IT’S safe to say that nits are an absolute nightmare for many parents.
But you’ve never seen a case of nits as bad as this one.
A self-confessed “nit lady”, who professionally removes lice from people’s heads, has recently shared the worst case of nits she’s ever seen – and prepare to be shocked.
Sherrii, from Perth, Western Australia, shared an alarming video with photos showing the lice infestation.
Posting on TikTok to her account ‘Nitpickerperth’, she uploaded the video with advice about best practice for beating the pesky bugs.
The Australian mom removes head lice with a comb, and no chemicals.
She believes that physical removal of head lice is the best method. Her results speak for themselves.
Sherrii advises people: “You can remove even the worst case without shaving, please read.”
She said: “This is what untreated head lice looks like.
“I removed this case after it was constantly being reported to social services.
“I did not use head lice lotions, I did not shave it.
“This case is over 3.5 years old.
“I literally removed them all for them with water a little conditioner and a metal handle metal toothed lice comb.
“I wasn’t going to share this case on here but I need people to see an actual neglected head lice infestation.
“There were many issues within the family, I’m glad they did finally get the support they needed to get the lice issue sorted out once and for all.
“Many of my severe cases are embarrassed by their severe treatment attempts failing and it can take them a long time to finally seek outside help.
“I’m trying to prevent this.”
Sherrii explains how we can all help prevent head lice cases from getting so severe.
She advises: “You can help stop this too – if we stop treating head lice like a shameful taboo subject, if we talked openly about it and stopped the spreading of misinformation we could prevent we could prevent people from getting into a state like this.
“Even though it was very swollen when she arrived her scalp recovered so quickly once all the lice and nits were removed and her hair was so easy to brush.
“So many lice and nits were removed i regret not weighing them.
“Each strand was caked in nits.
“Head lice have no preference to a person’s age, sex, financial status.
“They will get into and survive fine in hair that is long/short, clean/dirty, straight, curly or wavy.
“Once weekly combing with a metal handle metal toothed lice comb as a normal and regular part of the grooming process will prevent head lice infesting your family.”
