  • The same as in any other regular hair. They look like grains of sand and they are stuck to the hair shaft. They like the nape of the neck and bhind the ears the most because it's warm. Nits will not shake loose like dandruff and they feel like a peice of salt or sand.

  • You need to go out side to find them. Or have a BIG A$$ lamp.

    I had two girls with lice and couldnt delice them with out a STRONG lamp right on them or I had to be out side. Those buggers are harder to find in blond hair.

    Best bet is to have a GOOD light source and to have someone show you how to do it.
