I’ll never forget the time last year when my friend’s daughter got lice. I shivered when I heard the news and I remember that my head instantly felt itchy. In fact, every time we talked about it, I think I kept instantly itching my head. And even though our girls didn’t play together at the time, I found myself constantly checking my daughter’s hair to see if they had brought lice home. When I heard about how my friend had to bag up all of her kid’s stuffed animals, deep clean her house AND take her daughter somewhere TWICE to get the lice removed, I was shaking at the thought of this happening in my household!
Kids getting lice is way more common than you think. The CDC actually estimates as many as 12 million infestations occur each year in the United States and it’s very common among preschool and school-aged children. And as icky as they are, they don’t carry diseases at least! When that lice letter comes home, here’s what you gotta do!
When The Lice Letter Comes Home
If you get that dreaded letter home, the first thing you have to do is a head check – on the whole family. In fact, you can just do this regularly!
Under a bright light, check for lice and eggs. Watch for movement as lice will quickly travel away from the light.
Part your child’s hair to examine the scalp, lice may look like dandruff, but they cannot easily be removed.
Use a lice comb to work through small sections of hair looking for lice or nits (lice eggs). Make sure to pay extra attention to the nape of the neck, behind ears, under bangs and the crown of the head.
If you see lice or nits – don’t panic! That’s when you have to pick up Vamousse Lice Treatment. Vamousse Lice Treatment is clinically proven to kill lice and eggs in just 1 treatment! Vamousse Lice Treatment is an easy to use mousse that is quick, precise and rinses easily. It’s also safe, non-toxic, pesticide-free AND smells good! I love that it’s only ONE treatment, not multiple applications. My friend had to treat her daughter’s hair multiple times! You can be assured that after just one treatment, you can go back to living life normally.
You can also use the Lice Elimination Powder which eliminates lice and dust mites on non-washable household items as a final step in cleaning your home after treating an infestation. It kills the lice on contact and has such a clean scent too!
If you check your child’s head after the lice letter comes home and they are all good? High five! BUT, don’t relax. Because it COULD still happen! That’s why I’m using Vamousse Lice Defense Daily Shampoo and Vamousse Lice Repellent and Nit Defense!
The non-toxic shampoo can be used daily and can help defend against head lice. This is great for the whole family to use but especially the kiddos! The Vamousse Lice Repellent and Nit Defense is also something for everyone in the family to use daily. I’ve been using it on my kids and it’s so easy to use. It’s a safe and non-toxic spray made with essential oil that has just become part of our regular hair care routine in the morning and evening. It’s a proactive step against lice – it repels them without using synthetic pesticides and even stops them from laying eggs!
Whether there’s an outbreak at school or your child is headed to camp or a sleepover or you just want to rest easy, don’t hesitate to purchase these products for lice defense!
You’ll be able to find all of these Vamousse products in at CVS, Walgreens, online at Amazon.com and many other various retailers! DO NOT start the new school year without these in your bathroom!
