Licener is a head lice shampoo, based on the extract of Neem that effectively kills lice and lice eggs (nits) in a single treatment of 10 minutes, with no combing required.
It depends on the length of the hair. 50ml per treatment will be sufficient for short hair, while people with long hair might need 100ml to cover all hairs thoroughly. Just make sure that you use enough shampoo to cover the complete hair and scalp.
It means you do not need to use a nit comb to ensure Licener’s effectiveness however, if desired, you can still comb the hair after treatment to remove any dead lice and eggs that may remain behind.
At the top of each egg are tiny openings called aeropyles (breathing holes). Licener enters these tiny holes, blocking the oxygen flow which causes the carbon dioxide to build up and the nits suffocate and die. So to ensure success it is important to follow all directions closely and to massage Licener well into the scalp to make sure all hair is coated in Licener and all lice and nits are covered.
No, Licener kills the lice and eggs with a physical mode of action (suffocation) therefore lice are unable to build resistance to it.
No, Licener is a mild shampoo and does not sting normal skin, it has been dermatologically tested and was found to not cause skin irritation on normal skin.
No, Licener has a neutral smell.
A full treatment of Licener requires just one application. However, Licener is a nice shampoo that is gentle on the scalp and hair so can be used as often as you like.
Licener is suitable for use on children as young as 2 years.
No, Licener contains an extract derived from the naturally occurring Neem Tree.
Head lice have been around for thousands of years. As with any insect, they learn to adapt to their environment in order to survive. We are never going to be completely rid of them, but we can make managing them easier.
Yes they are. Anyone can catch them, but lice are most common amongst children between the ages of 3 to 11.
No. Lice do not have the right sort of limbs for jumping or flying, so they cannot jump or fly across clothing; they only move directly from one person’s hair to hair on another head. Sometimes when you are combing or brushing the hair, the electrostatic charge can make lice appear to leap away from the head.
No. Lice will happily live in hair of 1 cm; the only advantage of short hair is that detection and treatment can be easier.
No. Head lice rarely fall from the head. They require blood to survive. Head lice feed 3-4 times a day and without blood they will dehydrate in 6 hours in a dry climate and 24 hours in a humid climate. An egg requires warmth to hatch and is the reason why they are laid close to the scalp. The further away from the scalp, the less likely they are to survive.
Absolutely not. Head lice don’t mind if hair is clean or dirty; and as they cannot live away from the human head, home hygiene has nothing to do with infestation.
No. Head lice are a purely human parasite and cannot infect cats, dogs or other animals. Head lice can only live on human beings so you cannot get it from your dog.
