Lice Happens Stole Our Hearts

Nancy and M. J. recently took care of our head lice problem, and I had a way overdue education on a subject in which I was ignorant. Parents, please use a professional when confronted with this situation! Drug-store products are just not effective in getting permanent relief. …Read More

Over the years, when my kid’s school sent that letter home alerting parents to an outbreak, I’d check my kids and feel good that they didn’t have it. But I would think “I’m so glad it’s not my child,” and “how gross and dirty the parents must be!” And I’d move on with my everyday busy life. That changed in one day, and the feeling can be overwhelming. Shame, huge guilt, embarrassment, horror and those are just the initial feelings.

Lice Happens immediately calmed me down, stole our hearts, and took care of the problem, as well as giving me a free education in this nasty horrible pest who doesn’t like any animals, just humans. I will never go through this again thanks to their thoroughness and expertise. I feel such a huge sense of gratitude for their help in saving our summer and the remaining elementary school years.

PS: You both really did steal our hearts and took such sweet care of my daughter!

Thank You,Thank You,Thank You. And Kudos

Thank you for sending the wonderful Ally to our home last night to rid my two kids of lice!
Calling Lice Happens was absolutely the best thing I did in the last week. Making an appointment was easy and was done at MY convenience – which was such a breath of fresh air for this working mom.
…Read More

At the appointed time, the delightful Ally arrived at our front door. She was so calm and fun that my kids ENJOYED the delousing. My daughter said – no fewer than 5 times after Ally left – that she wished Ally was still at our house and that Ally had been the only good thing about Lice. My son agreed whole heartedly. Ally was simultaneously friendly, fun, competent, businesslike and – most importantly – effective. We are lice free and free of lice-related angst!

Thank you for all that you do for frazzled families doing battle with lice. It is greatly appreciated. Can’t thank you and the delightful Ally enough. I’ve already told other parents that, if their kids get lice, they should pick up the phone and call you. Wishing you much success with your expanding business. I have no doubt that it will continue to be very successful.

From Overwhelmed to Overjoyed

I just wanted to say thank you so much for your help with my family. I was overwhelmed when I discovered my three daughters ages 4-6 had lice. I called MJ late in the evening who talked me through an acceptable plan of action. The next day she sent Mary who was a true angel to our rescue. Mary was professional, kind, knowledgeable, and so good with my daughters. She screened our family, including the grandmothers who watch my daughters often. …Read More

She spent time debunking the myths and truly educating us on the life cycle of lice and how we can watch, screen and prevent them from coming back. Mary also spent time teaching me how to go through and treat my daughters for lice. By the time Mary had left:
• I felt confident that we were all lice and nit free
• I was educated properly to ensure that lice would not come back
• I felt overjoyed that I was back in control of the situation
The money spent for your service was less than I would have spent on all the prescription shampoos that would have been worthless with out the education on how to screen and treat properly. Thank you Mary and Lice Happens for peace of mind.

Sanity Restored

When I realized that we were infected with Lice, I panicked. We had never had an experience with Lice and I was terrified. My friend told me that I should call Lice Happens immediately and have them come over and comb out our hair. Cara was able to come first thing the next morning and comb out our hair and the kids were back in school that morning. …Read More

Furthermore, MJ and Nancy were always available with any questions that I had even after treatment (and I had A LOT). Lice Happens educated me on Lice and their habits, prevention of Lice, and what to do if we get Lice. I was grateful for their professionalism and their help getting me back to sanity (because as my friends and family put it – I completely lost my mind while dealing with this “issue”). Thanks so much Lice Happens.
Many Thanks,

Best Money We’ve Ever Spent

I just wanted to thank you for helping us out of our lice mess last week! While Samantha’s friend, who used an over-the-counter-treatment, is still battling many nits, Samantha looks clean… There was a lot more drama when you weren’t around! …Read More

Even my husband, who hates to spend a penny on anything he can possibly do himself, agrees that this is the best money we’ve ever spent! I’ve been telling everyone who asks about you and hope you have much success in your new business. M.J., it was fun hanging with you while you went through Sam’s hair!

Thanks again!!


