Malaysia's Head Lice Removal Salon
What are Head Lice?

Head lice are tiny wingless insects that live on the head and scalp of people, especially children. They are 1/16 to 1/8 inch in length which is about the size of a sesame seed and vary in color from tan to grey/white.

Remember These Key Points:

٭Anyone can get head lice
*Lice require blood to live
٭Off the scalp, head lice rarely survive beyond two days
٭Lice crawl very quickly
٭Lice do not jump, fly or hop
٭Lice is spread through direct contact mainly head to head contact
٭Sharing combs, brushes, hats, barrettes, etc. can also spread lice
٭Pets cannot get or spread human head lice
٭Lice is a nuisance but not a health hazard

What are the Symptoms:

٭Tickling feeling of something crawling in the hair
٭Scratch marks or red bite marks behind ears or back of the neck
٭Irritability and sleeplessness because head lice are active at night

What are Nits?

Nits are lice eggs that are very tiny and difficult to see. They vary in color from yellowish-brown to pearly white and are teardrop shaped.


Headlice crawl from head to head. Because young children are often in close proximity to one another in play or classwork, or in close proximity to family adults at home, headlice have opportunities to move from one head to another. It is impossible to know the origin of an outbreak. A less likely method of transmission is through the sharing of things like combs, hairbrushes, hats, and other things that touch the head and hair.
Because headlice need food, humidity and warmth to survive it is unlikely they will be found alive on car seats, curtains or carpets.
Adolescents and adults tend to spend little time in close proximity to others so transmission of headlice amongst older people is less likely than amongst the young
