Paranix is easy to use and is very effective. Before treatment it is best to keep the following things in mind:
Check the whole family. It doesn’t make sense to treat one infested member of the family if you are not going to do the same to the other (infested) members. In a very short period of time everyone will have lice once again. That’s not the idea! Click here to see the best way to check for lice.
Treat in two phases: if you perform the treatment today, repeat it after 9 or 10 days. No more, no less. This period of time has to do with the life cycle of the louse. The first time you kill all living lice, the second time you kill the young lice that hatched during the ten-day period. At that moment the young lice are not mature enough to lay eggs. This enables you to get rid of them completely.
Don’t forget to disinfect the area by washing clothing, brushes, pillows and bedding that was in direct contact with the head at 60°C. Vacuum the whole house and the car, then throw the bag away.

Four people can be treated (= 8 treatments) with one Paranix spray. The number of people that can be treated with one spray also depends on the length and thickness of the hair to be treated. For people with thick and long hair (longer than shoulder length), one Paranix spray is good for the treatment of 1 to 2 people.
What about resistance?
Lice cannot develop resistance to Paranix because it works in a non-chemical manner. It is possible that treated people are reinfested with lice through contact with untreated people, for example at school. In this event, you can use Paranix a second time. There is no risk and it will be just as effective.
Don’t regard an itchy head as proof that someone has lice. Eczema can also cause itching.
Nits in hair don’t necessarily indicate a lice infestation. Nits remain in hair for weeks or even months after the lice have disappeared.
