How do you check yourself for head lice?

Answer

If you suspect you have somehow acquired the notoriously itchy head lice, it is possible to check yourself for them without assistance from others. Find a mirror in a room with good lighting. Use a comb to part your hair. Examine the hair in small sections by using a magnifying glass along with the mirror. Lice are sensitive to light and will try to run into a darker location. Also check for nits near the roots.
