What is Hedrin Once Spray?
The Hedrin Once Spray is the easy way to eliminate head lice. It is available without prescription from a local pharmacy. The spray version is ready assembled for easy and instant use. It provides a contactless way to apply the lotion to the affected areas. Hedrin Once Spray is odourless, skin friendly, and contains no organophosphates.
Hedrin Once Spray is a water-based treatment that rinses out of the hair without leaving any greasy residue. When dry, it remains on the child’s hair while they play, go to school, or sleep. It requires two applications to stay for eight hours or overnight, seven days apart.
How does Hedrin Once Spray work?
Hedrin Once Spray works different from how conventional insecticides work on head lice. It does not kill the parasites through the use of chemicals, the dimeticone in Hedrin Once Spray works by physically providing a coat to the lice. The coat prevents the lice from moving and feeding. It also prevents them from excreting excess waste water. Both actions effectively kill the head lice. Head lice cannot develop resistance to the lotion because of the way it works.
Hedrin Once Spray does not kill the eggs, making a repeat of the treatment necessary after seven days to kill the lice that have hatched from the eggs that survived the first application.
If the head lice come back, you can repeat the treatment right away.
What are the benefits of using Hedrin Once Spray?
Hedrin Once Spray effectively kills the head lice by covering them with a coat. It is effective in killing the head lice without the risk of insecticide that may harm the health of the user.
How do I use Hedrin Once Spray?
All members of the family with head lice should be treated with Hedrin Once Spray on the same day in order to avoid re-infestation.
Hedrin Once Spray should be applied to dry hair. Apply Hedrin Once Spray carefully over all the hair and the scalp. Massage the lotion well from the roots to tips until the hair is completely wet. The amount of Hedrin Once Spray needed will depend on the length and thickness of the hair.
To apply Hedrin Once Spray to long hair, make a small parting and apply a few drops of the lotion along the hair, spreading the lotion evenly along the length of the hair. Repeat this process with numerous small sections until the whole scalp and hair has been covered.
The Hedrin Once Spray spray is easier to apply. Hold the spray about 10 cm from the hair and spray evenly over the whole head until fully saturated.
Exercise care in preventing the lotion to get in the eyes or inside the mouth or nose. If the lotion will accidentally get in the eyes, they should be rinsed immediately with plenty of water.
Leave the hair to naturally dry in a warm but well-ventilated room. Avoid using a hairdryer
Wash the hair with normal shampoo after 8 hours or overnight. Rinse thoroughly and repeat.
Use a fine-toothed nit comb in removing the dead lice and eggs from the wet hair. Separate the hair into several sections and comb thoroughly from root to tip. Clean the com as you go to remove the dead lice and eggs.
Hedrin Once Spray dosage
Hedrin Once Spray should be applied to the head and scalp in two applications. Each application should last for 8 hours or overnight. Leave 7 days in between the two applications.
