I called at 8am and Lex was there by 10, everyone got checked and lice removed by noon. It was so convenience to have everyone at home so I could do laundry, send emails, and keep siblings entertained while Lex worked. She was also very informative and helped us understand how to handle and prevent lice infestations. Would totally use them again!read more

Holy hannah, Lex is a LIFESAVER! Here are the top 5 reasons why I love her and this company!1. She is prompt with her communication. She emailed me back at 11pm the night I messaged her to set up an appointment, and she was able to get us in for a next day appointment!2. She saved us hours and hours of lost time at a lice clinic! I was able to cook, clean and carry on life while she worked on our family.3. She is *extremely* knowledgable about lice and gave us amazing research-based advice about how to clean the house and prevent future outbreaks.4. She stays true to her word of 30-day guarantee! Unfortunately, we suffered a second lice outbreak within the 30 days, and she came back to help us out free-of-charge. (We have since narrowed down the issue to our gym's daycare so we are officially pulling our kids from this program! Ugh!)5. We successfully used our HSA account to cover the cost!read more

We had a great experience with Alexis and are grateful to have such a quick response for an in-home lice check and removal. She was prompt, pleasant and good. What else could we ask for?

This was one of the best experiences I’ve ever had with an in-home lice treatment. The technician was right on top, very proficient and super friendly. As much as one could enjoy the experience of removing nits, this was it! Thank you Lice Charmers!read more

Lex was super friendly and professional. This was a hard experience for my foster kids, but she made it better. She was easy to schedule with and very educated and understanding with my concerns. Having her in my home was easier than going to a salon, making it easier to care for my traumatized kiddos. She showed them compassion and respect. I am completely happy with our experience.read more

So friendly and convenient!! Lex knows her stuff and is so thorough. Anyone that has ever dealt with lice time and time again knows how time consuming it can be. She allowed me time away from dealing with the tedious treatment and combing to continue on with my endless parental responsibilities and for that I am endlessly grateful!read more

I always had this idea in my head that if my kids ever got lice that I would be able to take care of it myself. Trust me: you can, but you don’t want to. Your time and sanity and piece of mind is worth more than that. You love yourself more than that. Why do you work so hard and make decent money if you can’t spend it on those things that truly make your life better? Things like a quiet weekend on the coast, high octane fuel for your car, name brand sliced cheese.Picture this: your child starts scratching the back of their head, during dinner and ON A SCHOOL NIGHT. “Oh no”, you think to yourself. Please no. Not this, not now, the new season of Bob’s Burgers just started and you’ve got 3 episodes burning a hole in your DVR. You’ve already chilled the Chardonnay and you can practically feel the freedom associated with stepping out of the work “undergarments” and into your jammies and the quiet of comfort of the “post-kids-bedtime”.You reluctantly part the hair on the back of their head, the way the heroine in the slasher film may pull back the drapes to reveal the horrors behind. And, of course, it’s lice. And not just a few. Those parasites have been having a 3 week bender on your kids’ head and they’ve pulled permits to start building gated communities.You remember what happened last time they got lice? Yeeeeah. Hours bent over their greasy heads, in low light while they squirm and complain about the hair pulling. Load after load of laundry. The itching of your own scalp... “do I have it? Is it psychosomatic? Both?” Your heart sinks, the dreams of jammies and a solid Chardonnay buzz fading quickly.But hey! Don’t worry! You can still get your drink on AND get those kids in bed on time! We called Lex with Lice Charmers and she was in our house within one hour reassuring us, picking nits and bugs and we were lice free in time for bed. That Chardonnay tasted amazing.They are very professional, they are fast, courteous, clean and kind.You owe it to yourself and your children to get this taken care of TODAY. It’s worth every penny. I will call them every time from now on. #licecharmersforliferead more

