I know nobody wants to even think about this. Maybe just the mention of lice makes your head crawl.
But, speaking from experience, if you're one of the lucky ones to find a louse in your kid's hair at 8 p.m., you don't want to be rushing to the store to buy treatment. You want to be starting that treatment right away.
I featured the local mom behind the development of Vamousse, a new lice treatment and preventative shampoo, in May.
The non-toxic, pesticide-free lice treatment promises to kill 100 percent of both the lice and the eggs in 15 minutes, no nit picking required. The shampoo kills just the lice. It's designed for siblings, friends, teammates or classmates of those with a lice infestation.
I heard from more than one mom, who told me they went straight to Wal-Mart or Amazon.com to buy a bottle or two ... just to be ready, after reading that post.
We are giving away bottles of both the treatment and shampoo so some lucky winners can be prepared too and then pray they never need to use it.
