Hedrin Lotion Spray 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.
Shake the bottle well before use and ensure shoulders are covered with a towel. Holding approximately 10cm from the hair carefully spray the lotion into the hair until itÆs completely covered from root to tip. Let hair dry naturally (a hairdryer can be used if you prefer) and ensure lotion is left in the hair for at least 8 hours (It can be left in overnight if you prefer). Rinse or shampoo lotion out (you will notice it comes out easily, with the dead lice). 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. 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.
