Sara worked in the social work field with children who missed excessive school days due to head lice. It became her goal to one day have a clinic that could help children get back to school quickly and save families time and money.
In 2017, Andrea had her first personal experience with head lice when her daughter came home from school with an active case. Andrea raced to the pharmacy to buy one of the traditional over-the-counter products and spent days combing the products through her daughter’s hair. But, despite spending a lot of time and money (on toxic products that don’t work), she just wasn’t able to defeat the infestation. Andrea called Sara for help.
Together, Andrea and Sara searched on-line for a professional lice treatment company who would help, with no success.
That’s when the two friends had an “ah ha” moment! They knew they couldn’t be the only families in their area that had to deal with head lice and couldn’t find a professional to help them. So, they decided to start a business to offer families easy access to professional lice checks and lice treatments using non-toxic lice products.
