Alternative to Dangerous Pesticides! Dear Fellow
Consumer,Thank you for using Non-Toxic Nit Kit with Metal Head
Lice Medi-Comb and 5xMagnifier. While head lice are more of a
nuisance than a danger, conventional chemical treatments are
dangerous! Due to the public outcry for safe and effective
alternatives, Well-in-Hand® Herbals has developed this
effective, easy-to-use preparation with it's super-fine-toothed
Medi-Comb for the safety and convenience of your family. The Nit
Kit is a fast-acting, pleasant-smelling, Rosemary & Mint Scent
formula so you can catch mature lice and their nits (lice eggs)
and leave hair shiny and gorgeous! What are Head Lice?
Head lice are parasitic insects that live on the human head.
Pediculus Humanus Capitus are tiny but can be seen by the human
eye. They live among hair and draw blood from the scalp. Lice
lay their eggs on hair shafts. How could MY family have lice?
Lice aren't particular. They equally enjoy hosts with squeaky
clean and dirty hair. One louse can multiply into hundreds of
lice within 3 weeks. They spread by direct contact. To prevent
having head lice from crawling into your family's, avoid sharing
head gear, car seats, linens, barrettes, curlers, sleeping bags,
combs, brushes, barrettes, curlers and clothing. Do we have
lice? Watch for itching and scratching. Then check heads! Use
the 5x magnifier to help see the critters, red bite marks or
scratch marks can be seen on the scalp and neck. In severe
cases, a child may develop swollen glands in the neck or under
the arms. Checking regularly for lice will make their
elimination that much easier. How to check heads: Lice run
from light, so it is hard to see them especially in blonde hair.
The nits are whitish (empty nits) or brownish (live nits). They
are shaped like ovals the size of sesame seeds. Use the 5x
magnifier to help see their nits near the scalp all over the
entire head and especially behind the ears, the top of the head
and the back of the neck. Nits are firmly cemented onto hair and
will not wash out by shampooing. If they flake off, you are
probably looking at dandruff. What to do if you if you find
Head Lice: Use the Nit Kit and follow directions on the bottle.
Repeat treatment in 5 and again in 10 days. As lice are highly
contagious, checking and treating the entire family is strongly
recommended. Vacuum carpets, couches, beds, pillows, chairs and
car seats. Wash clothes and linens in very hot water (130°F).
Additional contact with lice will cause re-infestation. The
Medi-Comb may be boiled for reuse.
