Quit Nits Offers Effective, Non-Toxic Solution to Head Lice -- Quick, Pesticide-Free Treatment Ideal for Back to School Season

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - Jul 27, 2011) - Spread by close person-to-person contact, head lice are a fact of life for millions of Americans each year. As the school year begins, parents need not reach for harsh, toxic chemicals to kill nits and eggs. Effective and non-toxic treatments such as Quit Nits Complete Head Lice Kit can kill head lice and prevent re-infestation without exposing children, babies and pregnant or nursing mothers to pesticide risks.

Quit Nits, a treatment made with natural active ingredients and distributed in North America by Hyland's, Inc. (, works safely and effectively to kill head lice and nits. The Quit Nits Complete Lice Kit contains a 4 fl. oz. bottle of Advance Lice Treatment Cream to eliminate head lice and their eggs, and one easy-to-use Everyday Preventative Spray (1 fl. oz.) to prevent re-infestation.

The Quit Nits treatment involves two simple steps: (1) apply the treatment cream thoroughly to dry hair, and leave it on, covered with the included cap for four hours, and (2) wash the treatment cream out. No further combing is required to remove live lice, although a comb is included in the kit to help remove dead lice and nits from the hair. The fragrant Everyday Preventative Spray can be used prior to exposure as a proactive measure, and after infestation to avoid reoccurrence and to condition hair.

A short video explaining how to use the products can be found at All packaging is in English and Spanish.

"What makes Quit Nits Kit and Spray so unique is its homeopathic formulation of natural ingredients. The plant-based ingredients in the product have a long history of use against lice," said John Found, Technical Director for Quit Nits.

Quit Nits products are made with certified natural active ingredients that contain no chemical pesticides, and have a low allergy formula. They are safe for use by pregnant and nursing mothers, and for repeated use.
