For Ventura Couple, Fighting Head Lice is a Family Affair
For Tate and Amy Singletary, fighting head lice is a family affair. “We learned about Lice Clinics of America from our brother-in-law, who opened a clinic in Portland, Oregon,” Tate said. “After a corporate career in the oil and gas business, I was ready for something new.”
The couple opened Lice Clinics of America in Ventura, California, on February 1st. “We have the only real cure to head lice that uses heated air and only takes about an hour,” Tate said. “People are so happy when they found out that they don’t have to sit through hours of nit picking and don’t have to put any dangerous toxic chemicals and insecticides in their children’s hair.”
The AirAlle® Device
The AirAllé® is an FDA-cleared device** clinically proven to kill live lice and 99.2 percent of eggs using only heated air. When applied by certified technicians, the heated air dehydrates lice and eggs in a matter of minutes.
Making a Difference
“People come in frustrated and leave feeling awesome,” Tate said. “We are already adding a second treatment room in anticipation of serving more people coming from Oxnard, Ojai, Ventura, Montecito, and Santa Barbara.
“A young lady came to us the other day, having found us through an online search,” Tate said. “She was so frustrated because she had been fighting head lice and she knew that meant 10-14 days of combing at home, or sitting for 3-4 hours in a nitpicker’s chair. She had already tried four OTC (over the counter) remedies that did nothing.”
“When she saw that we had a cure that would take just about an hour she was so happy,” he continued. “As she walked out the door, she said ‘I can’t believe I’ve been fighting head lice for weeks and you guys took care of it in an hour. I’m so happy right now, I just can’t believe it.’”
“That was the best feeling,” Tate said. “A young girl came in frustrated, upset, stressed and then left just an hour later happy as a clam because she was lice-free in one treatment!”*
“All we need is about an hour, and our clients will be lice-free and back to their regular lives with no more stress due to fighting head lice,” Tate said. “It’s a great way to help people and it’s a great business to be in.”
