Euky Bear Blitz Nitz – super easy head lice treatment

easy effective head lice treatment

Nits. Just hearing that word makes me itch.

I’ll always remember the first time one of my kids got head lice (nits are the eggs, head lice are the ‘creatures’). I had never actually seen head lice before, only heard terrible stories from other parents. As I was brushing my daughters (very long) hair into a ponytail for dancing all of a sudden there it was. I thought it was like a fruit fly or some kind of insect but I got a weird uneasy feeling that maybe this was something more sinister.

My mum was visiting at the time and heard me say “Oh what’s that?” Mum came over to have a look at my daughters head, who by now was starting to pull away and scream “What? What?”

“Uh. She’s got nits” my Mum said calmly.

NOOOOOO. We are running late for dancing and this afternoon we are going to see Mary Poppins at the Capitol Theatre. My daughter can absolutely not have head lice. We just do not have time to deal with this. But alas the head lice had to go so I rushed out like a maniac and bought every head lice killing product the local chemist had in stock.

Back then the treatments required a towel around the shoulders and product left on the hair for an excruciating amount of time. It was then rinsed out and sometimes repeated or a second step required. It was a long, hard and messy process and brought my daughter to tears given her long hair, which made it very difficult to treat and then brush out the dead lice and nits.

Thank goodness there are now super easy head lice treatment options like Blitz Nitz Spray & Go.

Blitz Nitz Spray & Go is the easy way to treat lice. This product just sprays on (like a detangling or conditioning spray) and is left in the hair to kill the lice. It’s basically a leave in hair treatment that kills lice during the day or over night and then just washes out in the bath or shower. Perfect for those unexepected lice moments when you need a treatment that’s fast and effective.

Blitz Nitz Spray & Go is clinically proven to kill head lice and has no chemical pesticides. I has natural essential oils and botanical extracts which leave the hair soft, nourished and smelling great. Another thing I love about this product is 100% Australian made and owned.

Spray & Go is suitable for kids 2 + and is available at Chemist Warehouse for $12.99 (RRP $14.99). To learn more about Spray & Go visit their website. You can connect with Euky Bear on Facebook.

It’s been quite a while since we have had a head lice incident in our house (thank god!!). Whilst I hope none of you have to deal with head lice EVER, if you do then Spray & Go is an easy and clinically proven way to get rid of them!

Love Mummahh

    The night before the girls big dance concert. Had to set my alarm for 6am to start combing out their hair with the lice comb the morning of the concert so I would have it all done on time.

    I’m living a nit nightmare right now!! Treatment, treatment and more treatment, and they keep coming back! Ahhhhhh!

    The day of my sisters wedding! Not only were we frantically trying to get ready but we had to rush to the store to get nit treatment and apply and get rid of before leaving for the ceremony!!

    Any time is inconvenient when it comes to head lice

    Four kids, five minutes before heading out the door to get to school. One said she was itchy, checked them, and yeap, all four had nits. Had to ring up all three schools and say they weren’t coming in and why, and then spent four hours de-lousing. Not fun.

    Late on a Sunday night just recently just before bedtime! Scratch, scratch….oh not again! My daughter is particularly difficult as she hates having her hair brushed or washed! Always a battle 🙁

    It was my one day off to get work done while my boys were at day care. I got the call that they both had nits. 😁😁😁

    My daughter has had them twice – first time last year it was the hairdresser that found eggs and luckily i could get to them early so it was not that bad. Then she got them again the second week of school this year, i found them because i was tying her head back and noticed a red rash behind her ear. Lo and behold her head was full of eggs and about 15 adult nits – she had the day off school and i went through her hair bit by bit to get as many eggs as i could – it was a very long day!!!!. I try and remember to check my kids heads weekly now.

    I’ve had them a few times as an adult and each times its gotten worse. The feeling of nits is gross and strange, even worse when you don’t realise you’ve got them (again) until you go to the hairdresser, who announces I’ll need to come back for a hair cut once I’ve gotten rid of my nits. Awesome.

    Seriously my life feels like “Groundhog Day” at the moment, treating and combing through 2 girls long hair and my own every night only to find a week after they have them again! Told my friends that the girls had lice so they should check their kids just in case, one said her kids didn’t have any (the one with the kids whose hair resembles beetle juice because he hadn’t stopped scratching all night) and the other glances through her kids hair and said they were ok as well! Ba humbug!!

    My daughter didn’t get them until her last year of primary school and at Christmas time. She was absolutely horrified and cried and cried. It was a nightmare.

  13. carly August 11, 2016 at 12:13 pm

    my daughter was going up on parade to get her first award and i see her standing there, scratching like crazy!

    During the most busiest season of my work
    When every night till late I’d cry with tiredness
    Trying to comb out the nits from my daughters long hair!

  15. Cathy Bailey August 10, 2016 at 5:12 pm

    I was mortified when I took my twins to the hairdressers for a trendy style,only to be turned away because they both had nits! Have never been back there since.

    Son was in prep at the time, caught dreaded nits & his visiting Grandparents in their wisdom (joking) said he had cooties and the only way to get rid of them was to shave his head. Much to my wife’s horror, while we were outside seeing my parents off (yep, it had to be my parents), the little bloke was inside, not with scissors or the stubble trimmer, but with the dogs clippers, hacking off his cute longish curls. It was such a botched job, he looked like he’d just escaped a prison camp. Funny now, but back then it was a shocker.

    My dear Mum and preschool niece, came to visit…with nits! Sister-in-law realized on the morning of the long distance train trip that her daughter had nits, so purchased nit treatment on the way to the train station. Poor Mum had to put up with the nits and niece itching for four hours on the train and then the embarrassment of telling me that she’d brought an infestation of the little buggers with them.

    when we went on a camping trip – had to cancel and come back home in order to buy and use a lice pack

    Mum found head lice in my sister and my hair, as we were waiting to board a plane to Fiji, so we had lice treatment done in the airport toilet and stunk the whole way to Fiji.

    The most inconvient time was when I was pregnant in my first trimester with severe morning sickness. Combing through my daughters hair took me so long with many breaks as the smell of the treatment was making me run.

    My first two Children born in the 80s never ever once had headlice! When my next three were young we all got them and to my horror I did not know anything until I got a letter from the school. I had it, the two older ones had it and bubs had it too….I checked his fine hair and found one to my horror. I always shared the same hair brush with them so it was easy to spread. I would love this prize for the Grandkids…..to fight the battle.
