According to the Mirror, the video showed a 12-year-old girl whose hair had become overrun with lice as her family was struggling to treat them at home due to her disabilities.

Showing clips of the infestation, Rachel explained that she first wondered if she would have to shave the hair, however, she didn’t want to do that as the girl had long, thick hair.

“I think there were more lice than hair strands on her head,” Rachel said in the video as she showed them on the girl’s clothes and neck.

She then began by combing through the girl’s hair to remove as many of the lice as possible which was a “really painful process.”

Before she then moved on to removing all of the lice eggs.

And after 3 days of work on her hair, it all paid off as Rachel described the girl’s hair as “beautiful,” “healthy,” and “shiny.”
