Vaseline Petroleum Jelly to Treat Head Lice

DON'T DO IT! DON'T DO IT!!!! I so understand how alarming it is to be presented with a case of head lice - especially at night when professional head lice services like Elimilice and pharmacies are closed.  You want to eliminate the head lice quickly and must get a start on it!!   However, using petroleum jelly WILL NOT solve the problem.    It might indeed suffocate some of the bugs if you … [Read more...]

Head lice questions answered

I have been "making the rounds," and speaking to concerned families, staff members and administrators at lots of schools and daycares in recent weeks about head lice symptoms, detection, treatment options and prevention.  I was at a lovely private Pre-K through 8 school this morning talking to and answering questions from parents, one of the school's nurses and a few of its … [Read more...]

Head lice removal specialist, Elimilice featured on NBC television affiliate, 11Alive

As Atlanta’s largest head lice removal company, Elimilice, was recently featured as the area's head lice expert in a television segment on NBC-affiliate, 11Alive.  I spoke with the reporter about how I got into this business (after my then 5 year old daughter contracted head lice three times in less than a year), how there is NO reason to be ashamed by having head lice as it is becoming more and … [Read more...]

Client Testimonial for Elimilice

Not too long ago, I posted a blog entry about Gabbie, a beautiful first grader  whom we had treated for head lice.  I wanted to try and dispel a lot of the age-old wives' tales about head lice as well as the notion that those of African descent DO NOT get head lice. Gabbie's mother, Allison, was so very happy with the service as reflected in this … [Read more...]

Magic Cure for Head Lice?

This morning, I took my 8 year old to the pediatrician as she was complaining of a headache, earache, sore throat and stomach ache.  She had an ear infection that required antibiotics.  I had a philosophical conversation with our pediatrician about prescribing such because we’d been in on Tuesday for the same complaints and at that time, she tested negative for strep and did not have an ear … [Read more...]

Head Lice in African American Hair?

There are so many myths and old wives' tales associated with head lice. Many we hear frequently - sometimes several times a day: Head lice jump. Head lice fly. Head lice do not like dirty hair. Head lice can live off the head for two weeks. Head lice nits can hatch after an extended time off the human head. Head lice are killed by chlorine in a pool.

Will a buzz cut of a boy, man or a girl (I guess) eliminate a case of head lice?

Over the years, we’ve had clients – girls and moms on whom we’ve confirmed or detected head lice.  Sometimes we treat them and sometimes they choose to self/home treat.  In any event, they engage in a battle to remove the head lice and except for considering a trim or cutting a few inches if the hair is extremely long or has dry/damaged ends, for the most part, females just seem to accept that … [Read more...]
