Natural Hair + SoCozy Boo! Lice Prevention 3-Step System

September 30, 2015

Most moms think that if you are black or have natural hair that you are not a candidate for getting lice.  WRONG!  I remember bringing home notes in elementary school when several kids in my class had lice, which included both black and white.  Now that Peyton is in elementary school, I want to make sure that lice doesn’t find it’s way to my home.   Just because Peyton has curly hair, I’m not going to assume that she’ll escape these tiny creatures.  SoCozy’s Boo! 3-Step System helps to prevent lice before those dreaded alerts from the school start going out.

Now more than ever, natural hair can make a comfortable environment for lice.  Here are a few reasons why.

  • We are using products that have less chemicals, therefore it makes it easier for lice to survive.
  • Most natural hair products are water, not oil so it’s easier for lice to climb up the hair.
  • Wearing natural hair doesn’t require heat but heat kills lice.
  • Sleeping with wet hair.

More tips to prevent lice:

  • Do not wash hair every day. Natural oils that build up in the hair make it hard for lice to attach to the hair shaft.
  • Do not share hats, scarves or blankets.
  • Do regular checks on your child’s hair.
  • Keep hair in braids or ponytails to prevent touching other’s hair.

Were you under the impression that natural hair kids could not get lice?  Have you  had to deal with this issue?  You can pick up the SoCozy’s Boo! 3-Step System at Target and online at

    I was under the impression that girls with natural hair did not get lice, boy was I wrong! Madison got lice this summer and I wanted to just cut off all her hair. I tried a natural product before I resorted to RID to get rid of the live lice in her hair. It’s finally all out and we have a hair salon appointment in 2 weeks to cut off some of that hair. I normally keep Madison’s hair in a bun but for some reason I opted to leave her hair out in all her “naturalness” this summer and somehow she got it. Back to braids and buns!

    I don’t know a single black person who had lice. White kids and Mexicans are the ones who got it. I guess I should be happy I still oil my daughters scalp.

    Girl, now you’re going to make me all paranoid about this. I never knew any girls with natural hair to get lice growing up. It’s good to know that there are good products out there that would work for natural hair type if it does happen.
