Lyclear has listed the most frequently asked questions hereunder. If your question is not answered, feel free to contact us.
What is the difference between Lyclear and products based on insecticides?
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.
Does Lyclear have possible side effects?
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.
As from which age Lyclear can be used?
Lyclear Shampoo is suitable for children from 2 years old. Lyclear Spray and Lyclear Sensitive can be used as of 6 months.
What if I find new head lice after the first Lyclear treatment?
Lyclear treatments are specifically developed to get rid of head lice and their eggs. In the event of a severe infestation, some eggs could still hatch after your first treatment, so you might have nymphs or baby head lice in your hair. There is no need to worry, as these nymphs only become mature after 10 days. Before that time, they feed on blood to live, but are not yet able to reproduce. Treat your hair a second time, and all head lice and eggs will be gone.
Another option is that your hair may have been re-infested. This is probably the case if you find mature head lice of more than 2mm because nymphs are smaller than mature head lice. lf this louse is female, she may have laid eggs again. In that case you need to start treating your hair with Lyclear again.
How often can I use Lyclear?
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.
What if I put the product on for a shorter or longer time than required?
A shorter treatment duration (<15 minutes for Lyclear Spray , <10 minutes for Lyclear Shampoo, < 8 hours for Lyclear Sensitive) is not recommended as this is crucial for the success of your head lice treatment. Please respect the timings which are needed for maximum efficacy.
The products can be applied for a longer duration (>15 minutes for Lyclear Spray (or Lotion), >10 minutes for Lyclear Shampoo, > 8 hours for Lyclear Sensitive) but it is not necessary to guarantee a successful treatment. Lyclear treatment solutions do not contain chemical substances and are thus not harmful.
How many treatments are necessary to get rid of head lice?
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.
How does Lyclear work?
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.
