NYDA® express uses a unique combination of dimethicones to suffocate head lice and their eggs.
Some traditional head lice treatments target the nervous system of the louse, but unhatched eggs haven t developed a nervous system yet.
However, head lice at every stage of the life cycle need to breathe.
That’s why NYDA® express uses an innovative dual dimethicone formula to deeply penetrate the airways of eggs and adult lice to stop them from breathing.
This unique suffocation method has been scientifically proven to kill head lice in 1 application* (no repeat treatment necessary) without any burning or harsh chemical smell.
** We recommend checking hair again 8-10 days after treatment. If the treatment solution does not completely cover all hair, some eggs may not be killed and may hatch up to 7-8 days later. If any live head lice are detected, repeat treatment and check hair again in a further 8-10 days.
Brauer NYDA Express is suitable for:
Suitable for infants as well as pregnant and breastfeeding women
- Apply to dry hair.
- Spray carefully over all of the hair beginning near the scalp.
- Massage in well and let it work for 10 minutes.
- Comb hair carefully afterwards using the lice comb provided to remove the suffocated lice.
- Wash out with your normal shampoo.
*Always re-examine scalp & hair after 8 - 10 days to check for possible re-infestation or incomplete solution application.
Warning and Disclaimers:
Always read the label. Follow the directions for use. If symptoms persist, talk to your health professional.
Why should NYDA Express be applied to dry hair?
NYDA Express eliminates headlice and their eggs by spreading over the scalp and deeply penetrating the airways of the lice. This effectively closes the airways and suffocates them. Since water has a higher surface tension than NYDA, it is not able to penetrate the respiratory system of the headlice. If NYDA express is applied to wet hair, the product dilutes and this restricts successful treatment.
Does NYDA Express require a second treatment?
If the initial treatment does not completely cover all hair, some eggs may not be killed and may hatch 7-8 days later. As such, we recommend checking the hair again 8-10 days after treatment. If any live lice are found, repeat treatment and check hair again in a further 8-10 days. If no live lice are found, repeat treatment is not necessary
What are the considerations for using NYDA Express on coloured hair?
Although there is a possibility that coloured hair may change or the durability of the colour may be shortened, since NYDA express was introduced to the market in 2006, there have been no reported problems associated with coloured hair. As a precaution, users with coloured hair should wait two days after treatment to recolour as the main components of NYDA express should be washing out by then.
Is NYDA Express Flamable?
The dimethicones in NYDA® express are potentially flammable, similar to a hairspray or perfume. However, dimethicones only ignite when they come into contact with an open flame. To prevent possible accidents, the flammability of NYDA® express and the correct handling of the product is as follows: "Because some ingredients are flammable, NYDA® express may not be used in the presence of an open flame or incandescent objects. Keep NYDA® express away from heat and ignition sources and do not smoke during treatment."
