How does it work?
Rosemary, tea tree oil, lavender and citronella are essential oils renowned for their insects repelling properties, in particular lice. Snoof’s laboratories have developed a unique formula allowing the gradual release of pure essential oils from our gorgeously designed hair accessories, over a period of three months!
Will others be able to smell my daughter’s Snoof accessories?
Snoof’s hair products were developed and designed to allow a pleasant rather than an overwhelming odour of essential oils; furthermore, these scents are distributed evenly across the head. If you closely smell your child’s head, you will notice the oil fragrance. It should be noted that unlike other oils in the current market, Snoof’s scents are pleasant and gentle; ensuring your daughter herself enjoys and wants to wear our accessories.
Can a long-term use of Snoof products be harmful?
Absolutely not. The amount of oil in Snoof’s accessories is sufficient to maintain head hygiene and will not cause any harm to your child. Our unique design allows the accessories to distribute the essential oils scents across the hair gradually and evenly. Those who wear Snoof’s accessories will not necessarily notice the smell. Another important fact is that Snoof oils do NOT come into contact with the scalp and hair to ensure the utmost safety.
What about the boys? Are there Snoof accessories for them too?
Snoof helps boys too… but indirectly. It turns out that there are 50% fewer cases of boys affected by head lice relative to girls, so naturally if girls are protected, the number of head lice cases among boys will simultaneously significantly drop. Additionally, we are working on creating a unisex collection of hair accessories suitable for both boys and girls.
Are some of the smells more effective than the others?
No. All of Snoof’s oils are equally effective in maintaining the head hygiene, so you can simply pick your favourite scent and color.
Is one rubber band enough to maintain head hygiene?
One rubber band will highly reduce the chance for future infestation.
However, for best effects use more accessories. For ultimate protection, Snoof recommends the use of two small accessories, or a large accessory with a small accessory; for instance: a ponytail holder and a hairpin; two ponytail holders; or a hair bow (hair bow distribute the scents over a wider area) with a rubber band.
I am a mother who got infected with lice from my children; does Snoof have any solution for me?

What happens three months after opening the product?
As long as the product is sealed in its original packaging – the scents are enclosed and will not be activated. Once you open the package, Snoof’s accessory begins to spread the scent of oils. After three months, the scent will become less noticeable. As Snoof’s hair accessories are of the highest quality and extremely pretty, you will be able to continue using them as “regular” accessories.
