Going back to school is one of the most exciting and challenging times of the year for many children around the world because of all that it means for them.
New classrooms, seeing classmates again, studying new subjects, facing the first exams... As these things, by themselves, are already important enough, we don't need them to have unnecessary worries like annoying lice.
Precisely because of the return to contact between friends and classmates, this is the time when we must be more alert and try to prevent rather than be forced to cure. We are of course talking about using specific products periodically to prevent the little ones from catching them or to eliminate the lice as quickly as possible once we have just detected them.
To get down to work and try to avoid unnecessary frights, at El Comprador de La Vanguardia we have selected some of the best shampoos and treatments for our children. You will also find in this selection some ideal antiparasitic combs to improve these care routines.
