Prevent head lice with Zippity Doo’s hair products

Zippity Doo's
I’m going to talk about something that no one likes to think about. Something that moms, and dads, have a deep fear of. Head Lice. Ick! You might think since it’s summer the kids are safe because they aren’t sitting in school next to potential bearers of this nasty little critter, but did you ever think about summer camp? Sleepovers? Fitting Rooms? Ugh, it makes me cringe just to talk about it. I was pretty interested when I learned about Zippity Doo’s – a line of children’s hair care products that help to PREVENT, and repel, lice and other insects. I think prevention is SO much better than treatment in this case and I will do just about anything to keep those buggers at bay.

Zippity Doo’s offers a full line of pediatrician approved hair products that  include natural ingredients like Vitamin D, passion flower, rosemary, lavender, cinnamon, spearmint and tea tree oil to name a few. You can feel good about using it your child’s head daily and be confident you’re doing all you can to prevent an infestation.

Our View: We received four products from Zippity Doo’s, one each of Shampoo, Conditioner, Styling Gel and Shield Spray for children. Each bottle is a convenient 8.5 oz, so it would fit easily in a suitcase or just on the shower shelf. The bright colors and logo are attractive to both kids and moms and the bottles were full to the top. I don’t know if I’m partial to the scents because I love herbs or not but this is one of the best smelling shampoo/conditoner combos I’ve ever smelled! I absolutely love the fresh yet natural fragrance, it’s like taking a breathe outside in the garden. The thick green shampoo lathers up well using only a small amount and the cool gooey purple conditioner reminded us of silly putty. FUN! It went on smooth and rinsed out perfectly.

On to the Styling Gel. We liked the slightly flowery-sweet way it smelled. It’s thick but not sticky and was great for my daughter’s fly away hair. My favorite product though is the Shield Spray. With so many of my favorite herbs in it it smells just divine! I use it on both my daughter’s and my head before we go off on one our shopping trips :) We can also spray our personal belongings with it! Think backpacks, helmets, bedding, hats and hair accessories. It has a nice lemony-herby smell that reminds me of summer. All-in-all I think Zippity Doo’s is a wonderful product and something that parents should add to their arsenal. It’s so much easier (and much cheaper) to prevent the problem!

    1. I'm not going to enter this one, but I couldn't resist leaving a comment. Sounds like a great product 'cause products I've heard about in the past seemed quite icky.

      Sounds like interesting products I'd like to try on my kids. Our summer plans are to spend as much time at the campground as possible. There's lots to do there every weekend. Thanks.
