What is Full Marks Solution

Full marks is an over-the-counter medication in children over two years of age and adults for head lice. This is a fast-acting treatment, which includes active ingredients such as cyclomethicone and isopropyl myristate. They kill the lice by binding, smothering and dehydrating them.

Can I buy Full marks online?

Full marks do not require a prescription, although you are very welcome to book an appointment with a health expert at Click Pharmacy to discuss how best to use this product. Each unit of Full marks contains a 100ml of product enough for the first and second treatment.  Therefore, you can choose to buy one unit or multiple packs since the application varies with the length of hair. Full marks is available online in multiple quantities and will be sent directly to you by Next Day Delivery.

How effective is Full marks?

Full marks is clinically tested and proven to work faster than any other head lice treatment, as it only to takes five minutes for the medication to work effectively. Since it does not work by poisoning, as traditional pesticides do, the head lice cannot develop a resistance to it. 

Nonetheless, although it is a non-prescription medication, adherence to instructions and careful application is required for positive results.

What dose should I choose?

Full marks should be reapplied after the first treatment to get rid of the lice that might’ve hatched from the eggs left behind. The solution only takes five minutes to kill lice after which you should follow up with a nit comb provided to remove the eggs that may be attached on the hair shafts.  Full marks is a treatment recommended for adults and children with over two years of age.

How should I take Full Marks?

With a towel or any rug placed under your shoulders, apply the solution on dry hair. Apply caution as the product can stain your clothes.

Ensuring that you do not inhale the solution or get it in your eyes, nose or mouth, carefully massage the treatment coating each strand until your hair is saturated.

Allow the product to stay in your hair for five minutes then use the comb provided in the package to remove the dead lice and eggs. To remove the eggs effectively, separate your hair in four sections. Take a small part of hair from the first quarter and comb through using the "nit" comb. Ensure that you comb from scalp to the tip of the hair. Rinse off the comb after each stroke and wipe it off. Do this until you have combed through all four sections of your hair, ensuring that once you are done with a section, you comb it away from the areas you have yet to nitpick. 

Upon completion, wash the hair with a non-conditioning shampoo. Do this several times until the hair is rid of all the solution. Dry the hair and repeat this process after seven days. 

Always remember to apply shampoo on dry hair instead of wet hair. 

Treat all family members infested with the lice on the same day.
