MY BIGGEST FEAR.
I’ve considered not letting my kids leave the house for fear of lice.
But that wouldn’t be good for their well-being nor would it be good for my sanity.
So I have endured my fear. I cringe when one of my kids scratches their heads. When they tell me they wore someone else’s hat. When they lean against the seat at the movie theater.
But that was before.
Now, I am still afraid of lice, but I have a whole lot more confidence that I am doing everything I can to help PREVENT it.
Yes, there are ways to help prevent your kids from catching lice and it all starts where you would imagine it would start – with their shampoo.
Fairy Tales Hair Care Products are a unique blend of pure rosemary, citronella, oils, lavender and tea tree extracts that act as a natural deterrent to lice and other insects.
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.
We received a Rosemary Repel® 12 oz. Combo with Spray & Shield kit from Fairy Tales to test out a couple of weeks ago and we’ve been using it diligently during that time.
The kit contained 4 bottles of their Rosemary Repel line:
- 12 oz. Rosemary Repel Shampoo
- 8 oz. Rosemary Repel Crème Conditioner
- 8 oz. Rosemary Repel Leave-in Conditioning Spray
- 8 oz. Rosemary Repel Spray & Shield Hair Spray
I love that these products are organic and all natural. My family has a lot of allergies and skin issues caused by shampoos and cleaners and the Fairy Tales product are great for their sensitive skin. And they smell SO GOOD too. I tease my daughter that she smells like an “old lady” because something about the rosemary smell brings up memories from my childhood of the grandmas, great-grandmas and great-aunts in my family. The smell reminds me of them – but in a good way. It’s pure, natural and clean.
And side from the peace of mind that the Rosemary Repel line is helping to prevent lice in my kids, I noticed a big difference in the softness and body of my daughter’s hair (my son’s is too short to notice). Her hair is fuller and softer than ever!
September is lice awareness month and I know some families have experienced lice already this summer.
I’m very happy to have learned about these products and as long as my kids are in school, I will continue to use them to ensure I am doing everything I can to keep the creepy-crawlies out of their hair.
For more information about the Fairy Tales Rosemary Repel product lines you can visit their website: Fairy Tale Hair Care For Children. You can purchase the products on their website or find a local salon that carries them. The salon I take Abby to does have them and I was very excited to learn that because it’s easy and convenient for me.
Also for information on lice outbreaks in your area, Fairy Tales has an iPhone app to keep you up to date!
I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour from Child’s Play Communication and Team Mom on behalf Fairy Tales. I received sample products to facilitate my review.
