Detailed Instructions for Nit Picker Pre-Shampoo Combing Solution

[1] Part dry hair and apply a small amount of the Nit-Picker to the scalp beginning at the nape and behind the ears. Massage Nit-Picker through the roots of the hair and comb through the midlengths and ends. Apply small droplets of Nit-Picker to the hair as required to enable thorough coverage of the hair. Pay careful attention not to get Nit-Picker Oil into the eyes as this will cause stinging (flush thoroughly with cool water if eye contact does occur).

[2] Once a thin film has been achieved on the entire hair use a fine toothed comb and begin to comb the hair from roots to ends. This will ensure that any head lice trying to escape the solution by travelling up the hair shaft will be removed from the hair.

[3] Wipe head lice and eggs from the fine toothed comb on a tissue as you proceed through the hair. Head lice and eggs will die when removed from the hair within a short time. Leave Nit-Picker on the hair for up to twenty minutes. Repeat the combing procedure at regular intervals throughout this application time.

[4] Use your fingernail to remove visible eggs on the hair shaft then rinse the hair using warm water.

[5] Lightly shampoo with Nit Ninja Daily Defence Shampoo to cleanse off eco.kid Nit-Picker Oil, follow with Nit Ninja Daily Defence Conditioner. Use these products to prevent headlice infestation in the future.

[6] Repeat the above procedure before every shampoo to ensure maximum effectiveness in head-lice infestation prevention.

Whether there is any pre-known sensitivity to any essential oils or not, a patch test should be trialed prior to the application of eco.kid Nit-Picker. Find a small patch of skin behind the ear and apply a small quantity of the product to be tested. Observe the patch for redness or irritation within the first few minutes. If no adverse signs are observed this will generally indicate that no sensitivity exists.

To use this product on sensitive skin, mix 50% Nit-Picker Combing Oil with 50% Vegetable Oil. Repeat the patch test procedure
described above and continue to dilute oils as described if sensitivity
persists. If irritation persists at a diluted level of 5:1 (vegetable oil to Nit-Picker) then we do not recommend using Nit-Picker Oil.

Water swells the hair shaft making lice egg removal very difficult.
Use on dry hair only for maximum assistance in lice egg removal.

Why repeat Nit Picking treatments every seven days?
