    WHAT IS HEDRIN 4% LOTION?

    Hedrin 4% lotion contains the active ingredient dimeticone which works over an 8 hour period to kill both head lice and eggs. Dimeticone works by a physical process which effectively covers and drowns the louse.

    Cyclomethicone which is the other ingredient is a carrier which evaporates after the application has been applied leaving the active ingredient to kill the lice.

    HOW TO USE HEDRIN 4% LOTION?

    Hedrin 4% lotion is suitable for adults and children aged 6 months and over.

    • Apply sufficient lotion evenly over dry hair ensuring the scalp is fully covered.
    • Work into the hair, spreading the liquid evenly from the roots to tips. Allow the 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.
    • It is important Hedrin lotion is applied again after 7 days to deal with any lice which may have hatched since the first treatment. Failure to repeat the treatment may result in a return of the infestation.
    • If one member in the family has head lice, check all other family members and treat cases of live head lice which are found, at the same time.

    WHAT ARE SOME OF THE CAUTIONS OF USING HEDRIN LOTION?

    Children under 6 months should only be treated under medical supervision.

    Keep hair away from sources of ignition especially naked flames and burning cigarettes whilst being treated with Hedrin.

    Avoid contact of lotion with your eyes. If it accidentally gets into the eyes, flush with water.
