The Nit Nanny Natural Lice Treatment and Target Giveaway!

There's one four letter word that I hate most of all - LICE. We have been lucky enough here (knock on every wooden surface around) to not get it. However, it has been making it's way around our elementary school. I've been pretty much over the top obsessing about it. Isabelle's hair has been up each day, coats and backpacks go directly to our unfinished basement upon arrival home, and I've been spraying the kids with lice deterrent. Oh, and I've scared the be-jesus out of the kids to not share anything or put their heads basically on any surface. They might actually end up in therapy over it one day. Sometimes it just happens though...

Per the CDC, between 6-12 million children and adults get head lice each year in the US alone, as well as up to twice that many unreported cases. Anyone who comes in head-to-head contact with someone who already has head lice is at the greatest risk. With close contact at schools, camps, and day cares, you can see why lice spreads so easily.  Girls between the ages of 3-15 have the greatest chance of getting lice (eek!), then they can easily spread throughout their family.

One adult female can lay 10 eggs (nits) a day (shudder!!) and she lives for 30 days. They feed on your scalp blood. Many people are allergic to the bites, thus causing the itching.
Over-the-counter products available today like Rid, Nix and head lice shampoos for purchase in pharmacies have become somewhat ineffective, lice have adapted and have become resistant to the treatment. The plastic combs provided in the OTC kits are also not always effective at combing out all nits and bugs.   
Many over the counter products are questionably dangerous since they contain neurotoxins and worse. Compare the ingredients of the top products to a can of Raid and killing agents in lawn chemicals to lice killing products. Is that what we want on our children's heads? That is some crazy stuff to think about.
Some home remedies are also ineffective. Smothering lice with mayonnaise and olive oil for example may not always work. Those ingredients can melt, breakdown and liquefy due to your core body temperature which then allows the lice to breathe, not killing them. Those bad boys can be so hard to kill! 
As parents we do our best to protect our kids, so reliable and good information is key.  
Lice Lifters, headquartered in Lafayette Hill Pennsylvania has come up with an all-natural and effective in-store lice treatment process as well as the Nit Nanny Line of all-natural products to take lice out of your life.
The Nit Nanny Products will end your lice problems with no harmful chemicals. From the first application, adult lice will be killed, after that you follow the treatment plan. Nit Nanny products are all natural and do not liquefy therefore smothering and killing all live activity in 10 minutes.
The Nit Nanny Lice Solution Treatment is a soothing blend of oils that quickly eliminates all stages of head lice. The 10-minute treatment is conditioning to your hair and scalp. It is safe and effective and leaves you non-contagious to others you are in contact with.
The Nit Nanny Lice and Nit Removal Comb is made of tempered steel. It has unique spiral micro-grooving that helps get underneath every egg. The long teeth can be boiled for sterilization. This comb is the best way to get rid of lice and nits as well as prevent future infestation.
The Nit Nanny Mint Spay deters lice. It is a one-step product that detangles hair and deters lice. This product can be used on wet or dry hair and as often as you would like to help repel lice. This product is made with all natural ingredients that are offensive to lice but not to humans. The Mint Detangler Spray is non-toxic, smells great and is safe for the whole family. 
Each of these products are available via Amazon, you can purchase them individually or as a kit. This is a great solution if getting into a Lice Lifters Salon is not an option.

  1. Ha! I totally get it! It came through our school when they were in 1st and 3rd, my daughters hair was down to her butt. I was terrible, weeks of combing, checking and worrying. I found out about Lice Lifters AFTER I went through it and wish I had found out before! Since then, I make the kids put their coats IN their backpacks and not on the hooks and when I hear of an issue my daughters hair goes up. Its not the worst that can happen by any means but I so never want it be around it again! Good Luck!!

  9. I have just recently heard about the Nit Nanny Products. I like that there are no harmful chemicals and it's all natural. My Granddaughters hair thinned out really bad on top of her head from using a lice shampoo from the drug store. I will be letting my daughter know about this product. Thanks

  11. Good post! My daughter was infested twice with lice from a trip with a friends family, and while riding the bus to school. Both times, I was able to get rid of it, however, I've never seen this before in my life. Lice outbreaks when I was growing up were rare. The amount of infestation today is not "normal". And yes, I was concerned about the chemicals in "RID" that I had to use on her at age 12.

  12. You hope it never happens but in case it does you have to know how to handle it because kids are exposed to other kids

  23. I'm glad there is an all-natural and effective lice treatment. As a former preschool teacher I know first hand the aggravation and mess that lice causes. The older products smell so bad and sometimes have to be repeated. Thank goodness for The Nit Nanny!