After discovering a single tiny bug on one of my kids while on vacation, I immediately went into crazed action. Said child was treated and all of us were meticulously checked. Ongoing checks for more bugs continued daily. 8 days of and nits were found on all 3 kids. Probably me too since I have little faith in my husbands lice/nit finding skills. All of us were treated. Days of checking and sure enough more nits on one child. I was at my whits end. I called a company that our pediatrician recommended that has a local office. They were polite on phone but said they assign one tech to our family to screen and treat each member 1.5 hrs for average treatment. There are 4 of us!!! That just wasn’t reasonable with young kids that have set schedules I.e. meals, baths bedtime. I booked since I didn’t feel I had many options. After trying to figure out how to make that long appointment work for us, I decided to do some research. I found Lice Charmers just searching online. They didn’t have many reviews but the ones they had were all good. They are mobile, they come to your home to screen and treat in an unmarked vehicle. Lex was so friendly and efficient. She had us all throughly screen and 1 treatment in under 2 hours. We were able to maintain our normal routine and have the green light to live normally with no fear of a return. I wish I used her first before using OTC toxic chemicals on my kids heads. This company will be my go to if we ever have to deal with these annoying bugs again.read more

From head to head contact such as hugging, cuddling, taking photos together, or other similar activities where one person’s hair comes in contact with another. Most often it spreads from children to their parents, especially the mother and daughters. if left untreated, it can infest the entire family.

It is very unlikely to catch lice from any objects because they can only survive off of a human head for about 24 hours before they dehydrate and die. It is possible to catch it from a hat or other head covering, but that is only in a very severe case of head lice because leaving the head is a death sentence.

They are super because they are resistant to conventional lice shampoos and other treatment products. They adapted to these chemicals over time and have spread across the united states. Treatment for super lice is best handled by a professional lice specialist who can take the time to comb through the hair and remove the adult lice and their nits (lice eggs).

No. Conventional health insurance plans do not cover lice treatment no matter what you may read on lice company websites. However, most FSA (flexible savings accounts) and HSA (health savings accounts) will work for professional lice removal. Usually, you can pay using the debit card that was provided to you, but you may be required to get an invoice with a list of patients to authorize payment or reimbursement after the fact.

Unless you are looking for a referral, paying for a doctor or pediatrician visit is not a good use of your time or money.  The reason is that most prescriptions for lice will not take care of the problem and since they are not covered by health insurance you will be stuck paying more to get rid of lice than if you had just hired a professional. The reason for this is that these prescriptions work by poisoning your blood, which the lice eat, but it doesn’t take care of the unhatched nits. By the time they hatch the prescription will have worn off and it won’t be strong enough to kill these new lice. Unfortunately, it isn’t safe to take the prescription multiple times so your doctor won’t be able to prescribe it again for fear of causing health complications.

Additionally, most doctors have very limited experience with head lice and may not correctly diagnose an active infestation from an inactive one.

Relatively new, lice services have become the best method to get rid of lice quickly. They may call themselves salons, clinics, centers, or facilities, but they are perform the same basic service. Since they rise of pesticide resistant lice, head lice removal professionals have sprouted up across america and offer lice and nit combing and home cleaning. Even though some of these businesses are over a decade old, many parents have no heard of them, until they get lice and find out the hard way how difficult it is to eliminate.

Dandruff is is easily removed from a hair. Lice cling to the hair and nits are securely glued and can be slid up and down the hair but do not fall off easily.

Dandruff is off-white and it’s shape varies. Lice are either translucent or reddish brown. Nits are either white or dark brown colored and always shaped like a teardrop.

Dandruff goes away with regular shampooing. Lice and nits do not.

All nits are teardrop shaped, securely connected to the hair, can slide up and down the hair but do not fall off by themselves. Nits are white or a shade of brown an easily identified with a magnifying glass.

Nits are hard and can be popped.

A dry scalp makes your head itch. Dandruff is a result of dry scalp.

Lice cannot live off a human head for more than 24 hours, so no they cannot live for very long on pillows or sheets.

In very rare cases, lice can go away on it’s own, but that is only if there were very few lice to begin with and they died before reproducing or their eggs did not hatch or did not hatch and live long enough reproduce.

Yes, but it will be painfully hot and impossible to heat up every inch of scalp’s surface without a louse moving from one spot to another to escape the heat and survive.

Lice like any type of hair that is connected to a human head where they can feed. You can’t clean lice away or prevent catching them by shampooing.

Shave off all the hair or hire a professional. Otherwise, you need to use a lice comb or pick them off one by one. Either method will take hours per person for an average infestation.

It takes no time at all for a louse to move from one head to another. Most people do not know they have it until they’ve been infested for about four weeks.
