Vamousse Protective Shampoo Review – Stop Head Lice

October 15, 2015

Head lice are back! Is not what you want to see as the title of the parent mail pinging up on your phone. I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one who meets this announcement with a groan? Last year the boys caught them on more than one occasion and I would spend the next few weeks meticulously making sure they were free from them. 

However last week when I received the email I was able to start using our Vamousse Protective Shampoo. You use it as part of the daily bath time routine by lathering on and leaving for at least 3 minutes. By using it daily it can stamp out an infestation before it takes hold as it kills the lice before they can lay any eggs. 

Vamousse protective shampoo review

The shampoo comes in a bottle and a little goes a long way. We have been using it for almost two weeks now and there is hardly a dent in the amount. It lathers easily, smells fresh with a tea tree hint and leaves the boys hair silky and soft. Most importantly it contains no pesticides. 

I didn’t realise that it can take almost a month before you can become aware of an infestation. To start with young lice (nymphs) are too small to be seen by the naked eye and don’t cause the itching sensation. 


Since being sent the protective shampoo and using it when alerted to an outbreak we haven’t found any head lice so we haven’t been able to use the Vamousse Treatment. The treatment is quick as it kills 100% of lice and eggs within 15 minutes of contact. There is a video on how to use it and even an APP you can download to keep your kids entertained whilst the Vamousse gets to work. 

Overall I’m really impressed with the shampoo. It’s definitely something that I would buy myself as it is quick and gives peace of mind. I will come back and update this post to let you all know if we manage to avoid the head lice for the rest of the School year. 

You can buy the products online or instore at Superdrug, Boots and Sainsburys. The Protective Shampoo retails at £9.99 which I think is great value as I spent so much last year on treating head lice.

  1. this is one thing I don’t enjoy about having all girls!! I cover them in repellent spray and hairspray every morning as well as tying their hair back, most times they aren’t impressed lol #picknmix

  2. Funnily enough I was thinking about headlive yesterday…our three year old has just started nursery and has an amazing head of I am dreading that day! maybe it’s worth investing in something like this before it happens :-/ #picknmix

    I’m going to get this – dreading the parentmail message too! #picknmix

  4. This looks interesting. Thankfully we have not yet encountered the dreaded headline but this protective shampoo seems like a good way to keep it that way #PicknMix

  5. Headlice at school are a nightmare! My children are older now but my girls always had long hair and even when I sent them to school with it tied back they sometimes still caught them. I got into the habit of combing through their wet hair every time it was washed which did seem to help finding anything that was lurking! This looks like a good product. Thanks for hosting #PicknMix

    Very interesting. Glad there are products out there for this. Thankfully we haven’t had to deal with this and hope to not have to. Strangely enough, this topic of live came up in my middle school class this week because of a book we are reading together. Thanks for sharing. #PicknMix

  7. That is such a good idea! I hate the dreaded texts / emails from school too, such a mission with my daughter as her hair is so long and thick. Luckily we haven’t had to deal with the little nits fro several years now, thank goodness!

    Loving the idea of headlice prevention – I will definitely be using this! #picknmix

  10. Oh the dreaded nits. I usually use heard, but this one sounds great. i’ll remember that next time (I’m sure it won’t be long!) Jodie xxx #picknmix

    This is amazing. I’ve just shown this to my mum and she’s going to order it. She’s a teach in a school and the amount of times headlice goes around is unreal. xx

  12. It’s not an issue for us yet, but it’s good to see what products are out there now. I have none too fond memories of kneeling over the bath and having the dreaded nit comb dragged through my hair… #picknmix

  13. Maria says:

    I didn’t even know you could get headlice prevention shampoo – must look it up. We’ve had notices about healice at school recently so I think it’s only a matter of time before E gets it! #picknmix

  14. Ashleigh says:

    I can remember back when I was in primary school and I used to get them every week without fail as someone in my class never got rid of them. I’m dreading the day I have to do it to my little boys hair.

  15. Thank you very much for this post, very informative. I had no idea that you can use it was a daily routine thing. Interesting indeed.

  16. I had that email a couple of weeks ago and we have been on the look out ever since! I like the sound of this shampoo and may look into getting some although I would be interested to see a review where children that use it have eczema. Thanks for hosting #PickNMix

  17. My head is itching just reading this!! The only time the boys had them I shaved their heads ; ) it’s handy having boys sometimes 😉