Regained Control

Good afternoon. I just wanted to take a moment to say thank you, thank you, thank you for services rendered almost five months ago. (I’m a bit of a procrastinator.) I called on you first for advice, and then to have someone come out to make sure all critters had moved on to a better place. …Read More

Teresa came to my home in Southern Maryland, and she was not only a breath of fresh air, but a stabilizing force to my insanity. From the time I first realized that my daughter had head lice, until the visit from Teresa, I was a basket case. After she left, I felt as if I had regained control of the situation. My usually timid daughter, who isn’t a fan of strangers, loved Teresa immediately, and even said that she would like to see her again, only not with head lice.

I just ordered another bottle of the lice repellant spray for our use, and a bottle for a friend. Although I feel that I have a handle on my critter phobia, I’d rather be safe than sorry. Or lousy.
Again, thank you so much!


Completely Different Experience

I wanted to let you know how pleased we were with the services rendered this morning by Lisa. She was incredibly professional, efficient, and informative. She put my whole family at ease (husband and kids ranging in ages 3-16yrs). I would highly recommend your service to anyone else that I hear from. Lisa exceeded our expectations! …Read More

We’ve had another lice experience when we lived in North Carolina and we hired a “nit-picker”, and it was a completely different experience. This time, my husband and I felt significantly more confident and comfortable with the process, product, and overall protocol used by Lisa.

Saved From a Nervous Breakdown

When I noticed my daughter had lice for the first time, I felt very overwhelmed. Not knowing what needed cleaning, or how to comb properly, I immediately treated with over-the-counter products. However, my son having autism and being very chemically sensitive, made me look further into this treatment as I did not want to use toxins. I Googled for services and found LICE HAPPENS. …Read More

Their website is extremely informative and the owners could not be more educated, dedicated and honest individuals. The feeling of relief we had when MJ left our home and said we were “clear” was truly priceless. They answered follow-up questions promptly, and as my husband says “saved me from a nervous breakdown.” My daughter called her “Aunt MJ,” and she is not only on our Christmas card list, but holds a special place in our hearts for helping us through a challenging time.

A Relieved Maryland Mom

Our Experience Was Fantastic

We dodged lice over a dozen times in the past 3 years. I was beginning to think we were immune to the pesky critters. But low and behold on a Friday evening after a shower and a routine hair brushing I noticed bugs and eggs in my daughter’s hair. My 1st reaction was to freak, bomb the house, wash everything and buy stock in the OTC treatment. I immediately treated our hair and started what I thought was a good nit picking process. …Read More

I was told about your company by a good friend who had used you in the past. The next morning I checked my daughter’s head and was still finding eggs… UGH!! I knew I needed my head checked, but by who? I called right away and talked to MJ who scheduled an appointment for us within 2 hours. Theresa showed up very energetic to help us out and bonded with my daughter right away. She made us both feel at ease through the entire process and told us she was not leaving until I was confident on how to screen my daughter in the future.

I was totally 100% satisfied with the service and will be referring you all to everyone I know!! I learned so much about lice and how to stop it where it starts!! The products were a life saver and we’ll be keeping the peppermint spray on hand at all times. Thank you so much for coming out and educating our family!!

Lice Free and Able to Go Back to School Today!

Just wanted you to know how much I appreciate you getting someone out so quickly and how wonderful Theresa was. I quickly realized that I could not get all 4 kids done by myself so I kept her a little longer than planned, but it was worth every penny to have them (and me), lice free and able to go back to school today. …Read More

I really appreciate that you were both conscience of the price issue and willing to be flexible on the time/money spent. I will definitely recommend you folks to others, and I am pretty sure there are others at my children’s school!

Thank you.

Never Been So Relieved in My Life

Hello MJ, Nancy, and Cara, I just want to say how wonderful you have been to me. Cara was great when she came to the house on Sunday. My daughter has obnoxiously thick and lush hair and Cara didn’t even hesitate. She set up calmly and went right to work. I have never been so relieved in my life. …Read More

Which meant I promptly burst into tears….again. Because she was calm, I was calm. She educated me and my husband and taught us the right way to use the comb and foam. I had my first good nights sleep on Sunday night. It has also been a huge relief to have you all at the other end of the telephone line when I need help and support. But after reading some of your testimonials, I realize that I am not alone. It is amazing ( and not just a little embarrassing ) to me that a small bug can change me from a sane, rational, and calm person into a frothing, hysterical, weeping harpie.

