Questions About Vamousse Lice Treatment

I used the Vamousse Treatment, does the mousse kill eggs in addition to lice?

Vamousse Treatment has been clinically proven to kill BOTH lice and their eggs (read more about how it works here). For best results, the shake the Treatment can well prior to use and fully saturate the hair and scalp to ensure ALL lice and eggs come into contact with the product and remain in contact for 15 minutes.

How does Vamousse Treatment work?

Vamousse Treatment uses the active ingredient Natrum Muriaticum to kill lice and eggs by dehydration. The unique formula uses an innovative technology to remove the outer protective layer of lice and their eggs, optimizing the activity of the active ingredient to dehydrate lice, ultimately resulting in death.

Can Vamousse Treatment be used on “super lice”?

“Super lice” is a term being used to describe strains of head lice identified in many states in the U.S. that have become genetically resistant to the pesticide-based active ingredients (permethrin and pyrethroids) used in many over-the-counter head lice products. Vamousse Treatment is pesticide-free, and therefore has no pesticide resistance. Regardless of where you live, an effective, safe, pesticide-free treatment is a very practical option and available over-the-counter without a prescription.

I recently used another type of lice product and it did not work. Can I use Vamousse immediately following the other product or is there a waiting period?

Vamousse contains safe, non-toxic ingredients which do not require a waiting period before use.

No comb was included in the Treatment box I purchased. What can I do?

Your quickest option will be to return the product to the store for a refund or exchange, if another box with a comb is available on the shelf. Alternately, we will be happy to mail you a comb. Please note that this may take up to 2 days to arrive, however. Please contact us at 1-855-373-7210 if you want to report the missing comb and request a replacement.

How long can I leave Vamousse Treatment on?

Vamousse needs to be in contact with all lice and eggs for15 minutes, however, if you need to leave it on longer for any reason you may.

How often can I use Vamousse Treatment?

Vamousse contains safe, non-toxic ingredients and no pesticides, so it can be applied as often as needed without a waiting period to treat a reinfestation or any lice or eggs missed during a prior treatment.

When does Vamousse Treatment expire? The date on the bottom of the can looks like it is past its expiration?

Vamousse Treatment has no expiration date. You will see a sequence of letters and numbers printed on the bottom of the mousse can that sometimes is mistaken for an expiration date. This code is a manufacturing lot/batch code, not an expiration date.

Since Vamousse Treatment kills the eggs, do I need to remove the eggs that are still attached to the hair shaft or will they eventually fall out on their own?

Vamousse does not remove the nits. Due to the strength of the “glue” that lice use to attach their eggs to the hair shaft, even dead eggs will remain attached after treatment. Following the instructions, use the Vamousse lice comb, included in the package, to remove dead lice and nits.

I used the Vamousse Treatment exactly as directed and still see live lice or nits in the hair. What happened?

It is possible that the product did not contact with ALL of the lice and eggs.  For best results, the treatment canister must be shaken well prior to use and ALL lice and eggs must come into contact with the treatment by fully saturating the hair and scalp for 15 minutes. Ensure that areas behind the ears, at the nape of the neck, and down to the roots remain wet throughout the treatment.

I used Vamousse Treatment, but it didn’t work.

As a reminder, use one whole can of treatment per person and make sure the hair and scalp are completely saturated throughout the 15-minute treatment period.  Vamousse must come in contact with all lice and eggs to be effective. Be sure that you shake the mousse can well before application. If hair is becoming dry before you complete application and begin to comb, apply more product to the hair and scalp. Follow the instructions on the pamphlet included in the box to ensure you haven’t missed any steps. Use the included Vamousse lice comb to thoroughly eliminate dead lice and nits following treatment to ensure maximum efficacy. Read about our Satisfaction Guarantee here.
