How to Treat Lice?

If They're Lice, It's Time for Nix®

Once you are sure that your child has lice, it's time to break out the Nix® Ultra.

Step 1 — Apply

Spread Nix® Ultra solution on dry hair, completely saturating hair and scalp. Ensure coverage behind ears and on nape of neck. Leave solution in hair for 10 minutes.

Nix® Ultra solution is safe and non-toxic but care should be taken to avoid contact with eyes. Protect eyes with wash cloth or towel.

Step 2 — Wash

Wash hair thoroughly with regular shampoo. Do not use conditioner or shampoo that contains conditioner. Nix® Ultra solution conditions hair for easy combing with Nix® Lice Removal Comb. Towel dry hair.

Step 3 — Remove

Use the Nix® Lice Removal Comb to remove nits and lice.

Part hair into four sections. Comb one section at a time. Start at top of head. Lift a 1-2 inch wide section of hair. Place teeth of comb as close to scalp as possible and comb with firm, even motion away from scalp to the end of the hair. Use clips to pin back each section of combed hair.

Clean comb during use by wiping lice and nits onto clean tissue or dry paper towel. Discard tissue or paper towel into sealable plastic bag. After combing, recheck the entire head for lice and nits. Seal and discard plastic bag containing nits and lice.

Check hair after 7 days. If lice or nits are present, repeat steps 1-3.

That's it! With the Nix® Ultra, it's just three easy steps to be lice free!
