Head Lice Treatment & Nit Removal
featuring California's most affordable lice treatment plan
Pricing & Warranty Information


Why don't the other lice companies list their prices?

It's usually because they are very expensive.  Believe it or not,  some local lice salons charge $400/ per person and require 4 separate visits. Most of the time lice removal companies charge about $90/ per hour but beware of "long appointments".  
If a company tells you that your mild case of lice will take 2+ hours to remove, you should definately get a second opinion.

On Average, How long does the first appointment take?

Short hair

Infestation level
Mild .....................30 minutes 
Moderate ............. 40 minutes
Severe ................ 50 minutes


How long does the second appointment usually take?

It usually takes about 1/2 the time of the first appointment.  

Do I really need a second appointment?
Yes.  You need some sort of follow-up treatment 3-6 days after the first treatment.  When lice hatch from the egg they are so small that a lice comb could miss them.  Often times everything is removed during the first treatment but you can't be 100% sure until your re-combed 3-6 days later to see if any of the newly hatched eggs survived though treatment.  

Is there any guarantee that your service is going to work?

Yes.  If any live lice are found in the hair within 2 weeks of completing your second treatment, we will return to complete treatment free of service charge.  
Long hair

Infestation Level
Mild ......................... 45 minutes

Our Warranty 

Nit Control guarantees the complete removal of all live lice and viable nits after the completing of our head lice removal program.  The warranty is valid for 2 weeks after your treatment program.  The treatment program consists of 2 separate removal sessions within a 3-7 day period.  If any lice or viable eggs are seen within 2 weeks of treatment our technician will return to your home and complete the treatment free of charge.  

Please note: Occasionally dandruff is confused for head lice infestation.  Remember, nits are usually brown and and have a "bulb-like" shape. Nits are also very firmly attached to your hair.  Dandruff  will move if touched and a nit will require you to use your fingernails to pull off and will slide down the entire length of the hair before coming off at the end.  If a technician is called back to your house because of misidentified dandruff or debris, you will be charged the hourly service rate.   

Viable Lice Egg "nit"
brown in color
Hatched Egg "nit casting"
dead, non-viable
clear or off-white in color
Nit Control guarantee the removal of all viable lice eggs. Typically all "nit casting" are removed but this is not guaranteed unless previously discussed. A nit casting is an empty non-vialble lice egg. In order to guarantee the removal of every nit casting the hair needs to be dried and searched strand-by-strand which can cost up to hour of additional service time per person. This process is purely cosmetic.

As seen in the picture, nit castings are flat and deflated which can pass though even the highest quality nit combs.  

Usually 99+% of nit casting are removed during treatment
