Thank you for informing the whole store!

For the past few years, my family's been having lice problems. (Likely from my having two little brothers who go to a bad school district.) My family has been.. well, less than good at keeping it in check. (they don't know what they're doing. At all.) So it keeps coming back.

I haven't had a hair cut in a few years, because I'm ashamed of how I keep getting it. Now, though, it'd been many, many months of me apparently not having it. So I finally worked up the courage to go get a well needed hair cut, instead of a home chop.

It wasn't more than five minutes in to the chair that the lady found one. While, yes, I understand that lice are disgusting, women tend to be afraid of bugs, and..well, yeah. But she didn't need to rip the cloak and such off of my neck so fast that I felt like I got burned, back away from me in a horrified manner, and then say, loud enough for everyone to hear, that they do not cut hair for people with lice.

Really, I enjoyed all of her coworkers and customers staring at me as if I am some abomination.


Eight years ago, when my mother had lice, her barber had been kind enough to lean down, pull the bug out of her hair, and inform her in a hushed tone what was wrong (showing her the bug). She also didn't leave my mother with a chunk of hair missing from an unfinished cut, and had the kindness to at least even the hair out before asking her to leave.

I don't know. It really hurt. I know how to take care of my hair and to get rid of them, but my family just won't do it right, and I keep getting it back. I really thought I was rid of it, at least for this once. It wouldn't hurt as much if she'd just told me so in a professional manner.

(First post to this community, so I hope I haven't done anything wrong.)
