Lice Removal Appointment Preparation
6 Things To Do Before Your Appointment
- Print & fill out our Client History Form (or we can simply provide these to fill out upon your arrival.)
- Wash and dry your hair.
- Brush or comb your hair free of tangles.
- Do not apply any hair care products. (Gels, hair spray, etc.)
- Wear a button-up shirt for easy removal and bring an extra shirt to wear home after treatment.
- Bring all your household members to be checked. This helps to minimize reinfestation.
Remember, you can relax now, we got this! We will go over everything in detail with you before you leave, including what & where to clean in your home. You will leave here with a sense of calm, and peace of mind…we are in this together with you all the way.
What to Expect During Your Appointment
Once you arrive, and fill out our simple intake form. We will bring you into our bright & clean salon treatment area and begin the process of lice removal. Know that we use a safe, effective, non-toxic, strand-by-strand lice removal process known as “The Shepherd Method™” to eliminate all evidence of lice from your head. It will take awhile, so read on for information about our center. We have activities and make it cozy while you are waiting.
How Long Should I Plan to be There?
Times for treatment will vary depending on cooperation, severity, length, and thickness of hair. Estimated time for removal will depend greatly on length of hair and level of infestation. Treatments can be completed in as little as 45 minutes on up to 3 hours for someone with a more severe infestation and long hair.
WiFi, Cable TV, and Coloring Books
We have a variety of things to do during your appointment:
- coloring books
- children's books
- Cable TV
- Free Wifi
- Cozy adult seating area
Feel free to bring a snack or your favourite DVD if you'd like, or you can even order in food from nearby restaurants as well.
Tell a Friend
What we like to say is, “be a friend, tell a friend!” We encourage you to notify your school, any friends your children may have recently been in contact with, and remember it’s not just who or where your child got the lice, but who they may have been in contact with and gave it to as well. Not telling puts your child at risk for re-infestation.
Also, if you'd like, we are happy to contact anyone for you, confidentially without sharing your name and info to them.
