How to check for head lice
Examine head under bright lights
or with a flashlight- we found that sunlight and a
magnifying glass also works really
well. Head lice can be hard to detect because they are small, and
move rather quickly, and and newly laid eggs are about the size of a
poppy seed and can be can be
transparent. The empty egg shells are called nits and can be
yellowish brown to white. Be sure to move head around in the light
to check all angles.
*Begin at the nape of the neck
and work your way up to the crown, taking care to also look behind
ears. Pinning hair up and going through it in small sections works
best. Once this first section is checked, part the hair either to
the left or right of your original part and check again.
*After the back portion of the
head is complete, part your childís hair from the crown to the front
and repeat the process for this part of the hair.
*Examine the scalp closely, as
eggs attach themselves to the hair shaft. Eggs and nits are
different from dandruff in that you canít shake or blow them away,
they must be scraped away with fingernail.
