Facts of Lice

What are head lice?
Head lice are tiny insects that live on the scalp. They lay eggs called nits, which stick to hair very close to the scalp.

How do you get head lice?
By contact with an already infested person. Contact is common during play at school and at home (slumber parties, sports activities, at camp, on a playground).
By wearing infested clothing, such as hats, scarves, coats, sports uniforms, or hair ribbons.
By using infested combs, brushes, or towels.
By lying on a bed, couch, pillow, carpet, or stuffed animal that has recently been in contact with an infested person.

Customer Reviews

Fairy LiceMothers provides a very important service to our community. When you are told that a family member has lice you feel as if your entire life is turned upside down. That is until you go to visit the Fairy LiceMothers . They are compassionate and educated. They fix your problem and put your mind at ease. I do not know what I would've done without them when my daughter had lice. Knowing they are there keeps from stressing out when I hear that lice are going around the school.

Fairy LiceMothers is an asset to our community and provides an important service to many families overwhelmed with lice. I had a personal experience with their company this summer after my daughter contracted lice at her day camp. Michelle and her staff at Fairy LiceMothers were attentive, caring, and professional. They helped my family deal with this problem and I have recommended them to several other families. Their help was invaluable to me and I can't express how grateful I was for it. Theirs is an important community business and should be valued.
