"Among many other things, back to school season is the peak season for lice infestations. While every parent would like to believe it won’t happen to their child, the truth is that it might. We would like to prepare you for the phone call from the school nurse by introducing you to Nix® Lice Treatment. Nix® is the #1 pharmacist recommended treatment for the removal and prevention of head lice. Not only does Nix® kill head lice and their eggs fast, it protects against re-infestation for up to 14 days, longer than any other lice treatment. Additionally, Nix® Lice Treatment is completely safe, as it has been approved by the FDA for use on children over 2 months of age. Formerly available by prescription only, Nix® is now sold over-the-counter at full prescription strength, which works with a single application.
As with many things, knowledge is a key weapon in the fight against lice. All parents want to protect their children from an itchy, uncomfortable infestation, but without reliable information and effective products, the fight will be an uphill battle. Recently, the makers of Nix Lice Treatment partnered with the publishers of Parents Magazine to develop “Heads Up! The Facts of Lice,” an informational magazine aiming to arm parents with the tools to detect, eliminate and prevent lice. School nurses nation-wide have already received the magazine, and now your readers can too! This brochure is available for download in English and Spanish at www.factsoflice.net."
What we thought: Fortunately, we didn't have to use our review bottle of Nix (yet) but I remember it being the go-to product for my mom to use on us when we were little and came home with head lice. There were 4 of us girls, all with hair down to our bottoms and I'm sure it was quite a pain for my mom to have to treat us all, but Nix made the unpleasant task a little less arduous for everyone involved. I like knowing I am prepared for the dreaded phone call from the school nurse with a box of Nix tucked safely away in the medicine cabinet:) ABCD Diaries gives Nix an A+!
