Regular scalp checks are important. These checks can help prevent lice from being a problem before they can become one. It is important to do frequent scalp checks to ensure you are lice-free. As you or someone else is combing through your hair you might notice an influx of dandruff that you now can get ahead of. You could also see some sort of redness, rash, or bump that shouldn’t be there, and because you got your scalp looked at you can get ahead of all these problems before they can develop further.
How to Check Yourself for Lice
The first step in checking your scalp for head lice is always to put on gloves. After that, you must create a part in the hair with your fingers so you can clearly see the scalp of the person. Now at this step having a flashlight might help, but you need to check to see if any lice are crawling around after that initial part of the hair. You should be looking for little dark dots that look like poppy seeds. If you can’t see any head lice, it is time to look for the nits, also known as “the eggs of the lice.” The nits will only be about a quarter of an inch away from the scalp and are small, yellow, or white-colored-looking dots. It will be easier to see the nits than the lice because they are stationary and a lot of them are in one area. Some areas you should check are the crown of the head, behind the ears, bangs (if applicable), and the back of your neck.
