercare....Lil Butter was going to La Petite when he got it. I think it was from the sleeping cots. He was supposed to cover his with a crib sheet, but who knows if he actually did.

  • nucynu25

    Girl, am starting to Sandra is a C N A with a certification from Everidge ?

  • LibraGirlonly

    HEAD LICE is more common in oily greasy hair. LICE thrive in that type of hair period!!'

  • jeniefrumdabloc™
  • Genia

    When i was coming up, I have always heard it is harder for them to sustain in African american hair, because back in the day, greasing our scalp and hair wasn't frowned upon.

  • Fendi aka Erin Blockabitch

    I was taught not to share combs and brushes, food and beverages, etc. Kids today need a million and one vaccines and doctors because of crap like this. It was also stated that people had to be careful taking "ussies" (pics with others) because when your head is next to someone else's head, their head bugs can jump into your mane.

    Yuck.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    The big misconception is that lice jumps from head to head, which is entirely false.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    I'm clearly having a slow moment because this appears to be saying the same thing. The lice jumps from head to head. What am I missing? I don't even care about this shyt....nevermind.

  • Incog-knee-gress

    Told yall I was sick as SHAT those years I worked there. My daddy was like You gonna die tryna have a career in early childhood development. I never got lice. Few of my black 4 year olds did during my years there did tho. Those chain daycares supposedly so much better. They are worse.

  • Fendi aka Erin Blockabitch

    There's more to the Word than the Commandments. You don't have the authority to attack commenters if/because they're single mothers. That's called JUDGMENT. If God didn't want them to get pregnant, they wouldn't be mothers. God has a plan for their lives and their children's lives. Go live according to YOUR purpose and leave people alone.

    Forget this I just came to make a reply on the coconut oil story. The reason it was offenseive is because the girl didn't have any in her hair the teacher assumed it was her

  • missmiami305

    A black girl had lice lasts school year in my daughters class. Even the teacher was surprised. Guess lice are evolving lol. Everytime you turned around their was an outbreak. Nasty ass parents would send their kids without telling the school.

  • Teresa Uriel

    all they gotta do is leave me alone

  • Fendi aka Erin Blockabitch

    You're unstable is what you are. Notice, I didn't @ you. You appeared in my replies. That signifies guilt. You know you're dead wrong and your conscience got the best of you.

    Bye.

  • L.T.L. Since 2007

    All I know about lice is one time my aunt brought this dude over to my grandma house and grandma wanted to know why old dude kept scratching his tail. Dude said he had a small case of body lice. WTF?!?!? Mama Peaches cussed that man and my aunt out. Told both of them not to bring their crabby asses back to her house. Nasty bastards.

    Tis all I know about "lice"

  • Teresa Uriel

    meh

    little harder for her to get lice, but it can still happen. Hope this

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    IT didn't help because no one cares and the original story had nothing to do with lice.

    ... I think I'm hangry.

    I've never had head lice? Pubic lice, or crotch crickets as @Alicia calls them I've had plenty of times? allegedly?

  • Buttercup

    Lil Butter didn't even have a cold when he went to Nana (home day care). He went to a facility and got pinkeye, strep, the flu, and head lice twice. I seriously considered moving closer to my hometown so my aunt could watch him. I was terrified by the hand, foot, mouth stuff. Thankfully he never got that.

    Dear Reader who wrote the email,

    Hello. How are you? Blessed I hope. Listen, what did this have to do with anything today? Or were you randomly telling Sandra about head lice? And why bother to mention the coconut oil? I am confused by this entire thing. And you hoped that helped what?! I mean....maybe I'm the slow one....God Bless though

  • Incog-knee-gress

  • Buttercup

    I washed Lil Butter's hair in the tub each night and put oil on it. It still didn't help.

    Wut the awards were started again by a Rose we read for filth these days. It never happened after that. I think the whole process is cursed.

