Nits. Head Lice. School age children bring the bastards home to infect everyone. Itchy heads. Scratchy scratchy scratch. Hooray.

I’ve somehow managed to convince the lovely people at Hedrin that I’m an INFLUENTIAL LIFESTYLE AND PARENTING BLOGGER and they have sent me some head lice medicine to try out on my kids, in an attempt to bring an end to the endless battle that comes from having kids with hair.

Have you started scratching your head yet? I have, just thinking about head lice and nits and all the crawling on your head trying to drain off your valuable head fluids (blood? I dunno) and how as a parent you face an uphill struggle to stop the spread of the little buggers before the whole house gets infected and invaded.

The main carrier for these creeps is Meg, the middle kid, as she’s still at the primary school stage, and hasn’t yet learned to avoid human contact as much as possible. I imagine she will pass the baton to the youngest in a couple of years and we’ll have to go through this whole rigmarole again.

I’ve been sent a weapon in this endless war on the scratchy parasitic mind nibblers, in the form of Hedrin’s lovely products.

We have the Hedrin Protect & Go spray, which you spray on your kid’s noggin (and your noggin too, because if they kids are at risk, that puts you at risk because locking yourself away from them is apparently bad parenting) like a leave-in conditioner (Gem says this is a thing that exists) and it should stop head lice from finding their way onto their paradise of hairy goodness.

On the off chance this doesn’t work, or if the kid comes home before you even think to spray their head with magical nit repellent, there is this..

Hedrin Once Spray Gel. I could be one of those blogger reviewers who writes what it says on the box and say this spray kills head lice and eggs fast in one 15 minute treatment, but that would make me some kind of tired hack.

Oh, and this one is Mumsnet approved, but don’t hold that against it. Hitler was a vegetarian, that doesn’t mean vegetables are evil. Except sweetcorn. Sweetcorn is evil. Ruining easily made noodle snacks.

So, thankfully, we’ve been head lice and nit free for a good month or so (I’ve been holding off on writing this review because every time I thought about doing it, I started scratching my head to stop the completely imagined itching) so I guess that makes this a positive review.

I wonder if they’ll replace that ‘Mumsnet approved’ sticker with ‘Fudgecrumpet approved’. I should make some stickers like that and then stick them on everything I like. Mostly noodle snacks without sweetcorn. Or obscure 1990s sci-fi movies. Or big tubs of yoghurt.

Right then, this product works, go buy it from wherever you buy nit medicine, I dunno Boots or whatever. Check out the Hedrin website if you want, I won’t stop you. See if I care. My head is itching now. FFS.

    That stuff is good. I use it. The Once gel takes more than one go at shampooing out though. I will use it again. And also recommend it to others. Thank you for your public service blogging. Also this made me laugh and itch. *Scratches*
