Questions about Quit Nits:

I have completed the treatment but I can still see live lice in the hair. What should I do?

Sometimes the treatment has not had sufficient contact time with live lice and they appear to move quite slowly. These lice are dying and should be removed with the fingernails.

I can still see eggs attached to the hair the following day. Has the treatment failed?

Not at all, the remaining ‘eggs’ or nits which are visible are either dead or empty shells. Simply remove with the fingernails.

I used Quit Nits treatment but my child came home from school re-infested two days later. Is Quit Nits safe to use again?

Quit Nits does not contain any toxic pesticides so it is safe to use as frequently as required.

The kit does not contain a bedding spray. Why not?

Head lice can only feed on a human host and must feed hourly to remain hydrated. About an hour after being separated from the host they begin to dehydrate and become ill. After 24 hours, they will die. Simply laundering and drying head scarves, hats or pillows is sufficient to kill lice. Using bedding sprays only increases you child’s exposure to pesticides.

If I’m pregnant or breastfeeding can I use your product?

Unlike pesticide based products, Quit Nits products do not contain any ingredient that is suspected of causing health problems for pregnant or nursing mothers. The products should be safe for use except in circumstances where there is a history of allergy to the active ingredients. If in doubt, consult your doctor.

Why should the cap be removed overnight when using the Advance Treatment product?

Although it is important to keep the Advance Treatment wet, it is essential to remove the shower cap from your young children to avoid risk of suffocation while sleeping.

I have used head lice treatments before and the hair was left dry and brittle. Will this happen with Quit Nits?

Quit Nits products will leave the hair soft and shiny just like a regular conditioner.

The Quit Nits Difference

A Natural, Non-toxic Head Lice Treatment

Head lice. The words strike fear in the hearts of parents everywhere. Children are sent home from school as parents are confronted with how to treat the condition.

In 1997, Leanne Preston, single mother of three, living in Margaret River, Australia, was no different. So when one of her daughters came home from school with head lice, she was horrified to find that the leading head lice treatments contained toxic chemicals, so harmful they can be deadly. Concerned, she started researching an alternative way to get rid of head lice. By mixing essential oils, Preston discovered and patented a new natural compound, now a key active ingredient in her company’s lice product line. What resulted from months of investigation was a non-toxic head lice remedy with natural actives from the Australian bush, which proved safe and effective. During an in vitro trial, Quit Nits head lice treatments were even found to be more effective than most other treatments.

A decade later, the Quit Nits anti head lice products, which are bestsellers in Australia and in Europe, are now available at one of America’s biggest drug store chains, CVS — good news for the 6 to 12 million Americans who become infested with head lice every year and now have the option to choose an effective safe alternative to the current toxic treatments.

• Low allergy formula
• No combing of hair required
