Camp season is approaching and children will be playing head to head all summer. It is important to communicate when your child has lice and to actively check your children when they don’t have lice. Informing others prevents families in close contact from spreading it back and forth. Finding lice early is the key to easy removal. “Once a week, take a peek” Fairy LiceMothers says a quick ten-minute weekly comb-out with the MagicWand and MagicHalo Conditioner will prevent a larger infestation. Watch our comb-out video to learn how to check your children www.fairylicemothers.com/lice_treatment.html.
