We had nits come into our heads and home nine times last year. Nine. They say that some people have the just the right PH levels on their scalps and head warmth that attract nits and keep them coming back. My eight-year-old has the most appealing PH level and warm nit nest head that any nit could wish for.
I am more scared of the kids getting nits than getting gastro. At least gastro passes in a few days. Nits are silent assassins. Crawling around and setting up camp and multiplying by the hundred while you don’t notice. Until it’s too late. My youngest has long, messy, fair, and curly hair. You cannot spot the buggers in that mess. Once he was scratching his head for two weeks and I kept checking every single day and didn’t find anything.
