Rid or Nix? Should I use?

19 August

No. Do not use rid or Nix as a head lice removal treatment. Why? Because rid or nix do nothing to kill the lice eggs, and the bugs have developed resistance to these pesticides (so you will only kill a few of the bugs).  Once you rinse out rid or nix the healthy eggs(nits) are still there and waiting to hatch. Even if you follow the rid or nix instructions and reapply the pesticide shampoo 7-10 days later, that might only kill a small percentage of the hatched bugs The next day the next batch of nits will hatch and those bugs will be fine.