A Minute to Say Thanks

I just wanted to take a minute to say hello and let you know how we are doing. I have to tell you that the money we spent with you will always be considered the best money I have ever spent. I cannot say enough how great you guys are and how much I learned. We have stopped possible infestations probably 7 or 8 times now. When Meredith goes to a sleepover I comb her when she comes home and twice I found one live bug and that was it, it was done. …Read More

It has started going around school again this year and I do the quick comb about twice a week and found a live one once and again, that was it, it was done. I may be a little neurotic with it but the way i look at it, if I am crazy 2 or 3 times a week for a few minutes and I can prevent that awful stuff from happening, i am okay with it. We just do it as part of the shower routine now and it’s so easy. I am just so grateful. I will talk about it and you guys with anyone who will listen to me. So I just wanted to take a minute to say thank you and we hope you guys have a wonderful Holiday season!

Help on Our Hour of Need

Thank you so much for your service to our family. I was totally freaked out. I called and spoke to Nancy who called Mary who came to our house, got the bugs and nit out of the kid’s hair and told me what to do from then on. It is SUCH sweet relief to get help and good advice right in the hour of need. …Read More

Mary did an amazing job with our hair and educating us with the facts about lice and how to prevent it, debunking lots of misinformation and patiently answering my questions, many of which amounted to the same question asked in many different ways! We are following the protocol and after the initial two weeks we will use the nit comb to screen everyone’s hair once a week and after suspected exposure so we’ll never have to deal with infestation again. I will absolutely tell everyone about your wonderful service should lice happen to them.

With huge thanks and best wishes for Happy Holidays,

Emily Gleichenhaus

Supremely Professional

Heather just left and I want you to know it was wonderful to have her here to help me. She was supremely professional and pleasant and educated me thoroughly – which also calmed me down. Thank you for acting so quickly to get me help. I will recommend your service and Heather to everyone I know. Happy Holidays!


Head Lice Treatment Fun?…Yes!

Heather was absolutely fabulous! Thank you and thanks to Heather for coming to our house so early in the morning! I know having lice removed from your hair shouldn’t be fun, but Heather had us all laughing and made the appointment a lot easier to go through. Thanks again for getting our kids back to sleep-away camp!

Learned a Lot About Lice

We just wanted to thank and praise Mary for her wonderful service and education that she provided for my 3 children and myself! She was patient and kind and we learned A LOT!! We thank you, Mary, and would recommend you and the service to anyone!

A Valuable Lesson

We spent 2 1/2 weeks of countless hours, tears and dollars trying to get rid of our lice problem only to find that it wasn’t gone yet. I read website after website and tried everything from harsh chemicals to olive oil and vinegar, 3 different combs, and picking up a storm. …Read More

I was so disheartened when I realized I hadn’t gotten them all. MJ came out and had us cleaned up in no time! It was the best money we ever spent. Not only do I have peace of mind now, but I know how to handle the problem if it comes up again. It was a valuable lesson that I would recommend to anyone dealing with lice. If only we had just called them on day one!!

It was worth every penny and Mary was amazing with the kids and had so much knowledge. I told her that I would recommend you guys to anyone that ever told me they are battling lice.

Turning the Unpleasant into Enjoyable

Hello M.J. Thank you so much for all of your help last week. Theresa was wonderful!!! The kids still talk about how nice she was. She really made an unpleasant experience much more enjoyable. Please tell Theresa thank you again.

To the Rescue

About a month ago my daughter came home with an itchy head and we found lice. We went and bought the over-the-counter lice shampoo and were doing everything we were supposed to do. Two weeks later, I get a call from the school nurse and she had the little critters back again! I was so overwhelmed and at this point I was sure my youngest daughter and I had it also. I decided enough was enough and contacted Lice Happens.
…Read More

From the moment I was on the phone with them they were very helpful. Heather was out to my house in 2 hours. As soon as she walked in the door I felt very comfortable with her. She was so professional and educated on lice and made the whole situation better. I really don’t know what I would have done had she not come to our rescue because I was about to have a nervous breakdown! Heather was so patient with my kids and me. I cant believe I’m saying this but I was actually bragging to people about having lice just to tell them about this wonderful company and about Heather!!

