Created in 1999, Fairy Tales Hair Care is the worldwide leader in lice prevention! Rosemary Repel products are infused with organic oils of rosemary, citronella, tea tree, lavender, anise, cinnamon, peppermint and geranium to create a barrier of protection on the hair to keep styles in and lice out. Vitamins A, E, jojoba, aloe and panthenol are added to make hair silky soft, manageable and protected from head lice and other insects. Perfect for everyday use. SLS and paraben free, too.
Directions: Shampoo and Crème Condition every few days, remember, lice like clean hair, not dirty! Use the Rosemary Repel Leave-in Conditioning Spray EACH morning before school, camp or daycare. Spray the back of the neck, behind ears and tops of shoulders. Then, use the Gel to put the final “seal” on the hair shaft – creating a perfect barrier of protection.
Tips to prevent head Lice
Avoid head to head contact at school and home
Do not share clothing, hats, scarves, sports uniforms and helmets, coats and hair accessories
Do not share combs and brushes or towels
Do not lie in beds, on couches or car seats that have recently been in contact with an infested person
Lice are usually spread through head to head contact and less frequently by lice that crawl. Preschool and elementary-age children, age 3-11, and their families are infested more often. Girls get head lice more often than boys. In the United States, African-Americans rarely get head lice. Personal hygieine or cleanliness in the home or in school has nothing to do with getting head lice.
To Prevent Re-Infestation
Do not worry about furniture sprays, they are useless. Vacuuming the areas such as floors, carpets, bedrooms and couches is sufficient. Dont forget to vacuum the car seats.
Wash the bedding each morning in hot water. Dry on high heat for at least 20 minutes.
Store all stuffed animals, large comforters etc. in a sealed plastic bag for 2 weeks.
Soak combs and brushes in Lysol or alcohol for at least 1 hour.
