Nits are actually clusters of tiny brown/grayish/white sacs that contain eggs. Nits generally cluster close to the skin but they can also appear on individual hair strands. If you try to remove the nits, you probably will pull hairs out because they are firmly attached with a glue substance.

Not unless you or your child tells them.
We do suggest that you inform the school of the recent infestation, however make it clear that your child has been professionally cleaned by No More Nitz, by simply presenting a ‘FREE Clearance Certificate.

Head lice are very active and they will move from head to head very quickly. The moment they make contact with a new head, each female will lay 6 to 8 eggs every day. These eggs hatch approx 7 days after, and the newly hatched lice will themselves begin to lay eggs by the time they are just 18 days old! By the time you notice the first head louse you already have hundreds of eggs in your hair.

You can’t isolate your child from school, so you need to be diligent in search for signs of head lice on a daily basis. If found, remove them promptly before they’re able to lay their eggs.

If you see small, bud-like attachments on strands of hair but not the scalp, you’re looking at head lice eggs. The attachments can be white, cream or grey in color. The body heat that escapes via the head creates a warm environment which head lice prefer. In warmer, more humid climates however, eggs generally are laid a bit further away from a child’s scalp. Eggs that are far away from the scalp usually are dead, old, empty or cold.

Live eggs, dead eggs and empty eggs vary slightly in appearance but to the naked eye, such differences are not readily noticeable

You can however, distinguish the eggs of head lice from other types of debris you find on the head. Most notably, dandruff, cradle cap, and dandruff will all slide along shafts of hair whereas eggs will not budge from their position.

No More Nitz has a specialist head lice removal comb which can be purchased
