If you’ve been battling head lice unsuccessfully, we can help you! Over the counter treatments contain chemicals that are no longer effective at killing lice because the bugs have developed resistance.
Pediatric Hair Solutions uses a non-toxic product that suffocates live bugs. Our heated air professional device then dehydrates the lice eggs. You’ll leave our Greenville lice clinic completely lice free!
We treat children and adults with customized options that fit every budget and our services are recommended by pediatricians, school nurses and camp medical staff.

“I tried the natural home remedy daily for two weeks and my daughter still had lice. After speaking with my hairdresser about the problem, she referred us to Pediatric Hair Solutions. Evie and the ladies at Pediatric Hair Solutions in Greenville, SC not only provided lice removal services for my family, they also took on a counselor role for me. They helped me get through it by listening to my fears and concerns and answering ALL my questions. They taught me so much and went over and above to calm my fears. I highly recommend them and wish I had gone to Pediatric Hair Solutions in Greenville first. The cost of the treatment not only buys the LICE removal but peace of mind which for me was definitely a good investment. “
Greenville County School Lice Policy
If a student in Greenville County Schools is discovered to have head lice:
- The parent is notified.
- The student should be treated for head lice before returning to school.
- Parent will notify school that student has been treated.
- In some instances, students in an entire classroom may be checked for lice, however, this is time consuming and an interruption in the instructional program. Parents are expected to assume responsibility of checking their children’s hair on a regular basis.
- The use of insecticide spray in a school setting for treating the environment is usually not done or advised because of the toxicity and possible allergic reaction of students and/or staff. Thorough vacuuming and cleaning is sufficient at home and school.

How did my child get head lice?
It’s important to know that anybody can get head lice. Lice do not discriminate. If you have hair, you can get head lice. 97 percent of head lice cases are spread through direct head to head contact. Lice do not jump or fly and they do not ‘live’ in the home or school environment. They need to live on the human head in order to survive and will die within 48 hours of being off the head.
The sooner head lice are detected and treated, the better. This prevents the spread of lice in families and friend groups. For the best head lice treatment and screening in Greenville, call the medically trained professionals at Pediatric Hair Solutions in Greenville at 864-918-4527. We serve children and families in Greenville, Simpsonville, Anderson, Easley, Spartanburg, Greer, South Carolina and surrounding communities.
To prevent your child from getting lice in the first place, follow these lice prevention tips:
- Avoid direct head-to-head contact with others. This is the most common way lice is spread.
- Don’t share brushes, combs, scarves, hats, pillows or hoodies.
- Keep hair in tight buns or braids when around others.
- Screen your child for head lice once a week to catch a case early and prevent spreading.
- Be extra vigilant after returning from any school, camp, or holiday break (places where outbreaks tend to occur more often).
- Take your own pillow and sleeping bags to sleepovers.
If you find head lice notify your school, friends, and family immediately to help curtail spread.
