The head lice family consists of nits, eggs, nymph and lice. There are female and male lice and head lice do reproduce sexually. The whole head lice family operates as a family. Nits are actually the empty egg casing of the eggs laid by the female louse. Head lice are tiny wingless parasites that consist of nits, nymphs and adult lice. The nymph is an adolescent who, once hatches from the egg, grows to a louse in a few weeks. The louse is adult head lice which has reached the maturity to lay eggs (nits).

But, Combing can take some time depending on the hair. Girls with long thick hair will need some patience as combing will take a while. Short or thin hair will usually be a much quicker process. The hair should be divided into 4cm sections and, using the teeth of the comb, run the comb from the root of the hair to the tip. After every comb wipe off the head lice and eggs on to a tissue and repeat until every strand of hair has been combed.
