When my kid had lice several months ago, one thing we tried (on the school nurse’s recommendation) was to put mousse in his hair as it was supposedly a repellant.*
The kid became (to my mind bizarrely and incomprehensibly but I kept it to myself) enamored with the idea. He really liked the shiny unmoving visible-lines-of-hair helmet it gave him.
He’s been asking me if we can put the stuff in his hair again, as like a regular thing. So I now have some questions, because I’m old, and do not remember 2nd grade, and do not know what it’s like to be in 2nd grade in modern times anyway.
- Do 2nd graders use styling product?
- Do boys use mousse?
I guess those are the only two questions.
*Didn’t work. What finally worked, btw–and worked a charm!–was Lice M.D.
