Interesting Product

Autumn is a “lousy” season.

As we approach the beginning of the school year I am once again on alert. Yes people, it’s lice time again.

Statistically September has the highest rates of lice infestations.

Of course I’m not going to just post about that fact. I’m going to share with you some great news. I found “the first 100% chemical-free head lice product line” – Ladibugs, Inc.They have a prevention line – Shampoo, Conditioner and Leave in Mint Spray. The first two products are pretty self-explanatory. Lice hate peppermint and tea tree. Make the hair smell like these two things and the lice will not invade. The spray is the coolest though. You can spray it liberally behind the ears and on the neck (obviously). But wait! It gets better. You also use it to spray pillows, backpacks, coats and anywhere else heads might rest on during the day. This is better than an apple a day. The smell stays for 8 hours – the whole school day. Wonderful!

They also sell a kit for elimination – Mint Serum, Mousse and a Metal Microgrooved Comb. Yes, elimination. We would rather prevent, right?

Please remember that lice love clean scalps so this is not a cleanliness issue. It happens to millions of North Americans a year. We just need a safe effective solution for the problem. One that the scalp will not become resistant to like the chemical ones you’d buy at the drug store.

Ladibugs can be bought in salons across North America and online. I found a section on their website where you can type in your address to find your closest place it is sold in.

If you haven’t read it already here’s a link to my post “5 Eco-friendly Tips to Prevent Head Lice“.

I’m hoping this school year we are just as successful in avoiding lice at our home as last year. If I don’t freak out when an outbreak note comes home from school, and can stop from immediately buzzing my oldest sons hair off, I will consider it a success.

  1. Finally a prevention for lice. My boys only got it once while in day care, but it was something I prayed we would never have to deal with again.
