Our goal is to remove all the lice and nits in a single visit and to educate your family on lice prevention. We believe that the best lice treatment option includes being serviced by lice removal specialists in the privacy and comfort of your own home. It is the easiest place to gather all family members, to put young children at ease, and to leave you free to do some de-lousing laundry and vacuuming, or to relax and learn about lice removal while we work. By the time we are done, your family will be lice free…we guarantee it!”

Not sure if it’s lice that you’re seeing? We can do a head check screening to look for evidence of lice. If it’s a false alarm we’ll teach you what to look for and show you how to check for future infestations.

We also want to educate the community about head lice treatment and prevention. Therefore, we offer a Head Lice Educational presentation to area school PTAs, community organizations and other groups at no charge.

MEET BARBARA GIPS, FOUNDER & LICE REMOVAL SPECIALIST
I know what you are going through because I have been there.

The first time I dealt with lice was when my oldest daughter was in kindergarten. (back in 1995)

I received a note home from the school nurse explaining what lice is and that I must treat her with an over-the-counter product before she would be allowed back in school. Well, I had never even heard of lice before this, so needless to say, I was totally freaked out! I did what the school asked, but as I now know, I went completely overboard in regards to cleaning, laundry, throwing things out and especially in using a toxic treatment product on my daughter’s head.

My three children have gotten lice many times over the years (Nine cases in total!). With each infestation I did research and learned more about how to naturally and effectively treat head lice. Then during one episode I had my “Aha!” moment. I had created a head lice treatment process that worked, which utilized natural products, was more effective at removing lice and nits than anything else I had tried, and best of all, my kids didn’t mind it!

After helping friends and family for years, my sister-in-law suggested I go into the lice removal business. After I stopped laughing at the idea I realized that it was a perfect fit for me. I am extremely detail oriented (my family has always referred to me as being a nitpicker), and I like working with my hands (I was previously a decorative painter doing murals and faux finishes). I get satisfaction out of being able to help other mothers who are in the freaking out stage or who are frustrated with products and methods that haven’t worked. By the time I leave someone’s home, they are calm, educated about lice removal and prevention, and are confident that their family is lice free.

You do not have to go through this ordeal alone. Consider me as your ‘friend in the lice business’…someone you can call on to come over and rescue you before you shave off all of your daughter’s hair in frustration. (That is not a solution that I recommend for either girls or boys, by the way.) I am here to help you and I’m just a phone call away!