    I always discovered it in the early stages. I only removed one louse (bug) from his head each time. He only had a handful of nits (eggs). Since he has been old enough to take a bath, I've washed his hair and oiled it afterwards. It still didn't ward off any lice.

    I'm sorry that happened to her. Is your daughter mixed race? Does she have straight hair?

  • Buttercup

    Yep. I spent all night researching how to get rid of it. The second time was a breeze. I should open a salon, because I didn't even have to use the harsh shampoos. I just slathered conditioner on his wet hair and went through it with a fine-tooth comb. I washed all linens, put stuffed animals in double bagged trash bags and placed them in the freezer for a week, vacuumed all furniture and floors. If I recall, folks made a grip "treating" people and homes for it. Let me see....

  • Buttercup

    Yeah, the kids that were responsible for spreading it were the niece and nephews of one of the teachers. They knew and didn't inform me nor did they make those children stay out until they were fully treated. It was eventually handled though :coffee:

  • Blaque Mahogany

    It's not about race. The believe used to be that it was more difficult, not impossible, for blacks to get lice because of the way we maintain our hair.

    Head lice is attracted to oily scrap not dry scalp.

  • Teresa Uriel

    yeah that too!

  • SameoleJ

    It has been tested and proven that blacks getting lice is very rare, due to the shape of our hair follicles (Theirs are circular and ours are oval) and the oils we use in our hair that A. Suffocate the lie and B. Prevent them from "gripping" the hair shaft and slipping.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    rare but can happen ... I have actually seen it with my own two eyes ... so true

  • Alicia.Ashe

    Oh my

  • Teresa Uriel

    the only language they understand is attack attack attack

  • SameoleJ

    But you were NOT totally incorrect!! And they need to let Google be their friend. Yes, we can get it, however lice are not as attracted to our hair due to a few factors....the oval shape makes it hard for them to hold on and the oils we use suffocate them and also make it hard for them to hold on.

    If this were an open post, I would ask if yall heard about the Detroit woman who decorated her yard with images of the black men and women that have been killed by police officers. Literally a half dozen black dummies sprawled across her lawn with red paint splattered on their bodies.

    But it isn't. So back to the lice conversation. I've never had lice. Hope it satys that way...probably will since I'm one of the few blacks that still use grease once a week.

    Yep, we can get them, but we are not their top choice...too much work to stay in our hair!! #LAZYBUGS

  • Aku

    Sorry to burst your bubble. I'm african, born and raised, and most definitely my school mates and I had at one point or another lice in our hair. Jungle or otherwise. This was was one of the reasons so many parents kept our hair cut very short or chose to perm.

    I swear I sit and holler some days. When they fight each other is when I have to get in the tub and light a candle or lie in the bed curled up like a kitten because it's such a good read.

    I SAW AN OLD "FAMILY" PIC ON THE BOOK YESTERDAY...SNOOP, FIEND, C-MURDER, SILKK (FINE ARSE)...MIA X...EVERYBODY! WHEN MUSIC WAS REAL...LE WEEP

    YALL HAD MY ARSE CRACKING UP MY LAST SEMESTERS IN COLLEGE...I MISS READING SOME OF THE OG'S

  • barbeez

    Usually black people don't have lice because we add oil to our hair and heat. They never checked the black kids when I was in school ...but that was a loooooonnnng time ago. Now, if you don't add oil to your hair....well you may be dealing with some lice.

  • Wuts got Petty Davis Eyes..

    Low E..It was a hoot the shyt that would go down or the series of funny crap that would happen LOL..Glad you here to add flava!

  • Low E. TUH!

    :CHEER:

  • barbeez

    That's why I can't lie with a pale face. They have diseases and problems that we don't have to deal with. You see how they nearly wiped out the Native Americans with smallpox and other pale faces illnesses.

  • Nina Ross

    Fleas like fur:/

  • Rain

    I know in Texas students are no longer sent home because of lice. I believe they should be sent home and not allowed to return until after it is gone.

