Can Men Get Head Lice?

Men get head lice

The simple truth is that anyone can get head lice. These tiny little head critters love all humans equally and do not have a preference.  They are programmed to colonise new hosts.  The fertilized female louse will run down the hair shaft and holding on with on claw and the other out stretched will wait for another head of hair to be close enough for them to crawl onto the new hair.

You may read that they are put off by men's pheromones, if this was true we would all just go out and buy some pheromone sprays.  Men have less chance of getting head lice as on the whole their hair is shorter and generally speaking the majority of mums deal with head lice and have more chance of getting as in some cases they have longer hair.  Though we treat our fair share of men at NitNOT and many of the dad's.


Head lice adore affectionate families who cuddle, snuggle and hug.  As this makes other heads easier to conquer.


It is always best to check everyone's hair, if head lice are found in one member, the chances are fairly high that it will be transmitted in the first week. Simple preventions are to keep long hair tied back and do not share hair brushes.
