What is Hedrin 4% Lotion?
This Hedrin Lotion is a treatment that works to provide relief for head lice that have become infested in the hair. This lotion works to kill the lice and make it easier to remove them. It works thanks to the active ingredient dimeticone. Dimeticone is a silicone-based substance that doesn’t work like other types of treatment where the lice are poisoned. Instead, this essentially drowns them by coating them and preventing them from being able to move. This means that the lice will never become immune to this treatment.
How do head lice get into the scalp?
