NEW YORK, March 3, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Zippity Doo's™, the fast-growing line of lice-preventive hair care products for children, is now available in Canada at Shoppers Drug Mart, the country's leading retailer of beauty, health and pharmacy products.

Zippity Doo's (ZippityDoos.ca) provides families with affordable daily use lice prevention, eliminating harsh and costly treatments as well as the anguish and hassle associated with head lice infestation.  The popularity of Zippity Doo's has grown rapidly with parents who are concerned about lice prevention for their children.  Featuring natural ingredients, the line is pediatrician approved, laboratory tested, paraben-free and sodium laureth sulfate-free.  Zippity Doo's offering includes a shampoo, conditioner, styling gel, leave-in detangler, as well as a surface spray, that parents can use on their children's hair and more so on items they frequently share – hats, towels, brushes, combs - before they ever get head lice. 

"Head lice are a growing problem for children of all ages and economic classes that need diligent attention from mothers and fathers," said Dr. Lawrence Rosen, founder of the Whole Child Center (wholechildcenter.org).  "Zippity Doo's is an excellent, non-toxic choice for parents concerned about preventing an infestation of lice in their children's hair."

"Our expansion into Canada through Shoppers Drug Mart stores across the country is an important step in establishing Zippity Doo's as the leader in lice prevention hair care products," said Linda Surkis of Laurus Enterprises LLC, the makers of Zippity Doo's.  "Lice know no geographical boundaries and we know that parents in Canada need to feel confident their children will be free of head lice."
