Head Lice Prevention Clinical Trials

Do Head Lice Prevention Sprays Work 

It was found that combing the hair for signs of head lice infestions on a regular basis is probably the best deterrent of all.  Unless a spray containing repellent fragrances for head lice that remains on the hair all day.  There is very little point, as soon as the head warms up the fragrance will evaporate.


Clinical trials run by Prof Ian Burgess to see if prevention sprays work.  

Piperonal, also known as heliotropin, is an organic compound which is commonly found in fragrances and flavors. The molecule is structurally related to other aromatic aldehydes such as benzaldehyde and vanillin.Wikipedia

Benzaldehyde is an organic compound consisting of a benzene ring with a formyl substituent. It is the simplest aromatic aldehyde and one of the most industrially useful. It is a colorless liquid with a characteristic almond-like odor


 Conclusion. Routine use of 2% piperonal spray in communities with a high prevalence of head louse infestation may provide some protection from infestation. However, the difference between use of the product and no active intervention was sufficiently small that regular checking for presence of lice is likely to be a more practical and cost effective approach to prevention of infestationProf Ian Burgess to
