Nix® Crème Rinse

Nix® Crème Rinse

1-step Easy Application

Treat & Wash Out With Regular Shampoo

From the #1 Pediatrician & Pharmacist recommended brand comes Nix® Crème Rinse, designed to kill lice and their eggs and prevent reinfestation for up to 14 days after initial application

  • Step 1 – Treat

    • Wash hair with a shampoo without conditioner. Do not use a shampoo that contains a conditioner or a conditioner alone since this may decrease the activity of Nix®. Rinse with water and towel dry hair
    • Apply Nix® Crème Rinse and saturate the hair and scalp, behind the ears and at the back of the neck
    • Keep Nix® out of the eyes. Leave in for 10 minutes to eliminate lice and their eggs (nits) and rinse with warm water
      Insider Tip - You can use a washcloth or towel to prevent Nix from getting in the eyes

    Step 2 – Comb

    • Remove lice and eggs (nits) with the included comb. Clean the comb completely as you go by wiping the nits from the comb with a tissue and throw away the tissue in a sealed plastic bag to prevent the lice from coming back
    • Rinse hair thoroughly with warm water after removing lice and eggs (nits)
