Which comes first, the egg (nit) or the louse?
The louse (singular for lice) crawls from one head to another in close proximity. The female lays eggs very close to the scalp with or without the male present.The lice can be visible in the hair, but are tricky to spot. The nits are easier to see and have a sturdy adhesive to which they attach to the hair shaft. As such, they can be harder to remove than the lice themselves.
Lice eggs generally hatch within 7-12 days. As such, follow up exam(s) are as important as the initial treatment. If you are looking for a lice treatment in Salt Lake City and the surrounding areas, you have come to the right place, Hair Maidens.
