    Encourage your children (especially girls) not to touch heads with their friends, i.e. when cuddling/playing.

  • Keri Jones

    September 14 at 8:25 am

    Spray a leave in conditioner on towel dried hair and comb through with a nit comb. Do it over white paper to see if any nits are coming out x

  • Keri Jones

    September 14 at 8:26 am

    If using a nit treatment, use on a friday and again on the sunday (if required) so all nits are gone before going back to school/work x

  • Keri Jones

    September 14 at 8:29 am

    If anyone in the house shares a comb or brush, wash thoroughly with Vosene Head Lice Repellant and then buy more brushes!

    If you hear head lice are going around check your child’s hair (actually check everyone in the family!) when you wash it, the base of the neck is a good place to start. That was always the first place my Gran looked x

    I always french plait my daughters hair for school, and a weekly routine of bath and a good nit comb search just to be on safe side.

  • Tammy Tudor

    September 15 at 2:57 pm

    Hair tied back for every day at school and do a final rinse with tea tree water when washing.

  • Sarah Morris

    September 15 at 8:44 pm

    We use a spray made of tea tree oil drops and water, sprayed on the hair before school each day, and regular shampoos with tea tree oil extract, seems to work, we haven’t seen any of the horrors for a couple of years now…. fingers crossed.

    ive always found a cheap and quick way of ridding hair of nits is to use conditioner and a nit comb and comb them out. It does take a while and probably not best for very long hair but ive always used that method for my oldest daughter and never had many problems

  • olivia280177

    September 16 at 1:46 pm

    I got nits (oh, the shame) when I was pregnant – I couldn’t use the harsh treatments – my mum bought a bag of bark from some herbalist and boiled it on the hob!! She looked like a witch…and it didn’t really work!!!

    I am sick to the back teeth of the same parents not treating their children. Even though my daughter goes to school smelling from head to toe of tea tree oil and having her hair tied back she still gets infected and it costs a fortune for the ointments. Parents should be charged with neglect when they refuse to treat their children.

      got to say im not battling it at school, they are very good at alerting us all.. its OH’s daughter, her mum just cannot be bothered i assume, its not that she doesnt know as you dont even have to look, just sit near her any you can see them crawling, its awful & REALLY winds me up!! i do her har when shes here but she spends one night a week here and the rest of the week at her mums. poor little girl 🙁

    I put my dauhters hair in a tight bun, my aunty also recommend ed your products as my cousi has been using it since starting school and hasnt caught one, she has long thick hair so easy target without your products

    Tea tree oil and / or conditioner and a nit comb seems to work for my grandchildren. Their mother keeps their hair short so if they have the problem it is easier to deal with.

  • m knight

    September 17 at 8:34 pm

    always re-treat a week later as they have a week life cycle

  • jodie harvey

    September 18 at 10:59 pm

    check daily and use a head lice repelent spray. also make sure you treat everyone in the household if one child has them, and repeat after a week

  • Rebecca Duffy

    September 20 at 6:36 pm

    It’s hard to avoid head lice with young children if there is an infestation in their class but if you keep your child’s hair tied back, use this Vosene repellent spray and shampoo and check with a nit comb for them regularly then you are doing your best!! 🙂

  • Sarahann Tonner

  • Hazel Christopher (@HazyLou)

    September 30 at 9:30 am

    Use a nite comb after every bath time even if you don’t suspect they have nits/lice it’s always good to check so you can catch them early.

  • Natalie Crossan

    Apparently they like really really clean hair. If you know of an outbreak, be mindful. For example, I wash my daughters hair every other night/every other 2 nights when an outbreak at nursery starts x

    Tea tree oil shampoo is fab for keeping the blighters away, as is using straighteners – they die from the heat

  • Fern

    tea tree oil is brilliant, vosene spray & shampoo is great for prevention and using a hairdryer as they cant stand the heat, hairdryerone side hoover the other and away they will go! 🙂

  • Maddy

    Leave conditioner on all day to help stop them taking hold

  • Maddy

    October 12 at 9:59 am

    Very time-consuming, but combing conditioner through dry hair helps to remove nits & lice
