// INDEPENDENT ONLINE TAKES UP THE EXTREME CASE OF HEAD LICE

Saturday 17th October 2014

The scale this young girl’s head lice infestation is beyond most parents’ worst nightmares.

In a video posted on YouTube, a woman is seen struggling to pull a nit comb through the child’s wet hair.

After several minutes, the lice build up and the camera zooms in to show a cluster of writhing greyish-green parasites.

Some escape on to the girl’s neck and are put back into her hair so they can be combed out again.

Dee Wright, whose Hairforce salon provides a specialist lice treatment, said the video was similar to some of the worst cases she has seen.

“We see infestations of that nature”.

We’ve even seen people with nests. That’s where you’ve got so many lice they’re clumping together.

“They’re a big ball of lice fighting each other for survival.”
