Primary school children and head lice! Unfortunately they just go hand in hand. It’s every parents dread finding that note inside the school backpack to say ‘please check your kids hair, there are head lice going around the school’. Arghhh! Head lice! I can’t even say the word without wanting to scratch my head.
When I was in primary school I remember mum giving my sisters and I head lice treatment at least 3 times during each school term. The first treatment was always followed by a second dose and then another a week later a third to make sure all of the eggs were smothered and I can still remember that awful chemical smell.
Last year I received that dreaded head lice note. So without hesitation I went straight to the pharmacy to start comparing the huge amount of products available to kill these little parasites that were sucking the blood out of my kids scalp! The reality for me was that I also had to do all 3 children which included my then 12 month old baby boy.
So when the V-Comb past my desk a couple of weeks ago I was very, very excited.
In a nutshell, a Perth man has invented a hand held device that is simple to use and essentially combs the hair and vacuums out head lice and the eggs. The incredibly contagious head lice can be eliminated using this chemical free comb. This man is a genius!
The V-Comb enables you to check your children’s hair as often as you like in a non-invasive easy manner for peace of mind. The V-Comb has a bright LED light that illuminates the capture filter allowing you to easily see what is being removed from the hair.
It’s a chemical free, cost effective way to treat your whole family and I can now highly recommend it.
Hey V-Comb; where were you last year when I needed you? I’m so happy that there will be no more chemical filled treatments for my babies. It will be V-Comb all the way!
