Nits are the Pits.
How to treat them with Vamousse Head Lice Treatment.
Dear mummy last week, I started scratching my head. I had a really dry and flaky scalp, I refused to wear hats and didn’t like anyone brushing my hair. My folks originally thought a change of shampoo had caused this problem.
It wasn’t until Grandma noticed (while I was sat on her lap) that I had little creatures running around in my hair! Urgh! Yuk! I had NITS!!!!
My daddy rushed up to Sainsbury’s where the pharmacist assistant recommended a bottle of Vamousse Head Lice Treatment along with a couple of other types of treatment. In its bright red (danger) bottle and stark claims “Kills 100% of Lice & Eggs in 15 Minutes Kills Super Lice (Lice that are resistant to other treatments)” he was suitably impressed and bought it.
By the time he got back home all off us were itching!! Even Uncle Ben on the sofa (who’d just arrived at the N.I.T scene) was scratching his head!!
All of us itching to get this mousse on my hair and try to kill the little buggers.
Vamousse Head Lice Treatment is a Non-Toxic, Pesticide-Free easy to use mousse application. You just massage it onto the scalp. It smells pretty grim and filled the house with a weird smell. But I didn’t mind having it applied to my hair, while I sat on daddy’s lap watching a bit of telly. We drapped an old towel over my shoulders to catch any fallen lice and eggs.
Apparently “One application of Vamousse Head Lice Treatment is proven to kill 100% of lice and eggs, in just 15 minutes.” So we waited 15 minutes then headed upstairs for my bath.
One louse even jumped on daddy jumper! So he treated his scalp and beard too, just to be safe!!
Included in the box is a Steel Lice Comb which is super effective, safe and fast. So while I was happily splashing about in the bath daddy sat with me and combed my hair. It was grim….the eggs and the lice got caught up in the comb. They were ALL dead!! Even the ones that seemed glued to my hair follicle just peeled away when my mummy used her nails and a tissue.
One use and it worked. Most people will clear them all on the first or second comb through, especially if the infestation is caught early and the hair is less thick and long. I’ve got really short, fine hair so this worked a treat for me!
What to do if your child gets head lice:
Day 1 – Comb the head thoroughly with a Steel Lice Comb in sections removing all the live lice and as many eggs as you can see. The eggs you should be concerned about are the darker coloured oval shapes near the root. The white ones are empty shells. If you’re combing thoroughly you’ll be removing any that are large enough to move to another head so they won’t infect other children.
Apply the Vamousse Head Lice Treatment to scalp and hair, comb through. After 15 minutes wash out and comb through with the Steel Lice Comb removing as much of the lice and eggs you can see.
We also washed clothes, bed sheets, pillows and hats and teddies in my cot.
Day 3 – Inspect the scalp (we felt like monkeys doing this to each other!) section the hair and comb through the hair with a nit comb. To remove deadlings and see if any have reappeared. Luckily for us one treatment of Vamousse Head Lice Treatment did the job!
Day 6 – Repeat and continue for at least another week. If you spot any live ones or eggs use the Vamousse Head Lice Treatment again. By this time you should only be removing new hatchlings. If you get them all before they have chance to reproduce you will have solved the problem.
The eggs take a week or more to hatch then another ten days or so to become mature enough to lay eggs of their own. If you catch them in that time you have broken the cycle. They look like little black dots and can collect at the map of the neck and behind the ears.
Vamousse also produce Vamousse Preventative Shampoo which we’ve yet to try. It is specifically formulated for every-day use at times of high-risk which is great to help avoid re-infestation or for parents who’ve received the head lice letter from school or nursery who want to protect against infestation.
My mummy’s itching just writing this!
We found that Vamousse Head Lice Treatment lived up to its claims and we were pleasantly surprised that it worked with one treatment. But we were thorough with it, spending at least two hours treating and combing out the nit and eggs.
It worked great for us as I have thin, whispy blonde hair so they were easy to spot too which helped with extraction with the Steel Nit Comb. Vamousse Head Lice Treatment is £14.99 and you can pick it up from Boots, Sainsbury’s and Tescos.
All in all a good product for us and we will be using it again. (Hopefully not too soon though!)
