About one-third of elementary public school students in the Philippines suffer from head lice-related problems. Head lice infestation or pediculosis can cause severe itchiness and infection of the scalp, but this could be the least of these children’s worries; the social stigma associated with having kuto can leave lasting psychological damage on both children and their parents.
A survey of communities visited by the Licealiz caravan last year found that 47% of respondents from Visayas and 76% of respondents from Mindanao said that their children were bullied and teased for having head lice, causing some of them to miss school to avoid their peers. The parents, on the other hand, feel incompetent and embarrassed for being unable to prevent head lice from infesting their children.
In response to this, Lamoiyan Corporation’s Licealiz Head Lice Treatment Shampoo launched Nationwide Oplan Alis Kuto as a part of its Kilusang Kontra Kuto effort to educate the public on lice infestation issues. The caravan was launched in partnership with the Department of Education, University of the Philippines Manila College of Public Health and Mommy Bloggers Philippines with the goal of traveling to different schools and barangays all over the country to hold shampooing programs and lectures for students and their parents.
Lamoiyan Corporation is set to end the year with 30 public schools visited and over 8,000 children shampooed.
The Kilusang Kontra Kuto visits Ayala Central School in Zamboanga City for Nationwide Oplan Alis Kuto.
“We want to remove the stigma associated with having kuto by educating communities on lice infestation issues,” said Lamoiyan Corporation Marketing Director Bing Cavestany. “We want to drive home the message that everyone can be potentially infested by kuto, that it’s not something to be ashamed about, and definitely not something to ridicule others for. We also hope to encourage these communities to unite and take action to solve this public health problem together,” shared Cavestany.
Licealiz invites everyone to join the Kilusang Kontra Kuto in changing the public’s perception about head lice infestation and spreading correct information regarding head lice prevention and treatment.

Seafood is one of the most popular types of food in the United States, and any lover of seafood knows why. This refreshing type of food can be cooked up in so many ways that there’s never a shortage of something new to try. For example, take shrimp. Whether you’re cracking and peeling it and partaking of its cool, crisp flavor, or you’re eating it deep fried in a Nashville hot flavor, you’re going to experience this type of seafood in a dramatically different way. It’s never the same food twice.
One of the things to remember for seafood restaurants in Plano is that to most people, seafood is more expensive than other types of food. This means when they go out for a seafood meal, they expect something that’s on a little bit grander scale than just hamburger or a hot dog. They want excellence. For this reason, it’s necessary to make sure that you have good chefs to prepare the seafood and that you buy it from a place that sells it fresh. Fresh catch seafood is always going to cost more, and customers will reward you richly if you operate this type of seafood place.
There are literally millions of different ways to prepare seafood, both at home and in restaurants. Restaurant owners should never let their menu get stale. Once again, because the price of seafood is just a bit higher than other types of traditional food, people are going to expect something that tastes fresh, but they’re also going to expect the dining location to keep things fresh with new types of menu items. More than any other restaurant, a seafood dining facility should make sure that they almost always have some type of twist on their menu items.
Decor is also an important part of what makes for a satisfying seafood dining experience. You’ve got to have the sensation that you’re at a seafood place, not just another type of place to eat. Decor is going to play a part in the overall satisfaction of the dining experience, so it never hurts to get consultants and designers who will really spice up the location and make customers feel like they’re dining at a really special place. If all owners followed these few simple tips, more people might be flocking to seafood locations right now to get a taste of the sea.
Have you ever experienced a day wherein nothing seems to go well, that no matter how you try to choose the right path, you keep making the wrong turn? Just like having a bad hair day, no matter how many times you comb your hair, it just would not budge.
Life can be challenging at times but there will always be a way to resolve these challenges and come out victorious. Having this in mind will be easy to keep your patience and continue to move forward.
Just like losing strands of your hair due to factors beyond your control, you too can do something.
• Eat healthy – Eating the right food can alter your mood. Having low-level of folic acid in your body can cause anxiety, hence, food such as asparagus, avocado, salmon, and almond are recommended to fight stress hormones.
• Stay calm – Listen to comforting music and reading feel-good stories can help switch you to a calm mood.
• Exercise – Exercise releases endorphins that can relieve you from stress and anxiety.
• Supplement –Taking in Vitamins such as B-complex can alter mood swings.
Don’t let your stress factors contribute to your hair loss. Letting yourself succumb to anxiety will definitely show up to your follicles and this can lead to more hair loss.
Hectic schedules and pressure from work, not to mention the pollution and filth outside easily make you feel unease and, at times, irritable. Slow down a bit, have fun and relax. There’s no better way to begin with your mane.
Tip 1: The stroke of a comb can give you a soothing feeling while, at the same time, help unleash the natural oil of your hair.
Tip 2: Stay away from getting pigtails, hair weaves, braids and tight hair rollers, which can pull and stress your hair.
Tip 3: Avoid perming, straightening or coloring because they contain toxic chemicals that could cause damage to your locks.
Tip 4: Choose natural. Use NOVUHAIR topical solution. Apply liberal amount on to your scalp and hair. Massage it gently for -10 minutes to help permeate deeply from root to tip. NOVUHAIR is packed with 19 natural ingredients that help promote growth, nourishment and rejuvenation of your tress.
NOVUHAIR is available at Mercury Drug and other leading drugstores nationwide. For more information, please contact hotlines 4136570 and 09228830575 from Monday-Friday, 8:30am-5:00pm or visit www.novuhair.com

How do you celebrate the World Teacher’s Day? I am not a teacher though I when I was younger it was my dream. I know that is was my ambition because I have seen my yearbook during my Preschool Graduation and it was written there. Now I realized that it wasn’t my calling because today I am not a teacher by profession.
I am very active in my children’s school activities because I am the GPTA Treasurer (again) and the SGC Chairperson for this school year. Every year we always celebrate World Teacher’s Day with a theme for our teachers to wear something different from what they usually wear during school days. We used to have a Floral/Hawaiian Theme, we also had Retro/70s Theme and last year we had an all White Theme. And we do not allow the teachers to know what we have prepared for them. The GPTA and SGC officers works hand in hand to provide a surprise celebration for the teachers every year.
This year we asked our teachers to come in their Disney Inspired Costume or Attire. We had a program for the morning, a sumptuous lunch then parlor games for the whole afternoon. Our teachers are so happy during our celebration and we are so glad that they were. We appreciate the hard work that they do every day to educate our children and the children of the next generation.
Before I forget this year’s theme is “Gurong Pilipino; Kaakbay sa Progreso”.
