What are head lice?
Head lice are are tiny wingless insects which can manifest on the human scalp and feed exclusively on human blood. These small grey-brown or whitish lice can often be difficult to spot (even after close inspection), and are a common issue for school children aged 4-11 years. Head lice can spread by direct head to head contact, where they climb from one person's hair to another's.
What are nits?
Nits are the empty egg or young form of a head louse attached to a persons hair.
What can I do to prevent head lice?
Though head lice are relatively harmless, they can be irritating and frustrating to live with if not suitably treated. Head lice sprays and lotions should only be used if you find a live louse in the hair (regular detection combing on a weekly basis will help with this). When lice are removed from the hair and scalp they tend to die within a 12-24 hour period.
