Prevent Head Lice: Rosemary Repel Conditioning Spray
Over the summer there was a lice scare at my children’s camp. One kid was kept at home all week long. Thank goodness mine weren’t affected. Then soon after Fairy Tales contacted me and asked me if I wanted to sample one of their products. They sent me the Rosemary Repel Conditioning Spray.
Its mission is to soften, detangle and eliminate frizz. Ingredients include organic herbs of rosemary, citronella, peppermint, tea tree and lavender. You can use daily and there’s no pesticides, harsh chemicals or toxins. Formulated without dairy, nut oil, soy and gluten.
THE TEST: I used it on my son and daughter and both didn’t balk at it being sprayed on. However – everyone agreed the smell isn’t so great. That’s the only thing – it smooths the hair out but I just wish the scent was more pleasant. Perhaps the Rosemary Repel Shampoo and Rosemary Repel Creme Conditioner are better smelling?

A recent survey by Fairy Tales Hair Care found that while 93% of parents teach their children the basic prevention tips such as not sharing hats, helmets, brushes and combs, only 56% of parents do a weekly head check.
Studies have shown that a pro-active check for lice and their eggs in “hot spots” can help to minimize a lice outbreak. Lice lay eggs (nits) in warm, moist areas around the head. These include behind ears, nape of the neck and at the part lines. By checking these areas with a metal comb designed to remove nits, parents can stay ahead of an outbreak. Lice expert and founder of Fairy Tales Hair Care Risa Barash, recommends the Fairy Tales Terminator Comb as the stainless steel, micro-grooved teeth are gentle on the scalp and catch the smallest of nits.
To assist parents, Fairy Tales Hair Care, makers of the bestselling Rosemary Repel lice prevention products, created a short video showing where to look, how to spot a louse or a nit and easy tips to learn the best method for combing during an outbreak.
