The "whatever life throws at me" bit is head lice. Fortunately we've caught it early as we try to remember to check the kids hair once a week. I really don't want to catch them - my hair is so coarse and thick that it just doesn't fit through a nit comb. I caught them when I was pregnant with my son and they went mental on the pregancy hormones. Where my daughter had a few adult nits, I had hundreds! I do not want to go through that again (nits or pregnancy!). I'm so glad for the existence of products like Lyclear - ones that suffocate the lice rather than using insecticides. I can treat the kids without worry.
Disclaimer: I recieved some Lyclear products to test for the purposes of this post.
