We see cases of lice weekly. The funny thing is it comes in waves. Right after a school holiday it hits hard. Families that have been on air planes or in another country pick up lice. The bottom line is your child's head needs to be "nit free" before they are with others or go to school. "Nit free" means all of the egg sacs are gone-completely gone. It requires a long video and sitting down with a nit comb, a wet paper towel and combing and inspecting every strand of hair.
Here are some simple tips:
1. Do not confuse flakes and dandruff with nits. Nits will not flake off. They must be loosened from the hair with your fingernails and pulled down the hair shaft.
2. Most lice killing products are pesticides. Very bad for anyone. We recommend Fairy Tale Hair Care Products.
3. Wash bedding and recently worn clothing in hot water and dry in hot dryer. Combs and brushes need to be soaked in hot water.
4. Vacuum furniture, carpets, and car seats.
5. If one family member gets it then check everyone else or better yet give a treatment.
6. Lice do not like clean hair so do not go overboard on washing.
TREATMENT: Fairy Tales Hair Care Products
We love this line. A non toxic, pesticide free enzyme based product.
1. Lice Good-bye Shampoo
2. Lice Good-bye Conditioner
3. Lice Good-bye conditioning spray (we have our kids use this daily. Adds protection from lice outbreaks)
4. Lice Good-bye Mousse (This dissolves the nit "glue" and helps more easily remove the lice and nits.
All available at Lily's Pampering Salon & Party Boutique!

Makeup styles for teens have changed somewhat since I was a teen, but the premise is still the same; wear makeup to enhance your beauty and make you feel more polished, put together and, thus, more confident. If you're a teen and are looking for some great makeup tips, read on:
Buy good products. This is the first rule for a reason. Sure, you could go to the local pharmacy and buy cheap makeup, but at what cost? Cheap makeup cakes and dries, has a short shelf life, and won't glide onto your skin. Invest a little more money for a good product, made of quality ingredients, that will be beneficial for your skin health. Years later, you'll be glad that you took care of your skin while you were still young.
Foundation. Unless you have severe scarring and pock marks from acne that you need to cover, you won't need to wear foundation. Since a teenager's skin is still elastic and fresh, it already has a healthy glow. Steer clear of foundation and, instead, opt for a lightweight mineral powder and an under-eye concealer to cover blemishes and eye circles.
Blush. Choose a bright blush and apply it with a wide brush. If you have very fair skin, choose pink or tones of pink. If your skin is olive or dark, choose shades of light bronze or red. Start with just a little blush on your brush, smile, and apply it to the apples of your cheeks, sweeping it back towards your temples. A little goes a long way, so go easy.
Eyes. While you could choose to apply dark and heavy eye shadow and liner, you will simply end up looking harsh and hard. Makeup is meant to enhance your natural features, not cover them entirely. Instead, use soft hues to enhance your eyes. If you've blue eyes, use colors from the cool palette, such as plum, pink, blue, and ivory. Brown- and green-eyed teens should use warm tones such as copper, brown, ivory, and green. Sweep a lighter shade on your eyelid and just under your eyebrow, and a darker shade in the crease. Complete the look with a light smudge of coordinating eyeliner halfway across your upper lid.
Lips. All you need for your lips is a sheer gloss with a little color. You can find tinted lip balms in any grocery store or the makeup isle of your pharmacy. If you want the emphasis to be on your eyes, choose a light color for your lips.
One of the worst mistakes a teen can make is to pluck her eyebrows too much. Eyebrows will cease to grow if they are plucked too often. Instead of over-plucking, simply pluck a little in the area at the brow bone, and always pluck from underneath—never above—the brow. If your eyebrows are sparse, you can use eyebrow corrector to fill in areas where hair should be.
The most important thing to remember about teen makeup styles is that less is more, and that maeup is meant to enhance, and not to cover up.

Once thought to stem from poor sanitary habits, having lice no longer holds the shame it once did but is still a major hassle for families, and no child is exempt. Encouraging your child not to share brushes, combs, hats or sports helmets can’t hurt, but it won’t necessarily protect them from a lice outbreak. And, the situation is worsening as these bugs become resistant to over-the-counter treatments.
Prevention is the best solution. Fairytales Hair Care has created an all-natural, organic children’s hair care line that has been shown to repel lice. The three-tiered system of Fairy Tales Rosemary Repel Shampoo, Crème Conditioner and Leave-in Spray, layers hair with oils of rosemary, lavender, tea tree, lemongrass, geranium and citronella.
Ciofalo says these very ingredients have been used as far back as the Crusades to create a barrier of protection on the hair.
