What Do Demodex Hair Mites Look Like?

What do Demodex hair mites look like, you ask?

As they are invisible to the naked eye, unless aided by a microscope, many people are curious to know what is going on with hair mites and how they look.

The adult Demodex mites usually are around 0.3 mm in length. They have semi-transparent elongated bodies with 8 short segmented legs. Hair mites have pin-like mouth-parts for eating skin cells, hormones, and oils.

They crawl! They move by crawling about in the darkness. That’s why many people who have a high population density of hair mites complain of night itching.

“Know thy enemy, know thy self”

That proverb isn’t entirely fair for hair mites as they aren’t necessarily the bad guys, as long as their population is under control.

But anyway we need to know the problem to be able to solve it. This is often the case with mites, as for the most part, they have fallen under the radar despite a large estimated of their population.

The life cycle of these hair mites is incredibly short—so short, in fact, that their bodies are not even equipped with organs for eliminating waste products.

They feed on oils and nutrients from our skin and beneficial ingredients inside shampoos, creams, etc. They mate, lay eggs, and then die within two weeks of being hatched. Often, both humans and their eight-legged friends can live peacefully with each other; however, when their numbers grow too high, and an infestation begins, many unpleasant side effects may be experienced by the host.

It seems that in older people, those with suppressed immune systems (caused by stress or illness), or possibly those taking antibiotics or with compromised skin faunae, the mite’s population can sometimes increase dramatically.

Warning Signs of Demodex Mite Infestation

Demodex mites are thought to be the culprits responsible for causing all sorts of hair and skin problems.

This happens when an excess of mites live on the skin, laying too many eggs within follicles & oil glands and leaving behind their corpses to cause clogging of the pores, thus hindering skin’s natural self-sloughing abilities.

Thus, hair mites infestation can manifest in the following symptoms:

  • Hair loss
  • Hair thinning
  • General Discomfort
  • A whole host of skin ailments!
  • Flushing and swelling of the skin
  • Intense itching and burning sensations
  • Rash-like appearance to the infested skin
  • Clogged pores (acne, pimples and, blackheads)

These symptoms can be incredibly uncomfortable to live with – but the good news is that you don’t have to!
