The lice are tiny insects almost exclusively live in humans, which depending on the body area where they live different names: capitis Pediculus (head louse), pedicles corporis (body louse) and Pediculus pubis (pubic lice).

The head louse is a small insect that lives between the hairs, has no wings and is 2 to 4 mm long, which feeds on the blood that sucks from the skin of the head. More specifically,  lice consist of parasites of very small size that feed on the blood they derive from the scalp of the individual in which they are found.

Although most commonly these parasites tend to be located on the scalp, did you know that they can also get installed in the eyelashes or eyebrows? However, as we indicated is not the most usual.

The most common form of transmission is direct contagion, so that in addition to contact between people directly, it also occurs as a result of the use of combs, brushes, caps and even scarves. In fact,  their spread is very easy , especially among the youngest.

Among children, transmission is more normal (especially between 4 and 6 years of age), so that from 6 to 10 years, lice have a lower incidence.

The symptoms that head lice cause tend to be much more evident when the bites occur, since they are usually very annoying and cause uncomfortable itching.

However, we must differentiate between the lice themselves and the  nits , which are the small eggs of lice. These eggs have the peculiarity that, in fact, they are very difficult to seeand may even be confused with the presence of dandruff.

But there is one key difference: while the dandruff loosens and disappears when the hair is moved,  the nits stick to the hair , not being so easy to remove.

Treatment does not help prevent them, so it is only given when an infestation has already occurred. The most common are antiparasitic lotions based on pyrethrins.

In relation to home remedies against lice, apple cider vinegar can become a truly effective natural option. We explain whyand how to elaborate the natural remedy.

Homemade Apple Cider Vinegar Remedy

Vinegar consists of a completely natural product, which is produced from the fermentation of certain foods. In the case of apple cider vinegar, in fact, it is obtained from the fermentation of apples when they are exposed to the air. Precisely, acetic acid is the “guilty” bacterium of the vinegar production, giving it its characteristic aroma or scent.

It is this acid that has  antiseptic properties , which helps when killing germs. What’s more, although it is not a hundred percent effective remedy, apple cider vinegar is deadly for nits , thanks to the acidity of this product, helping to nourish the scalp nits.
