Lice Prevention Products
I never thought I would be in the market for lice prevention products, but after a recent lice infestation I found out real quick about all the products available. The problem I faced was that the lice problem was on my 19 month old and the typical products aren’t safe on little ones. I needed something non-toxic and EFFECTIVE! I was mortified when I realized she had lice and I was at a loss of where she could have picked them up. We were away on vacation and she was the only one who had them so after a process of elimination I realized that it was from a hat I had purchased, I bought it before we left and put it right on without washing it (mind you it was brand new)!! I learned a very valuable lesson wash everything before wearing even if its brand new, you never know who has tried it on before you…I will NEVER again try on hats in a store! I was so happy to receive my package of LiceGuard, a review of their items couldn’t have come at a more perfect time! I had done a few home remedies to no avail…
Lice And Nit Removal
One key to getting rid of your lice infestation is lice and nit removal. If you don’t get the lice out and get all of the nits you will have a re-infestation in 7-10 days when the eggs hatch. Here are the steps I followed: First, I used the LiceGuard Head Lice Shampoo $14.99 (applied on wet hair, let sit for 5 minutes then rinse); Second, I used the LiceGuard Robi Comb $29.95 (a motorized comb that kills the lice on contact); Third, I used the LiceGuard Egg & Nit Comb $10.99 (sectioning hair using the hair pick and using the comb to remove the eggs/nits); and Fourth, I used the LiceGuard Head Lice Repellent Spray $14.95 (I used this on her hair, and everyone elses in the house just to prevent transmission). The comb worked well but there were some stubborn ones I had to hand pick out of her hair. You have to be diligent about washing all the items that comes into contact with the infested person until the problem is GONE! I literally did 3-4 loads of laundry a day for 2 weeks to make sure everything was super clean and of course following up with vacuuming several times a day. I checked her head 3 times a day and on the 10th day I did another treatment just to be safe, since the LiceGuard Shampoo is non-toxic I wasn’t hesitant to do it again even though I hadn’t found anything (she’s 19 months and didn’t sit still I was paranoid that I had missed something)!
Head Lice Paranoia
To say that I had head lice paranoia was an understatement. I was angry, violated and exhausted by the end of the whole ordeal. I have two kids and keeping them separate during this time was difficult but having the LiceGuard products to help me conquer the lice infestation was a life saver! If it ever happens again, I will go with LiceGuard from the get go! And from now on before we leave the house especially when the kids go to school I will spray their head with LiceGuard Head Lice Repellent!
