Due to its unique formulation only one treatment is required to end the head lice cycle. There is no need to treat again 7 days later.
Vamousse is designed with kids in mind. The easy-to-apply mousse format helps to minimise the product going into the eyes and does not leave hair feeling greasy after treatment.
The pack includes a steel comb to remove dead lice and eggs.
Suitable for adults and children over 2 years of age.
How to use
Start with DRY hair.
Separate hair into 3-4 sections with clips.
Shake the can well.
Part a section of hair into a 1-inch section, focus the nozzle tip at the scalp and apply a generous amount of mousse along the length of the hair.
Pay special attention to the nape of the neck and behind the ears.
Thoroughly saturate all hair and scalp, massaging the mousse to break down the foam, and thoroughly soaking the hair. For effective treatment, all lice and nits must come in contact with the mousse.
Depending on the length of hair, the full can may be needed.
Repeat the process until all sections of hair are saturated. Allow product to remain on hair for 15 minutes.
Although dead, nits remain attached to the hair.
After 15-treatment, use the enclosed comb, to remove dead lice and nits from the wet hair. Insert the comb against the scalp, and pull through to the end, wiping on a paper towel after each stroke.
If hair dries, apply more product to ease combing. Repeat combing if necessary.
Shampoo and towel dry hair.
