Woman shares photos of the lice found in a woman’s hair wig

A woman has cautioned women who wear weaves extensively without paying attention to the health of their hair.
Vivian Onuoha took to Facebook to share photos of the lice found in a woman’s hair wig.

The insects appeared to still be alive after they were evicted from their abode.

Head lice infestation is caused by the head louse. According to Wikipedia, head lice are wingless insects spending their entire lives on the human scalp and feeding exclusively on human blood.

Head lice are tiny insects that feed on blood from the human scalp. An infestation of head lice most often affects children and usually results from the direct transfer of lice from the hair of one person to the hair of another.

A head-lice infestation isn’t a sign of poor personal hygiene or an unclean living environment. Head lice don’t carry bacterial or viral infectious diseases.

Over-the-counter and prescription medications are available to treat head lice. Follow treatment instructions carefully to rid your scalp and hair of lice and their eggs.

A number of home or natural remedies are also used to treat head-lice infestations, but there is little to no clinical evidence of their effectiveness.
