In February, 2015 the Weiss family returned from a family trip to Guatemala to find that four of them had head lice. Marlene sent Scott to CVS to buy RID. Marlene spent several hours trying to comb the kids out by herself using the over-the-counter product only to find the all had lice. Scott tried to comb Marlene’s hair but soon realized that dad’s are not that great when it comes to head lice. The kids kept screaming and crying through the whole time and missed several days of school. Scott and Marlene both missed several days of work. Even though she had an outstanding medical background, Marlene could not solve the problem herself and it was impossible to comb out her own hair.
We opened up in 2015 as Lice Clinics of America Los Alamitos and our second clinic opened up that same year as Lice Clinics of America South Bay. In August of 2019 we parted ways with the Lice Clinics of America franchise and became Los Alamitos Lice Removal and Torrance Lice Removal. In March, 2020 we made the difficult decision to downsize and close our Los Alamitos clinic due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This allowed us to focus all of our time and efforts on operating one clinic.
We have successfully head screened or treated families representing over 875 different schools and 67 different cities throughout Southern California. We view ourselves as an Emergency Room for head lice. Our mission is to turn what can be a very stressful event into a pleasant family experience that is actually enjoyable and the standard of care for head lice treatment. We support the communities we serve through lice education, lice head screening, lice treatment, community involvement, and donations of our services back to the community.
We exist to make a difference in the world. We allow children, parents, and families in our community to have their lice infestation solved right away and to sleep well at night. We provide a clinically proven, evidence based service that is chemical free, stress free, and that can end your lice infestation in about 1 hour so you can get back to your lives.
