Dandruff will fall away from the hair shaft when you brush it away.
NITS ( or newly hatched eggs ) bond to the hair shaft and DO NOT come off easy.
You have to pull them down off the hair shaft. One by one. A very time consuming task.
Live lice you can pick off the hair as well, or use lice combs. The metal dog flea combs work well at getting live ones off but can miss baby lice.
