Head lice can drive even the most zen person into a frenzy. Stop, drop, and listen up. LiceDoctors technician, Rebecca, tells you just what you need to do.

LICE – the very word causes panic among the calmest of people and triggers immediate involuntary scratching of the human scalp! It’s amazing the mental damage these annoying little critters can produce upon discovery! But before your fingers travel the keyboard in search of Google and the millions of answers you are desperate to find . . . . STOP!!! 

Put down your brown paper bag and take a deep breath! You will get through this without

hyperventilating or losing your sanity! Well ok, so you may lose just a little of your sanity but doesn’t that usually happen when life throws you the unexpected anyway? Go back to your phone or computer and delete the hazmat suit you just put in your shopping cart on Amazon (It’s cheaper than eBay – I checked!). You’re going to scare the kids looking like a really late audition gone bad from Ghost Busters! It all seems overwhelming at first, but discussing how to prepare for lice removal will calmly give you a much better understanding of what to expect.

The first thing you want to do upon discovering lice is to call LiceDoctors at 772-879-5671. You will speak to a dispatcher to schedule the best time for a very experienced technician to come to your home. You do not need to shower, put on make-up, or clean your house before they arrive! The best way to prepare is to have an idea where you would like treatment to take place – kitchen table, on a stool at the counter, in a large bathroom, etc. Although the technician will wrap a towel around your shoulders, it is highly recommended to wear old clothes in case olive oil were to drip or soak though. Finally, it’s best to have each head tangle free before the tech arrives to help the process go smoothly.

Quite often when a technician arrives at a home, the parent has been in such a state of panic

that he or she didn’t think to ask about the process. Usually the most important information being clung to is the arrival time and the fact that a human being is coming to get rid of their lice! What you can expect is a trained technician to greet you with kindness and professionalism as she walks through the door and takes your level of panic from orbiting the planets in space to ground level!

It will put your mind at ease to know that LiceDoctors does not use any chemicals and the process is completely safe whether you have a 2 month old or are 92 years old! Lice are becoming more and more immune to over-the-counter store treatments and the chemicals can be very strong with adverse side effects for some people. Often times a parent cannot see the lice or nits at no fault of their own due to vision or they simply do not know what to look for. This is why your best option is to bring in a trained professional to help rid your family of lice as well as provide an education on how to help your family prevent this from happening in the future.

You can’t put a price on peace!
