BIG NEWS FOR CURLY-Q™: Introducing 32oz Liter BottlesSHOP NOW


We have head lice. Help!

Q. How long do I need to treat hair that has lice?

A. We recommend you treat the individual with 1-2 applications the first day and then 1 time the next day. You can use the Lice Good-Bye® as many times as necessary until all the nits are gone. For the next two weeks, keep checking and combing through to see if you’ve missed any nits. Nits are very small and hard to find – be diligent and keep combing!

How do we prevent head lice?

Q.What should I do to prevent head lice?

A. Using Rosemary Repel® Hair Care everyday is the perfect way to help prevent head lice. We recommend shampooing every few days and using our Rosemary Repel® Leave-In Conditioning Spray every day before school, camp or daycare. Our products are proven to help prevent head lice.

Q. What is in your products that help prevent head lice?

A. We use organic herbs of rosemary, citronella, tea tree and lavender combined with vitamins and minerals to deep clean, condition and most importantly protect our children from head lice. Lice do not like the smell of these herbs and therefore, stay away from hair coated in them. That is why we always say, “A spray a day keeps the lice away!”

Q. Do I need to use all the products every day?

A. You don’t need to shampoo and condition every day – lice like clean hair. It’s easier to attach to a clean hair shaft than a dirty one. However, we do recommend using the Rosemary Repel® Leave-In Conditioning Spray along with the Gel or Hair Spray each day to add a fresh layer of fragrance on the hair before school.

Q: Do all of the Fairy Tales products prevent head lice?

A: No, only the ones that are specifically marked, Rosemary Repel®. Any products with a red cap are our Rosemary Repel® line products. CLICK HERE to see instructions on how to use Rosemary Repel® Hair Care to prevent head lice.
