Head Lice - It's No Fairy Tale

An estimated 12 million cases of head lice are reported each year. The key to keeping lice at bay is PREVENTION. But harsh chemicals and pesticides can harm your little one’s hair and health. New Jersey based Fairy tales Hair Care has found an all natural solution to keeping these pesky critters away.
If your child has ever had head lice, you know once is more than enough. And, if you have managed to escape the ordeal, count yourself lucky. Consumer Reports magazine cites 12 million documented cases of head lice each year.
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.
