Hedrin Information

Hedrin FAQs

1. What is Hedrin?

Hedrin is a range of effective head lice treatments suitable for adults and children over six months of age. Hedrin products are free from pesticides, odourless, skin friendly and easy to apply. The active ingredient is dimeticone, which is clinically proven to have a 97% success rate.

2. How does Hedrin work?

Hedrin works by smothering the head lice and killing them by dehydration or suffocation. Because Hedrin's active ingredient, dimeticone, isn't a pesticide, the lice cannot form a resistance to it as they often do with more traditional head lice treatments.

3. What is dimeticone?

Dimeticone, also known as dimethicone or polydimethylsiloxane, is a silicone oil.

4. How effective is Hedrin?

Clinical trials have shown that Hedrin has 97% effectiveness. Because Hedrin is pesticide-free and does not poison the lice, it is the first licensed head lice treatment in the UK to which the lice cannot form a resistance. This gives Hedrin an advantage over the more traditional treatments that rely on these harsh chemicals.

5. Is Hedrin safe to use?

The Hedrin range is suitable for adults and children over six months of age. All products are colourless, odourless, pesticide-free and are not absorbed through the skin. Hedrin does not use any solvents, making it suitable for those with asthma.

The active ingredient, dimeticone, is well tolerated and is commonly available in cosmetics and toiletries.

6. Does Hedrin smell bad?

No. Hedrin Lotion is odourless so you needn't worry about smelling bad. Hedrin Gel does, however, have a slight, but pleasant odour.

7. How do I apply Hedrin?

All Hedrin products should be applied to dry hair and should cover the hair from root to tip. For further advice please visit the product page for each item to view specific application instructions.
