- Apply a bonding agent – this can be coconut oil or Nit Zapping™ Clenz Cream. This helps loosen the lice from the hair and can also help suffocate some of the active lice.
- Mix with essential oils – tea tree or anise oil both work fine (note: skip this step if you are using our Nit-Zapping™ Clenz Cream. It already contains tea tree oil pre-mixed at the proper amount; no need to add more!).
- Leave in for a few hours, then comb out the lice and pick the nits. This is the most important step – be sure to purchase a special lice comb for this – regular combs are not fine or strong enough to comb out active lice.
- Wash the hair with a cleansing shampoo. Again, no need to add harmful chemicals here; a shampoo with lots of essential oils works just fine!
- Repeat as necessary.
