Giveaway: FairyTales Hair Care Lice Kit (Keep Handy for When it is REALLY Needed)

Back 2 School Giveaway!

If you have kids in school, you know how it feels when you get “the note.”  Which note is that?   The one that informs you that there has been a case of head lice reported in your child’s classroom.  Or, worse yet, you get the phone call to come up and pick up your child as he or she has already been infected with lice.  UGH.

Dealing with lice is difficult.  There are so many treatment methods out there from olive oil to mayonnaise.  And, it isn’t just heads you have to treat, you have to wash bedding, place stuffed animals into plastic bags and clean…..the list goes on and on.  Isn’t there anything you can do to prevent your child from bringing home these little pests?  Yep!  There is!

Fairy Tales Hair Care offers several natural products you can use on your own kids to help prevent or even eliminate lice and their eggs.  They offer Rosemary Repel, which is a shampoo you can use daily, which can help keep lice from even attaching to your child’s head.  If it is too late and your child already has a case, you can use their Lice Good-Bye and safely eliminate lice and their eggs — naturally!  Yes — naturally!

Sure, there are many items you can find in the store to help if you have to deal with this issue.  However, those are all filled with horrible chemicals.  Chemicals I sure don’t want to put onto my kids’ heads!  When we had a chance to try this product ourselves, I first and foremost loved the fact that it was natural.  That gave me peace of mind to know that what I was putting onto my child’s head was safe.

We actually tried the Rosemary Repel Conditioning Spray.  What I love about this is that we just spray it on after we comb their hair in the morning and it is like “an invisible force field” to help repel lice, should a case pop up in my children’s classrooms.  It smelled great and left no horrible residue either — which was an added perk.

It seems that we always are reactive rather than proactive when it comes to this common childhood pest.  Fairy Tales Hair Care can help you prevent it from happening to you in the first place!  You can learn more about this product on their website.

Lice Good-Bye Survival Kit ($29.99 value)
Rosemary Repel Shampoo ($12.95 value)

Personalized Etched Copper Football Necklace | www.pennypinchinmom.com

If my son played football, I would have one of these in a heartbeat.  Check out these adorable handmade Personalized Etched Copper Football Necklaces! They have an estimated delivery date of Sept 10th – which is still in time for football season! Grab one today while it’s just $19.99 shipped!

This necklace is chemically etched into the shape and design of a football and hand stamped with any name and jersey number. Each necklace includes an 18″ cable chain.

Because each piece is hand-stamped by me, there could be slight variations in the spacing and placement of each letter stamp. These are not flaws, but simply a unique feature of hand-stamped jewelry.
