CLOSED Giveaway: Nix Lice Treatment

Nix® is the #1 pharmacist recommended treatment for the removal and prevention of head lice. Not only does Nix® kill head lice and their eggs fast, it protects against re-infestation for up to 14 days, longer than any other lice treatment. Additionally, Nix® Lice Treatment is completely safe, as it has been approved by the FDA for use on children over 2 months of age. Formerly available by prescription only, Nix® is now sold over-the-counter at full prescription strength, which works with a single application.

Nix Créme Rinse
Kill lice and their eggs quickly and effectively with a single application of Nix® Crème Rinse. As the #1 pharmacist recommended over-the-counter lice treatment1, Nix® Crème Rinse used to be available only by prescription. Its proven ingredients allow it to work fast and prevent re-infestation for up to 14 days—that’s longer than any other lice removal product. With Nix® Crème Rinse, you can skip past the anxiety associated with head lice and jump to results.

#1 pharmacist recommended brand

Single application treatment
Prevents re-infestation up to 14 days after initial application (longer than any competing lice removal product)
Safe for children as young as 2 months of age

• all household members should be checked by another person for lice and/or nits (eggs)
• use a magnifying glass in bright light to help you see the lice and nits (eggs)
• use a tool, such as a comb or two unsharpened pencils to lift and part the hair
• look for tiny nits near the scalp, beginning at the back of the neck and behind the ears
• small sections of hair (1-2 inches wide) should be examined at a time
• unlike dandruff, nits stick to the hair. Dandruff should move when lightly touched.
• if either lice or nits (eggs) are found, treat with Nix Creme Rinse

• 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
• 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

A quick note I was also sent a box but of course couldn't review the product. But in my area I know Nix is always used for the treatment of lice. It's a trusted brand that should probably be your first choice if you are new at taking care of kids with lice.
