About Lice Repellent & Nit Defense
Head lice are a wide-spread concern among school-age children. In fact, these unwanted pests affect more than 12 million kids in the U.S. each year. The most common way lice are transmitted is through direct head-to-head contact while kids are at play during school, sleep-overs and play dates. And while lice can happen to anyone, regardless of personal hygiene and home cleanliness, most parents would like to avoid having to treat an infestation.
Parents often find out about lice exposure through a letter home from the school or a phone call from a playmate’s parent. By this point, a child may have already been infested and require treatment with Vamousse Lice Treatment. So what step can a family take to help prevent lice before a risk of exposure is even known?
Vamousse Lice Repellent & Nit Defense: Your first defense against head lice
Vamousse Lice Repellent & Nit Defense was designed as a proactive step against lice, even before you receive the letter or phone call. It wards off an infestation by repelling lice, including super lice, and deterring them from even laying eggs.
A safe and non-toxic spray made with essential oil, Vamousse Lice Repellent & Nit Defense is easy to apply daily as part of your regular hair care routine. The light scent disappears quickly once dry, leaving hair soft and manageable. And like all Vamousse products, it’s free of synthetic pesticides. Vamousse Lice Repellent & Nit Spray is great for use:

How it Works

A thorough spray of Vamousse Lice Repellent & Nit Defense on dry hair provides eight hours of lice repellency.

And it’s scientifically proven to deter lice from laying eggs, effectively breaking the life cycle.
How to Use
Vamousse Lice Repellent & Nit Defense can be used daily as a final step in your hair care routine. Apply spray to dry hair, covering the entire head thoroughly. Pay particular attention to the areas behind the ears, at the nape of the neck and crown of the head, as lice often like to gather here. Allow hair to dry; do not rinse. The light scent disappears quickly once the spray has dried. Vamousse Lice Repellent & Nit Defense may be reapplied as needed.
