Some of the common problems that both men and women face concerning hair and the scalp are infections, loss, and disorders.
Although it is usual to shed hair every day, it becomes a matter of great concern when people experience hair loss more than normal. Some people even have an inherited tendency to common baldness, which is mostly found in men. Usually, sudden and temporary loss of large amounts of hair is related to stress.
Infections on the scalp contain bacteria. Excessive flaking and itching are found with both psoriasis and dandruff.

PEDICULOSIS CAPITIS (HEAD LICE)
Head lice or pediculosis capitis is highly contagious. Head lice can occur on people of all races and ages. Men are not affected as much as females are, but children are most likely to be affected by a head lice infection since it is normal for epidemics to occur in schools. Nursing homes have also faced epidemics mostly through contact with children.

· Behind the ears
SELF CARE GUIDELINES
· Search for nits and lice on wet hair with a fine-toothed or louse comb.
· Examine the scalp under strong light.
· Wash household items like towels and hats in hot water and dry them using the hot cycle for 20 minutes
· Wash anything that has come in contact with an infected person in hot water
