When I first heard about Fairy Tales Hair Care, a natural hair care line made for kids that uses natural ingredients to repel and remove lice, I knew I had to try it. This year for the first time I have two of my kids in the elementary school in town. This means double the risk for head lice exposure.
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 Spray & Shield just like a finishing hair spray and put the final “seal” on the hair shaft – creating a perfect barrier of protection. Keeps hair in place all day long.
I HAD lice as a child, and I remember, not fondly, the process of washing with nasty smelling shampoo, the combing, combing, combing process, and my mom doing I don’t know what to my beloved stuffed animals and bedding. I felt dirty and gross, even though it wasn’t my fault.
The Fairy Tales products do smell more earthly than other children’s hair care products, but its a pleasant smell. One thing I immediately noticed when I opened the bottles to smell it was that it isn’t GIRLIE- which as much as I love girlie scents, I do have a 4 year old son who would like to NOT smell like a fruit whatever when he gets out of the bath or shower. He in particular is overjoyed at the Fairy Tales line because the packaging isn’t girlie and the scent is more neutral. [click to continue…]
