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?

We have received a letter from school about head lice – what should we do?

First things first, check your child’s hair for nits and lice straight away. We’d always recommend a ‘wet comb’ with a fine-toothed metal nit comb, even if you can’t spot any invaders at first glance. It’s definitely worth combing the whole family at this point as all it takes is a cuddle from a doting sibling (yes, we know these are rare!) with lice and they’ll be straight back in the clean hair faster than you can say, ‘Pass the nit comb’. Repeat the process every week and as soon as you’re sure your kiddies are clear of head lice, use our Vosene Kids 3 in 1 Lice Repellent Shampoo and Advanced Conditioning Defence Spray. We know time is precious, but rest reassured, this is time well spent.
