We believe getting rid of headlice and nits can be drama-free
Our vision is to give you the resources, perspective and even humour to make your headlice experience drama-free. More than that, what we hope is that the experience is one that your child remembers because you did such an amazing, caring job.
Could you actually make it fun? You might feel like growling right now… FUN???? Yes, we think so.
Even if you don’t have Goodbye Nits, slide on over to Get Started Treating Headlice and Nits (the healthy way), you can get started straight away.
Dealing with headlice and nits for the first time is a rite of passage, just like chicken pox and that first tummy bug. Your children will always find ways to challenge you to grow a little more, whether they know it or not!
Dealing with headlice and nits more than once is just plain annoying. Especially if you don’t know if it’s because the product you are using is not really doing the job, OR your child keeps picking them up at the classroom. Either way, you are faced with the reality that you are STILL dealing with them.
Goodbye Nits has quietly existed for years. It just took Becky (the product maker) that long to be ready to be the person that talks about headlice and nits as a job (you’d think about that for awhile too, wouldn’t you?) She had yet to go through her own rite of passage of dealing with them with her children. (Surely, not HER kids!)
Then, with both kids in primary school, and her own rite of passage of headlice safely in the past, she started to hear stories.
- Chemicals, tears and chronic infestations
- Stories about embarrassment and financial strain and giving up
- Parents doubting themselves, doubting the school, doubting other parents
- Kids not wanting to tell their parents….. “they’re baaaaack”
It was after one particularly horrific story that Becky realized she had to get over this talking about headlice for a living thing. So, she gave herself a little talk. It worked. She started thinking of funny, supportive videos (they are coming) and changing the culture of headlice in NZ. And then she got excited.
Becky started talking to people about headlice and nits. And people were so happy to talk.
Pharmacists, parents, kids, nurses, hairdressers, school administrators, teachers, aunties, caregivers…
More stories!! Everyone has a story. One of them was recounted from events that took place 70 years ago. People remember drama. And headlice seems to attract a lot of drama.
Here’s to you and your child’s drama-free passage through headlice and nits.
