I know that lice happens. No one is immune. That’s just not they way it goes. But, there are things that can help protect against head lice!
Here a few of the things I’m doing in the day to day for my family.
- We have a family rule that no one shares hats, hair accessories, or hair brushes.
- We bought my son his own batting helmet for baseball season.
- We don’t wash our hair everyday.
- Everyone leaves the house with a little bit of hair product in there hair…. hair spray, hair gel, etc.
- We’re using Fairy Tales Rosemary Repel products as part of day to day routine.
Fairy Tales Hair Care is the leader in affordable natural hair care products for families. They have a brand new reformulated line dedicated to keeping us lice free. It is a uniquely formulated and clinically proven to help protect against head lice – providing awesome repelling protection.
Formulated with a proprietary blend of organic Rosemary, Peppermint, Tea Tree and Citronella to help prevent head lice and nits. Rosemary Repel® Shampoo & Conditioning Spray were shown to be 96% effective at repelling lice when used together. All products are 100% chemical, pesticide, dairy, gluten and nut free!
Not only do these products help prevent lice, they also are amazing at leaving my children’s hair looking and smelling great. At age 2.5 and 6, Lola and Malone are picky to please in the bathtub. They both have their own levels of pickiness. Lola only really wants princess stuff (hello… two!) and Malone is picky about the way things smell. Malone was more than okay with the scent, he said it reminded him of being in nature (I think that might be due to the Citronella). The conditioner and the conditioner spray worked really well in Lola’s long hair. We’ve been through a few different brands and this one really works well!
