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.

I actually use this vosene spray and it lasts for ages (ive 2 boys). I found it work well so far.

Prevention is better than treatment! I only use this vosene shampoo too! I did stop for a while and we couldn’t get rid of them. But now we only use this shampoo and haven’t had any since!
I use the defender spray everyday
Comb the hair through whilst in the bath or shower, with the headlice comb and lots of conditioner on your childs hair, the head lice seem to come out of the hair easy

regular checks, tie hair up and tea tree is great.

Tea tree shampoo is brilliant
If you suspect lice, comb hair often with nit comb. I usually do it when the kids are in the bath.
Nit comb usually does the trick!
Patience & a bit of tea tree oil
loosen the eggs with white vinegar first before combing
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.
I keep my daughter’d hair in plaits for school, well conditioned and checked regularly!
Lots of conditioner, left on!
Hair tied up and use conditioner – prevention is the answer lol
Keep the hair tied up and check regularly
keep the hair short and comb through conditioner in each wash
If u have a son , consider gelling his hair for school , a simple smooth of gel can repel the beasties !
have boys regular comb there hair looking for lice then not comb
I ALWAYS USE VOSENE
Use Vosene, it is amazing.

Tie hair back and check regularly
I cover their hair with conditioner 2 or 3 times a week and comb through. When I’ve finished I wash their hair and then add a few drops of tea tree oil
Looks f checking, keep hair tied back and I add tea tree oil to the shampoo myself
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!
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!
