LOS ANGELES, Sept. 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- From October 1 through Halloween, Hair Fairies will put the spook on head lice by holding a raffle for a new iPhone 5, eligible to clients receiving full treatments in its San Diego, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago and New York City salons.  Lice hidden in reused or shared costumes are ready to go trick-or-treating, but Hair Fairies has a safe solution for frantic families.  From super heroes to princesses, headgear on small revelers can carry lice child-to-child. This is where Hair Fairies, full-service clinical salons devoted to lice removal, goes to work to evaluate, treat and eliminate lice with a 100% guarantee.

"Kids can bring home more than candy during Halloween," said Maria Botham, CEO of Hair Fairies.  "The lice can lurk in seldom-cleaned or hard-to-clean costumes 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 higher than many parents realize.  As the pioneers in this service, we have perfected both non-toxic products and exclusive techniques that work."

To bring the problem top-of-mind this Halloween and in appreciation of its clients, Hair Fairies is offing a potential bonus for full-treatments in its five national salons. One last-name entry per family receiving such treatment may be entered for a drawing on Oct. 31 in each salon.  Each winner will receive a new iPhone 5.  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 usually treat clients in efficient sessions of one to three hours, depending upon the client's condition.  This eliminates parents' guesswork 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 informational 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.
