How to help prevent head lice

When nasty critters set up camp in your child’s hair it can be a frustrating process trying to eliminate them. But fear not, we can help you with your challenge. So what steps can you take to stop them invading hair in the first place and what should you do if you receive that dreaded head lice letter from school?

How can you help prevent head lice?

The bad news is, head lice are just a frustrating part of everyday life during childhood. The good news is, there are steps you can take to help eradicate them and stop them coming back time after time. Using Vosene Kids 3 in 1 Lice Repellent Conditioning Shampoo and Advanced Conditioning Defence Spray as part of your bathtime routine will ensure your little ones have squeaky-clean hair and help them to be nit-free. The natural ingredients in our Lice Repellent products – tea tree oil, lemon eucalyptus and citronella – are great at warding off pesky pests.

Each time you wash your child’s hair, check the hair at the front of the head, behind the ears and at the nape of the neck. This is where the eggs are most likely to hide and stick to the hair shaft – if you can zap these you’ll be well on your way to winning the battle.

It’s a good idea to invest in a high quality, fine-toothed nit comb and ‘wet comb’ the hair thoroughly. This involves shampooing the hair with our Vosene Kids 3 in 1 Lice Repellent Conditioning Shampoo, slathering it with lots of conditioner and then running a comb through sections of hair until it’s all done. We know it’s a drag, but if you stick to this routine religiously you’ll break the ongoing cycle of anguish and soon be waving goodbye to the nasties.

If you combine nit combing with our specially formulated Vosene Kids Lice Repellent products into your weekly routine, this will help in your quest for nit-free hair and it’s less likely that bathtime will descend into the battle of Armageddon, which will only cause unnecessary stress for you and your little ones. Some effective distraction techniques when combing include playing music in the bathroom and letting your sweethearts loose with a bottle of bubble bath. Oh the lengths us parents will go to to avoid strife at sunset.
