We all know that kids are the often carriers of head lice. They usually get lice at school when they had contact with an infested child.
Treating head lice specially on children should be safe and gentle yet effective. If possible you should use a lice treatment made from natural ingredients.
Treatment shouldn’t be complicated. We recommend you to use a homeopathic lice treatment.
Mother was thinking of shaving daughter's hair due to frustration
A mother confessed that she already thought of shaving her daughter’s head out of frustration after several failed attempts of treating it.
She thought shaving is the only solution left to beat the problem.
The little child named Poppy, 6 years old, had been receiving different kinds of treatment from her mother Joanne Hedges, 30, from Hampshire.
Poppy being a kid has been frustrated and unhappy as well. She was unhappy with constant itching as well as sitting for long period of hours just to have her hair brushed through with a nit comb.
‘After three weeks, I was at my wits end and I was thinking, ‘I’m going to have to shave off all her lovely hair if this carries on’,’ mother-of-three Joanne recalled. ‘I felt helpless.’

School shaved a student's head without mom's permission
A mom from Massachusetts said her 7 year old daughter had her head shaved without her permission.
Denise Robinson’s daughter Tru’s head was shaved by Little Heroes Group Home in Dracut. Robinson said her daughter had her hair down her back before and was told the decision was made because of hygiene.
“There was no hygenical reason for them to shave my child’s head. There was no head lice. There was no bed bugs. There was no, what I refer to as, rasta locks going on,” Robinson, who is now working with a lawyer, told station NECN. “Her hair was two pony tails on the side on Saturday and it was braided in the ponytails and there was nothing wrong.”
