Pharmacist Tip

Washing and conditioning hair to soften it makes it easier to go through with a nit comb. Conditioner also makes it harder for the lice to grip the hair, making it easier to comb them out.

The Hedrin 4% Lotion Spray is the easy way to eradicate head lice. The spray comes ready assembled so that it is easy to use instantly and provides a contactless way to apply the lotion to the affected areas.

Simply spray onto dry hair to ensure that the surface area is fully covered and the hair completely saturated. Work through with a comb to spread the liquid from root to tip.

The lotion should be left on overnight and washed as normal the next day, and the process repeated 7 days later for complete treatment. It is skin friendly, odourless and contains no organophosphates.

Additional tipd for headlice:-

Hedrin does not contain pesticides like conventional head lice treatments. Its active ingredient is Dimethicone, which encapsulates the lice preventing them from moving feeding and regulating their water levels. This kills lice but not the eggs so the procedure needs to be repeated in 7 days time.

Adults, including the elderly and children 6 months old and over:

  • Using a towel, cover your shoulders.
  • Avoid breathing the spray or spraying it into the eyes and face.
  • Cover the dry hair with lotion uniformly and evenly. 
  • Make sure that the hair is saturated and that the scalp and hair are fully covered with the lotion.
  • Spread the lotion uniformly from the roots to the hair tips by working into the hair using an ordinary comb or your fingers. 
  • Leave the hair to dry normally. 
  • Leave the solution on your hair overnight or for at least eight hours.
  • Cleanse the hair with usual shampoo, rinse thoroughly using water and towel dry.
  • It is recommended to apply Hedrin again after 7 days to get rid of any untreated eggs likely to hatch within that time period. There is the high likelihood of lice infestation occurring again, if you fail to repeat the process as recommended.
