The word of the week in your house was “brave.” Until the preschool nurse called to tell you Supergirl had lice. Then it was “panic.”
Lice Aunties to save the day. The company was started by a Boston mom who’d had it with the buggers, and the aunties are all specially trained to swoop in and pick out the little critters (and their eggs) one by one. Using only lice combs, conditioner, and their hands, they rely on patience and precision to get rid of the insects once and for all.
And though the service doesn’t come cheap ($100 an hour), the work is guaranteed.
You have their word.
