// Popular £12 head lice lotion can catch fire

Due to some cases of children suffering burns while being treated with chemical lice treatments, including popular brand Hedrin, experts are warning parents to not smoke near children’s heads or let them near an open flame.

The chemicals in the lice treatment are extremely flammable and a dozen adults and children have suffered burns in the past decade from exposing their doused head to flames.

While many of the accidents happened due to being near cigarettes, one woman was left with serious burns after adjusting a gas fire with the treatment on her hair.

Avoid the risk and clear your head lice by hand. We sell comb to clear kits in our shop, or if you don’t want to do it yourself you can reach out and contact your nearest Hairforce Branch.
