How to use Hedrin?

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


1. Apply sufficient solution evenly over DRY hair ensuring that the scalp is fully covered.

2. Work into the hair with fingers or an ordinary comb spreading the liquid evenly from the roots to tips.

3. After application, leave on the hair for one hour.

4. Wash the hair with normal shampoo, rinse thoroughly with water and dry.

5. It is important that Hedrin® is applied again after seven days to deal with any untreated eggs which may hatch in that time. Failure to repeat the process may result in the return of a louse infestation.

If you accidentally swallow some of the solution you should consult a doctor as soon as possible. Take the pack with you to show which product you have swallowed.

Please note:
If a member of the family has live head lice, check the other family members and treat all other cases of live head lice which are discovered, at the same time. Hedrin® is for external use only.
