Step 3

Completely cover the scalp and the hair closest to the scalp, then apply outwards toward the end of hair. Use only the amount needed to completely cover the hair and scalp, up to one entire tube. Then discard the tube and any remaining lotion.

Step 4

Rub Sklice throughout the hair. It’s important to completely cover the entire head so that all lice and eggs are exposed to the lotion. Make sure that each hair is coated from the scalp to the tip.

Step 5

Allow Sklice to stay on hair and scalp for 10 minutes after it’s been applied. Start timing with a timer or clock after you have completely covered the hair and scalp. You or anyone who helps you apply Sklice should wash their hands after application.

  • The tube is intended to be used only once—throw away any portion you don’t use.
