Once your child starts nursery or school, head lice are almost inevitable at some stage. Although there are many different treatments on the market now, we have always found them to be a real pain – usually they are shampoos that have to be left on for a certain amount of time before being washed out. Quite frankly, some of the treatments stick to high heaven, and washing them out is like removing creosote. The chemicals stop normal shampoo from lathering up, meaning you can wash the hair over and over and over and still end up with a child who wakes up in the morning with their hair plastered to their head in a greasy, smelly mop.
We were recently sent some Hedrin Treat & Go – a new, no-fuss way to get rid of head lice and eggs. I was dubious at first – this is a spray that you apply to the hair, blow dry, and then leave over night, or all day. But actually? We were pleasantly surprised. The spray doesn’t have a chemically smell – in fact, it doesn’t really smell at all, especially after blow drying. The instructions tell you to rinse before washing out, and although it takes a couple of rinses, it does come out quite well, allowing you to add shampoo and lather up the hair afterwards.
Obviously, the ideal situation would be no head lice at all, and Hedrin Protect & Go Spray claims to help here. Simply apply to damp or dry hair, comb through and leave. Used regularly, at least twice a week, this conditioning spray works by killing lice before they can take hold. It left the kids hair really soft and silky, and since using it we have not had head lice in the house. Yes, it’s not the cheapest product out there, but if a couple of sprays a week can help keep head lice at bay, it could save a fortune on treatments!
