Can you actually see the lice clearly if you pull them out of The hair? Like the legs and all? L has a few black dots at top of her head near her forehead, I can pull them out easily but they are so small I'm not sure if its dirt or lice. she's not scratching

The larger ones you can, really clearly. With the baby ones, it's harder, but it's still obvious what they are.
Check round the ears, and nape of the neck, for a clear indication if she has them or not.

As AK says with an adult you know what you're seeing. I find the smaller ones harder to tell whether its just dirt or lice sometimes - or glitter as one or two have turnedout to be. If you put them on paper they will move. Look for the egg cases - look like dandruff but cling to the hair shaft even when you try to dislodge them. The young ones are often brown colour.

Thanks for this, I checked when she came home from school, I couldn't see anything behind her ears or naps of her neck. And no more black stuff
