Nit Shampoo & Head Lice Treatment
Head lice are tiny insects that live on the human head, laying eggs and feeding on blood from the scalp. They can, therefore, cause the head to become very itchy and uncomfortable. You can tell if you have head lice because you will be able to see them crawling around the scalp. You can also see the eggs. You may have heard the term “nits”: this is actually the name of head louse eggs that are now empty.
How to get rid of head lice
You can remove head lice by combing them out carefully and diligently with a special fine-toothed comb. Specialised head lice combs are designed to effectively remove head lice and nits, as well as detangling hair. Children’s hair can easily become very tangled, so we would recommend applying lots of conditioner before combing it through, to enable the comb to go through the hair without pulling.
