We’ve all suffered the horror of headlice. It’s downright miserable, but a very clever mum has come across an ingenious hack to banish the critters for good.
In a Facebook post, Jess Proctor, from Stockton-on-Tees in Durham, had a lot to say about Schwarzkopf’s Gliss Express Hair Repair conditioner.
‘Anyone whose kids keep getting headlice, I recommend using this,’ Jess said.
‘You blow dry it into the hair once it has been washed (don’t let hair dry naturally as it won’t work), it makes hair so soft that headlice cannot cling to it.
Jess then went on to reveal that her very own hairdresser, Amanda Birch of Topper’s Hair Design, was the genius who recommended it.
Packed with keratin, a structural protein that coats the hair in a shiny protective layer, Jess said that she has been using the ‘miracle’ cure ever since she found the nits lurking in her daughter’s hair six months ago.
Lice are a common problem, especially among young children.
General symptoms include everything from allergic reactions to the louse saliva, itching, redness, pink eye and in some cases, swollen lymph nodes or glands.
Aside from the hack and over the counter medicines, other home remedies range from wet combing the hair to treating the scalp with essential oils: tea tree, anise, ylang ylang, eucalptus and lavender to name a few.
Responding to Jess’s post, several Facebook users rejoiced with one saying: ‘I have been using this on my girls for years and they don’t get it. It’s amazing.’
The best part is that the conditioner sells for a measly £2, a lovely £8 less than other traditional topical treatments on the market.
