HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif.
Prevent Lice Outbreak During Quarantine
- March 23, 2020
-- Lice Expert Pam Skinner has noticed an increase in the need for lice prevention, during COVID-19 quarantine. "We are working hard to educate the public about how to prevent an outbreak of head lice. We have two options for people who are concerned about a possible lice outbreak in their family". In her salon, Picky Pam at the Beach, Skinner carefully follows protocol of Medical Advisor, Dr. Matthew Abinante. "We offer free lice checks (with an appointment)
. We want customers to feel confident when coming to our salon. Our treatment chairs are 6-10 feet apart, we sanitize between customers, and we wear gloves during the comb-out". Skinner points out that lice is most often spread by direct head to head contact, lice don't jump or fly. Skinner suggests, keeping heads apart (social distancing, even with family), and color coding hair brushes with pony tail bands on the handle, so families don't share brushes. "We also offer a DIY kit as an option for people who want to check or treat in the privacy and convenience of their own home". The Coco Loco Total Nit Survival Kit
contains everything needed to check for lice and treat up to eight treatments. The kit includes a 16 oz. bottle of Coco Loco All Natural Lice Treatment Spray, the NitNabber Lice Comb, and a 12 oz. bottle of Coco Loco Leave-In Detangler. The kit is available online, with free shipping if people prefer to have supplies delivered ($65 USPS Priority, available at: https://LiceFreeKids.com
) Skinner reports that recently local pediatricians have referred patients, in order to treat a lice outbreak without toxic chemicals. Skinner added, "A few days ago, we had a grandmother with over 1000 eggs and 50 adult bugs. She was very itchy, and doctors were prescribing anti-fungal medications for her. She was relieved to have all the lice removed, without strong medication that might further compromise her immune system. She was very happy, and so were we. Sometimes families forget to check grandma!". More information and tutorial videos about how to check and treat lice at home, visit: https://LiceFreeKids.com.
