This is the only reason I can still work at a daycare.

This was recommended to me by another parent, and it seemed to do the trick pretty well. The combs are great and the stuff seemed strong enough because it just had to be applied once. If my son got lice again, I would use this again.

Dont waste your time and money on generic or store brands . I used cvs lice shampoo, follewed instructions , the lice were still alive after the shampoo. had to go get Nix.... i know it works...4 grown kids, 6 grandbabies, ive got plenty of experience... but still learning dont try to save a couple of dollars. it ends up costing twice as much. go with Nix.

I am NOT happy with Nixx at all! Yes, for the first treatment, it's fine but it does NOT kill the eggs as the box says! I treated my daughter with Nixx 5 times!!! And, we still have eggs that are hatching! I am beside myself as we have torn our house apart - vacuuming, spraying with RC spray, washing in hot and drying in hot, putting items in the freezer, and washing my daughter's bedding EVERYDAY to try and keep the bugs from spreading. NIxx needs to change their packaging so it doesn't say that it kills eggs, because it doesn't! I would like my money back as we have spent over $100 on Nixx alone and are now buying a different product. Altogether it's cost us more than $300 thus far with sprays, new product, etc. and that doesn't include hot water bill costs or detergent costs! We have done EVERYTHING right, no conditioner on the hair, etc. and the bugs keep coming back with Nixx because the eggs don't die! A VERY frustrated and upset mom

Useless product. Have used it 6 times. Eggs keep hatching. Save your money and don't purchase it. We are now planning to have them professionally removed.

I have used many brands and while this product smells great and was easy to use, it DOES NOT kill the eggs and it is very frustrating! Save your money!

Not very happy. after being very careful to saturate every strand with medication and to section her hair and go through every strand removing all eggs, 24 hours later we found 20 more eggs. I read that one adult lays about 4 a day, so I was very upset thinking that this medication didn't even work :(

My 2 girls (now grown) have had lice many many times. I blame their long thick hair and happy summers at camp. I HAVE TRIED EVERYTHING. NIX DOESN'T WORK. None of them do. Lice become resistant to Nix (and all the others), Lindane is toxic. ONLY ONE THING WORKS-- combing every last strand of hair with a superior lice comb. I was given a free Nisska (german) comb by a "lice lady" because I was such a great customer. There are businesses like hers where patient women spend hours combing all the nits out. I have spent over $1000 ridding one daughter of lice. Only repeated combing with the special metal combs works. Honestly. Paying someone to do it was hard but alleviated much of the anxiety and panic. I'd love to offer counseling to parents.

I used the Nix shampoo cream on my son, followed the directions, left the shampoo cream in for 10 minutes as directed. Had my son then sleep in a new bed, new sheets. The next morning, lice that were still alive. This product does not seem to work.

Didn't work. Live lice were still in my daughters hair after using lice cream and combing all of her hair. The cream should have killed all the live lice and the eggs. I do not recommend this to anyone.I wish I had read the reviews before wasting my money.

I was recommended this by Chrissy Parillo and it did a good job.

This worked really well, but before I could get to the store I smothered her hair with cooking oil and that seemed to really do the trick with the adult lice. I will be using this for any reoccurring problems in the future.
