It just fills me with dread. I never had them as a child and I don’t know why, but I think any child under, say five, is just too young for horrible little creatures to be living on. I’m sure the nits aren’t so fussy about the age of the recipient but you know what I mean.
So when I was asked to become an official Deputy Sheriff for Vamousse (yes really, I have a badge and everything), I jumped on my horse quicker than you could say yee-hah.
Vamousse has a brilliant range of products for tackling those pesky critters once they move in but I can’t stand the thought of sitting there and waiting for them to appear.
It seems Vamousse were on the same wavelength so have come up with a protective shampoo. Yay.
There are a lot of urban myths surrounding headlice. I was under the impression they didn’t like dirty hair so, when the letter went round at nursery last year about an infestation, I am not going to lie, I did not wash Boo’s hair for two weeks. I know.
Apparently though this is not the case and here are a few other misconceptions you might have…
A head lice infestation takes time to develop. In its early days an infestation consists of young lice (nymphs) that are too small to be seen by the naked eye and eggs that do not cause symptoms such as itching/a crawling sensation.
To stop an infestation taking hold both adult lice and, later hatching lice (nymphs) emerging from eggs need to be killed, thereby breaking the cycle of infestation.
I am not taking the chance. Boo is getting doused in the protection shampoo at every bath time from now on.
Can you take that chance?
Thankfully, I have a brilliant competition for you to win a Vamousse set of shampoo and mousse and a turban-style towel.

Please note I have been scratching my head for the whole of this review.
