About one-third of elementary public school students in the Philippines suffer from head lice problems. Children are teased, bullied or ignored for having head lice, which is a common cause for some of them to miss school. And though parents try their best to comb out their children’s lice with their suyod, it is often not enough to remove lice that can lay up to 100 eggs in a week.
Aside from being an inconvenience to their hosts, head lice are a menace to the whole community. They are easily transmitted in homes and schools, between friends, classmates and family members and the stigma associated with being infested can leave lasting damage to people’s reputations and psychological wellbeing.
To combat this, Licealiz head lice treatment shampoo is conducting the Licealiz Pilipinas, Kuto Free Ka Na Ba? Nationwide Oplan Alis Kuto. Aiming to raise awareness about lice infestation issues, the Licealiz team will be going to different schools and barangays all over the country to educate communities on lice prevention and treatment, and arranging shampooing programs and activities for students.
Licealiz effectively kills lice and nits and prevents recurring lice infestations after two weeks of use. Its active ingredient pyrethrin is clinically tested and proven as safe and successful in killing lice, while its conditioning formula keeps hair soft, smooth and fragrant. Licealiz also comes in a Soothing Coolness variant with cooling extract that gives the scalp a fresh relaxing feeling.
This month, the Licealiz team traveled to Antipolo (Juan Sumulong Elementary School and Sta. Cruz Elementary School), Parañaque (Fourth Estate Elementary School), Quezon City (Bagong Silangan Elementary School) and Pasig (Nagpayong Elementary School, Ilugin Elementary School – Nagpayong Annex). They will also be visiting more schools in Visayas and Mindanao over the next few months.
