are lice eggs.
They are typically yellow, brown, tan, or an off white and they look like small dots. These nits are found close to the scalp because the temperature is ideal for keeping the eggs warm and safe. Many confuse nits with dandruff because of their similar appearance, however, the main difference is nits cannot be removed by shaking or brushing the hair.
