Lice, Lice, Baby!

Aloha! My name is Barrie and I am a small business owner in Hawaii, where lice, or "ukus," are a huge problem.  Three years ago, when my daughter got super lice, I realized we had no local resources to combat it and really struggled.  As a result of that experience, I quit my job and put everything I had into opening a lice clinic.  We specialize in one-and-done treatments, using an FDA-approved device to kill nits, followed by a non-toxic, pesticide-free product to kill live bugs.  Treatments take about an hour and the individual is lice-free that day, instead of struggling for weeks or months.  We are now a major resource on a small island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean for parents, schools, day cares, hair salons and the community.  There are still members of our community, however, that are under-served because they cannot afford treatment.  Over the past two years, we have offered our time, products and treatments for free or at major discounts to families who are struggling, but we are a small business that is just getting started and would like to be able to help so much more.  If you are interested in partnering with us, we will donate our time, and your money will cover the cost of service for families struggling to get rid of lice on their own.  Your random act of kindness will provide freedom for a child suffering with the discomfort and stigma of head lice, who would not otherwise receive the help they deserve.  $189 makes one child lice-free. For every $139 donated to cover cost, we will donate $50 of our time.  We will post pictures for each person helped. Ensuring that everyone has access to treatment is an investment in the community that helps prevent re-infestation, which makes your contribution go far beyond the person in our chair.  Please check out our website to learn more about our treatments  You can also find us on Facebook and Instagram @liceclinicshawaii.
