“How long does it take to check for head lice per child?”
A professional head lice and nit check at a Hairforce salon takes 30 minutes. The forensic check involves the hair being hoovered with a specialist lice hoover to see if there are any head lice present. If there are then that appointment can usually be converted into a clear.
If no head lice are found, the head is then checked systematically to identify if there are any eggs or nits present. Again if eggs are found then then the appointment can usually be converted into a clear.
Many Mum’s in particular are unsure if they have caught head lice from their children and a check can conclusively establish if they have or not.
