I know the topic of lice is gross. We never want our kids to get them. We all know the feeling, your child comes home with a letter from the school nurse telling parents that lice is going around. They give you some info, and just thinking about it, you start to itch. Thankfully, I have never had to deal with my children getting lice and I hope I never will. Circle of Friends has some great products to help keep things that way. I was recently sent their Lice Defense Family Kit which includes, shampoo, conditioner, hair spray and styling gel. These great products help keep lice and other insects from your child’s hair and scalp naturally with their unique blend of Tea Tree, Andiroba and Lavender oils. They also added Vitamin B-5 and glycerin to hydrate and soften your child’s hair.
Keeping the Bugs at Bay
When it comes to head lice the solution is usually focused on harsh, unpleasant treatments that
must be administered to children after the lice come home. But Circle of Friends is shifting the
focus to prevention. After all – isn’t preventing lice in the first place the most desirable option?
Introducing Lice Defense Shampoo and Leave-in Conditioner, a powerful – yet gentle duo that
deters lice naturally, leaving little noggins squeaky clean and insect free.
Tea Tree, Andiroba and Lavender Oils are the key ingredients that keep lice way safely and
naturally. Lemon Peel Oil acts as a natural cleanser, while Vitamin B-5 and Glycerin hydrate the
hair leaving it soft, manageable and free of tangles. And unlike those harsh, stinky and irritating
chemical treatments, with Lice Defense parents and children will actually enjoy bath time thanks
to its kid-pleasing lavender scent.
Use Lice Defense Shampoo several times a week when an outbreak of lice has been discovered in
your community until the outbreak is under control. It is gentle enough to use daily if preferred.
Spray Leave-in Conditioner on hair (wet or dry) each morning. The fine mist will coat the hair and
provide an extra lice deterrent. Lice do not like hair that has product on it, especially when that
product is infused with tea tree oil!
