Once upon a time there were two women raising six children and sharing laughs on the front porch. Then one day, one of these women discovered the joys of lice. And it was bad, oh was it ugly, all three of her girls had it, and so did mama. Now the other woman, being the good friend she was, promised to go over and help get rid of all the lice on all those little heads. She said to her, “Oh, no worries, I'll be over later, and I'll bring a Tecate' with me, and we will get rid of those lice together”. Well, she had no intention of going over there and dealing with those nasty little bugs. It should be noted that this woman turned on her friend and thought to herself that she was not going over to a house that was obviously not kept clean and therefor covered in lice.
Now, these women had known each other for years, and the one woman knew, with all good sense, that her lice ridden friend kept her home quite clean, and never ever let her children leave the house without washed clothes, faces, and hair. But something snapped with the word 'lice', all bets were off, and two logical women began to question their friendship and parenting skills. Eventually the woman got rid of the lice all by herself. Not wanting to tell too many people about her struggle with head lice, she had to do it in isolation and embarrassment.
This is the story of Ashli and Summer, and Summer was darn lucky that Ashli forgave her and allowed her the chance to go on an amazing adventure of entrepreneurship. Our story is so similar to that of our clients, and we work everyday to try and get rid of the lice stigma, and assure people that they did nothing wrong to get lice. Head lice make logical and reasonable people loose their minds. We don't know if it's the actual bugs, all the sleepless nights, or the inhalation of lice spray fumes that does it, but whatever it is-we are determined to help.
