This woman with the long beautiful hair looks happy and even carefree. No way does she have lice, right? Not so fast. There are plenty of people out there with lice who have no idea that they have it. If you have found lice in your hair, you are a step ahead of them and should be on the path to eradicating the infestation. The reason that so many people have lice is that it is highly contagious and is transferred from head to head. One reason that people may be unaware that they have lice is that they have no symptoms. While some people react to lice bites by feeling itchy, other people feel no itchiness whatsoever. In addition, there are a number of people who feel itchy but head lice is not on their radar screen so they think that they have dry scalp or some other itch producing impetus. If you feel itchy, it is wise to have a professional check your hair. It is always best to find an infestation at an early stage. Conversely, if you see someone who is seemingly lice-free, don't make any assumptions. She or he could have a case of lice and might be unwittingly sharing those unwanted critters with everyone around her.
