The bane of my life.

Most of us parents, whether we care to admit it or not have had to deal with these nasties.

Last school year was particularly the worst in our house. Munchkin kept on getting them. So much that I wanted to shave us all bald!! At one stage I was literally combing her hair every 2 days to keep on top of them. I didn’t want to keep putting chemicals on her. In desperation I asked, or rather wailed, for help on my facebook. My friends recommended getting a shampoo that contained tea tree oil as that is meant to repel the little blighters. I am not a fan of the smell of tea tree oil but had gotten to the stage that I was willing to try anything.

On the hunt for some shampoo I came across Vosene.



And we decided to try it.

Did it work?

YES!! I never found another headlice again while using it. Although it says daily use we didn’t use it daily as I noticed Munchkin’s scalp was getting dry. But even simply using it once a week and with the spray in between was sufficient for us. The smell can be overpowering initially if you don’t like tea tree oil.

    at one point my daughter was constantly getting them from some one at school. we tried everything (even vinegar water). in the end we found a nitty gritty comb was the best and then used a defensive spray each day. shes never had them since.

    We have tried everything in our house! In the end we went with tying their hair back which helped and using tea tree oil shampoo. Not ideal I know but it seemed to eventually do the job!

  58. Kerry Brown
    August 30, 2014 at 3:40 pm (3 years ago)

    Check hair at least once a week, and keep up with using a tea tree based shampoo, i have found it to be the only thing effective at keeping them away!
