Lice Repellent Options by Babo Botanicals

Babo Botanicals Lice Repellent Shampoo & Conditioner
From Panic to Peace of Mind

It’s that time of the year again…Back to school! This sudden amount of close contact with other kids can mean breakouts of head lice for schools and families alike!

It’s a problem in the United States that is getting worse, in fact there are between six and twelve million cases annually. It translates to hours spent laundering lice-infested bed sheets, blankets, clothes, and stuffed animals, missed school days for children, missed work days for parents, and countless dollars being spent on treatments that may or may not be effective.

In the past, there have been two main ways to treat lice after they appear. One is to use pharmacy shampoos, the majority of which are laden with chemicals that can irritate the skin and damage hair follicles, and prove less effective as lice become more resistant to them. Some studies have even suggested that these chemicals may, in fact, be carcinogenic…YIKES! The other treatment is to painstakingly remove lice and their nits (eggs) by hand using a special comb, a process that takes time and patience and often needs repeating.

Our friends at Babo Botanicals suggest taking the upper hand and discouraging head lice before they appear. This is done much in the same way we protect our children from sunburn or bug bites…prevention!

Babo Botanicals Rosemary Tea Tree Lice Repel Shampoo and Babo Botanicals Lice Repellent Spray both feature a unique blend of rosemary, mint, and tea tree oil to provide a safer, all-natural alternative to harsh chemicals. This pesticide-free, additive-free mix naturally repels lice while cleansing and conditioning hair with pure botanical ingredients.

For best results in detouring head lice, use Babo Botanicals Rosemary Tea Tree Lice Repel Shampoo and then mist on the Babo Botanicals Lice Repellent Spray. During a breakout at school, use the lice comb two times a week to ensure that there are no eggs in your child's hair.
