After a very busy, wonderful first year, Bernadette's at the Beach is changing their name to Picky Pam at the Beach. "We have moved in a different direction, than the Bernadette's franchise" says salon owner Pam Skinner. The salon has received over 50 "5 star" reviews on YELP. "We are sooo proud of our YELP reviews, you have to work very hard for those!" reports Skinner. "We have a brand new lice killing system we call 'Picky Pam Heat & Treat system'. It uses very high volume of warm air. Blow dryers have about 40 cfm (cubic feet per minute).....our Heat & Treat System has 130 cfm...60% higher volume than the AirAlle. It's very comfortable, the temperature is between 138-142, equivalent to the low setting on a blow dryer. High volume of heated air dehydrates lice, and, more importantly nits/eggs. Poisons, like Rid or Nix do not kill nits. Nits/eggs don't have a respiratory or a nervous system (as adult lice do)...so you can't poison them, and you can't suffocate them. There are three ways to kill nits/eggs: freeze them (like putting brushes in a ziplock, in the freezer, overnight), fry them (using high volume of warm (but not hot!) air, or you can use a nit comb and comb them off the scalp, so they can't 'incubate' and they will die. "We are very excited about using our new Picky Pam Heat & Treat System, we feel like we've taken the latest technology for killing lice and nits...and made it even more effective!
