Below are some of the most common questions you might have. Of course, if you have any further concerns you should always seek the advise from your health care professional.
Sometimes the treatment has not had sufficient contact or contact time with the live lice and they appear to move quite slowly. They can be easily removed with the included nit comb.
Louse eggs are attached to the hair shaft with a glue like protein called chitin, this is sometimes hard to remove and will over release over a period of time. If there are only a few eggs and cases in the hair they can be removed either with the fingernails or with a fine toothed nit comb.
Quitnits products do not contain ingredients that are known to cause asthma attacks. If there is a history of allergy to essential oils consult your health care provider for advice.
Quitnits does not contain malathion or permethrin so it can be used as frequently as required.
Quitnits products will leave the hair soft and shiny just like a normal hair conditioner.
Insects are attracted to humans by different pathways but it is generally thought that they “prefer” certain people due to their pheromones.
Quitnits Defence Spray can be used after any brand of head lice treatment.
Not necessarily, the important thing is to diagnose first, if there is evidence of lice then you should treat otherwise regular inspection should be enough to keep the family lice free.
