We had our first run in with head lice this school year. Fortunately, the family and school reacted appropriately, and the infestation did not spread. With summer camp season on the horizon, the threat of lice still looms.
As a culture, we fear lice. Perhaps it is the challenge they pose in riddance, or perhaps it is the reminder that we are not as far removed from our neanderthal ancestors’ parasites as we would like to believe.
We were sent the following LiceGuard products that help you detect, destroy, remove, and prevent head lice.
LiceGuard is the only complete non-toxic lice detection-killing-prevention line on the market. The innovative and patented lice killing treatment is non-toxic, pesticide free, reusable and has been proven 100% effective.
Thankfully, we were not able to test these products:).
Robi Comb detects and destroys lice on contact simply by combing it through dry hair. When the electronic Robi Comb touches lice, they get zapped, die and are combed out of the hair.
In addition, while lice have been reported to be building up a resistance to pesticides used in other lice treatments, lice cannot become resistant to the Robi Comb treatment.

I think the combs are great products. The shampoo and repellent contain ingredients I would avoid; however, I might use them if we actually had lice and other methods, such as the olive oil treatment, in conjunction with these combs, did not work.
I hope your children don’t come home from summer camp with lice!
