It’s back to school time again. Unfortunately, an article on how to get rid of lice – is also quite timely. (Keep reading for a chance to WIN YOUR OWN ROBICOMB)
Fortunately, there isn’t a big health risk – but this little bug IS extremely annoying and hard to get rid of.
And the social stigma that comes along with having lice is difficult for any child to bear.
Common treatments involve chemical shampoos. These contain pesticides that handle the lice – but how harmful are these toxins to your child?
To add insult to injury the American Academy of Pediatrics has amended their “No Nits” policy to say that kids with nits don’t pose a substantial hazard to other kids.
Yup. You read that right. They are telling us that it is ok to send kids with nits to school.
How will a community ever get rid of this little bug?
Enter the RobiComb
The RobiComb from the folks at LiceGuard.com.
This is an electronic lice comb that zaps lice dead when combed through dry hair. It’s non-invasive, safe to use, and doesn’t involve any harmful chemicals. This revolutionary comb runs on a single AA battery.
When a little bugger gets zapped you even hear a little sound, so you know it’s working.
It is so effective, in fact, that over 3,000 school districts in the United States use this comb in their health offices.
The RobiComb normally retails for $29.99 at drugstores nationwide – but you can win one here at NeenMachine.com absolutely free.
