Back to Basics for Treatment of Lice
by Camille Merian, founder of CloseNitFamily
Lice are a year-round problem, any time children are together, it's an opportunity for lice to spread.
It has been said that kids with close friends get LICE. Schools, fall sports and after school activities provide fantastic learning and memories; however, you can see how easy it would be to share even the peskiest gift of all without knowing it.
People are striving for a healthy lifestyle, eating organically to minimize pesticides yet ironically, at the first sign of lice; parents douse the most porous part of a child’s body (the head) with toxic chemicals that simply don’t work. Over time, lice have built up an immunity to these products and are showing signs of resistance. Lice removal takes a good comb, lots of patience, lots of time and lots of time
following a strand-by-strand method. Preventative care at home- simple step to take, if your child has long hair, pull it back in a ponytail, then practice “taking a peek once a week,” remember to use a good lice comb.
Finally, if your family has head lice, don’t be embarrassed, be a friend & tell a friend. Spread the word...not the nits.
