How to Use
Novokid treatment is a short, dry, and easy treatment, 100% natural, free from chemicals, pesticides, and silicon.
An innovative evaporation technology to treat head lice and nits, which vaporizes a natural plant-based formula containing vinegar and rosemary oil.
The Novokid treatment is completely dry and does not require hair-washing after its completion.
Before starting: Carefully read the user manual located in the capsule pack before starting using the NOVOKID lice and egg treatment starter kit.
Please read all warnings and use the product strictly according to recommended safety precautions.
NOVOKID lice and egg treatment device is suitable for use with all types and lengths of hair, for use from the age of 4 and older, under adult supervision.
The treatment is intended for external use only.
1. Base conditions
Before starting treatment, the hair and scalp are completely dry, the hair is loose and not treated with any cream, gel, oil, or other hair products, and does not have any hairpins or accessories. If the hair is wet, or if the treated person is sweating, the hair and any sweat residue must be thoroughly dried off the scalp using a hairdryer.
Treatment should be performed in a dry, cool, well-ventilated location.
2. Inserting batteries
Before using the device, use a screwdriver to open the battery compartment (located at the bottom of the device), and insert four AA 1.5V batteries.
3. Wearing the cap
The treatment cap should be worn on the head with the caption BACK located exactly at the back of the head. Make sure that all hair ends and the ears are completely covered by the cap, securely tighten the silicone band in front of the cap on the forehead and in front of the ears.
4. Before connecting the capsule
Before attaching the capsule to the cap, gently squeeze the cap and completely drain it from all the air contained in it. This step is vital to the success of the treatment and to maintain the maximum concentration of active substance inside the cap so that it is not diluted with air. This is essential to the success of the treatment!
The Novokid cap is reusable and can be cleaned with a wet wipe.
5. Connecting the capsule
Take one capsule from the capsule case and screw it into the connector on the cap until a “click” is heard, indicating that the capsule has been properly pierced. Examine the connection and make sure that the connection was done properly and that the screwing is complete. Next, attach the other end of the capsule to the connector on the tube end. Another “click” should be heard, indicating that the capsule was pierced by the connector on its other side. Now the capsule is pierced at both ends while connecting the cap to the tube, and treatment can be started.
6. Turn on the device
Press the button on the NOVOKID device briefly, the green light will turn on. During treatment, the device will operate and inflate the cap several times. While waiting in between inflations, the green light will flash.
Once the treatment is complete, the green light will turn off. If a red light comes on, the batteries should be replaced.
Occasionally, a slight feeling of itching and tingling may occur during the treatment. Such sensations are expected and indicate that the treatment is working. The need to scratch the head is a positive sign, indicating that the active ingredients are effectively reaching all parts of the scalp. Nonetheless, try to avoid scratching the head while the treatment is on.
7. Treatment duration
The treatment is approximately ten minutes long. When the treatment ends the green light will turn off. We recommend waiting a few additional minutes before removing the cap to maximize the effect.
8. After treatment
Once the treatment is completed, it is recommended to leave the cap and active substance vapors on the head for a few more minutes, to increase efficiency and the exposure of the lice and eggs to the vinegar and rosemary vapors.
Then, remove the cap from the head by gently pulling it back, while making sure to avoid any contact with the eyes. The treatment is dry and the hair does not get wet at all. Don’t worry, the vinegar and rosemary vapor odor will evaporate and disappear within about 15 minutes after the treatment.
9. Disconnecting the capsule
Unscrew the capsule from the cap and tube and discard it. Note that the connectors remain attached to the cap and tube so that they are not accidentally thrown in the trash.
We recommend putting the used capsule in a bag before its disposal, to avoid any odor in the home.
Please note: Connecting and disconnecting of the capsule from the connectors are performed with a circular movement. When disconnecting the capsule, make sure that the connectors remain connected to the cap and device.
10. Disposing the capsule
At the end of the treatment discard the used capsule. We recommend deposing it within a sealed bag. Make sure that the capsule is properly disconnected from the connector, and that the connectors in the device and in the cap are not disposed of alongside the used capsule.
11. Removing the cap
Carefully remove the cap by pulling it over the back of the head. Make sure to avoid contact with the eyes.
Lice removal: NOVOKID treatment is a dry treatment that does not require a hair wash, however, the removal of the lice and eggs from the head is recommended to be done using a thick louse comb.
12. Repeating the treatment
Due to the lice’s life cycle and egg hatching times, a complete treatment will include using all 4 capsules included in the case, namely, the treatment should be repeated with a new capsule 24 hours, 7 days, and 14 days after the first treatment. If you know of a lice infection in your surrounding area (kindergartens, schools, etc.) and to ensure getting the best possible results, it is recommended to repeat the treatment once a week during the infection period.
Notes: Through the treatment, some lice and eggs die already during the first treatment, while others begin a dying process, which may take several hours. In the case of long or tangled hair, and if not all the air is extracted from the cap, lice and eggs might hide within air pockets, which the active substance has not fully reached, and therefore it is recommended to repeat the initial treatment and re-treat as directed.
