Overview

buy full marks solution with comb 200ml online

One quarter of this bottle should contain sufficient solution to treat a head lice infection on one head. However, you should apply enough to cover scalp and hair to ensure complete success.

Used according to the instructions, Full Marks Solution kills head lice and eliminates eggs. Unlike traditional head lice treatments which poison the lice, Full Marks Solution has a physical action on the lice causing them to dehydrate (lose water) and die, they can then be removed along with any eggs using the comb provided.

FAQ

What are head lice?

Head lice are tiny grey/black insects which live in the hair. Nits as they are commonly known are yellow/white eggs cases which the lice hatch from. These attach to the hair. The lice feed from the blood in the scalp and lay eggs. These eggs then hatch and grown into adult lice within around 7-10 days.

Who gets head lice?

Head lice are most common in children, however anyone can catch them. It makes no difference whether the hair is clean or dirty. Head lice are usually spread by head to head contact with someone who is infected. The lice cannot jump or fly, they can simply walk from one persons head to another if in close enough contact. They can occasionally be spread by sharing a hairbrush or hair accessories with a person who is infected, but they cannot survive for any length of time away from the scalp.

What are the symptoms of head lice?

Head lice can make the scalp feel itchy or like there is something moving in the head. The itching is a result of the lice biting the scalp and the reaction can cause an itch. They generally don’t cause any other problems. Occasionally they cause a rash on the scalp which may become infected, but this is very rare.

Can head lice be prevented?

The only way that head lice can be prevented is by avoiding head to head contact with an infected person. It is almost impossible to completely avoid getting them. It is advised that people with long hair that may be exposed to infected people, should keep their hair tied back. This will make it more difficult for the lice to move from one person’s hair to another. This is important, for example, in children. It is also important to perform “wet combing”see below), once weekly on a person who may be exposed to head lice, for example, school children or adults who work closely with children.

What is detection combing?

Detection combing is a method of combing the hair to check for lice. If this is done regularly, head lice can be found early and treatment can be commenced straight away.

Detection combs are special fine-toothed plastic combs that you can buy from your local pharmacy or from our site.  A comb with flat-faced teeth and a tooth spacing of 0.2-0.3mm is best.

Wet hair method

Wash the hair with your normal shampoo.
Rinse out the shampoo and put on lots of your normal conditioner.
Comb the hair with a normal comb to get rid of tangles.
When the hair is untangled, switch to a detection comb.
Slot the teeth of the detection comb into the hair at the roots so it is touching the scalp.
Draw the detection comb through to the tips of the hair.
Make sure that all parts of the hair are combed by working around the head.
Check the comb for lice after each stroke. A magnifying glass may help.
If you see any lice, clean the comb by wiping it on a tissue or rinse it before the next stroke.
After the whole head has been combed, rinse out the conditioner.
Repeat the combing procedure in the wet hair to check for any lice that might have been missed the first time.
 

Dry Hair method

Use an ordinary, wide-toothed comb to straighten and untangle the hair
Once the comb moves freely through the hair without dragging, switch to the louse detection comb
Make sure the teeth of the comb slot into the hair at the roots, with the edge of the teeth lightly touching the scalp
Draw the comb down from the crown to the ends of the hair with every stroke
Look for lice as the comb is drawn through the hair. If you see a louse, trap it against the face of the comb with your thumb to stop if being repelled by static electricity
Comb each section of hair 3 or 4 times before moving on to the next section, until the whole head has been combed through

Directions

Step 1.
Comb through dry hair with a normal comb to remove any tangles, Shake the bottle, Apply the solution to the dry hair and massage in, ensuring that the entire scalp and all the hair are coated with the solution. Leave on the hair for 10 minutes.

Step 2.
After 10 minutes you can comb through the hair using the special comb provided, to remove dead lice and any eggs.
TIP: To ensure a thorough job, divide the hair into four quarters and comb each separately. Take a small section of hair from the quarter and place the teeth of the comb as close as you can to the scalp and comb downwards away from the head to the tips of the hair. After each stroke, rinse out the comb to remove any hair and lice and wipe it with a tissue. Once an area of hair is free of lice and eggs, push it to one side and continue until the quarter is completely clear. Once you have finished the treatment, wash out the solution using an ordinary non-conditioning shampoo. Conditioner is not necessary.

Step 3.
Repeat above steps on days 7 and/or 14 as required.
