If you have a child in elementary school, you have probably had some kind exposure to lice- whether a full blown case of lice or just a story of lice going around the school. Getting head lice is not prevented by just washing your hair. I was shocked when I heard there were cases of lice at my children’s elementary school but lice can strike anywhere that there is head to head contact such as often occurs with school kids during play. In fact, according to the CDC, an estimated 6 million to 12 million infestations occur each year in the United States among children 3 to 11 years of age. If you want to take active measures to prevent lice naturally, I have a few suggestions for you.

3 Ways To Prevent Lice Naturally
1. Don’t share hair accessories.
Stop lice from traveling from one child to the next. Tell your children not to share brushes or combs with other people. Girls should not share hairbands and boys should not share hats.Keep hair tied back.
2. Keep hair tied back.
Lice travel by crawling from head to head. Keep hair tied back in a bun, braid, or ponytail to try to minimize chances of lice crawling aboard.
3. Use Po-Lice hairbands.
Po-Lice hiarbands are an innovative, practical and effective way to repel lice. The high quality elastic Po-Lice hairbands contain a powerful natural formula of essential oils and are proven to repel lice for up to 2 weeks.
Prevent Lice Naturally With Po-Lice Hairbands
Po-Lice™ bands are so easy to buy and wear that they can be the “just in case” hairband. Your child probably wears hairbands anyway so why not use Po-Lice hairbands to repel lice. Lice are so nasty and avoiding lice is a huge blessing.
Po-Lice hairbands are sold in boxes that come with 8 individually wrapped hairbands. Each hairband can repel lice for up to 2 weeks so one box could last you up to 4 months (of course, it will last you less long if you are wearing more than one at once). There are four different colors of hairbands in each box and they are high quality no tear bands.
My daughter and I both love the smell of the Po-Lice hairbands (mostly of rosemary, tea tree, and peppermint). The bands are nice and thick and they hold lots of hair or wrap several times around smaller amounts of hair which is great for both hair types. Po-Lice is lice prevention made easy! Po-Lice is available for purchase on the following e-commerce sites:
Rosemary Leaf Oil, Tea Tree Leaf Oil, Peppermint Oil, Critonella Oil, Matricaria Flower Extract, Sage Leaf Extract, Lavender Oil, Fennel Oil
I like Po-Lice because they are always useful, they smell great, and they are an easy precaution to take to prevent lice naturally. I sure do see the benefit of buying Po-Lice hair bands instead of regular hair bands for the extra benefit of protecting my children and myself from such a common problem as lice. Do you?
