When can I stop using Natroba?

You may be able to stop using Natroba (spinosad), a liquid medication for head lice, after only one application. You apply the liquid to dry scalp and hair, leave it on for 10 minutes, and rinse thoroughly with warm water. You can use a fine-toothed comb to remove the dead lice and eggs (nits). A week after the first treatment, check your hair and scalp again. If there are any signs of live lice, repeat the 10-minute treatment. Two weeks after the final treatment with Natroba, 86% of people are lice-free, according to studies.
