    Recently, my sister and her two boys got the lice; what a nightmare it was for them.

    They first tried the ‘special’ shampoo treatment from the store, but the lice came back.

    Luckily, she found a special clinic in our area for doing a heat treatment and special combing and oil treatment to remove the nits.

    A little expensive, but the clinic method worked to get rid of the lice and is guaranteed.

      usually less prone to produce a stinging or burning sensation if it were

I’ve been wanting to know if those are due to damaged hair or just genetic. How can you tell? I use paraben-free shampoo and avoid any harsh chemical on my hair.

      I think, it’s Normal.

      Most people lose anywhere from 50 to 100 strands of hair each day, according to the American Academy of Dermatology. On the days when hair is washed especially with Shampoo, people can lose up to 250 strands, Roberts said. But don’t avoid washing in an attempt to keep the hair, as it will fall out eventually, anyway. And also keep on avoiding those harsh chemicals… that’s what i have to say for Now…
