This All Natural Healthy Head Lice Prevention Spray is one back to school item you will not want to be without this school year.
A new school year also means another year of avoiding the dreaded itchy head.
That’s why we must do whatever it takes to keep our kids heathy from the top of their heads to their toes.
How to Keep From Getting Lice
When my daughter was in 1st grade her entire class had a nasty outbreak of lice.
It was the worst year of my life because no matter how much we did to get rid of it, she would continue to get it from the other kids in the classroom who did not have parents who took it seriously.
We spent hundreds and hundreds of dollars during our battle with lice.
One of the things her teacher had told us was that contrary to popular belief lice was not a dirty thing, but rather a clean thing.
The lice would not choose to inhabit a head of dirty hair, but only liked nice clean hair.
She suggested that we spray hairspray on her hair each morning before sending her to school to make it “dirty” so the lice would jump to a less dirty head of hair.
It did seem to work, but I never liked the idea of covering my 5 year old with the toxic chemicals found in the hairspray.
Still, I figured it was better than constantly using the lice poison shampoo on her.
It felt like a never ending nightmare.
Thankfully I found a better option and I’m happy to share it with you too!
