To apply the shampoo, follow the directions on the package, including:

  •  
    A
     
    Protect Child's Eyes —Use towels to protect child's eyes from treatment and prevent clothes from getting wet.
  •  
    B
     
    Apply RID® Lice Killing Shampoo —Apply thoroughly to DRY HAIR or other affected area. Wetting the hair dilutes the treatment making it less effective.
    • See Usage Guidelines chart below to estimate how much product you will need.
    • For head lice, first apply behind the ears and to the back of the neck. Lice can crawl up and down the shaft of the hair very quickly so it is important to apply the treatment from the roots to the ends of the hair.
