Do you take your kid to the barber... when he has lice??

I spent mothers day killing lice on my 7 year old.  He has longer hair. I was telling it to a friend and she said she dont "waste time" on that. She just take her son to the barber and get a buzz cut, wash his hair back home and he is done. Lice is gone!

 I ask if she tells the barber about the lice and she says he usually didnt even notice. They "fall with the hair" . Do you do this? I was disgusted and she thought I was being silly.

Well in my state, hair dressers are not allowed to cut someone's hair who has lice.

 I dnt think thats the best idea.....well maybe you could cut his hair at home and then do those treatments to kill the lice.

Ewww... no. I would buy clippers and do it myself, but not a barber. My sister is a hairdresser and once had to tell a woman she had lice. She said the woman broke into tears. My sister felt bad, but could not and would not cut the woman's hair.

 I wouldn't take him to a barber, I would just buzz it myself.

When I asked if the barber didn't complain she said she didnt told him ans he didnt notice. I am just grossed out. Can't believe she does this

My oldest is 13 never had lice. Not even this time but this little fella has gotten it twice this year. Got rid of it. He just passed his follow up check up by mamma and daddy. Found no lice today. Yay!
