Head Lice Treatment And Prevention Tips

Like any medication, with head lice treatments it’s important to read the instructions to get the most out of your treatment.

Head Lice have a life cycle that lasts up to 21 days, so it’s really important that parents treat an infested child as directed to break the cycle and kill all lice and eggs effectively.

Prevention tips

  • Lice can’t fly or jump. They transfer by direct head-to-head contact, so school kids are advised to avoid swapping hats in the playground
  • Long hair should be tied back in pigtails or a pony tail.This makes it harder for the lice to get access to the hair and don't allow children to share hairbrushes
  • Chat to other mums about head lice and do a quick check of the hair every night if you can. The quicker you get on top of an infestation the easier it will be to clear it
  • Defend when you know Head Lice are about.Prevention is better than cure. MOOV Head Lice Defence can help you defend against head lice

Treatment tips

  • Choose natural pesticides as the scientific evidence shows that head lice are building up resistance to many synthetic pesticides
  • Follow ALL the instructions on the pack. Head Lice can be very frustrating, but this frustration can be compounded if the instructions aren’t followed carefully
  • Look for a treatment type that suits. MOOV offers three different types of treatment so you should be able to find a product that works for your whole family

Great product! After going through a fair bit of the home remedies to keep the nits at bay nothing seemed to be working and a lot of it damaged my girls’ hair. I used this and their hair is back to how it used to be and finally we have gone more than a week without head lice :)) Thanks for a great product!
