Why Do Lice Want to Live in Your Hair?

Lice are annoying, especially when they decide to find a temporary home in your hair. Why is hair their preferred residence anyway?

Lice have their tarsal claws and spines conveniently located on their legs so they can easily cling to our hair. They especially love our warm scalps as a place to nest eggs. They can easily migrate from one person’s hair to another’s if they have the chance.

The video above, published by Deep Look, shows this phenomenon in more detail. It will also tell you what to do in case you or your kid get lice. Hint: regular insecticide shampoos don’t work anymore.
