When going to a movie theater
When sitting in a movie theater, plane, train, or bus seat, lay some plastic down first to avoid contact with lice ridden seats.
Brush your car seats
Brush your car seats regularly with a lint remover (especially if you know children in your area have had lice in recent weeks).
Place clothes in a hot dryer
Put all of your children's belongings in a hot dryer for at least 20 minutes after every sleepover or overnight camp experience.
Ponytails and French braids
Keep long hair in French braids and ponytails during a lice outbreak. The best way to prevent getting lice is to avoid head to head contact, so do what you can to avoid hair from flying around.
Previously worn clothing
When getting clothes from a used clothing store (or even your school's lost and found), be sure to put the items in a hot dryer for at least 20 minutes before using them.
Avoid trying on hats in stores! Don't share baseball helmets or other sporting supplies if at all possible.
Be Proactive! Watch for nits, especially during high-peak lice time (spring/summer and right after school goes back in session each fall or when temperatures reach 75-99 degrees).
Don't re-infect yourself
Be sure to treat all sofas, rugs, bed linens and coats when an infestation does occur to eliminate re-infecting yourself.
