Viral video shows THOUSANDS of head lice in 13-year-old girl's hair: 'Worst case ever'
Head lice experts based in Los Angeles, USA, The Lice Angels, posted a stomach-churning clip of the worst case they ever dealt with. The team uploaded a horrific plague video with thousands of bugs in a little girl’s hair.
In the posted video a girl, with long brown hair, sitting in a chair covered in plastic, while the experts wear plastic gloves as the experts spray the girl’s hair, wearing protective gloves and run a lice comb through it, showing hundreds of lice caught in a single sweep. They captioned the horrific video: “Don’t look you might get sick. Worst lice case ever.”

In the video which makes your skin crawl and might make you sick, countless tiny bugs can be seen writhing in between the strands of hair and covering almost all of her scalp and creating a whole 'ecosystem' on the poor girl’s scalp.
The video got the quick attention of viewers and people displayed their disgust at the poor girl's plight. One user wrote: “Omg that scalp turned into an entire ecosystem.” While the second commented: "I’ll simply shave my hair if I had that.”
The anti-lice team needed an industrial set-up for this horrific job to cleanse the girl's hair and scalp, first combing through her hair with conditioner, while using paper towels to gather the bugs dropping down.
People compared the plight of the girl’s hair to a ‘zoo’ and the video got views in millions. Hairdresser Rachel Maroun, a head lice technician from Sydney, gave the poor 13-year-old girl a special scalp treatment to treat the infestation. She says in the video: "As you can see these lice are just having an absolute rave in her hair, they have just completely taken control." Rachel mentioned in the video that the case was not of neglect and the child "wasn’t able to communicate that she had lice until much later".
