Hedrin no drama - stressed mum


Research shows mums’ dramatically different attitudes to head lice

New mums are so anxious about head lice, they’re less likely to tell the school when their children catch them. That’s the worrying discovery revealed by our research with over 500 parents by leading head lice brand Hedrin. It’s also the inspiration behind Hedrin’s highly unexpected new campaign.

Two kinds of mums, two views of head lice

Research explored the views of two different mum segments with a clear shared goal, but very different feelings:

  • ‘Anxious new mums’ first time users of head lice treatments, with strongly negative feelings
  • ‘Resigned mums’ who had faced head lice before and accepted the issue as a mild annoyance

Anxious mums feel a real stigma around their children’s head lice – so they’re less likely to tell the school (bad news for other mums). They feel disappointed, nervous, panicky even. They are willing to pursue a cure immediately, and more likely to treat their child on suspicion rather than hard evidence.

Resigned mothers see head lice as an ongoing problem, a fact of life. They’re more interested in preventative measures like regular checks, combing and tying back hair.
