I have loved the lazy breakfasts, PJ days, fun outings and playing with my little tribe these school holidays but all good things come to an end and it’s back to school for my babies. On the last day of term the twins brought home yet another one of those dreaded notes no parent likes to read: ‘A case of head lice has been reported in your child’s class…’
So far our family has never been visited by head lice (knocks on wood!) but that doesn’t stop me from feeling itchy and scratching all over at the thought of it. We have had several of these notes this year already and I am sure this won’t be the last one either.
I am a firm believer in prevention is better than cure, so I would rather take some easy measures to keep those creepy crawlers far away. I already make sure my girls’ hair is always up and tightly plaited and now I am also adding an extra line of defence with Po-Lice hair bands, head lice are not welcome here! These clever hair ties contain a natural and safe formula that is pesticide-free, non-toxic and leaves no residue, defending your child’s hair the gentle way.
Using a special combination of natural ingredients like tee tree oil, peppermint oil, lavender oil and more Po-Lice Hair Bands (ages 3+) effectively deter nasty head lice without the need for special sprays or shampoos. My girls love the subtle smell and this naturally fragrant mix is much more pleasant than an ordinary spray of tea tree oil like I used to do. It is great peace of mind knowing my kids are well protected just in case there are head lice lurking around the class room.
One Po-Lice hair band offers up to 2 weeks of protection so it’s an easy and convenient solution to an itchy school problem. Po-Lice hair bands are available in handy 2-month (4 hair ties), 4-month (8 hair ties), 8-month (16 hair ties) or 12-month (24 hair ties) packs with prices starting at $15.95. Each coloured hair tie is individually wrapped so you can use as needed and they come in a range of fun colours to suit your child’s outfit or occasion.
