Lice Happens East Harlem

When it comes to head lice, hygiene doesn’t play a role.  Lice do not discriminate at all.  The number of baths a person takes, their ethnicity, and their gender play no part in which people lice choose as hosts.  Children are most susceptible to getting head lice, but adults can get them too.  Because of how children explore the world and interact with one another, they enable lice to spread quickly and easily among their peers.  Though often given plenty of space to learn, play, and explore the world, children do not value personal space the same way adults do.  Kids are often seen with their heads pressed together over a project or huddled together on the playground.  Lice do not fly or jump, but they can crawl quickly.  The only thing that is required for lice to spread is head-to-head contact between an infected person and a new host.

It is impossible to pinpoint the source of head lice.  There is no blame when it comes to a lice infestation.  Lice Happens understands that this can be a stressful and embarrassing time for you, your child, and/or your family though.  This is why we offer private in-home services to families.  While you are not required to report a lice outbreak, we advise at least telling the parents of children your kids play with and the school nurse.  If the children your kids play with had head lice, we are sure you’d like to know.  School nurses are experienced at delicately handling lice outbreaks and can discreetly inform other parents about an outbreak without giving you up as the reporting party.  When other parents have the information, the spread of lice ends more quickly.

One of the most important things you can do as a parent is to treat head lice quickly and efficiently.  Sometimes parents don’t know where to turn.  That’s what we’re here for.  When we arrive at your home we will screen every member of your home for head lice.  Some people don’t display the common “itchy scalp” symptom of having head lice so it’s important to manually check everyone.  Once we’ve identified all hosts, we will provide treatments to those requiring care.  This helps to end the life cycle of head lice in your home.  We will also teach you our manual screening process.  We recommend regular screenings for children.  This is not a hard thing to do, but can save you a lot of stress in the future.

Our treatments are 100% effective, safe, and natural.  We don’t use any treatments that contain harsh chemicals or pesticides like those found over-the-counter.  Our treatments are environmentally friendly and have no side effects.  They are safe for all ages.  Our treatment specialists are highly trained individuals who have experience treating young children and will employ soothing techniques to calm children during the entire treatment process.  One of our goals at Lice Happens is to make the entire treatment process as comfortable as possible for everyone.

We use fine toothed metal lice combs to remove lice eggs (nits), young lice (nymphs), and adult lice from the hair.  Some treatments that can be bought over-the-counter make it impossible to see what you’re trying to remove from the hair.  Our treatments allow us to get a clear view of what we need to remove to make sure that person is lice free.  We will teach you how to comb hair using a lice comb so you can provide follow up combing in the days after the initial treatment.  This is also a skill you will want to have should your child ever become re-infected from another source in the future.

We provide families with all of the knowledge they need to feel empowered when it comes to head lice.  Though we hope you never have to deal with a lice infestation again in the future, we also believe that knowledge is power.  We discuss myths vs. facts that surround head lice, who gets lice, how lice spread, hygiene, home care, what lice are, and many other topics.  We will provide your family with tips on how to prevent lice infestations in the future as well.  This knowledge, combined with screening and combing skills will make you a lice expert by the time we leave your home.

We will never take advantage of you, your home, or your money.  We understand what a stressful time this is for you and our specialists will treat you and your family with dignity, compassion, and respect.  We will never delay treatments to charge you for extra time.  We won’t try to upsell you with gimmicks or gadgets that promise shortcuts to the lice removal process, there are no shortcuts.  We won’t take over your home with unnecessary home sanitizing techniques.  We will guarantee that by the time we leave your home, you’ll be lice free and back to enjoying everything New York City has to offer!
