Hair Whisperers Educates Parents & Teachers How to Prevent and Check for Lice
Los Angeles, August 31, 2010 -- The Hair Whisperers, a Southern California head lice removal service, announced today that it will expand its lice education seminar to include prevention tips and hands-on lice check training for parents and teachers. The American Academy of Pediatrics clinical report on head lice, published in the August 2010 issue of Pediatrics suggests "In environments where children are together, adults should be aware of the signs and symptoms of head lice infestation. It may be useful to provide information periodically about the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of head lice to the families of all children." In business since 2006, Hair Whisperers uses safe, non-toxic methods to remove head lice in Southern California. In addition to providing in-home lice removal services to families and screenings at schools, Hair Whisperers has developed a presentation to present to schools focused on education and prevention of head lice. Participants have the opportunity to look at actual lice and nits so they can better identify lice from other debris commonly found in children's hair. Beginning this school year, the presentation will include an option for a hands-on training to help parents and school personnel perform thorough lice checks. For the millions of families affected by head lice each year, Hair Whisperers now provides the education parents need to understand head lice and manage it in their home. Knowing head lice isn't a health hazard or sign of poor hygiene offers parents who are overwhelmed by the presence of lice some peace of mind as they decide how they will offer treatment to their child. "If parents know what lice looks like on their children, they will be able to tackle the problem before it becomes a huge infestation. Untreated lice can infect friends and family members before it is discovered," said Amy Goldreyer, Founder of Hair Whisperers. Goldreyer continues, "By educating parents about lice and how to diagnose it, parents will be better prepared to seek proper treatment and prevent spreading." About The Hair Whisperers - The Hair Whisperers was established in 2006 by Amy Goldreyer to help families get rid of lice in the comfort and privacy of their home. Hair Whisperers strives to offer customers safe, non-toxic lice treatment options to get rid of both lice and nits without the use of potentially harmful over-the-counter or prescription products.
