Head lice are tiny insects that live in hair. Nits are the empty egg cases attached to hair that head lice hatch from.
Head lice are a common problem, particularly in school children aged 4-11.
They’re largely harmless, but can live in the hair for a long time if not treated and can be irritating and frustrating to deal with.
