Services, Fees & Info

Potomac Lice Lady provides removal of lice for children and family members in a stress free, family friendly environment.

Initial Screening/Head check  

Do you think you have a lice problem? Does someone in your family show symptoms? Lauren 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(our version of the Nit-Free Terminator comb) 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 (Nit-Free Terminator) used during treatment/screenings are also available for purchase after treatment or at select stores locally in the area or Amazon. We truly believe that these combs are the best professional lice combs available on the market.


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

For fastest scheduling, please call or text.  Please note that late arrivals may not been be accepted because of the impact late arrivals have on subsequent appointments. We understand that sometimes being late is unavoidable. However, depending on circumstances and availability, we may be forced to shorten or reschedule your appointment. Clients who arrive late will be charged in full for their appointment if forced to reschedule.

Appointments are booked by services that are required. For example, if a lice screening is booked, a shorter amount of time is booked per client than if a client is coming in for a lice treatment.

Please note a credit card is required at the time of booking to make your appointment. A non-refundable deposit will be taken upon booking the appointment; should you cancel your appointment your deposit will not be refunded.

Potomac Lice Lady has a strict cancellation policy. We respectfully ask that you give us 24 hours notice to cancel or reschedule appointments. Appointments canceled in less than than the required time or no- shows will be subject to a fee of 100% of published service prices. * please note that appointments made the same day are subject to our same cancellation policy as well.

Potomac Lice Lady provides removal of lice for children and family members in a stress free, family friendly environment.  **Due to safety concerns of the Potomac Lice Lady salon, we write with the utmost respect to the parents and our clients, we are implementing a new policy. As a business we feel that children who have an appointment MUST be able to sit still so that the technician can fully perform her job without fear of harming the child or themselves. Please understand that our concern is for the safety of your child. If you have any concerns, please feel free to contact us.

Even with the COVID-19 pandemic, parents still need to be prepared to control head lice, too often viewed as a nuisance rather than respected as the infectious disease that it is. A proactive mentality builds community trust that parents will take actions to protect children from being unnecessarily vulnerable. Preparedness empowers parents to send their children to school ready to learn and play, and most importantly, free of communicable diseases.
