Stop lice in their tracks with Vamousse lice products

By | October 19, 2016|Featured, Lifestyle|Comments Off on Stop lice in their tracks with Vamousse lice products

Lice. Sadly, I had it when I was younger. I remember who started it, and how all five of us who sat around him, ended up with it. Those little pests love clean hair, and my mother was supremely anal about me having clean hair. Short, clean hair. It was my undoing, and it also [...]
