CREEPY CRAWLY READS BOOKS TO HELP KIDS DEAL WITH LICE

When kids get lice, treating them is a twofold proposition. Most obviously, you want to get rid of the little buggers ASAP – not only to eliminate your child’s itchiness and discomfort, but also to prevent spreading the infestation. The other aspect of a lice outbreak that parents must address is emotional in nature – the shame and embarrassment a child often feels as a result of having head lice.

Books can be a great way to start a conversation about head lice and take a lighthearted look at the situation. Whether read at home together or given to a teacher whose class has experienced an outbreak, here are a few titles to get you started:

MY FAMILY HAS LICE! What Do I Do?

It’s not as bad as you think

Whether it’s a dreaded call from the school nurse or the discovery of nits after a slumber party, discovering that your child has head lice is always bad news. The good news is that by taking action quickly, you can make the process of eliminating head lice in your family relatively painless. What’s more, there are some pesky myths out there that make lice removal in the home seem a whole lot worse than it actually is. Read on for our top tips to take control of a lice outbreak in your household.

  • Take action NOW. This is not the time to procrastinate in the face of an unpleasant task. Start the process ASAP to quickly eliminate head lice and prevent the infestation from spreading. That means letting school, child care, and friends know about the problem.
  • Get head checks for the entire family. If one person under your roof has lice, there’s a good possibility that others are infected as well. That’s why it’s best to have everyone in the family examined. Lice Lifters DFW offers professional head checks, and the examination fee is applied toward treatment if lice are found.
  • Get professional treatment. As a mom who has battled head lice, I can tell you that enlisting professionals will save you both time and serious anguish. In fact, when you follow the Lice Lifters DFW protocol, we guarantee the success of our treatment.
  • Clean wisely, not widely. While the idea of lice may disgust you, there’s no need to obsessively disinfect your entire home. Unlike fleas, lice require a human host to survive, so lice won’t lay eggs on sofas or stuffed toys. They don’t live on pets, and they don’t jump or fly. You’ll want to wash any bedding, clothing, and personal items (like brushes) that those infected have been in contact with over the past couple of days. In addition, a routine vacuuming of floors and furniture is in order. If you’re paranoid about pillows, plush bedtime buddies, or even hats and hair accessories, a spin on your dryer’s hot setting should put your fears to rest. Toxic insecticides and foggers are simply not necessary.

Hands down, the most important thing you can do to rid your household of lice is to make sure your family’s heads are lice free. At Lice Lifters DFW, we can not only eliminate lice and nits quickly, but we’ll do it using our nontoxic, natural treatment solution with no harmful pesticides. In addition to our regular business hours, we also offer after hours appointments upon request. Just call us at 972-805-1308 or email me at infodfw@licelifters.com.

HOW LICE LIFTERS IS DIFFERENT

3 Reasons to Choose Our All Natural Treatment

If you’re reading this, chances are you’ve discovered head lice in your family. And if you’re like most parents, you are now feverishly researching the best means to eliminate these unwelcome visitors. As a mom who’s been in your shoes, I get it. After attempting to rid my kids of lice through various and sundry means, I learned a lot about what works best. In fact, the experience led me to open Lice Lifters Treatment Center. The bottom line? Our approach is different from any of the nit-picking and lice removal competition. Here’s how:

Lice Lifters is Non-Toxic

Some services use only a nit comb. Other treatments involve harmful pesticides. Both approaches are flawed. Missing a single nit with a comb can mean a whole new outbreak down the road. And pesticides are not only toxic to your child, but lice have become resistant to them – they are only 50% effective at killing head lice.

Lice Lifters offers a unique one-two punch in the salon. First, The Lice Lifters ® all-natural treatment kills 99.9% of live head lice in just 10 minutes, without use of harmful chemicals or pesticides. Second, we use a proprietary, micro-grooved nit comb to remove the offenders. After salon treatment, you’ll receive detailed instructions for follow up treatment at home. This non-toxic approach is the safest, most effective treatment available today.
