"We really try to make the whole process as pleasant as possible. Our goal is to put families at ease and give them really useful, factual information," explains Vicky.

Lice Guardian provides Dallas and Fort Worth area families a new way to combat head lice. Launched in October 2015, Lice Guardian's trained technicians bring specialized lice treatment directly to infected homes for fast relief of an oft-stigmatized condition. Technicians arrive in an unmarked car to maintain privacy and eliminate the need for distraught parents to explain their needs to a pharmacist in a public space.

Lice Guardian's owner/partner, Sara Portillo, started the business to alleviate the embarrassment felt by many families when children come home from school with lice. Though pediatricians are quick to point out that lice are easily passed from child to child and do not reflect on a home's cleanliness, many families still feel sharp embarrassment when the hear the diagnosis. "We really wanted to take the sting out of the stigma by making in home head lice removal treatment more convenient and private," says Vicky, Lice Guardian's lead technician.

When a family telephones or fills out a secure online form to contact Lice Guardian, the company sends a trained technician in a plain car to avoid unnecessary attention. Once in the home, technicians remove lice from the patients' hair while offering advice to parents and families about other lice abatement procedures, including proper disinfecting of bedding, clothing and household items like toys and games. 

"We really try to make the whole process as pleasant as possible. Our goal is to put families at ease and give them really useful, factual information," explains Vicky. 

In addition to maintaining privacy, Lice Guardian strives to reduce the incidence of so-called super lice, a breed of head lice that has developed resistance to the most commonly used lice treatments. Though the Center for Disease Control assures the public that super lice carry no disease, the genetic mutations that make them strong enough to survive traditional medical treatments are a cause for concern. 

To avoid contributing to the rise of super lice, Lice Guardian uses products with all-natural, organic oils that are effective at removing lice without increasing their tolerance for chemical treatments. "Our products are safe and proven to be highly effective," states Sara. Lice Guardian offers a 21-day guarantee of their treatment's effectiveness.

With school in session, Lice Guardian is ready to treat families in the greater Dallas and Fort Worth area in the comfort of their own homes. According to Sara, "This is a new model of service, and we can't wait to help local families get rid of lice once and for all."
