Well done - I've contacted you by email or twitter !


This time last year, we received some Vosene headlice-repellent 3-in-1 shampoo to review (a review you can read here) and we've been using it pretty much ever since. Not only the girls - despite having long thick hair and having had numerous infestations in their classes - have failed to bring home a single unwanted guest, they also love the zesty smell and it leaves their hair lovely and clean and tangle-free.

But don't just take my word for it ! The lovely people at Vosene have 20 samples to give away to readers of my blog so that they can try it out for themselves.

To be entered into the draw, just follow my blog (see google friends connect over on the right) and leave me a comment with a way of contacting you via twitter or email. It would be great to hear your tried and tested (or just plain crazy !) methods for getting rid of nits although this isn't compulsory. (Mums at the school gate have told me that dyeing your hair is a radical solution, as is using hair straighteners because you can hear them hiss and pop ! Ewwww ! ) UK only. Closing date : 30/11

Good luck (and I hope I haven't made you itch reading this post !)

    I'm a firm believer in regular tea-tree conditioning and fine combing. That way if a nit does creep onto your child's hair, you'll find it and prevent an infestation from happening! Prevention is better than cure!!

  20. Earlier this year my children brought the nasty nits home from school, I had no idea how bad they are to get rid of (the nits that is not the kids!!)

  21. fingers crossed

  22. i used to use this shampoo as a kid but the smell brings back bad memories for me, i think that they have changed the smell now to something a bit more refreshing. i would to try out the new version on my kids.
    contact via email or via twitter @emmabarron.
    am also following your blog, thanks.

  23. I've been using this shampoo recently and one of my girls hasn't had them since. The other I think I'm in a cycle at the moment but will soon crack it.

    Some of the time, I wash their hair as you would, put conditioner on and use that to run the nit comb thru.

    If its really bad there is another brand I use which does kill them, but don't half make their hair look greasy afterwards, even if you wash it again.

    I'm @totallydot

  24. Grand daughter, just picked them up after just 2 sessions at her 1st nursey, whats going on. Bring back the nit nurse we all had at school.

  25. I my daughter has never had nits! But I'd like to have the shampoo anyway to ward them off!

    I'm @maisietoo.

  26. My kids have never had nits and I swear its because I use this very shampoo!! :-D

  27. Headlice are the biggest nightmare - parents should be made to check their kids hair at least once a week to prevent outbreaks.

  28. Headlice are such a nightmnare to get rid of, as soon as my daughter has rid of them, another child in her class will have them and pass them back around. Would love to try Vosene and hope it solves the problem!

  39. I haven't seen this before but sounds very interesting - my 2 boys have bought home the little friends a few times and have thoughtfully passed them onto me - yuk! I have always used the horrible smelling stuff in the past so using something that smells nice would be far preferable.
