    Lyclear Extra Strong Shampoo is easy to use, and following the instructions carefully is crucial for its effectiveness. Here's how to use it:
    Check for Lice: Before applying Lyclear Extra Strong Shampoo, make sure to check the hair and scalp for any signs of lice or nits. This product is intended for the treatment of active infestations.
    Wet Hair: Begin by wetting the hair thoroughly. The shampoo can be used on wet hair, allowing for easier distribution.
    Application: Apply a sufficient amount of Lyclear Extra Strong Shampoo to the wet hair, ensuring that it covers the entire scalp and hair. Massage it gently to form a lather.
    Leave On: Allow the shampoo to remain on the hair and scalp for approximately 10 minutes. This is crucial for ensuring the effectiveness of the product.
    Rinse: After the recommended time has passed, rinse the hair and scalp thoroughly with warm water. Ensure that all the shampoo is completely washed out.
    Comb: Use a fine-toothed comb to remove any dead lice and nits from the hair while it is still wet. This combing process helps eliminate any remaining debris.
    Repeat (if Necessary): In some cases, a second application of Lyclear Extra Strong Shampoo may be necessary. If lice or nits are still present after the first treatment, wait 7 days before applying a second treatment.
    Cleaning: After treatment, it's important to thoroughly clean any combs, brushes, or other hair accessories that were used, as well as any clothing or bedding that may have come into contact with the infested individual.


    Lyclear Extra Strong Shampoo contains an active ingredient known as permethrin, which is effective in killing lice and their eggs. Permethrin is a synthetic chemical that works by disrupting the nervous system of the lice, leading to their death.
    The shampoo also contains other inactive ingredients that contribute to its texture, appearance, and overall formulation. While the exact list of inactive ingredients may vary slightly depending on the manufacturer, these ingredients are typically chosen for their safety and compatibility with the active ingredient.
    It's important to note that individuals with known allergies or sensitivities to any of the ingredients in Lyclear Extra Strong Shampoo should exercise caution and consider alternatives.

    Side effects

    Lyclear Extra Strong Shampoo, when used as directed, is generally well-tolerated. However, as with any medication, there is the possibility of side effects. Common side effects associated with this product include:
    Skin Irritation: Some individuals may experience mild skin irritation, itching, or redness after using Lyclear Extra Strong Shampoo. This is usually temporary and should subside within a short period.
    Scalp Discomfort: A sensation of warmth or tingling on the scalp can occur. This is usually not a cause for concern and typically fades quickly.
    Hair Texture Changes: Some individuals may notice temporary changes in hair texture, such as dryness or brittleness, after using the shampoo.
    Eye Irritation: Be cautious to avoid contact with the eyes. If accidental eye exposure occurs, rinse the eyes thoroughly with water.
    Severe allergic reactions to Lyclear Extra Strong Shampoo are rare, but if you experience symptoms such as severe skin rash, difficulty breathing, or swelling of the face or throat, seek immediate medical attention.


    Before using Lyclear Extra Strong Shampoo, there are several important warnings and considerations to keep in mind:
    For External Use Only: This product is intended for external use on the hair and scalp. Avoid ingesting it or allowing it to come into contact with the eyes or mouth.
    Keep Out of Reach of Children: Store Lyclear Extra Strong Shampoo out of the reach of children, and use it under adult supervision.
    Allergic Reactions: If you have a known allergy to any of the ingredients in the shampoo, consult a healthcare professional before use.
    Pregnancy and Breastfeeding: If you are pregnant, planning to become pregnant, or breastfeeding, consult a healthcare provider before using Lyclear Extra Strong Shampoo. While it is generally considered safe, it's always best to seek professional advice in such cases.
    Consult a Healthcare Professional: If you are unsure about using Lyclear Extra Strong Shampoo, have any pre-existing medical conditions, or are using it on a child under 2 years of age, it's wise to consult a healthcare professional or pharmacist for guidance.
    Resistance: In rare cases, lice may develop resistance to the active ingredient in lice treatments. If the product does not seem to be effective, consult a healthcare provider for alternative treatments or strategies.
    Environmental Considerations: After use, dispose of the product and any associated materials in accordance with local waste disposal regulations. Do not rinse excess product down the drain or toilet.

    How quickly does Lyclear Extra Strong Shampoo work in treating head lice and nits?

    Lyclear Extra Strong Shampoo typically starts to work as soon as it is applied and allowed to sit for the recommended 10 minutes. After rinsing and combing out dead lice and nits, many individuals notice a significant reduction in lice activity. However, the timeline for complete elimination may vary from person to person.

    Can I use Lyclear Extra Strong Shampoo as a preventive measure against head lice?

    Lyclear Extra Strong Shampoo is designed for the treatment of active head lice infestations. It is not intended for use as a preventive measure. If you are concerned about lice exposure, consider alternative methods like using repellent sprays or teaching children to avoid sharing items that come into close contact with the head.

    Are there any known drug interactions with Lyclear Extra Strong Shampoo?

    Lyclear Extra Strong Shampoo is a topical product, and it is unlikely to interact with other medications taken orally or applied externally. However, if you are currently using other scalp or hair treatments, it's advisable to consult a healthcare professional or pharmacist to ensure there are no potential interactions.

    How should I store Lyclear Extra Strong Shampoo between uses?

    To maintain the product's effectiveness, store Lyclear Extra Strong Shampoo in a cool, dry place and keep the cap tightly closed. Make sure it is out of reach of children. Avoid exposing the product to excessive heat or direct sunlight, as this can potentially alter its properties.

    Can I use Lyclear Extra Strong Shampoo on my child who is under 2 years old?

    Lyclear Extra Strong Shampoo is generally suitable for children over the age of 2. However, it's essential to follow the specific age recommendations provided on the product packaging. If you have concerns about using it on a child, especially if they are younger than 2, or if they have any underlying health conditions, consult with a healthcare professional or pediatrician before use.
