Ellen takes the hysteria out of getting lice. I could never have gotten my daughter to sit still for 2 sessions of thorough lice removal like she did. And she gives you the comb and instructions for following up on it yourself. Thanks Ellen!
When I discovered lice on my children and myself for the 3rd time in a month and a half, I was fast approaching a nervous breakdown. I thought I had done everything right to get rid of them, yet they were back. I had heard about Ellen and knew that I needed help; there’s just not enough hours in the day to do it myself. I called her and she was at my house within an hour. She brought all the supplies we would need and got straight to work. She worked tirelessly and meticulously and possessed the most calming, soothing energy I’ve ever experienced in a person. Where my kids had been whiny, fidgety and impatient for me as I had looked through their hair, they were calm and patient with Ellen. She educated me about lice and what it really takes to eradicate them for good. I’m happy to say that we have been lice free for a month and I continue to comb my kids hair once a week to make sure of that. Ellen seriously preserved my sanity and I will be forever grateful. I have actually shared with many people, as shocking as it is to me, that I have come to be grateful for having had lice because it brought Ellen into my life. Thank you SO much Ellen, a million times over!!!!
I have two girls and when I got the call that they had lice I went into warrior mode trying to arm myself with all the knowledge the internet would divulge unfortunately after four days of “nit picking” for 3 hours a day and many tears…mine not my daughters (they just thought mommy was playing with their hair over and over,,,and after a while it got old and they would run when I had a comb in my hand) I spent more money on chemical shampoos yuck and some natural treatment and still finding nits I knew I needed help. Save yourself the trauma just call Ellen and have her some over and show you how it is done. She is so calm and so amazing with children. She is extremely knowledgeable and really knows her stuff. She gives you the facts and not the pandemonium stories the internet fills you with. Don’t run out to the store and buy anything just call her!!!!! You will safe countless hours and money!
Ellen is awesome! She has the patience of a saint she is very knowledgeable and I would recommend her hands down compared to any other method or product. My anxiety is relieved.

This service is incredible. I could not believe the emotional stress I was carrying over having discovered head lice on my daughter. I wasted a week exhausting myself before I called Ellen at Primitive Grooming. In less than 2 hours, she had cleaned my daughter of all lice and nits and assured me and my son that we were clear as well. I was buoyant! Really, don’t wait, call her immediately if you suspect you have a lice problem.

I cannot recommend Ellen enough; she is wonderful.
5/7/2012 After two unsuccessful attempts (and several mind-numbingly awful hours) of trying to treat my kids on my own, I finally broke down and called Ellen. She showed up at our home within a couple of hours and was like a calming wind, blowing to our rescue. The kids sat still for her without any difficulty and she used natural products to gently and efficiently remove the bugs. She taught me how to keep them bug-free and left behind the super special comb for further combings/checks. She’s been gone for many hours now and my children have yet to stop talking about how much they liked hanging out with her! Amy K.
Having a child in daycare, I always feared that this would happen… and it did. I was on the verge of freak out when I called Primitive Grooming. Jessica came over and was so calm and reassuring and was so great with my son. I was very relieved after she removed those little critters. I was also glad that no harmful chemicals were used in the process of removal. I also loved the fact that she was able to educate me on this situation. I gave my son’s daycare their info so they could go to his school and do some checks to stop this cycle! -Nancy K
I’m actually did not hire Ellen myself but rather sat in on a session she did with a friend of mine. I went in thinking that I had a pretty good idea of what needed to be done to rid my family of lice. Ellen demonstrated a much easier way of doing the comb-throughs and a more sane understanding of what needed to be done regarding removing them from the environment. Above all else, she was calm, centered and sweet. I highly recommend Primitive Grooming! -Erin H.
9-2-2011 Ellen was Great. I have 2 daughters and this was our first time to deal w/head lice. A friend of a friend referred Ellen, and I am so glad I made the call! Ellen was over within the hour and was so calm. My 5 year old and 3 year old followed her example and remained calm as well. She has a way w/kids. Important things that I learned, it is all about the combing and follow-up checks! I didn’t need all the stuff I purchased at the store, which I returned, and purchased combs from Ellen. I learned how much time it takes to comb, and comb and comb — but, at the end, I felt confident all was gone. Just did a 3 day follow-up check and all is still good. Plan to do weekly. Put a movie on for the kids and comb away w/some olive oil. Easy! and all because of Ellen teaching me! -S.K.

Thank you Ellen for not only Nit Picking me and my son, but giving me peace of mind and disspelling all the misinformation out there! It was well worth the hourly rate for what you gave us. You def lived up to your website and the info about your business. I felt tons better and am still getting through the next 14 days of cycles, but am able to face it without fear after your help.

Thank you again for your calm, loving presence in our home. It was such a pleasure to have you here, and your help was truly appreciated. I still think back to when you came upstairs to help my daughter get to sleep, and how lovingly you spoke with her. Thank you for the many ways you contributed to the calmness in our home.”
