BREAK THE CYCLE ... 3 steps ... 3 times ... 3 weeks
Step 1 – TREAT
Quick and Safe. Head lice live in the hair and feed by sucking blood from the scalp. So the head lice formulation must make contact to all parts of the hair.
This treatment removes the adult climbers. Repeat the treatment in 7 daysto remove the juvenile lice which have hatched from the eggs over the intervening 6 days. After a further 7 days, repeat the detection process to establish if further treatment is necessary.
Recheck in a further 7 days. Repeat every 7 days as necessary.
Put a reminder in your calendar or phone to maximize your opportunity to break the cycle.
In between shampoo treatments use NitWizz Combing Conditioner (Step 2) to rid hair of Lice, eggs (nits) and newly hatched Juveniles.
Step 2 – COMB
Simple and thorough. It is widely thought that Conditioner stuns head lice by blocking their respiratory tracts.
If you are satisfied that infestation has been removed, usually after 3 weeks, you may like to establish a preventative strategy to defend against re infestation.
Step 3 - DEFEND
Fast and effective. A preventative strategy will defend against further reinfestation. This is particularly recommended if there are on-going cases of head lice in your child’s class or peer group.
Apply a generous amount of NitWizz Gel into the palm of your hand. Massage it through the hair, down to the scalp. Ensure that all hair strands are covered with a layer of NitWizz Gel. Leave in hair for the duration of the day and rinse thoroughly when having a bath or shower.
Apply at least 6 sprays to dry hair per application once a day. Make sure to also spray behind the ears and the base of the neck.
The NitWizz Spray can be used as an initial knockout and as protection when applied on pillow, hats, clothing and bedding.
Regular use of Tea tree oil based Shampoo* also acts as a deterrent for head lice re infestation.
