Tingle Triggers: Lice Checks

LouseBuster treatment When I was in Primary School, way back in the 2nd or 3rd grade, there was one time of the year which most of us school kids dreaded: the day when we went for lice checks. It was usually unannounced as far as I remember, to prevent someone from doing something sneaky like wearing a wig, or shaving their hair off or something. It was a case of “Kids, lice check time, let’s go! Move, move, move!”

But I for one, enjoyed these days, and wished they happened more often. Class by class we were led over to the area just outside the large swimming pool. The wind blew softly through the trees which stood above the cracked asphalt, caused by their roots. Here it was quiet. Nobody could hear you scream.

A white outdoor chair was placed on the ground, and we were forced to wait in line, and take our turn in the seat while others watched, as the ladies with their white prostate-checking gloves combed through our hair.
I found this experience to be exhilarating. I would sit there with my eyes closed as the sun gently shone through the leaves and warmed my scalp, all the while feeling her hands working all over my head. The check only lasted for several seconds all in all, but I wish it lasted longer. Later, I almost felt like going back for seconds (literally)!

I remember once the lice check was over, and I went home from school later that day, I tried to replicate the check myself. I sat there and moved my hands slowly and thoughtfully through my hair, but it just wasn’t the same as when it was done by someone else. It felt really good. I can almost trigger off the sensations by thinking back to those events.

  1. Oh wow YES! In the UK the lady was known as the nit nurse and that was one of the earliest experiences I had of ASMR. I loved it but it always ended too soon.

I apologise if you are having trouble leaving a comment. Sometimes the comment system doesn't accept comments. I'm looking in to this right now, and hopefully can find a fix soon. There are several potentional reasons why this may be happening to some people, and one of them points in the direction of a recent Blogger update.

This is the main reason why I am unable to respond to comments left on the blog for the time being, but rest assured that I do read and approve comments that make it through. If you really need to get a hold of me, then visit my contact page in the sidebar to the right. Thanks.
