I don’t know about other parents, but despite having nannied, and been a children’s nurse, and a parent of some years, when the letter comes home from school with the announcement “A child in the class has head lice, please can you check and treat your child’s hair” or words to that effect, I immediately start to feel itchy.
Head-lice are a common complaint of childhood, annoying, lingering and irritating, and they spread very easily and can be a nuisance to get rid of. The chemical treatments, though effective when used rarely, smell nasty and are full of chemicals that aren’t the nicest or safest thing to use on our children’s heads and the head-lice and their eggs (nits) can rapidly become immune to the formulas. We have found “bug busting” an effective method, but when I was offered a chance to review Vosene for Kids 3 in 1 Conditioning Shampoo and Hair Defense spray, I thought it would be a great idea to try it. We recently had a letter home, for Big Girl’s year, saying head-lice were about, so I am keen to try and prevent them spreading to her if we can, and this pleasant smelling shampoo and defence spray (which also works quite well as a hair de-tangler) have gone down well so far with she who is fussy about her hair products (not me, her)
Use as a daily shampoo and conditioner. Simply apply generously to wet hair, lather and then rinse. This Dermatologically tested 3 in 1 conditioning shampoo gently cleanses and conditions kids’ hair. When used with any Vosene Kids Head Lice Repellent Spray, our specially formulated conditioning shampoo will help prevent head lice.
- – Cleans, conditions and defends*
- – Specially formulated for kids’ finer hair and sensitive scalps
- – Contains Chamomile and Panthenol to gently cleanse and condition hair and scalp
- – Contains Tea Tree Oil and Lemon Eucalyptus to leave a natural fresh fragrance
It smells nice, and was easy to use and rinse out. Big Girl washes her own hair, I wash Small Boy’s and as mentioned, is gentle on their scalps. Tea Tree oil is a known head lice repellent.
The Defence Spray:
Our clinically proven formula now provides even more protection against head lice. Instantly de-tangles even the worst knots leaving hair healthy looking and shiny. Simply apply to washed, damp hair (or dry hair in between washes) to help prevent head lice from striking back!
- – De-tangles, conditions, shines and defends!
- – Specially formulated for kids’ finer hair
- – Contains natural ingredients to help repel head lice: Citronella Oil, Eucalyptus Leaf Oil, Rosemary Leaf Oil &, Lemongrass Leaf Oil
- – Leaves hair shiny and healthy looking
- – Simply spray it on each day before brushing!
The spray also smells nice, and doesn’t leave hair greasy, and helps to de-tangle hair, which is a bonus. We have been using it in the mornings as we get ready for school, and so far, no signs of the little itch inducing beasties. We are very happy using the shampoo and spray, I feel comfortable that using them, plus checking hair regularly, will hopefully keep head-lice away, this term.
