IDENTIFYING THE PROBLEM
How To Identify Lice?
Anyone can be affected by head lice and lice actually prefer clean hair. So don't panic, don't feel ashamed and reassure your cheeky monkey that everything will be fine.
Look for Symptoms
The first warning sign is repeated scratching of certain areas of the scalp, particularly the neck, temples and around the ears. These are the main areas where female lice lay their eggs.
A visual inspection of the hair is essential though not always enough if you want to identify head lice properly. Using a head lice comb on wet hair, will enable you to spot head lice more easily.
