Head lice: The never-ending nightmare

Head lice: The never-ending nightmare

It is an absolute nightmare for parents and one many are familiar with – head lice.

If you have to deal with the problem regularly, you will be very pleased to hear about 'Nitsy Pixie'.

Lisa Daniel has a Wellington salon where children with head lice are welcome.

For four years, Ms Daniel has been dealing to the little critters and their eggs. The salon boasts a 100 percent success rate.

She has created her own product using essential oils competing with a raft of commercial head lice remedies.

A recent US study suggests head lice are becoming more resistant to chemical components but Ms Daniel says it is kind of irrelevant. She believes it is not so much about the product as it is about the process.

Story went to investigate this nit whisperer's method and how she helps parents with the never-ending nightmare.
