“If you want solid, meticulous, thorough service – Nicole is your girl. Not to mention she’s extremely informative: what it is, what to look for, how to comb, how to prevent with regular maintenance, and how to treat in the future (knock on wood) should this happen again. Nicole made an uncomfortable situation almost fun if you can believe it – she’s great with kids AND adults! Definitely recommend My Hair Helpers and Nicole.”
Head lice are tiny six legged insects that are blood sucking parasites.They live on the scalp of humans.
The evidence for head lice goes back many centuries. Lice was named as the third plague in the Old Testament of the Bible. The shell casings for lice have been found on Egyptian mummies.
In the majority of cases, head lice is passed with head to head contact. A smaller number of cases are passed through brushes and combs and sharing hats. Lice don’t like to leave their food supply unless a warm head is waiting for them.
Head lice actually prefer clean hair! It’s more difficult for them to lay eggs on greasy or dirty hair.
