Keep bugs at bay, the Vosene way


With the children back at school and others starting for the first time, it's quite likely that at some point soon your little ones will return home with unwanted visitors. Head lice. 

Unfortunately as many as 63% of parents, with children aged 4-11 years of age, have said in a survey that their children have had head lice. Prevention is certainly better, and easier than cure, and Vosene's repellent products are here to help!





Lice go for clean or dirty hair, long or short, so if heads touch (they can't fly/jump) it is possible they will be transferred but you can certainly do your bit to try and prevent them. Vosene Kids shampoo and conditioning spray help to defend against head lice and leave hair clean and fresh with each use.
You can find them in the health and beauty aisles in your local supermarket and chemist if you wish to pick up your own supplies.


  • Vosene Kids 3in1 Conditioning Shampoo (RRP £2.54, 250ml) - gently cleanses and conditions your kids’ hair and scalp leaving naturally healthy shiny hair. The specially formulated shampoo also contains natural Tea Tree Oil and Lemon Eucalyptus.
  • Vosene Kids Conditioning Defence Spray (RRP £2.54, 150ml) – this fantastic leave-in spray detangles and smooths your child’s hair, instantly taming the worst bed head and the most unruly knots. The clinically proven formula also helps protect against head lice - using natural ingredients such as Eucalyptus Oil, Citronella Oil and Rosemary Oil. Suitable for children aged 3 and over.


You can also check out the Vosene Kids Nitwatch website which includes an online map to track outbreaks and allows parents to request product samples and gather advice about prevention.

  1. My son has just started reception and he had a lovely letter saying how well he had done in their school assessments and that he was moving up to Year 1 class with 9 other children from reception. His teacher was amazed at what he know and so proud of him.

  3. The easiest way to check for an infection is to go over your child’s head with a fine toothed lice comb. Pay particular attention to the areas behind the ears and nape of the neck, where lice and nits like to hide. And if you want more info then visit at :bedbug911.com. thanks

  20. A fathers day for card for the hubby. The boys school stopped doing them as there were so many children at the school without Dad's around and they didnt want to upset the children. My husband was a little sad the 1st year this happened so last year I went and asked and low and behold they both came home with hand made fathers day cards.
