About Us


Marika Mavromatis, founder of LoveBugs ®, was born in Thessaloniki, Greece. She emigrated to the United States in 1955 and quickly became an American Citizen.

Marika, pictured here, has liberated countless men, women, and children from their head lice infestations, here in America, with the same technique and non-toxic formula she created in Greece.

We know that discovering that someone in your home has head lice can be very troubling indeed, so our LoveBugs® Salons are here to service you as quickly, painlessly, and efficiently as possible.At our private, garden-like Salon nestled just above Mt. Diablo Blvd. in Downtown Lafayette or in Los Altos, LoveBugs® will discreetly take care of your lice problem with the LoveBugs® non-toxic, lice removal technique and special formula that was invented in Greece over 40 years ago. LoveBugs® will manually remove the live lice and the nits (eggs) from the hair and scalp.

The products used at the LoveBugs® Salon are non-toxic, 100% vegetarian, 100% natural, never tested on animals and organic. LoveBugs® does not use harsh chemicals or pesticides because there are risks associated with exposing yourself and/or your child to harmful chemicals and there is strong circumstantial evidence that head lice are becoming increasingly resistant to commercially available chemical treatments. Once a nit is laid, it takes 7-10 days for a nit to hatch and another 7-10 days for the female to mature and begin laying her own eggs. 99% of the time, children are accepted back into school the day after their first LoveBugs® Salon appointment.

Thank you for considering our service.
