Teangi asked 2000 parents of school aged children what they dread the most about their child's return to school. Six out of ten parents agreed that they idea of dealing with head lice was the worst implication of going back through those school gates!!!
Some of the reasons :
* Passing around to other family members
* Having to use messy treatments
I was recently sent some of Teangi's shampoo and conditioner to try.
Nikki Kerrigan, Brand Manager for Teangi says :
"Tea tree is a perfect option for head lice, as a natural insect repellant. Using a shamppo and conditioner that contain tea tree makes it and easy and convinient way to apply"
With tea tree being a natural antibacterial, a natural antiseptic and anti-fungal, it seems to be the perfect product for myself and my family as we all suffer from certain degrees of eczema and dry skin.
Both the shampoo and and conditioner were easy to apply and wash out. They cleaned the hair well and left our hair feeling wonderfully soft when dry.
The thing that my children and I noticed straight away was the smell. Although not bad, the tea tree fragrance is quite strong when you open the bottle however the fragrance decreases when used on the hair.
I have also been using the spray in conditioner on the girls hair each morning when putting it up, certainly makes their hair easier to comb through, making the task a lot less stressful for all of us.
The shampoo costs £3.85 and the conditioner costs £3.45, which seems a tad expensive especially when I normally pay £2 altogether for my shampoo and conditioner.
However, fingers crossed/touch wood, we have had no incidences of head lice since the girls returned to school and I would be happy to continue paying a higher price tag if it kept the pesky critters at bay.
