What the heck are hair casts?

23 November

What the heck are “hair casts” and why did they kick my kid out of school for having white flecks in her hair? Hair casts are a type of dandruff produced by the hair follicles that are white in color and always opaque. They usually slide easily along the hair shaft and you can easily crumble them between your fingers. We see kids all the time who are sent home from school for lice, when they actually only have hair casts. Hair casts have nothing to do with lice and are a normal part of the scalp ecology for many people.
