The Lice Clinic. Head Lice are small wingless human parasites that make their home on the human scalp. Head Lice have adapted incredibly to be able to survive on their human hosts, leading to the term Super Lice. However Super Lice are not a new species of lice but simply the same successful parasites they have always been. Head Lice have developed many successful strategies to evade detection by their primary predator, humans! These strategies include different types of camouflage for the louse itself as well as lice eggs. Lice eggs are very difficult to remove from the human hair shaft. This is no accident. Head Lice removal treatment involves successfully removing all of the lice eggs.
The Lice Clinic. The OMG Lice Comb removes all of the head lice as well as all of the lice eggs, or nits. The nits attach themselves to the hair shaft using a kind of lice superglue and are very difficult to remove. Also the nits have camouflage in the form of iridescence making the nits difficult to see.
The Lice Clinic. Why can’t I see the lice or the lice eggs? Most parents over age 40 can’t see lice and nits. Head lice have developed clever ways to evade detection by the human eye. Lice have had thousands of years to figure out how to become difficult to see. The lice themselves are clear like jellyfish, so if you have head lice in your hair you can’t see the lice because you look right through them.
