Head lice are a common problem that usually affects school-aged children and their families. They can attach to the hair of anyone’s head. It doesn’t matter if the hair is clean or dirty. Head lice are also found worldwide in all different places, such as in homes or schools or the country or city. And it doesn’t matter how clean, dirty, rich, or poor the place or person is.

Though head lice may be a nuisance, they don’t cause serious illness or carry any diseases. Head lice can be treated at home.

Here are some safety guidelines:

  • Follow the directions on the package exactly as written.
  • Never let children apply the medicine. Medicine should be applied by an adult.
  • Do not use medicine on a child 2 years or younger without first checking with your child’s doctor.
  • Do not use or apply medicine to children if you are pregnant or breastfeeding without first checking with your doctor.
  • Always rinse the medicine off over a sink and not during a shower or bath, so the medicine doesn’t run off the head onto other areas of skin. Place your child’s head over a sink and rinse the medicine off with warm water (not hot water).
  • Never place a plastic bag on a child’s head.
  • Do not leave a child alone with medicine in his or her hair.
  • Store medicine in a locked cabinet, out of sight and reach of children.

Warning: Never use dangerous products like gasoline or kerosene or medicines made for use on animals! Also, do not use home remedies, such as petroleum jelly, mayonnaise, tub margarine, herbal oils, or olive oil, because no studies prove they work.

As for me what worked for us was Licealiz Head Lice Treatment Shampoo. So i was happy to have been invited to their event.

Lamoiyan Corporation’s Licealiz Head Lice Treatment Shampoo rolls out Kilusang Kontra Kuto Year 4, a yearly nationwide shampooing activity in its commitment to battle head lice infestation or pediculosis and eliminate the social stigma associated with it. 

In partnership with the Department of Education (DepEd), Lamoiyan Corporation is visiting 30 schools nationwide and targets to shampoo around 6,000 head lice infested students. Sample sachet products will also be distributed within the surrounding communities through this activity.

Contrary to popular belief, the persistent ailment does not only affect children or people who do not practice good hygiene. Through this year’s campaign, Lamoiyan Corporation aims to emphasize that pediculosis can happen to any people regardless of hair length, gender, age, and even social class. 

“For the past years, Lamoiyan was able to raise awareness and debunk misconceptions surrounding pediculosis by spreading the correct information. Head lice infestation can occur to anyone and, hopefully, people would start helping affected individuals rather than discriminating because it is a concern that has a solution,” shared Lamoiyan Corporation Marketing Director Ruby Rose Cavestany. 

Kilusang Kontra Kuto Year 4 has visited different schools across Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao where Licealiz held educational talks, fun games, and free shampooing activity. 

Lamoiyan Corporation’s Licealiz Head Lice Treatment Shampoo initiated in 2016 the Kilusang Kontra Kuto, a coalition that has been battling head lice infestation nationwide for a kuto-free Philippines. 

Now on its fourth year, Lamoiyan has partnered again with industry leaders such as DepEd, Drugstores Association of the Philippines (DSAP) and Mommy Bloggers Philippines to further spread the correct information about pediculosis and widely reach grass roots level.   

Lamoiyan Corporation is inviting everyone to join their fight against head lice and be part of the Kilusang Kontra Kuto Year 4. To know more about the activities of Kilusang Kontra Kuto, visit www.facebook.com/licealiz.
