Services, Fees & Info

Potomac Lice Lady provides removal of lice for children and family members in a stress free, family friendly environment. Television, books, and even wi-fi are available.

Initial Screening/Head check  

Do you think you have a lice problem? Does someone in your family show symptoms? Lauren/Cindi will examine the family member in question. Examining does not mean looking with the visible eye; we will do a comb through with a lice comb.

Initial Lice Removal  

After deeming that your family member has lice, his/her hair will be combed out.Our Treatment includes the use of a specially designed lice combing aid. This helps the Lice-Inator or LiceMeister comb go smoothly through the hair and helps in the removal of the lice and nits.  The treatment also includes educating and advising you on proper in-home treatment guidelines to ensure ending the life-cycle of the lice in your home. The Lice-Inator and LiceMeister combs used during treatment/screenings and Potomac Lice Lady products are also available for purchase after treatment. We truly believe that these combs are the best professional lice combs available on the market.

Follow-up

7-10 days after the initial lice and nit comb out, it is recommended that you contact Lauren/Cindi to re-examine the client to determine that they are lice free, and if necessary, do another full comb out.
