Q. Head lice produce tiny eggs (nits) which appear as white specks or as dark specks on the hair.
A. True. Nits are sometimes easy, sometimes difficult to see on the hair. A clear nit usually indicates a nit that has hatched. A dark, plump nit indicates a viable nit. However, there is a broad range of what nits look like, and people often mistake simple dandruff or debris for nits.
