Directions Adults and children 2 months old and older Inspect • Check each household member with a magnifying glass in bright light for lice/nits (eggs) • Look for tiny nits near scalp, beginning at back of neck and behind ears • Examine small sections of hair at a time • Unlike dandruff which moves when touched, nits stick to the hair • If either lice or nits are found, treat with Nix® Crème Rinse 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. • Towel dry hair so it is damp but not wet • Shake the bottle of Nix® well • Completely saturate the hair and scalp with Nix®. Begin to apply Nix® behind the ears and at the back of the neck. • Keep Nix® out of the eyes. Protect the eyes with a washcloth or towel. • Leave Nix® on the hair for 10 minutes, but no longer • Rinse with warm water • Towel dry hair and comb out tangles • If live lice are seen seven days or more after the first treatment, a second treatment should be given Remove Lice/Nits • Remove nits by combing the hair with the special small tooth comb provided. Remaining nits may be removed by hand (using a throw-away glove), or cutting the nits out. • Use the nit comb provided and make sure the hair remains slightly damp while removing nits • If the hair dries during combing, dampen it slightly with water • Part the hair into 4 sections. Work on one section at a time. Longer hair may take more time (1-2 hours). • Start at the top of the head on the section you have picked • With one hand, lift a 1-2 inch wide strand of hair. Get the teeth of the comb as close to the scalp as possible and comb with a firm, even motion away from the scalp to the end of the hair. • Use clips to pin back each strand of hair after you have combed out the nits • Clean the comb completely as you go. Wipe 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. • After combing, recheck the entire head for nits and repeat combing if necessary • Check the affected head daily to remove any nits that you might have missed
