Step 1 - Check
Once you are sure your child has lice, it's time to break out the Nix®.
Step 2 - Apply
Spread Nix® to hair, completely saturating hair and scalp. Ensure coverage behind ears and on nape of neck. Leave solution in hair for 10 minutes.
Step 3 - Wash
Nix® is safe and non-toxic but care should be taken to avoid contact with eyes. Protect eyes with wash cloth or towel. Follow instructions about how to properly wash the product from the hair.
Step 4 - Remove
Use a 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.
Step 5 - Home Defense
After washing all bedding, hats, clothing and stuffed animals, make sure to rid your furniture, carpets and car seats of lice effectively and conveniently with the Nix Lice Killing Spray.
Step 6 - Prevent
When lice are no longer present, use Nix® Lice Prevention Daily Leave-In Spray to keep lice away.
Spray liberally onto washed towel-dried hair or dry hair up to two times daily.