  • barbeez

    Might as well. I got ringworm on my leg from guess what... a pale face. He used my lotion bottle at work claiming his hands were itchy. Next thing you know I had a patch on my leg. Thank god it was a mild case and I could hide it while it healed. I live alone and my extended family and friends kept their distance.

    Mines goes to there and she had pinworms two weeks ago. I was pissed. I called them and they bleached it down and sent home letters. I said this yall fault.

  • Lisa daniels

    Mines had 4 or 5 ear infections when she started daycare and strep earlier this year. She never got sick before. She was a healthy baby and breastfed, so I just knew she was good. Daycare f some kids up.

    Somebody tell all the pro-blacks this, please, they seem to think black people are immune to everything. Trump in 2016.....

    I don't know 1 authentic black person that has caught fleas:/

  • Nina Ross

    Hair & Fur are 2 very different things

  • Allihave2say

    I send the daycare kids home. Sorry not sorry. Hygiene is a hue issue in daycare. A lot of parents do.no bathe and wash the hair of their kids as often as they should. A lice infestation is just as bad as roaches.

  • Allihave2say

    What about bags of braid hair being infested with critters that get in the kids hair. If I see a lot of scratching I'm checking black, white or plaid.

  • Allihave2say

    I Saw it.

    Carol is this you.??from the coconut oil?

  • TransHuman

    Yes, tell it to our lost brothers and sisters that put whites before their own people. Its sickening. We might can't save this generation or the one after us but we can really start with kids 7 and under.

    LIES YOU TELL IN MY BEST TAMAR VOICE. SHOW ME ONE BLACK PERSON THEN I WILL BELIEVE AND I'M TALKING STRAIGHT BLACK NOT BI-RACIAL WITH THAT MARIAH CAREY HAIR, NOT BELIEVING IT SORRY.

  • http://totallifechanges.com/PurTEA VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    Exactly!!!! Lice don't typically like greasy hair though . They can't move around that's why black kids didn't get get lice as much. They also will get in kids hoods at school and travel ?. Yuck!!! Body lice, hair lice, bed bugs, roaches are all demons first cousins!!!

  • http://totallifechanges.com/PurTEA VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    They don't like grease..... how can they move? Do they electric slide? I have seen a few boys with lice there hair was dry though.

  • http://totallifechanges.com/PurTEA VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    Done ????

  • Much Too

    White folks hair is just like fur. Dogs get fleas which is equivalent to lice! Point blank period, Becky with the good fur. There I fixed it for you guys. Our natural hair can get matted like wool, or coils(knotted or intertwined)!! The fur texture allow lice to attach itself on the strands of white folks hair. I had an eexperience with lice while cleaning a patient's teeth. The white female doctor looked at me with anger and said "why did you react like that, black people can'tget lice. It was a million bugs jumping in the a that white female's hair. Made my skin crawl. Yeah I'm just a 5 year sandra rose lurker. This is my first time ccommenting, and most likely my last! This is some foolish shat!!

  • ArDnAhC45

    Jeffrey, Jeffrey, Jeffrey...That's all I got.

  • Genia W-m

    Yes, African textured hair can attract lice too. However, it usually doesn't occur often because of the oil products used. If someone doesn't use oil based products then they have a high chance of getting it. With so many products now many may not be oil based. Hygiene is very important too.
    Lice crawl too so no sharing coat hooks in school or sharing combs or brushes either.

  • ImNotThatGrl

    When Bob Marley died they found multiple species of lice in his hair - race has nothing to do with lice

    It's so confusion .... that's my grandson !!!! ????? I say What???? Confusing??? ????

  • Jayde da Blade

    Welp id say ask a person in cosmetology.
    They will tell you the hair shaft is different.
    Round vs flat.
    That difference makes it hard for lice to live in black hair.
    The grease tends to also make an environment the bugs don't like.
    Its not typical for black hair to pick up and keep lice, but I'm sure there are exceptions to every rule.

  • stanley

    Lol Black men don't get lice. Well they might if they wear female hairstyles. I keep a bald fade.
