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.
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!
