Lyclear shampoo kills head lice and their eggs by coating, suffocating and dehydrating them. The dead lice and eggs should then be removed using the comb provided. The treatment should be repeated after seven days to kill any lice emerging from eggs that survived the first treatment.
Lyclear should be used by everyone in the family (over 2 years) with head lice on the same day to avoid re-infestation. Apply enough shampoo to dry hair evenly over all the hair and scalp. Massage it in well from root to tip until the hair is completely covered, paying particular attention to the nape of the neck and the area behind the ears. The amount of shampoo depends on thickness and length of the hair. Leave the shampoo on the hair for 10 minutes then add enough water to work up a foam. Wash and rinse the hair thoroughly. Not suitable for children under 2 years of age. Avoid getting the shampoo in the eyes, mouth or nose. If you accidentally get Lyclear in the eyes, rinse immediately with plenty of water.
