About Lice Happens

Lice infestations happen to many families on a daily basis. Unfortunately, there are many common misconceptions surrounding head lice and how to treat for them. Luckily, Lice Happens is here to help! We are a professional, mobile, and confidential lice treatment and removal clinic that will come to your home to help you and educate your family about head lice.

Our motto is “no shame, no blame!” It is impossible to identify where a lice infestation was caught, or where it came from. However, children are the most susceptible to getting head lice because of the nature in which they interact with each other. Though usually given plenty of space to explore, children are often found grouped closely together, heads pressed against one another for learning, problem solving, or playing. Lice do not jump or fly, but they do crawl rapidly from one head to the next. And that’s that. They spread easily amongst children. Early detection is essential to quickly ending the life cycle of head lice.

If your child has been sent home with head lice, try not to fret. With our tried and true lice removal and treatment methods, we’ll have your family back to normal in no time. When we arrive at your home, we’ll be in logo-free vehicles to ensure your privacy. Our mobile lice clinics come with everything we need to solve your lice problems in just one visit. We take great honor in being invited into your home and you will be treated with dignity, respect, and compassion. We have helped many families like yours.

Our specialists go through extensive training to learn accurate facts about head lice and how to remedy a lice infestation. We are very experienced at helping young children get rid of lice and we employ calming techniques to sooth them during the treatment process, which makes the entire treatment more comfortable for everyone.

We begin by screening each member of the family for head lice. Though children are the most susceptible, adults are not immune to catching lice themselves. All it takes is a cuddle with an infected child for lice to spread. Again, there is no blame when it comes to a lice infestation, it happens. Once we’ve identified those suffering an infestation, we’ll begin our treatment process.

Our treatments are made from pesticide free, environmentally friendly, non-toxic ingredients. They are safe for people of all ages, will not harm the skin, and have no side effects. Over-the-counter remedies are ineffective (lice are adapting to them) and are full of harsh toxic chemicals that are not safe for your family. Steer clear of these remedies if you can.

We combine our treatments with combing techniques that our specialists take time to master. We use fine toothed metal lice combs to remove lice eggs (nits), young lice (nymphs), and adult lice from the hair and scalp. We take the time to teach parents these same techniques for follow up care in the days after treatment and for future use should the need ever arise again. When we’re finished with treatments, hair will look and feel like you just left a salon, but you never even had to leave the comfort and privacy of your home!

In addition to teaching practical screening and combing skills, we also educate and empower families about lice. Some of the common misconceptions about head lice include how hygiene plays a role and how to clean a home after an infestation. Lice do not discriminate. We will teach you the facts about proper home care, how lice spread, who get head lice, how to treat for head lice, and many other topics. We will also provide your family with tips for preventing a lice outbreak from happening to you again. Though we hope you never experience a lice outbreak again in the future, should your child become re-introduced to head lice from a different source down the road, you should feel empowered to tackle lice on your own.

Lice Happens will not take advantage of you, your stress during this time, or your wallet. We understand how stressful this situation can be. We will not take over your home with home sanitizing gimmicks nor will we try to sell you gadgets that promise shortcuts to the eradication of head lice. These gimmicks and gadgets are unnecessary and don’t work. Our services are comprehensive, honest, and effective. We will get you back to your normal routine, enjoying everything Richmond, Virginia has to offer as quickly as possible.
