Hedrin Once Spray Gel can be safely used as often as required without lice developing resistance. It includes a new '1 hour' formula that is clinically proven to kill head lice and eggs in adults and children.
Shake the bottle well before use and ensure shoulders are covered with a towel. Holding the spray approximately 10cm from the hair carefully spray sufficient gel evenly over dry hair, so that the scalp and hair are fully covered and the hair is saturated. Work into the hair, spreading the gel thoroughly and evenly from the roots to tips. Leave on hair for at least 1 hour. Wash the hair thoroughly with a non-conditioning shampoo. For best results, apply the shampoo directly to the hair without wetting it. Hedrin Once Spray Gel contains anti-foaming ingredients so the shampoo will not lather readily. Rinse with water repeat shampooing as necessary and dry. Apply again after seven days.
The active substance is Dimeticone 4% w/w. Dimeticone is not a chemical poison. It works by a physical process which effectively covers and drowns the louse. The other ingredients are Cyclomethicone 5. Cyclomethicone 5 is a carrier ingredient which evaporates after application leaving the active ingredient to kill the lice
