The words “your child has lice” may make a parent gasp but for someone like Kathy Zappulla of Smithtown, it can also propel you towards a very busy business of nitpicking. “Seven years ago I got the dreaded phone call that no parent wants. My daughter had lice and it spiraled my family into a state of panic,” Zappulla remembers. But eventually when the panic subsided, Zappulla saw an opportunity to help others and became one of Long Island’s leading experts on the insects and created the brand DeLiceful.
“I understand the fears and frustrations associated with a lice infestation, I’ve lived it and DeLiceful is here to provide families with a safe, effective method to completely eliminate lice, guaranteed,” says Zappulla who is proudly opening her third location in Bellmore this week (the other two salons are in Great Neck and Hauppauge). “We are happy to be able to provide our clients with their choice of 3 convenient locations servicing the South Shore and North Shore of Long Island in Nassau County, and then our Suffolk County location.”
DeLiceful’s method incorporates the use of special enzyme based lice shampoo that is organic, all natural and pesticide free. DeLiceful never subjects their clients to the harmful toxic chemicals that can be found in over the counter lice treatments. After the pesticide-free lice shampoo, DeLiceful thoroughly eliminates head lice strand-by-strand, then check, and re-check every hair on the child’s head one strand at a time. DeLiceful’s Long Island lice treatment salons are comfortable, offering many amenities, such as movies, iPads and snacks to keep families occupied and happy throughout the process.
“Lice happens but panic doesn’t need to follow. My salons are here to make a scary situation DeLiceful,” says Zappulla.
