Fairy Tales natural hair product: head lice prevention

As back to school is getting closer, let’s start the week talking about head lice prevention. This past school year I received emails through out the year from both of my daughters’ schools regarding lice outbreaks. I am well aware that it’s not a diseases or anything serious for me to be concern about. But, the whole idea that there could be little bugs crawling, lying eggs … on their heads really bothers me. On top of it all the amount of work (which I don’t need like every other mom) that comes to get rid of the lice is increadible. And, to be honest I don’t love the idea of using really strong chemical shampoos on their head to kill the lice. So, talking to a friend about lice and my strong feelings against it (which thankfully she shared them too), she told me about this natural shampoo that she uses on her children that helps prevent lice. According to their website “Rosemary Repel® – the first line of natural hair care products proven to help prevent head lice using organic herbs of rosemary, tea tree, peppermint, lavender and geranium oils.” Here is their website http://www.fairytaleshaircare.com in case you are interested. That’s it, my friends, we went through a whole school year and not one case of lice in our household. Phew! I must say that I also took other prevention methods like putting their hair in pony-tails or braids almost everyday, asking them not to play dress up, and instructing them not to share jackets, sweaters or hats. Fingers crossed that 2013-2014 school year will be another head lice free at mine and your household. Have a great week!



Summer ready!

I’m finding a little awkward to post about this. But the whole point of this blog is to make the everyday a little more extraordinary. Right? If it means posting about waxing – Be it!!

Ok! If there is one thing that most girls hate on their body is hair. We take care of it all year long but during summer we really have to step it up. But it’s so hard when you don’t have an awesome esthetician to help you out. I think your search for one is over (if you live in Vancouver). I highly recommend Gisele at Le Petit Spa (lepetitspa.ca). I have been going to her for over 4 years. Besides being super nice, she is so good at her job and fast. At least for me fast is a must. Don’t you agree? I hope your search is over now.

That was short and sweet… Have a great Tuesday!
