eradicates eggs and lice

Nitty Gritty Comb About a year and a half ago I spotted the Nitty Gritty comb in my local pharmacy. The design of the comb immediately caught my attention because of its long metal teeth and the spiralled grooves which ran down the length of each tooth on the comb. Having three children in the...

“No nit picking from me”

Effective and unique design, durable

Initial outlay is higher than for traditional nit ...

There are several things you dread when you become a parent. Nappy rash, threadworm, and head lice are probably the three I feared the most, and whilst my daughter managed to escape threadworm and only got nappy rash when she was teething, sadly she has fallen victim to head lice. I must have...

Strips lice and eggs from the hair

Expensive

My daughter first became infested with the dreaded headlice when she was just two and started attending nursery. Over the years I have probably used every lotion, potion and comb on the market to keep the bugs at bay with varying degrees of success. The problem is that I manage to get her clear...

Apologies in advance if you find yourself scratching involuntarily while reading this review. Our daughters brought home some unwelcome little "guests" from nursery a few weeks ago. Headlice, nits, call them what you will, it was my first ever encounter with this affliction and I was horrified...

Like all long suffering mum's with children of school age i'm fighting against the battle of the Nits. I had heard of the Nitty Gritty comb a long while ago in various forums where other mums were fighting the same battle and quite a few of them recommended this to be the best solution for...

“THE NIT NILATOR”

published 30/06/2006

Brill on all hair lengths and thicknesses

May seem a little expensive

Nits, even saying it makes me want to scratch my hair repeatedly. Back in my younger days, a long long time ago we had a lady come into the school every so many weeks called a Nit Nurse, she would comb all our hairs to ensure we didn't have nits, and to my knowledge I never did. Now this...

We all hope our kids won't get nits but, as all parents know, there comes a time when mixing with others in crowded classrooms makes it almost inevitable! A lot of the stigma surrounding head lice seems to have gone, I'm pleased to say, but it's still not particularly pleasant to find one...

The Nitty Gritty comb can only be described as *****Y MARVELOUS!!! I have 2 girls at junior school, both have long hair and both have had nits from time to time. The school used to have some parents who didn't take things seriously with nits and head lice so the whole class suffered!! (im sure...

Most parents will be familiar with head lice - horrible little grey/brown bugs that live in hair . Adults can get them too, but children tend to get them more, because of the manner in which they spread . Lice don't jump or fly, but they can crawl from one head to another, and children, with...

FANTASTIC

havent found any

Its enevitable that when your child starts nursery or school they will pick up headlice and treatment lotions and prevention sprays tend to cost the earth and take a long time to apply. This comb saves all that hassle, when i first saw it i thought it was a bit expensive considering id probably...

This is the best weapon against head lice and their eggs! I have tried lotions, oils and whatever else is on the market and never managed to eradicate lice completely unless I used the very harsh chemical lotions. Nit combs did not offer a very good alternative as I always had trouble with my...
