I don’t know about you, but if someone told me lice would help solve hair-loss problems, I’d think twice.
However, salons in Dubai have been collecting damaged hair to grow and sell lice to treat hair loss. What?!
The salons who were doing this have been warned, but I guess it all started because scammers would claim that not only would lice make your hair grow back, but it would make your hair thicker.
Am I the only one who’s confused? Did anyone else sit through talks about how you shouldn’t touch other kids’ hair in school? Or have to sit still during a hair lice comb-through? Or did you have to bring those FYI letters home about the kid in your class who got lice? I’ve had it ingrained in my head since elementary school that head lice = bad news.
I don’t know who these scammers are trying to fool with their untrue rumors, but I hope that no one actually believed them. You’re supposed to comb lice out of your hair, not put lice in it! If lice made your hair thicker and treated hair loss, no one would really care if they had lice, but that’s obviously not the case.
So how are people falling for this trap? Perhaps there just needs to be more lice education out there. The more information the better, and it seems like in this case, everyone will benefit from it.
Instead of putting insects into your hair to try to make it grow back, I think a little research about hair products may yield better results.
