Lice letter Or lice in Your Home? Don’t Panic!
I’m going to be honest here and tell you that we’ve gotten the lice letter sent home, AND, we’ve gotten lice! My big lice fear used to be that someone in my family would get it, and now that it’s happened, I have a new fear. I have a new fear because it happened! My new fear is that if one person gets it, others will get it too! Over a year ago, Scarlet got it and she has a LOT of long hair, let me tell you. I thought that was bad, but Des got it so much worse! He has the thickest hair on earth! It’s straight hair so you’d never know it at first, but it’s THICK! We’re a proud hair family.
With back to school on the horizon, or even here for some of you, this may be fresh on your mind too. Right? Right. I’m here to tell you – don’t freak out! I’ve got you! I’ve got a line of products that will address all your lice fears – like it spreading, like killing eggs, like preventing and treating super lice, etc. – and I have some tips for you too. Today we’re having real talk about it all. We’re talking about how it happens, how we can prevent it, and how we can treat it. No matter your fears, Vamousse has comprehensive solutions to help get you back in control now!
An infestation is the second most frequent health issue for school-aged kids in the United States. It affects more than 12 million children – ages 3 to 11 – every year. This is second only to the common cold, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
What to do about it:
First of all, did you get the lice letter from the school? Or did your child get exposed to lice? Or maybe you didn’t even know about the exposure, and suddenly there it is! Let’s talk about Vamousse products! I have the entire product line and each one is important in its own way:
Vamousse Lice Defense Daily Shampoo:
This is about prevention! If lice has been sighted at school, you can switch your child’s shampoo to Vamousse Lice Defense Daily Shampoo, because lab studies have shown that it kills lice daily with hair washing. It can actually take 4-6 weeks for telltale itching symptoms to start, which is why head lice spreads so easily. Don’t wait for the itch and use this pesticide-free daily shampoo that kills super lice before detection. This shampoo is shown in lab studies to kill lice with regular shampooing, and can replace existing shampoo for ongoing lice defense. It’s made with essential oil and can also be used to kill present adults and eggs. And it’s easy to find!
Get it over-the-counter nationwide at Walmart, Walgreens, Rite Aid, and in some regional chains including HEB, and online at Walgreens.com, RiteAid.com, Amazon.com, and Walmart.com.
Vamousse Lice Repellent Leave-In Spray:
This is an essential oil spray that repels lice and deters them from even laying eggs if they happen to already be there. This spray is designed to leave hair unscented, which is key! It’s a great way to repel lice from your hair at school or social gatherings, and is a proactive step against lice for daily use. Even before an outbreak occurs! And it does this without synthetic pesticides. You can find it at Walgreens, and online at Walgreens.com and Amazon.com.
Vamousse Lice Elimination Powder:
I really love this product, because it’s the final step in cleaning your home (or car) after treating a lice infestation. It’s a powder that kills by contact and contains no synthetic pesticides! And it has a clean scent. You can find it at Walmart and online at Amazon.com.
Vamousse Lice Treatment Mousse:
And finally, we have Vamousse Lice Treatment Mousse – which kills super lice and eggs where they hide. If you have an active infestation of lice, you want to do a one and done treatment, and that means taking care of adult lice and eggs. This pesticide-free product is clinically proven to kill lice and eggs in one treatment!* And it’s proven effective against pesticide-resistant super lice.* You can find it nationwide at Walmart, CVS, Walgreens, Rite Aid, Kmart, and in some regional chains including Food Lion and HEB, and online at Walmart.com, CVS.com, Walgreens.com, RiteAid.com and Amazon.com. It’s an easy-to-use mousse that is quick and precise, and rinses easily. It’s a 15 minute treatment and doesn’t rely on combing eggs out!
Another advantage is that most over-the-counter products that use pesticide-based active ingredients – and only kill adult lice – require a second application 7-10 days later. This does not require that because it works quickly to kill lice and eggs by disrupting the cuticular lipid layer and causing gut rupture and dehydration. So the battle is one and done with the mousse!
What to do moving forward:
Lice are a nuisance for sure, but they do not carry diseases and are very common among preschool and elementary school-aged children. Look for signs of lice by conducting head checks early and often because the best way to catch it early is by doing regular head checks! And know that Vamousse offers a full range of pesticide-free treatment, follow-up, and prevention solutions for the whole family and home! This is thorough, having you ready at any stage. Plus it’s available at national retailers and online, with no prescription required.
