Youth sports can offer children physical, emotional and social benefits. Because of this, families across the country are currently busy confirming their child’s spot on their local baseball, softball or T-ball team. While shopping for bats and other sports equipment, Hair Whisperers Founder, Amy Goldreyer, suggests a batting helmet top your list this Spring.
In business since 2006, Hair Whisperers sees an increase in clients each Spring who are on a baseball or softball team. Goldreyer noticed that after treating one child from a team, the phone soon started ringing with requests to treat additional teammates. “We tell our children all year to not share brushes, combs or hats to prevent spreading lice, but then cheer them on as they put on a team batting helmet before heading to the plate,” observes Goldreyer.
Millions of families are impacted by head lice each year. Sharing helmets is an effective means to transmit and spread head lice, so Hair Whisperers would like to see more parents consider a personal batting helmet, which can run around $20. Goldreyer points out “The money spent today on a personal helmet can save a small fortune later in lost time at work, time away from school and treatment costs to kill and/or remove the lice.” She adds, “Don’t forget to label the helmet clearly and work with your coach to keep it from getting thrown into the helmet “general population” during games and practice.”
