“Super Lice” Resistant to Over the Counter Chemical Treatments

In many schools, kids aren’t the only ones going back to school. It is estimated that roughly 10 million children worldwide between the ages of 3 and 11 are infected with lice annually. And recent studies report that many commercial products sold to treat lice are no longer working. The lice have built up a resistance to the chemicals.

So, what do we do? Even if the chemicals did work, there is concern over their toxicity to humans and the environment. In order to treat lice effectively, combing is a bare necessity, but Stanford’s Packard Children’s Health Services Pediatric Hotline says adding rosemary extract to our shampoo can help repel and kill lice.

Fortunately, Original Sprout’s 2-n-1 Hair & Body Wash, Natural Shampoo, and Miracle Detangler all contain Organic Rosemary and Organic Calendula. So, we use our great, moisturizing, natural shampoos on the whole family, then spritz on a little of our leave-in detangler and lice are sure to think twice about jumping into any of our lovely locks.
