Lyclear has listed the most frequently asked questions hereunder. If your question is not answered, feel free to contact us.
Contrary to insecticide-based products, the Lyclear treatment range does not contain any insecticides and acts in a purely physical manner. Therefore, head lice cannot become resistant to any of its ingredients.
Lyclear treatment solutions don’t contain chemical ingredients. Possible side effects are limited but may exist: itching and irritation around the eyes, flaking of the scalp, contact irritation and redness of the scalp, ears or neck. As a general precaution, we advise pregnant women breastfeeding to consult a pharmacist or a doctor.
Lyclear Shampoo is suitable for children from 2 years old. Lyclear Spray and Lyclear Sensitive can be used as of 6 months.
You can use Lyclear as often as you want. Normally, 1 or 2 treatments (depending on the treatment chosen) will suffice to get rid of head lice. However, it is possible that people who have been treated can get head lice again from other untreated individuals. In this event, you can use Lyclear again at no risk; it will still be as effective.
The number of treatments depends on the type of treatment you choose. With Lyclear Spray one 15 minutes treatment (incl. thorough combing) will be sufficient in most cases to effectively get rid of head lice. We advise you to re-check your treated child for head lice after seven days and repeat the treatment if necessary (should you notice any living head lice). With Lyclear Shampoo, two 10 minutes treatments are recommended. Comb the hair thoroughly to be certain all eggs are removed from the hair. Treating with LyclearSensitive requires one (overnight) application only. No matter what Lyclear treatment you choose, always use sufficient product. This is vital for a successful treatment.
All Lyclear treatments provide a double physical action attacking both head lice and their eggs. Lyclear Spray (or Lotion) and Lyclear Shampoo suffocate and dehydrate head lice and their eggs, whereas Lyclear Sensitive attaches onto the respiratory orifices of head lice and eggs to suffocate them and penetrates into the heart of the eggs to stop their development.
Lyclear is sold in all major retailers and at most local pharmacies.
