Para Plus Headlice Treatment 90g
PARA Plus is easy to use. for the treatment of Head lice and their eggs
PARA Plus is easy to use on children due to the design of its convenient aerosol applicator.
Para Plus Ė the only registered Head Lice treatment with two active ingredients:

Malathion PLUS Permethrin

- Treatment for Nits and Head Lice
- Increases the chances of successfully treating resistant Head Lice
- Easy to use aerosol spray

PARA Plus - for the treatment of Nits and Head Lice. 

Head Lice infestation is a common place condition, especially among school children.  If your child is constantly scratching their head, their hair should be examined for Nits (known as Eggs) or Head Lice.

Head Lice start out as Nits / Eggs that stick firmly to the base of the hair very close to the scalp.  They can vary in size and will be dark or light Ė depending on your childís hair colour.

In 7 to 10 days the Nits will hatch into Head Lice which are around 2mm to 3mm long and feed on blood about 5 to 6 times a day.

Head Lice travel from person to person when 2 heads come close together and by sharing combs, hats, hairbrushes.  Although Head Lice are not dangerous or disease carrying, the itchiness can be very distressing.

PARA Plus can increase the chances of successfully treating resistant Head Lice.

Head Lice are becoming more resistant to many treatments with one active ingredient, however because PARA Plus has two effective active ingredients, it gives you the advantage of a knock out combination.

In most cases PARA Plus will be effective within 10 minutes of treatment, knocking down Nits and Head Lice in one application.  However a second application is recommended in 7 to 10 days to eliminate Head Lice which may have hatched in the intervening time.

Active Ingredients: Piperonyl Butoxide 2.0% w/w, Malathion 0.25% w/w, Permethrin 0.5%w/w.
Para Plus should be applied in a well ventilated place, away from any flame or incandescent object. Be careful to protect eyes, nose and mouth with a towel. Spray evenly onto dry hair in short puffs of about 1 second each, so that the scalp and hair are completely soaked.
Under normal conditions, 1 can of Para Plus is sufficient to treat 3 to 4 people, depending on their hair length.†

Leave on for 10 minutes then rinse well with water. Use a fine tooth comb to remove the dead lice.

Do not use Para Plus on children younger than 24 months. Do not use Para Plus if an asthmatic condition exists. Do not spray near any flame or incandescent object. Must be in a well ventilated room.

    Awesome product! Was recommended by a friend with twin daughters who had tried numerous other remedies to no avail. As with any treatment need to follow up with 2nd application after a week to kill any lice that have hatched since initial treatment. Of course wont kill the nits but definately the lice. Need conditioner and combing for the nits. Seriously recommend!

    Disappointed! My toddler brought lice from play school and by the time we noticed all family was infected. I tyres para plus on him and myself , it removed the lice but all nits were still there and alive and doesn't matter how thorough I was combing it out few nits still were left, due to them strongly attached to the hair. After using few other over the counter treatments I used white vinegar and after conditioner and combed them all out. Sadly i only found about this method few feels later. I think para plus is not effective for nits, even if it says it kills them.

    Bought two Paraplus aerosols. Gave mine and my daughter's hair a good dosage in the perspective we'd be rid of lice. However, it seemed that after following all the instructions with how to spray on parted hair and leaving in for 10 minutes, the lice survived and were certainly not destroyed as outlined on the applicator. Try directly spraying a live louse. You may see what I mean.
