What are head lice?

Head lice are insects that love nothing better than setting up home on the scalp, where conditions are just how they like them – warm and humid. The pesky creatures feed on blood from the scalp and even inject a substance to make sure their meal doesn’t start clotting before they’ve finished eating. This can cause the itching that’s often the first sign that they’ve moved in.

Once there, head lice are hard to get rid of because the little blighters hold on tightly to the hair – so washing or normal brushing has no effect. What’s more, each louse has an adult lifespan of 30 days – and can lay up to 300 eggs in that time!

How does Lyclear work?

Lyclear's non-insecticde range physically blocks the breathing holes (spiracles) of head lice, targeting them with a double-whammy attack which suffocates and dehydrates them. And to stop the problem coming back, it does the same to the eggs too. Even better, because of the way it works, there’s no way the head lice can become resistant to treatment.
