    Yes. I just pull the suckers out of the kids hair with my finger tips. Hardcore here.

    What specifically are you scared of? If you keep your hair clean you'll be fine, when has there ever been a serious incident where head lice has caused injury or anything like that? Even if there has been one, I'd bet it would have been on very unlooked after hair at that

    Depends what you mean by scared. If you mean you don't want them and are a bit worried of the possibly you would when you think about it, but it's not something that you're always thinking about then that's totally normal. Head lice aren't pleasant to have and it can be a bit embarrassing if you do (even though there isn't really anything you can do to prevent them cos you catch them from other people). It's normal to worry a little bit about things like that happening, but only as a passing thing, not to an extent it causes you actual fear or bothers you often.

    If you're actually scared or worry a lot about it though that's an overreaction. They are irritating, but they don't actually hurt you and they're easy to get rid of with treatments from a pharmacy. Basically the worst they can do is embarrass you, but even then it's honestly not that abnormal to get lice. It's even debated weather anything like how clean your hair is matters at all or of it's just being unlucky and coming into contact with somebody else who has them. Lice really aren't a big deal.

    It's really not worth worrying about.
