Who can be infested?
Head lice infestation is most common in children aged 3 to 11 who go to preschool and primary , family members can also be infested.
Head lice crawl, they cannot jump or fly, and they spread by direct contact with an infested person’s hair.
Signs and symptoms of infestation
- Tickling sensation of something moving around in the hair.
- Itching, caused by an allergic reaction to louse bites.
- Irritability and difficulty sleeping; head lice are most active in the dark.
- Sores to the scalp caused by scratching. These sores can sometimes become infected by bacteria present on the person’s skin.
Like any other treatment process, we need to start with a diagnosis to verify that lice are, in fact, the problem afflicting you or your child.
These are the 3 steps we perform in our child friendly salons or in the comfort of your house:
The hair is divided into small sections to ensure we do not miss out any space. Using our unique suction system we guarantee the removal of more than 90% of the lice and nits.
Going back over the sections to which we previously applied suction, we use our special metal combs for lice and nits to remove virtually all of the infestation.
We check thoroughly by hand each strand of hair, ensuring that treatment has been successful and that there are no more lice or nits alive.
