I have a secret to tell.....
Kib had kuto (head lice) in the past.
Please don't tell him that I wrote it in my blog, or else he'll get mad at me, haha.
Don't worry, he's already kuto-free. Feel free to kiss and hug him whenever you see him, hihi.
Anyway, I guess most of us had lice problems when we were younger. The most classic way of removing the head lice is for our moms to remove it one by one or by using an ultra-fine hair comb (suyod). If the problem is worse, either our moms will cut our hair very, very short or douse our hair with kerosene. It may sound barbaric but in the past years, we do not have so much choices in treating head lice problems. At present, there are already available over-the-counter head lice treatment available on drugstores and supermarkets, one of them is Licealiz.
Licealiz is one of the leading shampoo treatment for head lice in the Philippines. Manufactured by Lamoiyan Corporation, one of its missions is to have a lice-free Philippines.
According to the study conducted by Department of Education (DepEd) and University of the Philippines, pediculosis or head lice infestation is considered as second to the most common health problem for those children studying in public schools, next to tooth decay
Last October 2nd, Lamoiyan Corporation launched Kilusang Kontra Kuto Year 3 in public schools all over the Philippines. For Year 3, they first started at Bagong Silangan Elementary School in Quezon City where they washed all the kids' hair with Licealiz shampoo. Each kid was also given one towel and a fine hair comb to check if they have hair lice after shampooing.
Part of the campaign is educating the children and parents on proper hygiene and removal of head lice should a child gets infested. The campaign hopes to break whatever myths people have on why people get head lice and the unconventional ways of getting rid of it.
Head lice infestation may be common for children, but it does not mean that adults are exempted to get it. Should adults get infested with head lice, treat it with Licealiz.
Let's be all part of kuto-free Philippines and spread awareness on how to avoid getting head lice infestation!
