Lice Guard

Postby Susan124 » Wed Sep 30, 2009 6:28 am

With all of these posts about head lice, I wanted to share something. My daughter came home from school with them twice. I did all the right things...treated, cleaned, checked and rechecked. The second time, I also picked up a little bottle of stuff at WalMart called "Lice Guard". It's a spray that you put on their head in the morning. It repels the lice. It smells like gardenias. IT WORKS. It's a little expensive, almost 14.00 for a small bottle but we never had to use pesticides again. On the bright side, lice are about the only bugs that don't carry any diseases.

If WalMart doesn't have that stuff anymore, it's available online. Just google it. It won't kill lice, but it sure will prevent an infestation. It did for us anyway.

Tea tree oil works great and it also makes your hair look so healthy. Just add a drop to the bottle of shampoo.. I promise it works.

Better late than never? LOL

Yes, I can imagine that was a tearful process for all of you. I invested in a metal comb. It was ten bucks but it sure made the process easier. It now serves well as a flea comb for my long haired cats. Hahaha.

What is Tea Tree Oil? I have never heard of it. Where can I
get some? Our kids haven't had them this year but I have
eight in elementry and middle school so it is inevitable I'am
afraid. :roll: :roll:

With eight in school I know I will need something so I went
online and ordered some of this stuff and all the other stuff
to go with it just in case. Thanks for sharing because it is a
nightmare to deal with and I am not going to wait until I
need it and then find I have to wait to get it. 8-) 8-)

I have also heard that a few drops of white vinegar in you shampoo will also will help keep lice away.

Expensive doesn't matter as long as the child's well being is involved...

I agree with you. I kept that stuff until my kids were out of grade school.

We once had a really bad case of lice in our house and the one that got them was the one person that did'nt use any hair spray, all the rest of us used tons of Aqua-Net.So while this has not been proven by science I pesonally swear by it.Good old Aqua Net saved us all...

Ive been told that Rosspoint Kindergarten is infected with lice, so since this was a treatment topic I thought it wise to post here.

Isn't it school policy to send a note home?

The schools don't give a flying f_ck. All they care about is attendance. If not for that they wouldn't have a policy where a child can attend school with lice eggs in their hair.

What a dumb policy. No wonder they can never get rid of it.
