How much TLC will I need to treat the whole family?

  • People with lice will need 5 treatments of TLC and all others in the house will need 2 treatments.
  • If you have shoulder length, medium thick hair; you will get 3 to 4 treatments out of 1 bottle. You will need 1.5 bottles to do 5 treatments. (Refer to the diagram on this page)
  • If you have very thick  or longer hair than the guide indicates you may need twice as much to thoroughly saturate your hair.
  • TLC will keep for a long time. Seal the cap tightly on any unused portion and place in a cool, dark cabinet/closet until needed again. When you least expect it lice may strike again and you will be prepared!

How much TLC do I need?

TLC works by killing all the live bugs on your head each time you do a treatment.

You need enough to coat every strand of hair from root to end.

Treat days 1, 2, 3, 5 and 7 if you have lice and days 1 and 7 if you live in the house to kill any stray bugs. Even if you do not find anything. They will hide in your hair and eventually get off and go to the family members they do like and your infestation will continue!

*If you have very thick or very long hair, you will require more TLC.

Directions for Application:

Apply lice shampoo generously to DRY hair, thoroughly saturating hair with TLC from scalp to tip of hair.

On average, if you have shoulder length medium thick hair you can get 3 to 4 uses out of one bottle. Keep in mind you will need 5 uses.

As you apply the shampoo no lather will occur. You are just coating the hair.

Leave shampoo on hair for a minimum of 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, add water and work into a lather. Rinse shampoo out of hair and apply conditioner or detangler to ease combing. Use lice comb to remove nits after each treatment.

Recommended Use:Lice shampoo recommended use

Shampoo must remain on hair for a minimum of 30 minutes for maximum effectiveness.

Family members with visible evidence of lice: must use TLC 5 times over a 7 day period, Days 1, 2, 3, 5 and 7.

Family and friends exposed to lice, but with no visible evidence: must apply TLC on Days 1 and 7.

How To Remove Nits:

First treat hair with TLC Shampoo!

To begin combing out the nits, you will need a location in the your home with good light, daylight is the best source but not direct sunlight.

Start the comb out on the back of the head at the nape of the neck and work your way up.

Use the included comb to make a quarter inch part across the nape of the neck, clip remaining hair on top of the head.

Spritz the parted off section with water or diluted detangler. Pull the comb through this section repeatedly until no nits are found.

Add another quarter inch section, spritz again and comb new section adding to previous section.

The more hair in the comb gives the comb traction to pull the nit off the hair shaft. Repeat these steps until you have done the entire head. This routine needs to be done after each shampoo treatment.

Ingredients: Deionized Water, Cocamide DEA, Glycerin, Propylene Glycol, Germaben.

Active Ingredients: Tea Tree Oil, Spearmint and Lavender.   

Cleaning Guide for the House:

While you are treating family members with TLC Lice Shampoo, you will also need to treat your home. All you need is a vacuum, a freezer and a dryer to treat everything in the house. Also required are resealable plastic bags and large plastic garbage bags.

Day 1 – VACUUM the entire house, every room even rooms you might not normally go into. Vacuum all furniture, hard floors, carpeted floors, seats and interior of all cars. (if its summer and/or above 90 degrees, you will kill the lice by parking your car in the sun with windows rolled up everyday of the 7 day protocol). Be sure to vacuum the area where you keep combs and brushes e.g. drawers, baskets.

FREEZER—Place all brushes, combs, all hair accessories and baseball caps in plastic resealable bags and then put those in the freezer. The freezer will kill any lice that may be on those items. Leave in freezer for the full 7 day protocol, the items they should be in for a minimum 4 hours before using. Use these items to style hair and as soon as you have finished put back into the freezer and they will be ready when you need them again, that night or the next morning. There is no need to boil, soak in alcohol or throw these items away; the freezer will do all the work for you thus saving you time.

DRYER—In the bedroom of the person or persons with lice, put their bedding: top sheet, fitted sheet, pillow, pillow case, comforter or blanket, whatever is on the bed everyday goes into the dryer EVERYDAY of the 7 day protocol for 30 minutes on high heat. No need to wash any items as the wash cycle is not hot enough, long enough to kill the lice. Place stuffed animals, decorative pillows and decorative throw blankets in large plastic garbage bags, tie off the top and leave untouched in a spare bedroom, back of a closet or a garage for 2 weeks. The 2 weeks is the life cycle of a louse, if it lays an egg/nit and that egg hatches. This whole process ends up being 2 weeks. (If your child has a favorite stuffed animal or 2 that they are very attached to, put those items in the dryer with the bedding everyday of the 7 day protocol)

The clothing worn by the people with lice should go directly in with the dirty clothes when removed and not put back in the closet until they have been washed and dried for 30 minutes on high heat.

Hair towels are used only once and then washed and dried 30 minutes on high heat. You can also just place these in the dryer on a daily bases for the 7 day protocol if not soiled and requiring laundering. 30 minutes in the dyer on high heat is a key household treatment.

Backpacks are emptied daily upon arrival home from school and dried for 30 minutes on high heat. Backpacks are a great way for the lice to come home from school with your child!!!! This process is the only one that you should extend past the 7 day treatment. We see infestations lasting on average 2 to 4 month.    

Days 4 and 7, vacuum the areas you and your family spend most of their time: the sofa, floor around the sofa; dining chairs and flooring around the table; computer chair and floor around computer; bedroom of the persons with lice and the bathroom they use.

Remember, bedding of the people with lice go into the dryer everyday of the 7 day protocol for 30 minutes on high heat. And all brushes, combs and hair accessories are kept in freezer, only to be taken out, used and then put right back into the freezer until after the final treatment on day 7.

After the seventh day you can resume normal activities because all the nits have hatched, have been combed out and all the lice are dead.
