In Chile, this little girl aged 7 and a half head is full of thousands of head lice and nits. This is by far the most extreme video that I have seen.
This video shows a mum struggling to comb through her daughters thick hair infested with head lice is very disturbing to watch.
I would blame her mom for this. If they got this many from her head then probably she had this for a long time. Poor little girl. I am sure she can’t get a good sleep every day.
Facts About Head Lice
The head louse is a tiny, wingless parasitic insect that lives among human hairs and feeds on tiny amounts of blood drawn from the scalp. Lice (the plural of louse) are a very common problem, especially for kids. They’re contagious, annoying, and sometimes tough to get rid of.
Quick Fact 2
Having head lice is not a sign of dirtiness or poor hygiene. The pesky little bugs can be a problem for kids of all ages and socioeconomic levels, no matter how often they do — or don’t — wash their hair or bathe.
How to get Rid of Head Lice
Nitpicking and combing
The gold standard for head lice removal, you’ll need to do this in conjunction with almost all other treatments. First you comb hair section by section with a special comb (you can buy one at the drugstore) to remove lice and nits.
This kitchen staple is thought to be an excellent smothering agent. Lice supposedly suffocate and die when the ooze plugs their breathing holes, but it needs to be applied overnight under a shower cap because lice can survive without breathing for hours. You’ll also have to comb to remove nits, but the olive oil should help loosen them from the hair shafts.
