When used according to the instructions, Full Marks Solution Spray will kill head lice and eliminate their eggs. Unlike traditional head lice treatments which poison the lice, Full Marks Solution Spray has a physical action on the lice causing them to dehydrate (lose water) and die. They can then be removed along with any eggs using the fine metal toothed Full Marks Removal Comb provided.
Step 1 Detection.
The only way to confirm a head lice infestation is by finding a live moving louse on the head. This can be done with the specially designed Full Marks Detector Comb. Weekly detection is recommended for ongoing prevention.
Step 2 Treatment.
You should apply enough solution to cover the scalp and hair to ensure complete success.
First, comb through dry hair with a normal comb to remove any tangles. Shake the bottle and apply the solution to dry hair by spraying close to the root. Ensure the entire scalp and hair are fully coated with the solution. Massage in and leave on the hair for 10 minutes. Remember, if someone in the household has head lice it is recommended that all members are checked as head lice are spread by close head to head contact. Treating everyone with head lice on the same day will minimise the chances of re-infestation.
Step 3 Removal.
After 10 minutes comb through the hair using the fine metal toothed Full Marks Removal Comb provided to remove dead lice and any eggs.
TIP: To ensure a thorough job, divide the hair into four quarters and comb each quarter separately. Take a small section of the hair from the quarter; place the teeth of the comb as close as you can to the scalp and comb downwards away from the head to the tips of the hair. After each stroke, rinse the comb to remove any hair and lice and wipe it on a tissue. Once an area of hair is free from lice and eggs push it to one side until the quarter is completely clear. Once you have finished, wash out the solution using an ordinary non-conditioning shampoo. Conditioner is not necessary. It may be necessary to wash the hair a couple of times to completely remove the solution.
Repeat the above steps on days 7 and/or 14 as required.
Please read the enclosed leaflet carefully.
