We've been doing some head lice mythbusting on MFM after battling the inevitable re-infestation of the new term (back to school - a lice's favourite sentence).
We've revealed the truth behind those white lies our mums used to tell (and we still do!) such as lice only like clean hair...
But we'd like to hear more myths and rumours you've heard about the pesky critters! What's the best lice myth you've heard? And which ones do you believe?
And you never know, there might be a few little goodies around the office for the best ones...;-)

When I was little I got them and at the time you had to attend a clinic to be treated.The nurse desperate for a reason I had nits had the nerve to ask my Mum if she brushed or combed my hair.My Mum replied yes both,every morning,every night.The nurse then replied that was why I had nits.You don't need to brush and comb.She was a nurse?I think my Mum was politer than I would have been.
I've lost count of people who say they die when they're not on a human.I've seen live ones the next day after a session with the Nitty Gritty comb,so they go straight down the sink or toilet now.
