Check every day: The usual plan is to have somebody remove every nit (egg) he can find after the first Nix (permethrin) shampoo. Checking one's hair and head for lice or nits, every day, will prevent lice from gaining a foothold again. Repeating the Nix (permethrin) shampoo in 1 week helps. As long as any and all nits (lice eggs) are quickly removed each day, the lice problem goes away. After 1 month of checking, one can just check weekly. ...Read more
