Our Hedrin once spray gel can be used by adults and children above the age of 6 months in the treatment of headlice. This quick and easy to use solution is ideal for anyone struggling to make time for treatment as the solution takes effect in as little as 15 minutes. The formulation contains the active ingredient dimeticone which works by physically smothering the lice causing them to die.Unlike conventional insecticides based treatment options the lice cannot develop a resistance so the formulation can be reused multiple times in the future. The presence of penetrol also facilitates penetration of eggs thus allowing for a thorough cleansing of the hair and scalp. This skin-friendly solution has no unpleasant odors and does not contain pesticides, making it gentler on the skin and thus ideal for younger members of the family.
