The Nitty Gritty on Head Lice!
School is back, and yes this means the dreaded itch maybe back too. Unfortunately there is not a lot you can do to prevent you child from getting it, but here are my tips for how to BEST manage the situation.
Use a preventative Shampoo & Conditioner. Our Petite Chique head lice treatment shampoo is an easy to use, lightweight effective head lice product for children. The unique formulation with advanced technology allows the shampoo to target the areas under attack and instantly stun the lice. Our unique conditioning system can help penetrate and break the bond between head lice and the hair. This helps loosen them, allowing them to be combed out without difficulty. We recommend our head lice products for regular use on all hair types for the WHOLE family.
Wash just 1-2 times per week. Its unknown if head lice prefer clean or dirty hair. The rumor has always been that they prefer clean hair. My recommendation to only wash 1-2 times a week is more about allowing a natural oil to nourish the scalp and hair, which will help with head lice removal should you need. It also makes it much easier to tie up
Ponytails with plaits or braids are a must. NEVER should your child be at school with their hair out. Its just asking for trouble. Tying their hair back as neatly as possible is the BEST prevention method.
Not too long and not too short. Super long hair will increase the risk of catching head lice as will hair that is too short to tie back. Somewhere just on or below the shoulders is best.
Combing at least once a week. Combing is the ONLY way to remove all the eggs. Yes it’s a huge pain, but at the end of the day, you will find lice or you wont. If you do stumble across an egg or two, you can be onto it straight away. Be in a habit of combing 1-2 times per week (when you wash)
Chemicals are not necessary. If you do have a head lice situation, using our Petite Chique Conditioner with a comb is the best way to remove the lice. Small sections starting at the nape of the neck, wiping on a tissue as you go.
Wash everything! Ben linen, pillow cases, towel, clothing. Remember to vaccum the couches, tops of chairs and the CAR SEAT! These little buggers can last a day or two off the head, so anywhere they have been, needs attention.
