Keep Head Lice Away with STINGBye hair band

STINGBye, an independent Spanish textile company has launched the “Sin Sin” hair band in the UK.

This simple yet effective solution helps prevent head lice amongst children and adults. The innovative hair band which is treated with an active ingredient known as Petrimina provides a barrier against lice.

In recent years, head lice have become more prevalent and it is estimated that every year a third of school age children (under 16) are infested with head lice. Head lice can live on all types of hair and don’t distinguish between clean and dirty hair.

According to Silvia Oviedo, Managing Director of STINGbye,

“Our hair band is designed to spare parents and their children many headaches”. “We detected a need in the market and we decided to bet on this product”, continued Oviedo. The STINGBye hair band does not give off any type of smell and passes totally unnoticed. The innovative design of the product provides 94% effective protection without all the fuss of unpleasant lice treatments.

The product is certified by OEKO-TEX class I, the Swiss Tropical Institute SWISS TP Hand AITEX.

The product which is available via Amazon comes in a variety of colours including red, navy, pink, khaki and black. RRP £7.63
