Hedrin Headlice Treatment – Review and Giveaway

As a parent of school age children I am more than aware that headlice is a thing. Despite many parents claiming their children have never had them it is extremely common. With children playing together so close and hugging each other they are very easily passed from person to person and Hedrin will be a name you’ve heard of.

Annabelle has always had an issue and I have lost count of the amount of times I have been into her school complaining about the fact that it’s been costing me a fortune to treat her to be met with the teachers saying sorry there is nothing they can do but send out a letter. Apparently in this day and age its cruel to point out a single child therefore they can only send out a general letter telling parents headlice are around.

Part of the issue of treating your kids is the cost and knowing which treatment works best for your child and trust me when I say there isn’t much I haven’t tried on my princess! You can imagine how thrilled I was to be asked to try out Hedrins products and to host a giveaway for them. Keep reading to discover how you can get your hands on a Hedrin Bundle.

What we thought?

I was sent the Hedrin Once Spray Gel, Hedrin Stubborn Egg Removal Kit and the Hendrin Spray & Go protection spray.

I had noticed Annabelle scratching and as it was the last day of term I figured it would be the perfect time to get her treated and clear for the holidays. First I applied the Hedrin Once Spray Gel and Left it on for the 15 minutes that it states. Immediately as it was getting to work I could see the headlice appearing at the top of her hair.

I personally find it a little tricky to completely wash out the treatment but luckily I had spoken to somebody who suggested using washing up liquid instead of shampoo as washing up liquid is designed to strip away grease. I applied the washing up liquid to the treated hair ( without wetting it first) and gave it a good rub in before rinsing, washing and conditioning her hair as normal, I then went through her hair with the comb that was provided.

Then I decided to try out the stubborn egg removal and I have to say where on earth has this product been all my life? I can hand on heart say that after years of trying everything from vinegar, conditioner, the worlds supply of treatments this product is by far the best I have ever tried. It creates a kind of coating on the hair meaning that when you put the comb through it helps pull the stubborn eggs off the strands of hair. It really does do what it says on the tin and I will be purchasing this more often.

I followed the whole routine with the spray & go treatment and it worked fantastic.

The Scientific Stuff

Hedrin’s efficacy is a result of its active ingredients, dimeticone (Hedrin 4% Lotion and Hedrin Once) and Activdiol (Hedrin Treat & Go and Protect & Go). All formulations are patented and have been shown to be effective at killing head lice in clinical trials and even work on lice that have developed a resistance to traditional pesticide treatments. Hedrin products are also free from solvents that can cause problems in some asthma suffers.

  1. I personally don’t like this make. My kids have had head lice alot over the past 12 months. I had to treat their hair at least 4 times a month. I found nothing was working in the end. Now I use conditioner in their hair every bath time and keep on top of it.
    Glad you found something that works for you 😁 x

  2. A bit of an obvious one, but tie up long hair! My eldest has long thick hair. Even if I plait it those whispy bits are EVERYWHERE. So I tend to hairspray as well (if I know there is a serious outbreak of the critters at school) so if she does take any little friends home they get stuck and I can comb them out asap.
    Really hoping my youngest who will be at nursery doesn’t get them, as it’s easier said than done trying to rigorously go through a wiggly 3yr olds hair.

    1. I always send my girls to school in french plaits but they still get them, unfortunately I think with little girls its tricky as they hug each other etc all the time.The good news is once they hit senior school its no longer a problem. I think maybe it’s because they no longer have to rely on their parents and can do it themselves and are more aware of it maybe? thanks for commenting x

  3. Keep long hair tied up for school and nursery. Check through hair often as it’s easier to get rid of the if you catch them early
