Ever since Eva and Megan came into the world with a full head of hair, those beautiful blonde locks have kept on growing. By the time they started school their hair was long enough to sit on and, although school insists that all long hair must be tied up, I lived in fear of them catching the creepy crawlies!!!
Creepy crawlies, nits, head lice, whatever you call them, they freak me out! So I was religious about plaiting the girls hair each day, making sure that it was clipped back or wound into a bun, and painstakingly checked their hair each time a letter came home about an outbreak of head lice.
I will never forget the first time I noticed Eva scratching her head and how I had felt a sense of panic rising in my throat as I asked, “Eva, is your head itching?”. And as she frantically dug her fingernails into her scalp I parted her hair to discover that not only did she have head lice, but that there were literally hundreds of them!!
As a parent I felt pretty awful. I remember feeling incredibly dirty somehow, and so ashamed that I hadn’t noticed sooner, but most of all I just felt really sad for Eva whose eyes had filled with tears as she had sobbed, “But I don’t want creepy crawlies to live in my hair!!”.
And so, we set about trying to get rid of them.
For six long weeks, having spent an absolute fortune at the pharmacy, I battled to get rid of those head lice and despite the fact I was certain I had them all, one of them would always find a way back! It broke my heart that every night before bed I had to comb through every inch of Eva’s hair, and with hair that length, we must have wasted hours coming through it until finally we got them under control!
Knowing how horrendous that experience was, I am always one step ahead of the game these days, especially when the children are back at school. This year I am armed and ready with Vamousse Head Lice Treatment which is proven to kill 100% of lice and eggs within 15 minutes in scientific tests.
This is amazing news for families as, even thought we might not like to think about it 1 in 3 children in the UK will get head lice at some point during the year.
Vamousse Head Lice Treatment is proven to kill 100% of lice and eggs within 15 minutes in scientific tests and in one single application.
And using it couldn’t be easier! It comes in a mousse form which is non-greasy.
You can then use Vamousse Protective Shampoo, recommended for use for at least two weeks following Vamousse Head Lice Treatment, to make sure that the hair stays protected from those creepy crawlies!
I feel so reassured knowing that we have Vamousse Head Lice Treatment in the bathroom cabinet should head lice strike this term and will definitely be using Vamousse Protective Shampoo to cover all bases!
