What To Do If Your Child Has Head Lice
As parents, we all dread that text message from school that says that there are cases of head lice in your child’s class. Head lice are annoying little things that you don’t want anywhere near you. Luckily, there are many effective treatments and also ways to help prevent your child from getting head lice.
Getting Rid of Head Lice
I would always choose to avoid harsh chemicals when possible, for both myself and my children. Many lice treatments are full of things I don’t want near my kids, but Nitty Gritty Aromatherapy Head Lice Solution is a great option that is gentle on kids but will get rid of head lice. Safe but effective!
Nitty Gritty, that is a company that was founded by three London mums, also sell a multi award-winning Nitty Gritty NitFree Comb. The patented micro spiral comb is the only head lice product to remove not only the smallest head lice as well as the nits. It also removes the unhatched, live louse eggs to avoid further infestations. All parents of school age children should have this Nitty Gritty duo available at home.
Preventing Head Lice
Since head lice are mainly spread by direct head-to-head or hair-to-hair contact, there are simple things that you can do to help prevent them:
- Avoid head-to-head / hair-to-hair contact between children when playing at home, at school and in other places.
- Don’t share any clothing or accessories that go on the head or near hair.
- Don’t share combs, brushes or towels.
If someone in the family has been infested, disinfest all combs and brushes, vacuum floor and furniture and wash (hot wash) and dry clothing and bed linens that have been used by that person. Things that can’t be washed can be sealed in a plastic bag for 2 weeks instead.
To help prevent head lice, use a defence spray, like Nitty Gritty Conditioning Defence Spray to discourage head lice from jumping back onto your child’s head.
