Demodex mites are very common in humans. The older you are, the more likely you are to have a few mites living in your follicles, with some sources stating that virtually all senior citizens have them.
15. How to see the Demodex mites?
Because they are microscopic, you generally don’t know that you have follicle mites.
To confirm that they are present, you would need to gently scrape oily skin secretions off the surface of the skin or attempt to express some sebum from the hair follicles on the face. The material could then be examined under a microscope; however, if no mites are seen, they might simply be too few and too deeply lodged in the hair follicles to be detected in this manner.
For most of us, however, the presence or absence of follicle mites on our faces, hair and skin is of little consequence.
16. About The Interview: "The Myth of Mites"?
Hair loss is not a new problem. When dealing with hair loss, people always over-treat their scalps with too many products and treatments, hoping that it will be deeply revitalized and hair will grow again. However, they might have missed out something very important in the process. Our pets, be them cats or dogs are always infected with mites or skin parasites that feed on the keratin layer of the skin. Similarly, we have unknowingly become the host for those dangerously harmful microorganisms known as hair mites which cause hair loss . To tackle this problem, we have to start from the root.

A. Do you mind sharing with us what exactly hair mites? How do hair mites possibly link to hair loss or any other hair problems?
Yes, of course! Demodex mites are parasites that live in hair follicles and have recently been identified as a leading contributor to hair loss as well as skin aging, rough skin, wide pores, red nose, pimples, acne, rosacea, discoloration on the face, freckles, spots, fine wrinkles, atopic dermatitis, itching, skin disease and etc.
Hair mites are closely related to thinning hair and hair loss. As hair mites feed off of sebum, the hair follicle can become progressively undernourished thus causing the hair follicle to eventually fall out. If they are left untreated, their population can dramatically increase, resulting in hair loss.
