Lisa Daniels - Founder
Lisa grew up in Lower Hutt, New Zealand, and now lives in Eastbourne on the eastern coastline of Wellington harbour.
Hair lice have been an intermittent challenge for her young customers as long as Lisa has been a hairdresser.
Her two children Noah and Mila-Rose have both struggled with head lice at some stage, so Lisa knows nits very well indeed.
Method to the Madness
As a hairdresser for over 25 years, raising young children, and now running Nitsy Pixies, I've heard 'every nit story' and I've tried every solution. I know what works and what doesn't. Believe me, I've seen it all.
The biggest and most common challenge is 'breaking the life cycle.' If one egg is left after treatment, it will hatch, start laying eggs, and you won't know for possibly a month until your child's hair is infested again.
As a mum, I didn't like pouring chemicals onto my child's head. I learned that childrens' scalps absorb chemicals into their system faster and in greater quantities than adults! How scary is that?! So I decided I was really good at the 'process' of getting lice and eggs out, but I needed the right natural product to do so.
I talked with my Aromatherapist cousin, April Harwood Smith, about possible combinations to use with oils. We came up with the best smelling nit repelling recipe ever! Thank you, April!
I now sell this wonderful product here and I offer in-salon treatments. You can hear from very happy clients here and please share your story with Nitsy Pixies.
