Hedrin Lotion is the only licensed, physically acting head lice treatment solution in the UK.
Hedrin Lotion has been shown to be effective at killing head lice in clinical trials including lice that have developed a resistance to traditional pesticide treatments. It contains the active ingredient Dimeticone, which coats the lice causing them to drown.
Apply a sufficient amount of Hedrin lotion, evenly over dry hair to ensure scalp is fully immersed. Work into the hair spreading the lotion evenly from the roots to tips, and allow hair to dry naturally. Leave on the hair for at least 8 hours or overnight. Wash the hair with normal shampoo, rinse thoroughly with water and dry. Apply again after 7 days to combat any lice which may hatch in that time. Failure to repeat the treatment may result in the return of infestation.
Active ingredient: Dimeticone 4% w/w. Contains: Cyclomethicone 5.
Suitable For adults and children aged 6 months and over.
For external use only. Keep in original carton. If lotion accidentally comes into contact with the eyes, flush and rinse away with water. Discontinue the use of Hedrin lotion if a skin rash or other signs of hypersensitivity occur. Children under 6 months should only be treated under medical supervision. If spilled, Hedrin lotion may cause a slip hazard. Keep hair away from sources of ignition, especially naked flames and burning cigarettes, whilst being treated with Hedrin lotion. Treated hair can readily burn if ignited.
