Help Prevent Lice Outbreaks with Lice Shield Products
Posted Jul 28 2010 10:35am
Lice! It’s a word that no parent wants to hear. If your kids are in school or go to camp, you’ve probably received a letter at one point announcing that someone was sent home with lice and to watch for signs of lice on your child. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, there are between 6 million and 12 million head-lice infestations in the U.S. every year, mostly in kids between the ages of three and twelve. These little buggers can be extremely hard to get rid of, so prevention is key.
One preventative product you might consider is Lice Shield Shampoo & Conditioner in 1. Lice Shield is designed to repel lice through a blend of natural oil extracts like citronella, rosemary and eucalyptus, which have been found to reduce the likelihood of lice infestation by over 80%! They also make Lice Shield Leave-In Spray, which can be sprayed in sports helmets and hats to help prevent the spread of lice, as well as used as a detangler. Both products are free of harmful pesticides.
These products are gentle enough to use every day, although I found the scent to be a little strong for daily use. However, I’m definitely keeping them on hand in case I get a note this year saying that head lice has appeared in my children’s classrooms. They’ll be using Lice Shield until the threat has passed!
