SANTA MONICA, Calif., Jan. 27, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The holidays have ended, but, unfortunately, the stress for many parents has just begun. When kids head back to school, the chances of getting lice are high—with 6 to 12 million infestations each year in U.S. children between 3 and 11 years old, according to a recent CDC report. With the rapid rise of head lice and common misconceptions that come with them, The Hair Angels have opened their second location on January 24, 2016 to treat families for head lice and keep the problem in check.
Most parents come to The Hair Angels after battling lice with over-the-counter solutions that include combs and shampoos. The problem is that the latest strain of lice is more resilient, and not all are killed with these well-known tactics. In addition, most lice treatment contains chemicals that can potentially cause more harm than good.
"Lice are a problem that everyone can get. It doesn't mean that you're not clean or have bad hygiene," explains Michelle Aloisio, owner of The Hair Angels. "Unfortunately most people don't know how to treat it properly." After her own children repeatedly suffered from lice, Michelle got frustrated by the lack of accurate information and chemical-free options available. Eventually she decided to do it on her own using the Shepherd Method to thoroughly comb through hair, removing all signs of lice and their eggs (nits). The treatment not only worked perfectly, it allowed Michelle to help other families get through their own lice problems.
The Hair Angel's new Santa Monica location is equipped with the same child-friendly atmosphere and colorful décor to keep kids occupied. Michelle even provides her young clients with entertainment to help them settle in for treatment. The Hair Angels guarantees 100% removal for all patients who follow simple instructions for combing and come in for a second checkup 5-7 days after their initial treatment. The Hair Angels first salon is located in Pasadena, CA. For parents who'd prefer in-home treatment, The Hair Angels offers services in Los Angeles, Orange County, San Diego, Sacramento, San Francisco, and Phoenix.
