What is Hedrin Spray Gel and what does it do? Hedrin Spray Gel is a liquid gel in an easy spray format. The easy to use trigger helps direct the liquid gel onto the head and hair even in those hard to get at areas. Hedrin Spray Gel is highly effective against head lice and eggs.It works by physically smothering the lice and also contains Penetrol which helps the product to penetrate louse eggs in order to kill them. The gel can safely be used as often as required without lice developing resistance.
As a mum of two children, and someone who works in an early years department and children's centre, I have had to deal with many head lice and have tried many products on the market, as well as the conditioner and comb method.
When I was sent this to try I was 'itching' to try it, as I have previously used the solution which was left in over night and is very successful. The only downside was the price.
This is a new product by Hedrin and needs only 15 minutes to work. It is sprayed into the hair and washed out 15 minutes later.
The spray bottle provided is great design, the spray handle does not get gunked up with sticky solution as I have found with other products. There is hardly any smell to the product and does not leave that sticky, slimy feeling that other solutions done. When washing the solution out I found it quite easy to wash out, only needing a couple of shampoo washes to leave the hair feeling clean. As a family of four, which includes two family members who have thick hair, the bottle was enough for the whole family and there was some left in the bottle.
And the best bit of the test - it actually got rid of the head lice - only one application was needed for the whole family.
A great product, which works, does not leave hair feeling sticky or unclean following the rinsing of hair and in an easy to use bottle. I would definitely recommend this product, although be warned, it is at the higher end of the price range for head lice treatments.
Due to the price, I give this product 4 Star Rating.
Thank you to Michael from The School Run Forum for sending me the solution to try.
