Lice Prevention Tips from Fairy Tales Hair Care & Giveaway!

Fairy-Tales-Hair-Care-logo

As a mother of two, Risa Barash is well aware of the panic that moms experience once they receive the dreaded “Lice in the classroom” letter from their child’s school. Being the co-founder of Fairy Tales Hair Care, creators of the best-selling Rosemary Repel line, she knows a thing or two about lice prevention. For more than 10 years she has been known as the “Lice Expert,” providing advice to moms nationwide, including a segment on the hit television show, The Doctors. Here are some of her tips on how to keep families lice-free:

Talk to your children about not sharing their personal items. Younger children tend to be very willing to share things like hats, headbands, hair ties, head phones and helmets, which is a no-no when it comes to lice prevention. Lice do not fly, jump or hop; they crawl from one head to another. Therefore, kids should know to avoid direct head to head contact.

Perform weekly head checks on your children. In the event that your child does get lice, it is always best to catch it in the early stages. Lice like to nest in warm places, so be sure to check the hot spots, which are behind the ears, the back of the neck and the part lines. Doing a weekly head check will allow you to stop the problem before it progresses.

Use natural hair care products that repel lice. It has been clinically proven that natural herbs and oils, such as rosemary, citronella and tea tree work as a repellant against lice. Products, such as Fairy Tales Hair Care’s Rosemary Repel, safely protect your children’s hair, without the use of chemicals. They bring peace of mind to the entire family.

These tips are the best ways to maintain a lice free household. With the right resources and information parents no longer need to panic once a “Lice in the Classroom” note is sent home from school. The Rosemary Repel products are available at Ulta stores, salons nationwide and on fairytaleshaircare.com.

This year Black Friday 2013 takes place on November 29th and the ads have already started to leak. On top of the ads, store hours and special offerings have been released. Let’s take a look at a run down of the recent Black Friday happenings. All information and ad scans are supplied courtesy of BestBlackFriday.com.

Toybooks – Toybooks are ad books of toy deals retailers typically release in late October that lead up until Black Friday week. Browse Target’s toy catalogs as well as the rest of the toybook ad scans as they are released. The highly anticipated Walmart Toyland Wishlist book and the Great Big Toys R Us Book are expected this week.

Harbor Freight – Browse the 42 item 4-page Harbor Freight ad scan. Their sale begins at 7am with Inside Track Members allowed in at 6am.

Macy’s – See a partially leaked version of the full Macy’s ad scan that will start at 8pm on Thanksgiving. Look for three rounds of doorbuster sales starting at 8pm Thursday, 5am Friday, and 7am Saturday.

Lowe’s – Here’s Lowe’s Inventory Hold List for Black Friday 2013. These are the items Lowe’s is setting aside in order to prepare for the big day.

Build-a-Bear – Read Build-a-Bear’s advertisement scan featuring limited edition Sock Monkeys, Nick & Joy as well as stocking stuffers from the Build-a-Bear Smallfrys collection.

JCPenney – JCPenney will start their Black Friday hours on Thanksgiving night at 8PM. They will also be giving away 2 million Disney Snow Globes to shoppers starting at 4am on Friday.

GameStop – Read GameStop’s 12-page 234-item Black Friday ad featuring a reduced Playstation Plus Membership and several video games such as Battlefield 4 at nearly 50% OFF.

6PM – The 6PM online sale starts at 12am  and will feature one hot new item for $24 every hour for 24 hours.

Walmart – While there is no direct news yet, the Walmart Black Friday ad will be the most sought after of the holiday season. Walmart has already boasted that they will have the biggest Black Friday ever with better deals, longer sales, longer hours, and an increased commitment to online specials. With the news that Walmart will heavily advertise during the NFL games on Thanksgiving the sale surely will not disappoint.

More to Come Soon

New Black Friday ads and news will continue to be leaked every day up until Black Friday Week. Be sure to check back frequently to ensure you do not miss out on all the latest updates.

Halloween Safety Tips from AT&T

With Halloween only weeks away, our little ghosts and goblins are ready to hit the streets for trick-or-treats.  And while certainly some of the costumes will be scary, it can also be a little spooky for parents as the kids head out on their own.

That’s why AT&T has compiled a list of important family safety tips and some apps to make this Halloween as sweet as the treats.

  1. Make sure wireless phones are fully charged and operational.
  2. Pre-program contact information of parents, neighbors and emergency services into your child’s speed dial, and be sure they know how to access these numbers with ease.
  3. Light up the night with the iHandy Flashlight app.  The flashlight is bright enough to light the way making sure your little pumpkins can see uneven sidewalks and puddles and more importantly that traffic can see them.  Free for iOS.
  4. Track your trick-or-treaters by using AT&T Family Map. Make sure your children are safe – and where they said they’d be – with this app. (Monthly fee.)  Or use the Trick or treating navigation app. Using GPS coordinates, you can bookmark important addresses. The app is $0.99 for iOS.
  5. Set up periodic alarms with Halloween-themed tones from Free Scary Halloween Ringtones as a reminder for trick-or-treaters to text or call home between candy collecting stops.  Free for android.
  6. Finally, make sure you have the Patch app so that you know what is happening in your community before the kids take off.  You can get updates on the latest news by entering your town.

And once you get all those goodies home, to help keep you out of their trick or treat bags, AT&T would like to give one lucky Frugal Philly Mom reader a treat of their own, the Fitbit Aria Wi-Fi Smart Scale.
