Full Solution Spray has been clinically proven to 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 be removed along with any eggs using the fine toothed Full Marks Removal Comb provided.
To treat head lice, 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.
After 10 minutes, comb through the hair using its fine metal toothed Full Marks Removal Comb provided to remove dead lice and any eggs. Once finished, wash out the solution using an ordinary non-conditioning shampoo, It may be necessary to do this a few times to completely remove the solution. Repeat the above steps on days 7 and/or 14 as required.
