FAQ

  • What are head lice?

    Head lice are tiny grey/black insects which live in the hair. Nits as they are commonly known are yellow/white eggs cases which the lice hatch from. These attach to the hair. The lice feed from the blood in the scalp and lay eggs. These eggs then hatch and grown into adult lice within around 7-10 days.

  • Who gets head lice?

    Head lice are most common in children, however anyone can catch them. It makes no difference whether the hair is clean or dirty. Head lice are usually spread by head to head contact with someone who is infected. The lice cannot jump or fly, they can simply walk from one persons head to another if in close enough contact. They can occasionally be spread by sharing a hairbrush or hair accessories with a person who is infected, but they cannot survive for any length of time away from the scalp.

  • What are the symptoms of head lice?

    Head lice can make the scalp feel itchy or like there is something moving in the head. The itching is a result of the lice biting the scalp and the reaction can cause an itch. They generally don’t cause any other problems. Occasionally they cause a rash on the scalp which may become infected, but this is very rare.

  • Can head lice be prevented?

    The only way that head lice can be prevented is by avoiding head to head contact with an infected person. It is almost impossible to completely avoid getting them. It is advised that people with long hair that may be exposed to infected people, should keep their hair tied back. This will make it more difficult for the lice to move from one person’s hair to another. This is important, for example, in children. It is also important to perform “wet combing”see below), once weekly on a person who may be exposed to head lice, for example, school children or adults who work closely with children.

  • What is detection combing?

    Detection combing is a method of combing the hair to check for lice. If this is done regularly, head lice can be found early and treatment can be commenced straight away.

    Detection combs are special fine-toothed plastic combs that you can buy from your local pharmacy or from our site.  A comb with flat-faced teeth and a tooth spacing of 0.2-0.3mm is best.

    Wet hair method

    • Wash the hair with your normal shampoo.

    • Rinse out the shampoo and put on lots of your normal conditioner.

    • Comb the hair with a normal comb to get rid of tangles.

    • When the hair is untangled, switch to a detection comb.

    • Slot the teeth of the detection comb into the hair at the roots so it is touching the scalp.

    • Draw the detection comb through to the tips of the hair.

    • Make sure that all parts of the hair are combed by working around the head.

    • Check the comb for lice after each stroke. A magnifying glass may help.

    • If you see any lice, clean the comb by wiping it on a tissue or rinse it before the next stroke.

    • After the whole head has been combed, rinse out the conditioner.

    • Repeat the combing procedure in the wet hair to check for any lice that might have been missed the first time.

     

    Dry Hair method

    Use an ordinary, wide-toothed comb to straighten and untangle the hair

    • Once the comb moves freely through the hair without dragging, switch to the louse detection comb

    • Make sure the teeth of the comb slot into the hair at the roots, with the edge of the teeth lightly touching the scalp

    • Draw the comb down from the crown to the ends of the hair with every stroke

    • Look for lice as the comb is drawn through the hair. If you see a louse, trap it against the face of the comb with your thumb to stop if being repelled by static electricity

    • Comb each section of hair 3 or 4 times before moving on to the next section, until the whole head has been combed through
