Having Head Lice does not mean you are dirty. Head Lice even like clean hair better than dirty hair! I know you feel yucky having bugs on you, or your child’s hair. But it's not your fault you have lice. Getting head lice is almost as easy as catching a cold - and you've caught plenty of colds, right? It's unpleasant but very beatable especially with help from Rockland’s premier lice removal service.
Traditional head lice treatments are ineffective and hazardous to your health and our environment. Head lice have become Super Bugs and have built up a resistance to these toxic chemicals. Many of the pesticides used, are now BANNED in California for being too dangerous to humans and the environment. Why would we want to use them on our children?
Head Lice can only survive on human heads. Cleaning your house will make you feel better but it's not going to help you beat lice. Washing pillow cases and sheets and vacuuming where people's heads touch are all you really need to do. The most important part of beating head lice is focusing on the head. If you can see nits (eggs), you need a head lice expert to help. You will be re-infested unless all the nits are gone.
Head Lice are small wingless insects that cannot fly or jump. Most often the head lice will crawl from one persons head to another while in close contact.
A female head louse lives about 30 days and after 10 days will mature and start laying eggs at a rate of about seven eggs a day. An infested head will have approximately 25 live lice. If half are girls that's 84 eggs a day. An egg or nit takes 10 days to hatch. You can see how the infestation can get bad quickly if nitpicking isn't done.
Head Lice have been around since the beginning of time. Lice combs and nits have been found in Egyptian tombs!
Head Lice don't care if you are rich or poor. Infestations go through private schools just as often as public schools.
Head Lice can't live on stuffed animals or pets. They only live on human heads.
The most effective method of treating head lice is by contacting a trained professional upon detection. The most effective method of preventing head lice is by learning during the treatment process and arming yourself with the tools and methodologies used by them.
I have been helping children and their families get lice free and stay that way for over 10 years. I am a stay at home mother of 3 children in Rockland County, NY. My kids have always had very long hair that is washed daily. These are the optimal conditions for lice to thrive. I first encountered lice when my oldest was in Kindergarten. I completely understand the state of panic a parent can be in when they get “the call” that their child has lice. I am here to help!
Don't be overwhelmed! I have been there, more than once! It is scary and confusing, especially with all of the products out there that claim to work. As a result of prior experience and my tenacity with regard to a safe and natural solution, I have developed a system in which lice can be treated and future infestations can actually be prevented. For the last few years, I have shared my passion for natural and safe treatment by using this method on children and sometimes their parents. During treatment, I also teach parents the proper way to detect, treat and prevent lice so that in the future you may not need a professional.
ALL NATURAL / NON-PESTICIDE! I stand by my products 100% and use them on my own children, they are truly the best out there. The shampoos, sprays and tools are always available for sale and in stock for immediate pickup or delivery.
