Hey there,

I'm not sure how long it takes for you to notice if you have lice. It may take one or two lice to start laying the eggs and that might take a few days before you notice any itching.

Perhaps as a precaution and you can buy a nit comb (a really fine tooth comb) and after you have washed your hair, you can use the comb to catch any nits that you might've picked up. If you catch any early with the comb, it will help to control the nits and you'll be free of them soon. If you don't pick up any with the comb, then you may not have picked them up

Hey there Andrea,
I am glad to hear you hadn't caught lice. It can be really tough if you did and I can imagine the added stress with curly hair. Also, if you want you can spray rosemary on your neck, just a little bit. The smell of rosemary repels lice and since it's going around in your school (or between friends) it may help to take prevention measures.
