Last Thursday was a particularly busy day at our Lice Treatment Center. I returned home after 6:00 that evening to the usual….make dinner, check homework, baths etc. I had already told myself that it was time to comb through my girls’ hair because it had been over a week since I had done so because we were out of town for spring break. As my youngest daughter was in the bath, I noticed what looked a nit on a strand of hair on her forehead. I quickly examined it further and sure enough, that’s exactly what it was!! Having been through this before, (and having a slight advantage with my chosen profession) I quickly applied the enzyme product we use at the center and started making all the phone calls. Within 30 minutes I had checked and cleared my other daughter, and three of our neighbor’s children. Then I began my 5th stand by strand treatment of the day on my own child at 8:30 at night. Luckily I caught it very early (due to weekly combing) and I was able to get through her hair relatively quickly. I realized that there would be no way I would be able to locate the source of this infestation because we had been all over the place last week, as we are pretty much every week. So I just informed everyone that I could think of including her teacher and homeroom mother. I also realized that I had allowed my daughter to wear her down last week and had run out of our mint shampoo (Lice Beware shampoo of course) Any way all of my friends got a laugh out of it and I can truly say…..I am not only the co founder of Lice Beware…..I’m also a client!!!!
