  • ZAP® is a complete head lice treatment.
  • Each box of ZAP® contains a spray-on lotion and a rigid fine-toothed comb, specially designed to remove lice and their eggs.
  • Lice cannot develop resistance to ZAP®, as it has a non-chemical mode of action.
Directions for Use:
  • Please refer to the leaflet enclosed in the ZAP box for complete directions for use.
  • Check for the presence of head lice.
  • Use the ZAP® comb to check for the presence of head lice.
  • Ensure that you perform the check in good light as lice can be difficult to see.
  • Check and treat each member of the household at the same time to avoid the possibility of re-infestation.
  • Apply ZAP®.
  • Carefully spray ZAP® all over the hair until it is lightly wet.
  • Massage the lotion into the hair and scalp for a minute or so to ensure they are completely covered by the lotion.
  • Leave the lotion on for at least 15 minutes.
  • Wash the hair as normal.
  • Remove the lice and eggs.
  • Before drying the hair, systematically divide the hair into small sections and use the ZAP® comb to remove the lice and eggs.
  • Start to comb each section right at the scalp and move the comb along the hair right to the ends.
  • After combing each section of hair, wipe all the debris with a tissue.
Second application:

As it is difficult to remove all the eggs with the first treatment, a second application is necessary after 9 days as any remaining eggs will have hatched into lice. Repeat Steps 2-4, nine days after the first treatment.
