I don’t know about you but lice is so prevalent around this time of year in the school system. Just this week, both of my kid received letters at home that there were kids in their classrooms who had lice. Freak out time starts…
Rumor has it that the child stars of the hit Broadway Musical Matilda had an outbreak of lice with at least six of the sixteen kids being plagued by the little buggers.
“Kids are more prone to getting lice when they’re around each other all day at places like summer camp, but it can really happen at any time,” Cozy Friedman, a mom of two, hairstylist and founder of SoCozy, the first ever children’s salon hair care brand. “That doesn’t mean it has to happen to you and your kids!”
To help prevent lice, Cozy recommends educating children on the ways in which lice is contracted like sharing pillows, hats, and combs. Then commit to lice prevention with SoCozy’s BOO! Lice Prevention Shampoo and Conditioning Spray. She recommends to use daily to scare those critters away- naturally! The only line of its kind, Boo! contains invigorating tea tree oil, one of the most effective natural ingredients demonstrated to prevent lice.
