Summer Blogger Block Party: Enter to Win a Robi Comb from LiceGuard! (GIVEAWAY)

The Summer Blogger Block Party comes to an end today, and I’m wrapping it up with a terrific giveaway from LiceGuard! You may think your kids escaped the risk of being infected with lice with the end of school, but if they’re going to summer camp, you should know that the lice are still lurking! As kids share hats, headbands, towels and pillows this summer, they greatly increase the chances of spreading the dreaded lice to each other. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that 6-12 million lice infestations occur every year among kids aged 3 to 11. That’s why it’s important to be prepared just in case.

LiceGuard, a major name in non-toxic and chemical-free lice treatments for more than 10 years in over 34 countries, has just announced an affiliation with the American Camp Association just in time for summer. Their goal is to educate the camping community about the dangers of exposing kids to chemical-based lice treatment products, as well as promote healthy living through an environmentally friendly lifestyle. One of the non-toxic lice-fighting products they have is called a Robi Comb!

About the Robi Comb:

The Robi Comb is a non-invasive electronic lice comb powered by a single AA battery that detects and destroys lice on contact simply by combing it through dry hair. When the Robi Comb’s metal teeth touch lice, the lice get zapped, die and then get combed away. Unlike chemical treatments, the Robi Comb can be used as often as you like and can be used repeatedly by the entire family. The Robi Comb lets you know by an audible signal whether or not head lice are present, so it can be used to detect an infestation as well as treat it. In fact, many school nurses are now using the Robi Comb for exactly that reason. School nurses report that Robi Comb is able to find lice which they have missed when checking visually. More than 3,000 school districts in all 50 states are now currently using the Robi Comb. This innovative product is available for purchase for $29.99 at major retailers such as Walgreens, CVS and Rite Aid, as well as thousands of local pharmacies across the nation.

If your children go to preschool, elementary school and/or summer camp, the Robi Comb is a must-have to keep around the house. Even if you’ve managed to dodge the lice bullet so far (as we have), it could strike at any time. Be prepared. Visit www.liceguard.com to learn more about the Robi Comb and LiceGuard’s other pesticide-free products for treating lice.

  9. I learned that:
    In addition, it is widely reported that lice have been building up a resistance to the pesticides used in shampoos. Many chemicals just don't kill lice anymore.

  20. I learned that Toxic shampoos are a common method for killing lice. These products to get rid of lice use pesticides such as Pyrethrum or Permethrin. These chemicals are toxic and attack the louse's nervous system.
    Many people are wary of using these products due to concerns regarding overexposing children to the pesticides.

  21. I learned the Robi Comb also happens to be a very economical way to kill lice fast than Harsh chemical treatments and toxic shampoos.
