Hair Fairies Will Offer "Twofer" Screenings on Sept. 12

LOS ANGELES, Sept. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- September is National Head Lice Month and the top month for head lice as children go back to school after a summer of close encounters with the creepy ecto-parasites. On Wednesday, September 12, Hair Fairies technicians will offer a "twofer" – buy one screening and get one FREE -- to all visitors to their salons located in San Diego, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, New York City and Fairfield, Conn. Hair Fairies also is offering FREE screenings to schools upon request.


"September is the month when head lice seem to explode out of nowhere," said Maria Botham, CEO of Hair Fairies.  "Kids have spent a lot of time together in the summer sharing pillows,  headphones and hats, and team sports have them sharing towels, protective headgear and caps. Children returning to classrooms can bring head lice no longer on vacation either. Our treatments are the safe solution for frantic families because everything we use is USDA organic certified."

Hair Fairies has a high success rate because its three-step process has been proven for more than a decade. The technicians evaluate the stage of infestation (this is what is FREE for the second screening after the first one is purchased on the 12th), physically "nit-pick" the active lice and eggs from the head and provide lice treatment to condition the scalp and discourage immediate re-infestation. Manuel removal of the lice is the only sure way to stop the parasites. This is done based on scientific research and with proprietary non-toxic products such as shampoos, combs and rinses developed and produced to USDA organic certification in the company's laboratory in Calif. Harsh chemicals are never part of Hair Fairies' product ingredients. 

The company's trained professionals eliminate parents' guess work that usually relies upon over-the-counter chemical-based shampoos that may be unnecessarily irritating and not effective.  Hair Fairies exclusive lice treatment products and a "How To" video are available online. 

Most insurance companies approve 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 and special coupons, is available at
