Ladibug Haircare provide families with high quality, pesticide-free, hair care products. Ladibugs Hair Care uses only the highest quality of aromatic plant extracts and essential oils to control and eliminate lice. AG Hair prides itself on a meticulous selection of natural ingredients, ensuring they are gentle on hair but that they also deliver results.

Hair Expectations is a family friendly salon & spa.
