Head Lice Checklist Requirements
Before You Arrive For Your Head Lice Visit
Before your arrival it is important to do the following:
- Very Important: Brush or comb child’s hair free of tangles before arriving.
- Shampoo and condition your child’s hair before the appointment. Do not bring them in with wet hair. Also, NO hair products such as gel or hairspray should be applied prior to your arrival as it makes the technician’s job more difficult.
- We strongly encourage you to bring all of your family members so every member can be checked. This helps minimize the odds of re-infestation and ensures your school that you have done your part in identifying potential contact issues.
- DON’T stress over the cleaning. We will guide you through some safe and effective means of cleaning necessary items; only start after your treatment process has been completed.
- While we make every effort to consider your child’s comfort, they will be seated for an extended period. If they have a favorite book, toy or DVD, please feel free to bring that along. We do have DVD players, movies, free Wi-Fi and televisions at each treatment booth.
- Consider bringing a snack for your child. However, we do have snacks and refreshments available for purchase if you choose.
During Your Head Lice Visit
- When bringing young children, PLEASE keep them in tow. For the comfort of all clients, small children are not to be left without the care of their parents or responsible adult. Also for everyone‘s safety, do not allow them to be laying or playing around the treatment area while technicians are working.
- Schedule rechecks within 7 days. It is mandatory that you keep your follow-up visit as it is the only way we can help you to ensure that no further contact exists.
- Educate yourself in our facility. Take advantage of this time to learn more about head lice. We are always willing to answer any questions you may have. Education is the best way to help prevent future re-occurrences!
Special Note: If we feel that your child cannot fully benefit from our service due to being disobedient, unmanageable or unruly behavior we will end the treatment.
