In brief: Skin-to-skin contact

...Is the most common method, although it can also be transmitted by using an infested person's comb or brush, or putting one's head on the same pillowcase.

In brief: Head lice

Contact with an already infested person is the most common way that transmission of head lice occurs.
Head-to-head contact is common during play at school and at home (sports activities, on a playground, slumber parties, at camp, etc.).Using infested combs, brushes, or towels, wearing clothing such as hats, scarves, coats, sports uniforms, or hair ribbons recently worn by an infested person.
