Removing Head Lice and Nits: (To effectively stop head lice infestation, all nits must be removed.) Nix Creme Rinse kills head lice but does not remove the nits (eggs); so combing is needed to effectively remove the eggs. While straight hair is usually readily combed with the smaller tooth side, tight curls, snarls and tangles should first be removed by using the wider tooth side. Hair should be cleaned and tangle-free before attempting to use the smaller tooth side of the comb.
Follow these steps for effective removal of the eggs. Remove nits (eggs) by combing the hair using the nit comb provided. Make sure the hair remains slightly damp while combing out the nits (eggs). Combing will be easier if you apply Nix Gel to the dampened hair. If hair dries during combing, dampen it slightly with water and/or Nix Gel. Part the hair into four 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 (eggs). Clean the comb completely as you go. Wipe the nits (eggs) 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 (eggs) and repeat combing if necessary. After repeated combing, remaining nits may be removed by hand (using a throw-away glove) or by cutting the nits out. Check the affected head daily to remove any nits (eggs) that you might have missed.
