As mums settle back into the school run, so begins the longstanding battle against nits. Avoiding these unpleasant mites is difficult as they pass from child to child easily, especially as play time commences. If these unwelcome guests do make an appearance all is not lost according to researchers at James Cook University in Queensland who report “Tea Tree Oil achieved and maintained a 90% kill rate over a 3 hour period” suggesting that Tea Tree oil is a natural and effective remedy in treating head lice compared to the chemical insecticides which are so commonly used.
Green People’s Organic Lavender Burst Shampoo and Conditioner contains tea tree and is perfect for sensitive scalps, try these today with £2 off for London Mums’ readers, just quote ‘londonmum’ at checkout. Hurry offer expires 31st December 2013.

This Green People customer says:
“After just one wash, no head lice in sight! I can’t believe it, small lice before washing and combed through while shampoo still in. Smells great, lathers lovely and my daughter’s hair is so shiny! Thank you for a fab product.”
