No More Nasty Nits

Protect your child against head lice with Hedrin Protect & Go (£4.29/ 120ml)
a fuss-free spray which, when applied twice-a-week, protects children from an infestation. The orange and mango scented conditioning spray is ideal for times when the risk of infection increases, such as the beginning of a new school term, at children’s parties and following an outbreak letter from the school. Containing an organic compound, called 1,2-octanediol (Activdiol®), it disrupts the life cycle of head lice killing them and thereby preventing their spread. It is easy to apply and dries naturally leaving the hair looking healthy and conditioned.

All-Natural Hair Care

If you want non-toxic family toiletries, which are as kind to the planet as they are to your skin, then a perfect pick for you is Purepotions’ wonderful new eco-friendly hair care range. Made from plant-based, one hundred per cent biodegradable raw materials, and containing herbal extracts, they leave hair incredibly soft and clean without build-up of product. Described as ‘a minor miracle’ for anyone with sensitive skin conditions, the non-irritating, organic range is as mild and gentle as the “no shampoo” trend for detergent-free haircare. Find the complete range at and in Holland & Barrett stores from this autumn.

With a few quick sprays it instantly transforms ordinary toilet tissue into a moist, soothing and cleansing wipe. Available in two gentle varieties the ‘Spritz’ is dermatologist tested, approved for even the most sensitive skin with botanicals including Aloe Vera and Vitamins E, B5. Available from Sainsburys for RRP £3 (150ml) which does the job of 300 wipes.
