“As a school administrator, I book the annual lice checks twice a year for the school. It is without hesitation that I always call Amy at My Hair Helpers. She is prompt with her timing and has such a sweet, soft spirit with the students. Her choice of words and kindness always puts our families at ease when having to go through lice treatment. Thank you so much!!!!”
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.
