The Top 4 Things To Know when you find out your kids have lice…

It may sound completely over-whelming, but using a chemical shampoo is not a guarantee that your bout with lice is over. Lice have become resistant to these chemicals. Complete Removal is your only guarantee for putting this lice episode behind you. All family members should be checked, as moderate & advanced cases of lice frequently spread to siblings and parents.
