Recently we had a client come in to get treated at our salon, unfortunately for her this was not her first rodeo. She's caught it every year and has been a very loyal customer of ours for a while now, this will be her 3rd time catching lice.
She kept wondering why this always has to happen her, especially since she is in high school now. There are many factors that come into play when it comes to catching lice: sleep overs, airplane rides, sharing clothing, hair-to-hair contact(hugging, selfies, cuddling etc.), public upholstery, and so on.
It can be hard to pin point to where exactly you have caught it. She said she has been very cautious of everything she does, such as wearing shower caps if she has sleep overs, she even been keeping her hair up, and not sharing brushes.
At this point, it is a mystery to her. Lice happens, and for some it occurs quite often. Rest assured, we are here to help make the mysteries of having lice solved. HF BG
Bittersweet of an experience for our client yesterday. Though she had head lice, we know it's not a biggy, and we were able to help make it up with fancy updo and flowers on her hair after we treated her! Happy bday to her and her parents were happy with the end result! She was able to enjoy her bday without any worries! Double yay!
Today Burlingame and San Francisco went to South Hillsborough school, it went very smoothly, no chaos whatsoever. I want to thank them for having us over. Also, the staff were very cooperative and wonderful. We hope to Come back to this school again in the near future to help prevent any future lice outbreaks.
One of the things that Hair Fairies always suggests parents to do is to let their circle of friends know that they are dealing with lice
and to ask their friends to check for any signs of lice as to prevent getting it back again. One mom said to me "well I don't
think that any of our friends have ever had it, i don't recall anyone talking to me about lice". This is something that happens a
lot specially among teenagers everyone is afraid to say something due to all the outdated information that is out there and all the
myths surrounding the topic of head lice.
The same mom during the second lice treatment said to me "you were right, now that I'm dealing with lice and I've contacted my friends and I was surprised to find out that many of them have gone through this lice experience and that no one dared to call me and informed me about it because they were embarrassed."
Head Lice is something that people don't want to talk about and is the same reason why it still goes around, communication is KEY!
Brushing with history,
This week we were treating a client who after discovering she and her daughter had lice was extremely concerned about
what to do with her hairbrush.
This thirty plus mom had managed to hold onto the same hairbrush since she was a small child (seven years old) and it was
given to her as a gift from her grandmother so it had sentimental value to her and now she also used it on her daughter as well.
She thought the she would have to throw it away since she had lice. Once we explained to her that our Eucalyptus laundry additive
could be used to clean hairbrushes she was so relieved.
"Great, I can continue brushing my daughter's hair with history!" she exclaimed.
We had a client come in who was in utter shock that she had head lice. She has no children and doesn't work with children. She couldn't think of anyway of how she got these bugs. Once we were done we were able to tell her how long she's had them. There she was able to narrow down to that she must've gotten it on an airplane when she was traveling. Children are not the only way people can get head lice. You can get them from airplanes and movie theatres as well.
Today we went to a school for a free school screening, We ended up finding 11 positive cases of head lice. We're very fortunate to have partnered up with this school to help be proactive about head lice outbreaks and assist them in preventative measures. Due to our diligent screening today, we are planning on booking another screening for the entire school in the near future. For the positive cases, we offer 20% off for their first treatment.
For any schools out there that need any assistance with a possible screening, please be sure to give us a call at (650)340-9000 or visit our website at www.hairfairies.com

A sweet lady came in with her fiancee to get treated for head lice after her fiancee had tried himself to treat her without any luck.
It was the fiancee's birthday and he was a bit upset that he was spending this special day on a head lice removal salon, so his girl
asked to take a little break form her combing and came back to surprise him with a cupcake.
His face immediately lit up and had a huge smile on his face!
