Finding out your child has lice can be overwhelming, especially if you have other children in the home who it can spread to. But it’s important to know that you are not alone. Help is available – and not just in the form of over-the-counter head lice products. You can also visit a head lice removal salon like My Hair Helpers.
My Hair Helpers has three comfortable salons in Downey, Thousand Oaks and Lawndale in California. We are open by appointment and always happy to see our customers in person! Here are three reasons to schedule an appointment with a head lice salon like ours.
1. You found lice in your child’s hair.
Obviously, the No. 1 reason to visit a head lice salon is because you’ve found lice in your child’s hair. Usually, it’s not difficult to know if your child has lice. They’ll probably start complaining of itching or a crawling sensation on their head. Or you might notice movement near their scalp.
If you’ve confirmed lice, you have a few options:
- You can purchase nontoxic lice treatment and apply it on your own
- You can have a mobile head lice service come to your home to apply the treatment
- You can visit a head lice salon to have the lice professionally treated
There is no right or wrong decision. It all comes down to what you are comfortable doing. Some people like the privacy of handling head lice treatments at home while others prefer having a professional apply the treatment.
2. Your child is complaining that their head itches.
If your child is complaining of an itchy head, your first thought might be head lice. But there are actually other reasons why they might be having these symptoms, including dandruff and dermatitis. Nevertheless, it’s reassuring for parents to have a second opinion, especially when they’re not trained to identify lice.
Visiting a head lice salon allows you to get an accurate diagnosis. You don’t want to use head lice removal products on your child if they don’t have lice – even if it’s “just to be on the safe side.” The unnecessary use of these products has contributed to the increase in super lice. When you visit a head lice salon, you’ll have the peace of mind knowing whether or not your child has lice or something else.
3. Your child was exposed to someone who has head lice.
If someone was kind enough to tell you that their child has lice, or you heard through the grapevine that someone you were exposed to has lice, you can head over to a head lice salon to find out if your family has been affected. In the early stages, there are usually no symptoms. This means that you may not know that someone in your family is carrying lice.
When you schedule an appointment at a head lice salon, you can have your entire family checked. Only trained professionals will perform the check, allowing them to find just one or two active lice. And, if few lice are present, it’s possible we can tackle the problem through wet combing only!
