(ENDED) Prevent Head Lice and Bed Bugs: Zippity Doo's Gift Set Review & Giveaway (Ends 11/07)

Zippity Doo's

"In August, the American Academy of Pediatrics' Council on School Health produced its first report on head lice since 2002. The updated document noted increasing patterns of resistance among lice to over-the-counter products designed to kill them and their eggs. Although lice never disappeared in the United States, their prevalence was once so low - because of widespread DDT use until its 1972 ban - that many children growing up during the Baby Boom had no concept of head lice outbreaks."

When I went to school back in the 1980's we had head lice checks every year. It was a painless process because the nurse would weed out the infected students, send them home with some sort of shampoo, and the student would be back within 3-4 days. Now, head lice are on the rise and they are hardier and harder to fight. Don't wait until it is too late! Prevent head lice instead of treating head lice! Use Zippity Doo's to get the job done!

Zippity Doo's

No one in our family has ever had head lice or bed bugs. We've been pretty vigilant about stay on top of these sort of problems. When we travel, we always check out the room before opening up our suitcases and laying on the bed. We check mattress seams, behind headboards and in couches and chairs. We don't use the hotel pillows or pillowcases anymore! It's better to be safe than sorry!

Zippity Doo's offers 5 products to help prevent head lice / bed bugs: Shampoo, Conditioner, Leave-In Detangler, Styling Gel, and Shield Spray. I've been using the shield spray when I travel or when I stay overnight in a hotel. I really like the smell of the product. It is made with a special combination of natural ingredients, including Rosemary, Citronella Oil, Tea Tree Oil, and Aloe to provide added protection from lice & other insect infestation on surfaces, including hair. I actually find all of the Zippity Doo's products pleasant smelling and very effective. No lice or bed bugs in this family yet!

We don't really travel much. However to prevent it I never let my kids share their brush/comb with non family members and I do not let them participate in the school/boys n girls club checks. Never fails when they do at least 1 comes home with lice.

I check them weekly here at home.

I never thought of it as a way to avoid bugs, but we use our own pillow cases. Our biggest source of lice danger is daycare so this product would be helpful for this unavoidable danger.

When we travel before we put any luggage in the hotel room. We check the headboard and mattress for signs of bedbugs. We also try and stay away from those with lice and I remind the kids to try and keep their coats..etc away from the others.
