LOS ANGELES, Nov. 2, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- On "Black Friday," Nov. 25, Hair Fairies will offer free head lice screenings in its San Diego, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago and New York City salons.  With families and relatives sharing close quarters over Thanksgiving travels, lice can travel head-to-head as well.  Hair Fairies, national full-service clinical salons devoted to lice removal, will evaluate early lice detection free of charge.  If needed, their in-salon professionals will treat and eliminate lice at reasonable costs with a 100 percent guarantee of success.

"Kids riding head-to-head on long drives or flights can make lice contagion easy," said Maria Botham, CEO of Hair Fairies.  "Lice also can lurk in shared bedding and spread from children to parents.  About three percent of school children have lice at any given time, so the odds for coming in contact with lice are more common than many parents realize.  As the pioneers in this service, we have perfected not only non-toxic products but also exclusive techniques that work and are the safe solution for frantic families."

To bring the problem top-of-mind this Thanksgiving and in appreciation for its clients, Hair Fairies has a potential bonus for full-treatments in its five national salons.  One last-name entry per family receiving such treatment may enter a drawing on Nov. 21 in each salon.  Each winner will receive a 20-pound all-natural turkey from Whole Foods just in time for holiday entertaining.  Those clients having initial screenings or purchasing products only are ineligible for the raffle.    

Hair Fairies in-salon treatment includes manual removal of lice.  The company's trained professionals treat clients in efficient sessions of one to three hours, depending upon the client's condition.  This eliminates parents' guess work that usually relies upon over-the-counter shampoos that may not be effective.

Hair Fairies has a high success rate because they have a three-step process proven over more than a decade.  They evaluate the stage of infestation, physically "nit-pick" the active lice and eggs from the head and provide treatment to condition the scalp and discourage immediate re-infestation.  This is done based on scientific research and with all-natural, non-toxic shampoos, combs and rinses developed and produced in the company's laboratory in Riverside, Calif.

For parents who want to treat their children or themselves at home, Hair Fairies provides its products and instructions, including a "How To" video, purchased online.  They also offer free lice identification from an e-mailed photo.  In addition, the company provides in-school examinations and information sessions.

Most insurance companies approve at least partial payment of Hair Fairies treatments that also qualify for Flexible Spending Accounts, a validation of the treatments' success.  More information about Hair Fairies, including its at-home program, is available at www.hairfairies.com.
