Head Lice Life-Cycle

The life cycle of the head louse has three stages: egg, nymph, and adult. The head lice life cycle lasts about 45 days.

A female louse can lay around 6 to 10 eggs (nits) per day. The nits will hatch in about 7 to 10 days (around 90 nits in total). It takes the newly hatched louse another 7 to 10 days to mature and reproduce its own eggs. Head lice usually live up to 30 days when on a host.

Nits are head lice eggs. They are hard to see and are often confused for dandruff or hair spray dtroplets. Nits are laid by the adult female and are cemented at the base of the hair shaft nearest the scalp.

Traditional Toxic Treatments

Traditionally, the main treatment options were insecticides, which were helpful to some degree, although they have increasingly become ineffective due to:

• Irritation: mild irritation of the eyes, nose and throat can occur with insecticide head lice treatment (care is needed with sensitive skin)

• Risk of toxic effects: neurotoxic risks (it increases for insecticidal head lice treatments given more than 3 weeks in a row, or within 7 days)

• Applying compounds to the hair to smother lice is another approach; examples of products that may be used to smother lice include:mayonnaise, butter, petroleum jelly, olive oil
