Hedrin 15 is a highly effective 15 minute treatement against lice and eggs. Dimeticone 4% is the active ingredient and Penetrol works as the carrier of the Dimeticone 4%.
Once applied, the formulation immobilises lice within 10 seconds of contact, by blocking the spiracles and trachea (which prevents fluid management). The 2% Penetrol® transports Dimeticone 4% through the lips of the egg to fill the chamber, thereby blocking all functions of aeroplyles and preventing eggs from developing. When applied correctly, Hedrin can help to effectively treat lice that have built up a resistance to presticide based head lice treatments.

Cover the shoulders with a towel.
Shake the bottle well before each use.
Holding the spray approximately 10cm from the hair, carefully spray sufficient gel evenly over DRY hair, to ensure that the scalp and hair are fully covered and the hair is saturated.
Be careful not to spray into eyes and face and do not breathe the spray.
Work into the hair with the fingers or an ordinary comb spreading the gel thoroughl and evenly from the roots to tips.
Leave on the hair for at least 15 minutes (or longer if more convenient).
Before wetting, apply shampoo directly to the surface of the hair, ensuring full coverage. The gel needs to be fully coated with shampoo in order to remove it, as the product repels water. If the hair is rinsed before shampoo is applied the gel removal will be ineffective.
Please note: Hedrin 15 Spray Gel contains an anti foaming agent so the shampoo will not lather readily.
Shampoo thoroughly then rise with water. Apply conditioner as required, rinse and dry. Once dried, if the gel has not been fully removed, repeat the whole procedure remembering to apply shampoo directly to dry hair.
It is recommended to reapply the treatment after 7 to 10 days to kill any lie that may have hatched from any eggs that were not covered by the first treatment.
