Hairdresser horrified by girl’s six month lice infestation

A hairdresser who was horrified by a child’s horrific head lice infestation says her thick hair was housing a surprising amount of eggs after her family struggled to treat the problem at home.

Rachel Maroun, 21, shared a video of the child’s infestation on TikTok, revealing it had been building for six months and took nine hours to remove.

Rachel works as a head lice technician and shares clips of her most severe cases online.

One recent case was that of a 12-year-old girl whose family were struggling to treat the lice at home as her disabilities meant she could not handle the combing process.

The child was getting “overstimulated” so her parents decided to make the long journey to visit Rachel and get professional treatment.

When she came in, the hairdresser was stunned by the huge infestation, with lice crawling all over her scalp, neck and clothes.

“I was extremely surprised to see the amount of eggs her thick hair was housing,” Rachel said.

“Typically this case would have been better solved in shaving the hair, but for a 12-year-old who basically was a brunette Rapunzel I did not want to take that away from her.

“I spent about three hours over each appointment combing through her hair. Some spots I could n’t even go near on the first treatment – ​​above her de ella ear was filled with eggs and it had caused to hair to be locked up in a sticky situation.

“We took our time and just went with what she was comfortable with – and we did it.”
