$1,755 : The Cost of DIY Lice Treatment.

Treating Lice, A Pricey Proposition

The Right Place for Lice Treatment - Madcaps SalonConsider that the average person can spend up to 3-6 months treating lice before they resolve the situation. The price of lice treatment can add up.  The long list of costs might include multiple toxic treatments, homemade remedies, cheap combs, doctor visits, prescription treatments, lost work hours, private school hours missed, etc.. Nothing brings a mom and her family to its knees as quickly or as surprisingly as an ineffective treatment for lice. Consider the lost hours and resources in laundry, bedding, brushes, clothes, and hats that many families endure trying to get lice out of their place. The worst losses are the immeasurable ones, but Madcaps Salon is the right place for lice treatment.

Studies have shown that lice have become resistant to most over the counter treatments. Still, most families prefer to try “Do It Yourself” remedies before coming to MadCaps. We encourage parents not to place poisons or pesticides on children’s heads, especially not when we can help with an all-natural, more effective solution. The price of relief with MadCaps can be money far better spent.
