PARENTS need no longer fear the dreaded note home from school announcing an outbreak of head lice, if they heed these hints:
• A weekly head check can help you stay ahead of an outbreak. According to a recent survey, 56 percent of parents do one. Lice lay eggs in warm, moist areas around the head.
• Wash your family’s hair with a product clinically proven to help prevent them, with organic herbs and natural plant extracts, and no chemicals or pesticides. Called Rosemary Repel®, the shampoo and crème conditioner gently cleanse, nourish and protect hair.
If you still get lice: Vacuum floors, carpets, furniture, beds and car seats; wash bedding and dry on high heat. Consider the Lice Good-Bye Survival Kit. The kit includes Lice Good-Bye natural lice/nit remover, Rosemary Repel Spray and the metal Terminator Comb, proven 300 percent more effective than all other combs.
