School Field Trips
Spring is here and all of our local schools are beginning to take students on field trips. The news of going on a school field trip gets children excited and happy, but it also brings them together when it's time to take pictures. Unfortunately, this is a common way
of coming in contact with head lice. When kids take selfies or pictures they often put their heads close to each other not realizing that head lice can take as little as half of a second to transfer from head to head and that this is an easy and common way for children to give each other lice.
At Hair Fairies we recommend applying our Tea Tree oil as a preventative measure
and have children tie their
hair back in a braid or bun to lessened the chances of contracting head lice. More of our products are
While getting treated
at Hair Fairies our little 5 year old client decided she didn't want to play
games on the iPad anymore. She decided she would FaceTime with her
grandparents, aunt and uncle. She first called her grandma in France and spoke
with her for a little while. She showed her our salon and the technician that
was treating her hair. Next, she
contacted her other grandma in Belgium and we all got to
say hello to both her grandparents.
We then jetted off to Sweden to FaceTime with her uncle who was very happy to
see her. Lastly was Hawaii, where her aunt was celebrating her honeymoon. All
the Fairies got to say congratulations and see the beautiful beach from her
hotel window. Not only did our little client enjoy her treatment time here at
Hair Fairies, we all got to travel around the world and say hello to her family.
Last Friday we had a frantic parent in our salon who was so panicked about head lice that she could hardly sit still! She had a cup of tea, asked us all the right questions and called almost every last contact in her phone to deliver the unfortunate news! About an hour into her daughters treatment,she realized everything was going to be just fine and that she was in fact in good hands. She said our music playlist really helped her get 'it' together. It just goes to show that when everything seems to be going the wrong way, it's the little things that help calm you down.

Here at Hair Fairies, we tell all our clients with daughters that the best way to keep your child(ren) from getting head lice again is by wearing their hair up in a tight bun, or braid and by using our Nit-Zapping Clenz Prevention Oil everyday. Moms always tell us that their daughters don't like wearing their hair up. At http://www.hairfairies.com/
, we always show them different hair styles to try and the girls simply love it.

Wow Is it clean in here!
We often have clients visit our Hair Fairies location in CT, and as soon as they are greeted we hear them say
"Wow is it clean in here!" The main reason our clients are surprised to find our salon so clean is that most people think treating head lice is a dirty process and that lice is associated with filth or dirt. This is one of the biggest myths about lice. It is of the utmost importance for Hair Fairies to service our clients in a clean environment. We clean and disinfect our chairs after each and every client treatment. You can also use our Nit-Zapping Lice Repellent Spray, found on our website at www.hairfairies.com, to make sure your home is lice free!
Lately we have been getting many calls in regards to lice information. R
ecently, we were on the phone with a client for approximately 30 minutesanswering questions about head lice. S
he was very upset and overwhelmed because she had just found out that her child had lice. After speaking with her and answering her questions, she
felt much more at ease. Regardless of if we book an appointment or not, Hair Fairies is always
here to assist you with any concerns and questions that you may have. Feel free to give us a call anytime. http://www.hairfairies.com/
Head Lice have grown resistant to standard OTC treatments
In a recent article in The Journal of Medical Entomology, authored by John Clark, a professor of environmental toxicology and chemistry at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, findings have found that head lice in the United States and Canada have developed a genetic mutation making them almost entirely resistant to over the counter treatments. "This is a problem we've been showing in development over a period of about 20 years. But our new work now shows that head lice are now almost 100 percent resistant to over the counter treatments,” says Clark in a recent interview with WebMD. His studies have revealed that the rate of resistance in the U.S. lice population began to approach 100 percent of the lice population between 2007 and 2009.
Many families are turning to the manual removal process pioneered by us here at Hair Fairies. Our process doesn’t use any of the chemicals included in over the counter remedies, instead we focus on removing the head lice and their eggs from the hair and scalp with a manual comb out with a non-toxic formula. Our all natural product works with the combing process to create a 100% safe treatment process that is guaranteed to be effective and environmentally friendly.
Spring is right around the corner! In nature this means that flowers will soon start to blossom and tons of brand new baby animals will emerge from their caves and deep winter slumbers! Our adorable little client 'C' made this discovery this week. She learned in school how bears sleep during the winter and then come out during spring when it's nice and warm. She didn't start feeling itchy until early this week and she came to the (awfully cute!) conclusion that her bugs were coming out of hibernation, just in time for spring with their babies!
Here at our Hair Fairies location in CT we listen to a lot of stories when we engage in conversation with our clients.
This week a mom was sharing her story about how she was talking to her kids about college and how she became
a professional, when she asked her six year old boy what he wanted to do when he grew up. He replied,
"I want to be a hair looker when I grow up". The mom was
puzzled because she did not know what a "
hair looker" did.
She decided to ask her son. He said " Well you know, the job that the women did when they took the all bugs out"The mom said that she was laughing hysterically, because she hadn't realized that he was talking about Hair Fairies.
She mentioned what a great experience it had been, both for her as well as her son because he wanted to become a hair looker.

When it comes to catching head lice, the first thing that often comes to mind is, "How am I going to treat this?" Usually, parents go to a pharmacy and purchase over-the-counter or prescription products. Unfortunately, these methods are not as effective as they used to be because lice have built up a resistance to these products. Other ineffective remedies include using mayonnaise to smother the lice or vinegar to remove the nits. The most safe, non-toxic and effective way we treat lice is combing through the hair with our Nit-Zapping Clenz Cream.The cream loosens the adhesive of the eggs and ensures an effective comb out.

We have a lovely client who comes in every month to purchase our products. She had a lice scare early in the year and had purchased our products as a precaution She loved them so much that she replaced them with all of her hair products! She says its the only thing that keeps her sane from feeling that horrible itch again! She loves them so much that she sent some to her children in Minnesota so they could also experience "the wonders" its done to her hair!

Last week a local high school student who has been battling lice for almost a year called our Chicago Hair Fairies Salon. Her father is a single parent and they are on a fixed budget and could not afford an in-salon treatment and the methods she was currently using at home were not getting rid of the lice. We convinced both her and her father to visit our salon. During their visit, we counseled them on the products in our Hair Fairies Home Kit, www.hairfairies.com/products/
, showed them how to use the Nit-Zapping Clenz shampoo, cream, and comb, and provided them with collateral information about lice as well as the link to our instructional videos, www.hairfairies.com/video/
. They left confident that they could administer a successful in home treatment and we were happy to help another customer.
Crazy Hair Day,
A seven year old girl that came to our Hair Fairies lice treatment salon in CT prior to her school's crazy hair day event. She was worried that after her lice removal treatment she wasn't going to be able to participate in this fun special day at school. Our technicians said No worries! Hair Fairies to the rescue. We carry our own line of safe nontoxic Manic Panic Hair Dye Colors that will be awesome for your crazy hair day." Our client chose colors for the event so she could show off her new hairstyle at school. After applying our last step which is our Hair Fairies Nit Zapping Clenz Shampoo, we were able to style her hair in what we call a braided bun with crazy hair color that she loved.
