Disclosure Button SkyFairy Tales School Nurse

Every mom dreads seeing the letter from the school nurse informing them that there has been an outbreak of head lice in the school. *shudder*

What can you do to help prevent your child from coming home with head lice in their hair?

1.  Use natural prevention hair care products

My daughter attends a charter school that has a focus on natural, sustainable living and one of the recommendations from the moms-in-the-know is botanical solutions.  A product like Rosemary Repel from Fairy Tales, contains organic rosemary, citronella, tea tree, anise, lavender and geranium oils.  They are proven safe, gentle and effective to help repel lice.  My daughter has been using this combination for a few weeks now and we like the scent!  We use the Rosemary Repel Shampoo and the Rosemary Repel Conditioner.

The main method of spreading lice is head-to-head contact.  You want to do anything you can to avoid any close contact and to make your child’s hair an undesirable place for lice to live!

Morning Routine BestThis is our new hair care morning routine:

  • Rosemary Repel Conditioning Spray – I first pick up layers of my daughters thick hair and spray generously, layer by layer.  The conditioning spray seems to help get the tangles out of her hair, so then we use a Tangle Teezer and comb through the hair.  This also distributes the spray through the hair.  But I do also give an extra spray to the lice “hot spots” – behind her ears, the back of her neck and on her part line.
  • Rosemary Repel Styling Gel – Rosie has dry, curly hair so I love that the styling gel is alcohol-free.  It adds shine and control to her hair, especially the short little fly-away pieces around her face.  It also contains organic rosemary, tea tree and geranium, adding another layer of protection against head lice.
  • Rosemary Repel Hair Spray – We usually style Rosie’s hair into a ponytail, bun, pigtails, or a braid so I use the hair spray as a finisher to keep her hair in place (as much as possible).  The hair spray is loaded with organic herbs of rosemary, citronella, geranium and sage, again repelling any critters that may want to move in!


2.  Don’t share anything that touches your head

Remind your child not to share anything with other children that touches their hair such as hats, coats, headbands, caps, etc.  Also don’t share towels, pillows, or blankets.


3.  Choose a defensive hair style

Keep your child’s hair in styles that restrict hair movement such as braids, ponytails, etc.

4.   Watch the coat rack

Tell your child to watch where they hang their coats.  Use your own hook and don’t share.  Keep as far away as possible from others.

We are having fun with our Fairy Tales Hair Care

and it gives me peace of mind to know it’s helping to repel lice!

About Fairy Tales:  Fairy Tales Hair Care was created over 20 years ago in the Fairy Tales Salon in Hewlett, NY. For years, parents would ask the stylists what were these products that made their children’s hair so soft and manageable. But our stylists just smiled and said it was our secret recipe! The Fairy Tales Hair Care line was launched nationally in 1999 with great success! Within one week of our launch, Rosie O’ Donnell was showing off her bottle of Rosemary Repel Shampoo on her talk show. We were a hit! Parents and kids love these natural products loaded with organic herbs to cleanse, condition style and most importantly, help repel hair lice.

  4. 4

    I learned that Sept. is National Lice Prevention Month from their FB page, and also learned that they share zip codes where lice have been seen online on their FB page so other parents in that zip code know that lice are there.

    I have never heard of this nonchemical way to get rid of lice. I like that it is so much safer for your children to use.
