About Our Head Lice Treatment Salon
How Our Head Lice Salon Started
My name is Sara and like you, I found myself scouring through the internet looking for everything A-Z, in regards to head lice. In 2011 my two girls and I had head lice. I can honestly say my first reaction was dread then came the tears. I remembered having head lice as a child and all the work my mom did in our house and having my favorite blanket & toys taken away for a month. I remembered sitting for hours as my mom worked to remove the lice and their eggs.
I immediately called her to see what needed to be done. As she told me about what she used in the early 80’s, I wondered if this OTC product was still available. Indeed it was. We went to our pharmacy and purchased Rid. I treated all 5 of my family members, including myself. Cleaned head lice from everything top to bottom and was feeling very accomplished but Wow, that was a lot of work and it was all for nothing.
As I checked through their heads again, I could see the hair lice bugs and they were very much alive. I felt the rug was pulled out from under me but I wasn’t going to let this little bug win. I went to the internet only to find an overload of information that seemed to contradict itself. I continued to work on our hair for 2 more months.
I called a family member asking how they beat the bug. She gave me a near identical story of treating & cleaning but not getting rid of it completely until she came across a salon that removed head lice. I was elated. Wow, there are places to go to remove head lice & on the first try? YES! I called and we had our appointments.
Head lice gone, done, over with all within a few hours. I was impressed. I knew know that my battle with head lice was good fate rather than misfortune. I had to get educated and help others as our family had been helped. I came across the leading head lice research institute in the US. I called them and set the date to spend my days learning everything head lice. That is exactly what I did.
I was no longer that panicked mom not knowing where to start. I was that mom that had an opportunity to help others.
In 2012, after receiving my certificate of completion from Katie Shepherd, the leading head lice expert in America, I was ready to open a head lice removal salon. I asked my mom Brenda, if she would join me on this new adventure. She accepted.
