The Origin Of DeLiceful
As a busy working mother of two, Kathy Zappulla remembers the panic she felt when she received the dreaded phone call from her child’s school nurse. Head lice had taken up housekeeping in her daughter’s hair.”
Like many unsuspecting families she quickly realized that, regardless of hygiene or age, a case of head lice could happen to anyone; and like most parents she instantly became a student of head lice 101. “I read everything I could get my hands on and asked lots of questions” Ms. Zappulla explained. “I learned that while they are no bigger than a sesame seed they can quickly spread from head to head. I was most frustrated to learn that the problem was perpetuated by the fact that lice-killing medicines are becoming less effective and more harmful to our children’s health.”
Ms. Zappulla’s inquisitive nature paid off, scoring big time when she located a professional service to help eliminate her children’s head lice problem; A service she now shares with parents in her area. “Although it was a bit of a drive to get professional help, it was well worth it. But I also realized that not everyone could do that. I thought about how grateful I was to receive help and I knew I needed to find a way to help others too.”
Ms. Zappulla spent the next couple of months putting her plans into motion. She traveled to South Florida where she participated in an intensive hands-on training program. Now trained and certified in the Shepherd Method™ of strand by strand nit removal, Ms. Zappulla started her “DeLiceful” lice removal service in Hauppauge, NY.
Raising community awareness about lice and how resistant they are to over-the-counter products is the goal of DeLiceful as they strive to help parents in their community. “Too much time and emphasis is spent cleaning the house and there is still a lot of negative stigma and myths associated with lice. Our goal is to erase them, and replace them with hard facts” Ms. Zappulla stated. “Our mission is to make the community, schools and camps aware of updated lice information as well as offering hands on help for those who need it.”
What Parents Are Saying About DeLiceful
I heard Kathy of DeLiceful speak at a PTA meeting and she really knew her facts about lice. So when my son came home from camp with head lice, I knew who to call immediately. Kathy and her staff got us an appointment right away. I loved her salon. I loved her staff. Thanks so much.

After unsuccessfully attempting to treat my 2 daughters’ hair own my own, I found DeLiceful online and decided to take the two-hour drive from Pennsylvania. No other places in my area offered the thorough services that DeLiceful provided. The patience and expertise at DeLiceful was definitely worth the drive. Now I have peace of mind!! Thanks, DeLiceful.

My daughter has had lice 3 times. The first time she got it I was a complete basket case and spent a desperate summer doing all the wrong things to get rid of the lice. We almost ended up shaving our kindergartener's head before the first day of school because we were at our wits end. The 2nd time, our entire family got it - but this time, I found DeLiceful, and what a difference! If my daughter comes home with lice again, I’m going straight to DeLiceful.
