Yes, I said the dreaded 4-letter word! LICE plagues every school! Most parents (myself included) fear their child(ren) getting lice, not to mention the constant itching and stratching your child(ren) will have to endure over the course of the treatment of lice. Instead of allowing things to get out of hand, why not take preventative measures? Why not start using natural hair care products that repel lice on a daily basis? Well, that’s what I just started doing at home.
Fairy Tales Hair Care sent me three of their Rosemary Repel Lice Prevention products: Rosemary Repel Shampoo, Rosemary Repel Conditioner, and Rosemary Repel Conditioning Spray.
As a first grade teacher and mother of 2 young school bound kids, I have received the dreaded “Lice” letter from the school. Every time I hear the word LICE my head starts to itch (you know you are probably scratching at your head right now). Well, stop scratching and start preventing!
Risa Barash, Co-founder of Fairy Tales Hair Care, Shares Her Lice Prevention Tips with Fellow Moms
As a mother of two, Risa Barash is well aware of the panic that moms experience once they receive the dreaded “Lice in the classroom” letter from their child’s school. Being the co-founder of Fairy Tales Hair Care, creators of the best-selling Rosemary Repel line, she knows a thing or two about lice prevention. For more than 10 years she has been known as the “Lice Expert,” providing advice to moms nationwide, including a segment on the hit television show, The Doctors. Here are some of her tips on how to keep families lice-free:
Talk to your children about not sharing their personal items. Younger children tend to be very willing to share things like hats, headbands, hair ties, head phones and helmets, which is a no-no when it comes to lice prevention. Lice do not fly, jump or hop; they crawl from one head to another. Therefore, kids should know to avoid direct head to head contact.
Perform weekly head checks on your children. In the event that your child does get lice, it is always best to catch it in the early stages. Lice like to nest in warm places, so be sure to check the hot spots, which are behind the ears, the back of the neck and the part lines. Doing a weekly head check will allow you to stop the problem before it progresses.
Use natural hair care products that repel lice. It has been clinically proven that natural herbs and oils, such as rosemary, citronella and tea tree work as a repellant against lice. Products, such as Fairy Tales Hair Care’s Rosemary Repel, safely protect your children’s hair, without the use of chemicals. They bring peace of mind to the entire family.
These tips are the best ways to maintain a lice free household. With the right resources and information parents no longer need to panic once a “Lice in the Classroom” note is sent home from school. The Rosemary Repel products are available at Ulta stores, salons nationwide and on fairytaleshaircare.com.
Why use Fairy Tales Hair Care? Fairy Tales Hair Care Rosemary Repel has been the #1 recommended product by pediatricians, school nurses and moms since 1999! It has been clinically proven to help prevent head lice with organic herbs and natural plant extracts. Plus it smells great (I am a huge fan of tea tree oil).