The Education Was Priceless

I wanted to take a minute to tell you all how thankful my family and I are that we contacted you!!!! As many of your clients, we have been battling lice issues on and off for sometime now. Just when we think we had it under control, it was back. I hated it for my daughter! Not only did I not like putting her through the process over and over again but I hated knowing she had bugs in her hair and I was unable to control the problem. …Read More

It wasn’t until this recent outbreak that I learned that there were removal services out there and thank God I did!!! Mary was our consultant and she was AMAZING!!!!! She was so prepared and so professional! I loved that she brought her own dvd’s and dvd player for my kids to watch while she did her thing. She was patient and not only put to ease my concerns but did the same for my kids. The education that she provided my family was priceless! There were so many things that I thought I knew but when it came down to it, I was wrong. I called my daughter’s school yesterday to inform them that she had nits and I was keeping her out to treat the problem.

Today I took her in and for the first time EVER was super confident while the nurse checked her head. Before when I would do the usual treatments, I was biting my nails praying the nurse didn’t find that one nit that I missed. Sure enough, she passed with flying colors. Before I left, I handed over a Lice Happens flyers and assured the nurse that if there is anyone with this issue to please give them your contact so they can get the same amazing help that I did. I found out that 2 other students in my daughters class also have lice and normally I would cringe but with the clean slate and knowledge that Lice Happens gave me I know that I can now handle it.
Thanks so much.

So Grateful for Lice Happens

I want to thank Theresa and the entire Lice Happens team for your help. My daughter has the thickest, curliest, most knot-prone, most unruly hair known to man. So when she contracted lice for the second time (yikes!) I wanted to just shave her head. I felt it would be better for everyone, except of course, her. …Read More

I didn’t think I could get the comb through one more part of her hair, so I found Lice Happens online. After reading through the extremely informative website and reading the testimonials, I thought that if anyone could get us lice-free, it’s Lice Happens.

When Theresa came out, she got right to work and didn’t even flinch at my daughter’s rat’s nest of curls. She patiently and methodically went through every inch of hair on my daughter’s head and even fit me in to double check my head. She was so nice the entire time, with words of encouragement, or just general stories about her to make the time pass.

I am so grateful to Lice Happens. I feel confident; I no longer have an irrational fear of lice and realize that, with just some patience and time, it does go away and it does get better. So thank you to the founders of Lice Happens, for creating such a great company and thank you to Theresa, for being just fantastic.

A Million Thanks

We are forever in your debt! After Nancy came out just before Halloween, we have not had one single louse in our house. Even my middle child who had the entire colony and lice metropolis in her hair was COMPLETELY free after Nancy’s visit. …Read More

There are no good words for the depths of our gratitude, but still, a million thanks to Nancy, and all of you who do this amazing work.

A very happy New Year to you all!

I Adore You People

Dear Lice Happens,
It’s 6:30 in the morning. I’m at work and I had a restful night’s sleep thanks to Ashley. We had taken my daughter to a pediatrician last week for an itchy scalp. The pediatrician looked at her scalp, put her under a black light and told us it was probably eczema and that we should use Selsun Blue. When my 7 year old daughter’s school nurse called yesterday morning and said that my daughter was sent to the nurse because a louse had dropped out of her hair and started crawling across her notebook, we were at first both shocked and concerned. …Read More

Then the concern turned to fear and humiliation. We rushed to school, picked her up and washed her hair with an over the counter treatment. When we rinsed the treatment from her hair and saw the lice swimming in the tub, the fear and humiliation turned to disgust and despair. Then I remembered an article a while back in the Washington Post Magazine and decided to give you a call.
Within a little more than an hour after my phone call, Ashley arrived and took control of the situation. She educated us. She calmed us. And best of all, she took care of the lice in my daughter’s scalp. Ashley was friendly, clean, neat, meticulous, compassionate, and thorough. She put me, my wife, and most importantly, my daughter at ease. She plopped my daughter in front of her favorite tv show (Scooby Doo, “Ruh roh, Raggy. Rice!) to distract her and got to work.
When Ashley left we were educated. We were all screened for lice. We knew how to follow up. We knew what to look for. We knew what not to look for. We knew what to do and what not to do. Our three cats were safe from being shorn like sheep. We didn’t have to throw away all my daughter’s favorite stuffed animals. We all had peace of mind within hours of discovering the lice. You saved us from weeks of stress, distress, and uncertainty. You saved my daughter from continued discomfort.
Best money I’ve ever spent. Hands down. Every parent should have your website bookmarked and your phone number on speed dial.
Lice happens. Lice happened to us. And Lice Happens took care of it. Quickly. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

