Lice have coexisted with humans for thousands of years, and they've evolved alongside us in some rather interesting ways.

  1. Ancient Companions: Did you know that the history of lice can be traced back to the time of the dinosaurs? However, the lineage that led to human head lice diverged from body lice around 1.18 million years ago!

  2. Cave Dwellers: Studies of lice DNA have shown that human head lice originated in America before spreading globally. This discovery corresponds with the theory that early humans might have migrated from America to other parts of the world.

  3. Cultural Impact: Head lice have even influenced our language. The term "nitpicking" originated from the meticulous process of removing lice eggs or 'nits' from the hair.

  4. Enduring Survivors: Lice have managed to survive through all the major extinctions that wiped out numerous species on Earth. They've even made it through the Ice Age!

  5. A Marker of Evolution: The evolution of head lice has been closely linked to human evolution. Some scientists even use the genetic study of lice to understand human evolution better.

While it's fascinating to see how head lice have evolved alongside humans, it's equally important to know how to keep them at bay. Our natural-based head lice treatment is your go-to solution for this.
