Beware of this Prescription,
A 61 year old grandmother asked me to please raise awareness of a lice removal chemical call MALATHION prescribed to her by her dermatologist. She contracted head lice from visiting her grand children during the summer at a summer camp that they were attending in Maine.By the time she realized that she had lice two months had passed by and she was infested, so she decided to pay a visit to her dermatologist to request something to get rid of the lice, and he replied by saying "I'll give you something strong, your hair may fall out, but you won't have anymore lice". At the time she didn't make anything of it because she just wanted to get rid of the lice and this meant spending more time with her grandchildren.
After applying Malathion 3 times in the course of three weeks she noticed that she wasn't getting rid of the lice and that's when she came to visit us at our Hair Fairies location in CT. This grandmother was very upset to find out that she was still left with the problem of head lice. We at Hair Fairies were able to deal with her lice problem once and for all, but unfortunately
that wasn't the end of her problems. Prior to her coming back to Hair Fairies for her guarantee check a few weeks after her last treatment she called to cancel her check because she wasn't feeling well. Little did she know that this prescription Malathion had poisoned her bloodstream that the levels of toxicity found in her blood were extremely high. She end up being admitted to the hospital two days with her eyes being blood shot and doctors couldn't determined what was wrong with her and asked if she was around or dealing with plant fertilizers, until her husband went home and got the box of Malathion home to show the doctor, and that's when the doctor said that a woman at her age wasn't supposed to have this chemical prescribed. This grandmother called me and asked me to raise awareness of this chemical because she doesn't want anyone going through the same ordeal that she had to go through.
In Dallas, we were treating six year old Jillian, While in the chair, she drew a picture, that amazed everyone here at Hair Fairies. I later asked Jillian, what she wanted to be when she grew up. Her answer shocked me, she turned and said, "I want to be a tattoo artist, like Kat Von D!" Her mother then turns to me and says in a joking way, "Well... I guess I'll let your father know so we can stop paying private school tuition. Jillian you're going to break your dads heart!" We all laughed. In the end I told Jillian her possibilities in life are endless!
A client came in because she believed she had head lice. She had found a bug on her head the previous day. When she showed me the bug, I told her that this bug was not head lice, but I proceeded to check her. I told her that the bug looked more like a bed bug than head lice. The bug was reddish brown, and looked rounder than a louse. When I checked her, I concluded that she did not have lice. She left happy knowing she did not have head lice, but afraid that what she found on her head was a bed bug. The difference between head lice and bed bugs is that bed bugs are rounder. While both bugs are brown, head lice is a darker brown, and bed bugs are a lighter brown and red.
A cute lice quote where head lice is compared to family members. Head lice is so common that all we can do is deal with it and try to joke about it to make us feel more at ease.
I Could Kiss You
A frantic mother came to our location in CT because she had treated her daughters for head lice but didn't have anyone to check her and she was afraid of giving it back to them, she was very nervous and tense but after the screening process we gave her the great news that she was clear, and boy did she get happy, she said "I COULD KISS YOU RIGHT NOW, YOU MADE MY DAY".
She also took the time to write a great review for us on Yelp!!!
3 brothers come in to
Hair Fairies to get treated and decided to come up with a villain. His name
would be LICE MAN and he would have the powers to "bug" people. He
would be able to crawl from person to person and make their scalp itchy. He also
had the power to spread to different people with super fast lightning speed.
Everyone would want him to stay away, but he would always find a way to get on
you by using a brush or a hat from someone who had met LICE MAN. The boys also
decided to come up with a superhero to fight LICE MAN, but that will have to
wait until they return and meet the Hair Fairies again. To be continued...
Lice Checks after camps,
It is very important that kids get their lice checks right before camp and soon after.
As was the case of a girl that her mom got her checked before she went to camp and
when she arrived home she brought her daughter right off the bus from camp to our Hair Fairies
location in CT. The mom couldn't believe that her daughter had gotten lice while in camp for seven weeks
but she was very happy that instead of going home she came here and got her treated for lice before her daughter went
inside her home. This way it was just one daughter that she had to deal with head lice instead of the whole family, and
was able to get rid of the head lice before school started.
Thank you Prep Salon for having us come to their hair salon to do a workshop on head lice awareness and prevention. They added new stylists to their team and it was nice to come back and re-educate the team on what to do when their clients who are predominantly kids have head lice.
Prep Salon is strictly for kids haircuts and offer a high end ultra cool atmosphere for the kids to be pampered and get cool preppy haircuts!
We had a thank you card from a school we went to today for a head lice screening and we are happy to have them write us a card! It was nice and very thoughtful! We appreciate the kind letter!
A client who had never had head lice before called frantically and said she found a bug on her head and she believed it was head lice. As we spoke trying to book an appointment, she said she could see some walking on her arm. I then asked her to take a picture of the bug and send it to me. When I saw the picture it was in fact body lice. I told her to call her doctor and unfortunately we do not treat body lice here. She would have to call her doctor. Head lice and body lice have a similar appearance. The major difference between the two is its habitat. Head lice live on the hair, while body lice live anywhere on the body. Head lice put their eggs on the hair shaft while body lice put their eggs on fibers of clothing. We wish her the best of luck and hope the problem gets resolved.
A Japanese family came to Connecticut on vacation. They were excited to have stumbled across our head lice removal salon. Mom had been struggling for months trying to get rid of her daughters head lice. The school just kept sending her home with notices, mom would treat and this cycle was ongoing.
Mom needed a break and decided they were coming to CT to meet with family, relax and try to forget about the lice for a bit. Taking a stroll in Fairfield, going in to all the boutique shops they stumbled upon the salon. They could not believe they had finally found the solution to moms grief.
After two treatments daughter was finally lice free. Mom could finally relax.
Daughter said " See mom, now you can really have a LICE vacation".
Mary: why are you scratching your head?
Amber: ive got those arithmetic bugs again
Mary: arithmetic bugs-what are they
Amber: well, some people call them head lice.
Mary: then why do you call them arithmetic bugs?
Amber: because they add to my misery, subtract from my pleasure,
divide my attention and multiply like crazy
Being a teenager these days is hard -- being a teenager with head lice is near impossible! With all the pressure of making friends and first impressions, clothes and boys and girls, the last thing any teen wants is to have to deal with head lice. I dealt with a teenage case recently, which are very familiar to me, but I couldn't convince 'G' that having head-lice was not the worst thing that could happen to her no matter how hard I tried. I assured her that she would leave the salon 100% head lice free and that I would not stop until I did my job. When I was all done with her treatment I told her she had the cleanest scalp I had ever seen on a teenager. When her mom and brother came to get checked the next day her mom thanked me for ending G's treatment on a positive note because she went home that night and bragged to everyone about her super clean scalp --- forgetting she ever had head lice!
