Lice Treatment Client Testimonials
Seven daughters all cleared for school
“I have 7 girls! And we have had a couple rounds of lice this school year! Anita, with the LiceDoctors was not only professional, but also really friendly. My girls talked her ear off and I was so thankful to have our lice problem dealt with by someone who knew what they were doing and could get them all clear to return to school. We were able to get treated right away! Would definitely use them again!” – Victoria P. in Nashville, Yelp, 5 stars
Calming, meticulous and a life saver!
“Laura, the nurse from LiceDoctors was the best! I emailed them late at night and received a call first thing the next morning. She was at my house that afternoon. She was calming, meticulous and a life saver! She taught me how to make sure to keep the lice away. I would highly recommend it!” – Robin O. in Memphis, Tennessee, Yelp 5 stars
Knowledgable, professional and encouraging!
“LiceDoctors helped us through a time when you have little hope of battling this problem. We gave it our all on our own, but it wasn’t until after Roselynn with LiceDoctors came to our home, that we actually felt like we were gonna defeat it! She was very knowledgable, professional and encouraging! Thank you!” – Jason K. in Knoxville, TN, Yelp 5 stars
Efficient and informative service
“Fantastic service. We were at our wits end when I called them. They had someone to my house within 2 hours of my call. Liz (who is an R.N.) was a real pro and cut through the chaos in our house and got us to calm down. That in and of itself was worth the price. She spent time educating us so that if we ever get this again, we will know what to do. She got us lice-free in two hours–super efficient. I have only good things to say about this service!” Brad G. in Murfreesboro, TN
Wasted $300 on do-it-yourself treatments
“We have 4 daughters with LONG hair. After a nightmarish 2 weeks of “do it yourself” chemical treatments and homeopathic treatments costing upwards $300 and HOURS (probably 36 hrs at least) of lice combing. We STILL had lice. After a nervous breakdown, my wife and I sought help. Enter the LiceDoctors. The LiceDoctors came highly recommended to us by a family of 7 that we knew, but we initially didn’t try them because of the cost. LiceDoctors aren’t exactly cheap… BUT WOW are they worth it. Hopefully we will never have to deal with Lice again, but if we do then without hesitation we will call the Lice Doctors. They are VERY professional and incredibly personable. Immediately they set my wife and I at ease that our problem was solved. And true to their word, they removed all lice from 2 parents, 4 girls & 1 grandma in about 4 hours time. It’s been 2 months and i can say with great certainty we are Lice free and we LOVE the LiceDoctors.” – Isaac M. in Chattanooga, Tennessee, Google Plus, 5 stars.
LiceDoctors helps family during difficult time
“I was just recovering from surgery when my daughter asked me to look at her head, since she’d been itching so much. To our dismay, we found 3 tiny insects. The pediatrician’s office just said to try the over the counter remedies, and I knew other moms who had not had good results with that. So I immediately set up an appointment for that night with LiceDoctors to come do the treatment and show me what to do to follow up. The technician was very professional, informative, pleasant, and really helped us at a time when I felt completely overwhelmed.” – Rosemary C. in Memphis, Tennessee, Google Plus 5 stars
Do Lice Like All Hair Types?
Mary, a mom in Nashville, called us to say that she had found lice in one of her children’s hair. She is the mother of three biological children who are Caucasian and three adopted children who are African-American. Mary specifically asked if her African-American children were immune from lice as she had read that somewhere. She had also heard that lice prefer blonde hair to brown hair and one of her biological children is blonde.
These are common misconceptions; lice like all hair types. It is true that African-Americans are less likely to become infested with lice but the reason for that is the typical use of gel and oil in the hair as part of the styling regimen or the popularity of braids. Lice are not particularly picky; if they can reach the hair and use it as a ladder to get to their food, which is the blood in the scalp, they will do so.
To that end, there is one type of hair that lice prefer and that is long hair. If the hair is long and the louse can access it, it is easier for the bug to climb up to the head.
Hair color is irrelevant to lice in terms of their preference. Also lice do not care if the hair has been dyed or not. The relevance of hair color pertains to identification of the lice. It is a little easier to see lice and their eggs in blonde hair. Since the eggs (nits) have a translucent shell which covers the brown baby bug, against a blonde background the encased baby bug will appear to stand out more than it will against a brown background, where it will camouflage. Also the relevance of hair dye is that when applied to a head that is infested with lice, it will kill most of the live bugs. It will do nothing to the eggs. And again lice do not care if the hair has been dyed or not if they are trying to find a new head.
