How to use
  • Apply Hedrin 4% Lotion Dimeticone to dry hair. Be sure to use enough to coat all the hair and scalp thoroughly. It is vital to cover all hair from root to tip.
  • Leave the lotion on the hair for at least 8 hours or overnight. This provides enough time for the lotion to kill both adult lice and eggs.
  • After the application period, rinse or wash the hair thoroughly. A regular, gentle shampoo can be used to ensure all the product is removed.
  • After rinsing or washing, comb the hair using a fine-toothed nit comb to remove dead lice and eggs.
  • If necessary, the treatment may be repeated after 7 days to kill any lice emerging from eggs that survived the first treatment.
  • Hedrin 4% Lotion Dimeticone should not be used more than twice in one week.
  • Always read the enclosed instructions thoroughly before use.
  • This product is for external use only, so avoid contact with eyes and mouth. If the product gets into the eyes or mouth, rinse thoroughly with water. Use with care in individuals with skin conditions or asthma, and do not use on broken skin.
