Treating Head lice

Treating head lice can be expensive but it doesn’t have to be.


Bodycare in the Westfield Centre sell a lice busting lotion that is absolutely effective, it’s got all natural ingredients so it shouldn’t harm your child’s skin.  This lotion is great to use for all the family, it is alright to use for children as young as 6 months (always read labels). The lotion is sold at £2.49 – amazing value and it works!!!


Home Bargains sell a Lice Repellent leave- in spray, which has tea tree in it for £1.29 – very good for using after and during treatments.

They also sell a head lice Repellent Shampoo for 89p – yes pence!!!

These treatments will work if you use them often and everyone uses them.


It is also important to remember to wash pillows, bedding, hats and coats with hoods that the child has been wearing and check every family member’s hair so that you can prevent spreading the lice.  Always inform the Class Teacher when you have had to treat your child’s hair.
