About Us

As a parent with chronic asthma, I always struggled when it came to head lice treatments. The chemical based products caused severe breathing problems for me and they required multiple applications.


I decided to do some research and found that head lice had become immune to most over the counter treatments and that's why so many chemicals were used in these products. I found Fairy Tale head lice treatments and came up with a solution that could save all parents the hassle of at home head lice removal. Fairy Tale's oil based products are 100% chemical and pesticide free, killing and removing all head lice and eggs without the awful smell. I underwent extensive training in California to properly and effectively provide this treatment. This training is not available anywhere else in the world.

At The Nit Cracker we provide a once of treatment. By the time your child leaves our clinic, they will be completely head lice free, and able to return to school and activities as normal.

In addition to our head lice treatment clinic provides school check-ups. I will visit your school, thoroughly check each child for head lice and advise on my findings. Should any child require treatment, I can schedule an appointment with their parents. We also offer home de-lice packages and free FaceTime calls to advise and hep parents with the removal.

The Clinic

We know that most children dread the head lice treatment process. That is why we have made our clinic a fun and inviting place to be. We have a playroom filled with toys and video games where your child can play or watch a movie while the treatment takes effect. Depending on the length of their hair, the treatment should take no more than two hours. Siblings are also welcome to our playroom while their brother or sister gets treated.


 Every child who undergoes a treatment at The Nit Cracker will leave with a special gift like a toy or a hairband. We don't want to punish children for having hair lice. It is inevitable that children will get hair lice at some stage during their school days, and we believe that children should feel that this is a normal event.

Once the treatment is complete your child is free to return to school. All head lice are completely removed in one application of the products. Children will return for a follow-up check 7-9 days later just to double check that the treatment was a success.

Special Offer : 100 for one full treatment and a check-up

If it’s a bad infestation and requires more than one treatment it’s 60 for further treatment but would only usually be required if the infestation was very severe
