Why Choose The Lice Guides
Hello! My name is Sara & like you, I found myself scouring through the internet looking for everything regarding head lice. In 2011 my two girls & 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 & all the work my mom did in our house, having my favorite blanket & toys taken away for a month, sitting for hours as she worked to remove the lice & their eggs. Mostly, I remembered those awful feelings due to the negative stigma's associated with having a case of head lice.
I immediately called my mom to see what needed to be done. As she told me about what she used in the early 80’s, I wondered if these products were still available. Indeed, they were. I went to our pharmacy & purchased a familiar OTC treatment. I treated all 5 of my family members, including myself then dived right into the hours & hours of cleaning our home.
Exhausted but feeling like I had the upper hand, it was time to double-check yesterdays counterattack. Well, there they were! Lice & eggs remained & the bugs were very much alive. I felt the rug was pulled out from underneath & the wind was knocked out of me... But, I wasn’t going to let this little bug win. I went to the internet in search of a foolproof solution. The overload of information seemed to contradict each previous solution. Following along, I continued to comb & treat our hair week after week with little results. I had to get educated!
My luck was about to change! I came across the leading head lice research institute in the United States. I called them. They actually listened to my story & extended a personal invitation to better educated me. So, that is exactly what I did. We set the date & I was going to spend my days learning everything head lice.
I was impressed. I was no longer that panicked mom not knowing where to start. I had an "A-Z" education on head lice & their nits while gaining knowledge on treatment options. Above all else, I had an opportunity to help others.
In 2012, after spending a week at the leading head lice research institute in the United Stated & meeting some of our countries leading head lice experts, I decided to open a head lice removal salon. I asked my mom Brenda, if she would join me on this new adventure. She accepted.
