When lice eggs hatch, they release nymphs. The shells of hatched lice eggs are still attached to the hair and appear in a dull yellow shade. The nymphs themselves are tiny and tan-colored, and they will mature into adults in about a week. Adult lice have six legs, each with a claw, and they are tan to grayish-white in color. They are no bigger than a sesame seed.

Eventually, the hair will look completely gray.
People can get gray hair at any age. Some people go gray at a young age, whether they are in high school or college, while others may be in their 30s or 40s before they see their first gray hair. Our genes determine how early we get gray hair. This means that the majority of us will have gray hair by the time our parents or grandparents first appeared.
Gray hair is more noticeable in people with darker hair because it stands out, but people with naturally lighter hair are just as likely to go gray. It may take more than ten years for all of the person’s hair to turn gray from the time they first noticed it.
Some people believe that a big shock or tragedy can turn a person’s hair white or gray overnight, but scientists don’t necessarily agree that this occurs. Just in case, try not to freak out your parents too much.

12What is hair bulb?
Hair growth occurs in cycles made up of three phases: Anagen (growth phase): The majority of hair is growing at any given time. Each hair spends several years in this phase.
Catagen (transitional phase): Over the course of a few weeks, hair growth slows and the hair follicle shrinks.
Telogen (resting phase): Over the course of months, hair growth has slowed, and the old hair has fallen out of the hair follicle. The new hair grows out as a result of the old hair.
Hair grows at different rates in different people; the average rate is about one-half inch per month. Pigment cells that produce melanin in the hair follicle can change hair color.
13Where is the hair bulb located?
A small vessel that passes through the hair shaft’s interior provides the hair with all of the essential nutrients it needs to stay healthy, such as amino acids, mineral salts, or vitamins.
