Kids + school = Nits. It is unfortunate but true.
You may be lucky and survive a year, two, maybe even three without your children having a nit infestation but it is inevitable. It will happen eventually and you will not like it.
You will not enjoy sifting through every individual strand of hair in search of head lice and their eggs and you will certainly not like having to wash all the bedding and hair brushes. It is a tedious task locating and killing them. Just hoping you haven’t missed any.
Head lice treatments
Over the years head lice treatments have definitely improved and they are making it easier and more convenient for families to eradicate these pesky little critters.
Gone are the days of overnight treatments. Gone are days of just hoping your child doesn’t bring them home daycare, kindy or school. There are preventative sprays that help reduce the risk and then of course the new fandangle treatments that kill them fast with minimal fuss.
My son first got nits when he was in kindy and it was painstaking! They were only teeny tiny but they were there and required some serious searching, combing and nit shampooing. It took hours. Hours of head scratching and hoping they didn’t jump into my hair. I shampooed my hair with head lice treatment just for good measure. I wished there was an easier way but alas, there was not.
Since then, my eldest three children have had them a couple of times. It was generally within a couple of weeks of school returning after school holidays, you know when life is hectic and the last thing you want or need is to be stressing about head lice.
Euky Bear – more than Euky Bearub
Up until recently, I never knew that Euky Bear had a head lice range. I knew they did baby eucalyptus rub because we have used that for years but I didn’t know they did more. We have since used the Euky Bear Blitz Nitz Mousse and it was fantastic, but they also have another head lice product – Blitz Nitz Spray & Go. We are yet to use it but have it ready as back up. It is a spray in, leave on treatment that allows parents to spray it in their child’s hair just as you would a detangling spray. You do not pick through hair or stress, just continue to go about your day.
So is it a detangling spray or a nit treatment? It is a nit treatment with a difference. It is clinically proven to kill head lice without having to watch the clock and comb after 10 minutes. You simply spray it in, style their hair and then wash it out in your normal shower when the day is over. (You can also sleep with it in overnight and wash out in the morning if that is more convenient) It doesn’t have the typical nit treatment odour, it smells great and leaves the hair soft and nourished.
As it is made with natural essential oils, botanical extracts and sounds so easy to use, I am surprised that I have not heard of it before. If you want to learn more about the Blitz Nitz Spray & Go, visit the Euky Bear website.
It can be purchased from Chemist Warehouse for $9.99. For that price, I would have a few stored away just in case. It seems like such an easy, no tears, nit treatment option.
Prize includes: Euky Bear Blitz Nitz pack – 1x Euky Bear Blitz Nitz spray & go, 1x Head lice comb, 1x Euky Bear soft toy, colour pencils & colouring book. RRP $50.
