Vamousse Lice Treatment

I know this is a topic that may give you the heebie jeebies, but it’s necessary. LICE! It’s back to school time and it happens. I want to start out by saying that if your child gets lice that doesn’t mean he or she is dirty, it just means that they got a nasty little bug in their hair. Vamousse asked me to take a look at their products. It’s always good to be prepared so I of course said yes.

Top 10 Important Facts About Head Lice
1. Head lice are parasitic insects that only attack humans. You won’t catch lice from the family pet.
2. Head lice thrive on the scalp and are often found behind the ears and near the neckline at the back of the head. They can also be found on eyebrows and eyelashes.
3. Head lice stay alive by sucking blood from the human scalp.
4. Head lice are very small — about the size of a sesame seed. They can be tan, brown or grey in color.
5. The most common way head lice are spread is through direct head-to-head contact with an infested person. Head lice do not fly or jump.
6. At first glance, head lice eggs might be mistaken for dandruff. But unlike dandruff, they are firmly attached to the hair shaft with a waterproof glue-like substance.
7. Once head lice have fallen off a person’s head, they die within 1 to 2 days.
8. More and more, lice are becoming resistant to the chemical found in common over-the-counter (OTC) treatments. In fact, current data states that resistance has increased in the U.S. to 99.6% from 2007-2009.1
9. Males are less likely to get head lice than females because they typically have shorter hair.
10. Anyone can get head lice. They know no socioeconomic or ethnic boundaries. They are equal opportunity infesters.

The first product I received was the Vamousse Lice Treatment. Vamousse is proven to kill 100% of lice and eggs, in just 15 minutes. What I like about this product is that it’s a mousse. That means that it’s not straight liquid, so it’s easier to apply and won’t drip into your child’s eyes.
How to Use
  • Apply a generous amount of shampoo to wet hair, work into a lather and   massage into scalp. Leave shampoo on hair for at least 3 minutes. Rinse.
  • For best results, use the shampoo daily for at least 2 weeks.

Apply Vamousse:
  • Release one section of DRY hair from clip
  • Using parting comb, part hair every inch and apply Vamousse directly to scalp
  • Massage Vamousse into hair, working from the scalp toward the end of the hair
  • Continue parting hair every inch and apply the mousse until entire section is completely and thoroughly saturated
  • After the section is fully saturated, comb hair from the scalp toward the end of the hair to distribute Vamousse
  • Secure the saturated section of hair back in clip
  • Repeat process until all sections of hair have been treated. Depending on the length and thickness of hair, you may use the entire can of Vamousse
  • Note: Treat behind ears and the nape of the neck. Lice and eggs tend to gather in these areas.
The second product that I received was their Lice Prevention treatment. If your child doesn’t have lice but there is an outbreak at school or a good friend. The Lice Prevention Treatment is perfect and will help your child not get it. You can also use it on family members if someone in the family gets it. That way it won’t go to everyone.

Tips for Cleaning Home and Preventing Reinfestation:
  • Until they have been properly cleaned, do not allow family members to lie on pillows, beds, furniture, carpets or stuffed animals with which the infested person has been in contact.
  • Wash all clothing, bedding, towels and any other items the infested person was in contact with before treatment. Set washing machine to hot water cycle (at least 130oF). Dry items in clothes dryer, set on the high heat cycle for at least 20 minutes.
  • Dry-clean the items that can’t be washed, or place them in a sealed air-tight plastic bag and store for 4 weeks.
  • Vacuum furniture, carpets, rugs, floor, car seats and any other place the infested person sat. Dispose of vacuum filter immediately.
I am lucky and my kids have never gotten it (knocking on wood), but I have the products on hand just in case. It’s good to know that when/if the time comes that I won’t have to worry about running to the store and getting something.

  1. No my daughter has not had headlice thank god .. I hope she never does.. It would be awful .. No washer or dryer in home... Bedding and tons of clothes everywhere... Oh man it would be easier to just burn down our place and buy new stuff.

    I don't know how people even get rid of them if they are 99% resistant to any medicine.
    I had head lice a few times as a kid and I had really long hair.. It took days of washing and sitting getting my hair combed and picked .. I got it from gymnastics and my gymnastics teacher came to our house and picked them off my head for over three hours!
    I hate them and they should not even exisit. Where do they originate from .. They don't just appear on someone's head they have to come from somewhere... But where .. ? Stupid bugs.

  2. I haven't had to deal with it yet as a parent. (knock, knock) However, my daughter is starting Kindergarten this year and it's on eof my bigger worries.

  3. Way back years ago my daughter got it once. We bought rid and then every year when school would start I would buy rid to keep just in case. Thankfully it didn't happen again.

  4. I tell you what is all natural and works for lice and bed bugs too. As well as any other creepy crawlie thing . It is Diatomaceous Earth. It is a natural occurrence between rocks that happens over a bunch of years. It is a white powdery looking substance. Get the "Food Grade" type. How it effects bugs is bugs skeleton are on the outside of their bodies. This stuff effects them by being like glass to bugs and it literally cuts them to pieces. Before I knew about Diatomaceous Earth I used RidX and other products like it. Ohh bless the childrens hearts. The stuff smells so awful! It seems cruel to use it on them. This has no smell.

  5. Diatomaceous earth! IT is a mouth full but it is all natural and it kills bed bugs too! It kills any kind of bug. Get the food grade .
