Kendall, Kendall, Kendall!!
There are certain family subjects that are uneasy on the eye and mind, especially when it comes to anything being remotely close to questioning our cleanliness and personal hygiene. I notice this specifically in moms and dads that are extra conscious and careful of their kid’s environments.
But Kendall, the truth is that no matter how clean or how careful you or one of our kids are, they always have the chance of contracting head lice.
Not Everyone’s Scalp is Coveted by Lice
Personally, I am a dad of three princesses, and I am here to tell you that one of my daughters is more prone to head lice than the others. As a matter of fact, the other has never had lice! In retrospect, I believe the type of hair or scalp and oils that your skin produces is more often the cause of attraction like honey to these magnificent but annoying creatures.
We Judge, then we Become Experts
For the most part, when no one in our family has had to deal with the situation of head lice in the home, it is quite easy to unconditionally shame on other families because we are not aware of the implications.
Once a family member contracts this temporary invasion from these little buggers, we realize that this can and will happen to many in our community. We feel more empathy towards other families and are quick to share our remedies that helped with our prior situation. If we confess to it!
Head Lice Education and Preventative Measures are the Best Cure
My point is that the more educated we are on this subject, the better we will be as a whole community. Why community? Because your kids and my kids, as well as adults, share public spaces like schools, Ubers, restaurants, gyms, camps, parks, etc.
The truth of the matter is that every parent who cares for his or her family would hate to see their children infested with lice which can lead to other consequences such as school absences, and missing social gatherings. And for one, lice removal services aren’t exactly as popular as restaurants, making it hard to find help.
Lice Troopers, an Option in Kendall
We want to help in this department since we are all about KENDALL!, We want to let you know about Lice Troopers. A company based out of South Beach with offices throughout Florida and expanding quickly. They have an office right here in Kendall on 132nd Ave and Kendall Drive.

Should you check online for a professional lice removal service, you will find tons of providers who may end up confusing you. Of course, you want the best for your children and entire family making it very crucial to know the difference between methods of removal, services provided, and techniques. So what should you look at in order to de-stress and keep your sanity during an inconvenient time? Below we have highlighted the 5 basic and crucial steps to take when someone in the family acquires head lice.
5 Basic Steps to Take When Someone in The Family Acquires Head Lice.
1. Their Credibility
Though laws vary from state to state, every lice treatment center must be registered to legally operate as a business. Having a certificate of registration is one of the surest ways that the services they offer are approved and not harmful to their customers. You can breathe easier knowing that you are in good hands.
2. Their Experience
It is always advisable to visit a lice removal clinic that has been in operation for at least 5 years. This will give you the assurance that the fully trained lice specialists have the capacity to handle even the most cumbersome and messy situations. Typically, being in the field for 5 years shows that they have the capacity to run a lice treatment salon efficiently.
3. Their Qualification
Lice treatment involves specialized training to ensure that all lice and nits are removed from the affected person(s). This work is not for the impatient, the unsociable or the faint of heart. Some places use dangerous chemicals, or heating equipment in their processes making it even more critical that removal experts are properly trained. Though this isn’t the case with Lice Troopers (they use an all-natural and safe technique), the overall qualifications of a lice removal salon are something to consider.
4. Their Quality of Work
This involves checking at their efficiency when dealing with a customer at the lice clinic. Though hard to tell if you are a first time client, look for positive online reviews prior to booking an appointment and a guarantee that services work. Head lice can be very stubborn at times; that’s why you need a long-lasting and a sure way of dealing with them.
5. Their Treatment Method
As previously mentioned, there are various ways of dealing with lice ranging from all-natural to the use of drugstore chemical treatments. Though you want to rid yourself and home of this critters immediately, choosing a hazardous product to treat lice and then worrying about the adverse after-effects is not exactly a zen and healthy approach worth investing in. Hiring a lice specialist who uses safe and non-toxic treatment methods is the preferred route.
Remember, life is too short to worry and panic over contracting head lice. Promoting good health and well-being in addition to effectiveness are key indicators when selecting a lice treatment salon. They must be proactive in dealing with the situation at hand, leaving you confident with their level of service and ability to provide you a solution. With the above factors in mind, you can be sure to have the best lice treatment salon for your family.
