Part of the Lice Chicks experience is also the in-depth consultationand education about basically everything you didn’t know youneeded to know about lice. For example, they like clean and dirtyhair. They favor certain blood types. They can’t jump across a roomonto your head. Lice need a live “host” so they won’t live on yoursofa for months after you’ve sat on it; they will dehydrate and diewithin 12-24 hours. There is a wealth of information to arm yourselfwith on the Lice Chicks’ website, particularlyon the FAQ tab.
