Got lice?! Prevent the infestation before it begins with the Zippity Doos Hair Care line.
Oh, if you’ve experienced these pesky boogers my heart goes out to you. Kiddos just bring everything home sometimes.
Thankfully, we don’t have lice. We’ve been fortunate. I remember years ago, my cousin had lice. They went to get his hair cut and sent him home–long hair, lice and all. From that moment Charlotte the Great went a tad crazy. Every morning I would go down for coffee and conversation and the woman was pulling covers off of cushions to wash, scrubbing the carpet, and washing sheets. MONTHS later, long after the lice left, she was STILL in this same routine.
I was recently introduced to a product line that I believe will exterminate lice. Zippity Doos is a natural product designed for children. It’s gentle enough to use everyday and in doing so you are “shielding” your children from a back-packing louse!
We reviewed the entire line of products and with each use, I’m loving it more and more.
The line starts with a natural shampoo. It promotes a healthy scalp and hair while preventing the infestation of head lice. Normally, my children are little devils when it comes to hair washing. As soon as I let them smell the shampoo, they agreed they would let me wash their hair without argument. It has a spearmint smell that they were loving.
I was really surprised at how quickly and well the shampoo lathered up. I’ve experienced natural shampoos in the past and it took gobs to get suds. With Zippity Doos I used slightly more than a pea-sized amount and we had super suds!
Zippity Doos also is unique in that you don’t have to let it “sit” on the hair for any period of time before rinsing. You just wet hair, add shampoo, rinse.
The second line of defense in your shield against lice is the Zippity Doos Conditioner. It smells just as good as the shampoo! My six-year-old was taking deep “sniffs” and exclaiming, “This stuff smells soooo good.”
This conditioner has a nice texture.
The six year old has super fine hair, so I was concerned the conditioner would weigh it down and leave her hair looking stringy. SO many conditioners do this to her. Her hair looked great and had some va-va-volume!
What do my girls hate more than the hair washing? Getting their hair combed out! We used the Zippity Doos Leave-In Detangler for Children and it was a home-run. It squirts a fine mist over the hair, that leaves hair easily combable and helps prevent lice. Again, they loved the smell and I loved the conversation, rather than shrieks. The tangles we encountered were easily removed with this detangler.
Li’l Man was not to be left out. He got to try the Zippity Doos Gel. This gave a good hold to his “punk” hairdo and at the end of the day, his hair was still in place, soft and without the yucky flakes. The Zippity Doos Gel is made from natural ingredients and does not contain alcohol.
Quite possibly my favorite item in the Zippity Doos line is the Shield Spray. This spray can be used on the hair, but it also can be used on things like hats, backpacks, bedding, pillows, hair brushes and toys. No hitch-hiking lice with this stuff! It has a pleasant scent and is easy to use.
The Zippity Doos Hair Care Line is made from natural and organic ingredients and that’s something I believe in. I love my kiddos and don’t want to pollute them with harsh chemicals. The products are gentle enough to use everyday and don’t smell like “medicine”. They fit into a daily routine without interruption. Most importantly they help prevent lice invasion in your home.