The Terrific Job That You Do

I just wanted to take a moment to thank you all for the terrific job that you do. When I first found your company, it was two in the morning on a Saturday, and I had just spent over 2 1/2 hours unsuccessfully trying to comb lice out of my seven year old daughter’s hair, and had just treated my head to a pesticide bath after realizing it had spread to me. I was slowly working into a state of panic and was worrying about how I was ever going to beat these bugs. …Read More

I called Lice Happens on the hotline at around 2am; heard back from MJ very quickly; and Janice was at our door at 5:30p that day. I was, and am, amazed and utterly grateful that I was able to have someone come out the very same day to save us from the nightmare.

Janice was wonderful–patient and thorough, she got to work right away. She ‘cleaned out’ my four year old–whom we had realized only a couple hours earlier also had gotten lice–she fixed up our daughter, and me. And very importantly, she taught us how to monitor our kids’ hair and deal with the problem, so we would be able to avoid it ever happening again. And she did it all with a professional, friendly and easy-going attitude which took away a lot of our stress and made the whole situation seem much less daunting.

Thank you so much for providing such a terrific service for such an unpleasant situation. When this first happened, I had visions of our family spending months fighting a losing battle against the lice. Lice Happens and Janice took away our potential nightmare and gave us the knowledge, skills and tools we need to fight the bugs in the future. As parents, we don’t spend a whole lot of time chatting with other parents about lice, but you can bet that whenever we hear of a lice outbreak we will be singing the praises of Lice Happens (and combing our kids’ heads quick, to make sure they don’t get it again!!)

Could Not Have Been Happier With Your Company

I just wanted to say how much we loved Gretchen and she was absolutely wonderful! We could not have been happier with your company and the assistance in helping with our lice issue. …Read More

At no point did I think we would ever be in this situation. We have dodged it for 10 years between daycare, preschool, and elementary school. The information and teaching you all do is really a huge asset to a family. Please pass on to Gretchen how much we appreciated her help and she was absolutely wonderful with the girls and me.

Thanks again.

Jennifer P.


Just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to to Lice Happens for saving my sanity. Right from the initial call, my mind was eased. We have been battling this problem for what feels like an eternity and in a sleepless fit of anxiety, I found your website and called. Even though it was 11:30 pm, I was greeted by an exceedingly helpful soul named Nancy. Thanks for being there to take my call at that late hour!!! …Read More

Gretchen arrived the next day and spent time combing, educating, laughing and chit-chatting with us until she felt like family. She was able to teach me a TON of information about these pesky little buggers!!! You should know that this is really a huge compliment as I am a physician. What I was taught in medical school was a drop in the bucket compared to the wealth of knowledge Gretchen brought to the table!!!

You all are FANTASTIC and EMPOWERING! I feel like we are finally back in control again and this feeling is PRICELESS!!!! Thank you for all you do and for a job WELL DONE!!!!

To Our Rescue

We can’t thank you enough for sending Lisa to our rescue! Not only was she fabulous in ridding us of the problem, but she had a wonderful personality and taught us so much during the process. …Read More

“We wasted hundreds of dollars on potentially toxic solutions first, but now have the peace of mind knowing that we are doing a safe, thorough job of eliminating lice”. I will be passing along your information to both our children’s schools and camp because there’s a need to improve screening at both.

No Tears at All

Thank you again for your services. We were delighted with the results. Our daughter was able to return to school the next morning. Cara was so professional and answered all our questions. Her calm demeanor made the treatment go smoothly. …Read More

There were no tears at all. Our school nurse, who thoroughly checked our daughters head with a large lighted magnifying glass, was impressed to find no nits or lice. She asked for your information, which we gladly provided. I believe she will be passing along your company’s info as will I.

With Sincere Thanks,
