How do I check for head lice?

Parting the hair into small sections, look closely near the scalp for the small dandruff-like nits or the sesame seed-sized adults. Using a magnifying glass and a light can be helpful, but adults move fast and often there are only a few of them. Nits are often found behind the ears and around the nape of the neck, and they will appear glued to the hair shaft in those areas. Also, it’s important to know that nits are sometimes camouflaged the same color as the person’s hair so it may be nearly impossible for the untrained eye to catch them all. If you uncover just one adult louse, nymph or nit, we will address the findings.

Here is a more in depth set of instructions for performing head lice checks at home.
