I'll Give It Full Marks

Advantagesworks

Disadvantagessmells a bit

"...the end I bought the full marks solution as a last resort as I was getting fed up of never being able to fully get rid before she either re caught them or one sneaky little devil was hiding and started the process over again. Full Marks can be bought in a solution, liquid, mousse or lotion. I bought the solution as it was the only one on my supermarket shelves at the time and it was stating it was only a ten minute process which swayed me too. To ..." Read review

Nitty Norah On Nit Patrol

AdvantagesEliminates lice and eggs in only 10 minutes

DisadvantagesNone that I've found

"...Insecticidal products such as Full Marks and Lyclear are amongst the better treatments on the market at present and come highly recommended. There are a number of preparations you can use to treat the infected person such as creams, lotions or the more popular being a shampoo that can take as little as 10 minutes to use, which is all important when treating an impatient child. === MY EXPERIENCE === Iíve decided to write this as Iíve just ..."

full marks for full marks

Advantagesdone the job well, no smell

Disadvantagesoily

"...and bought a bottle of full marks solution, feeling a bit wierd and dirty, and brought it home. It works not by the traditional poisoning method, but rather it kind of over hydrates them, and kills them that way. This sounded ideal as i knew that they are in general starting to resist poisons. In the box i got a bottle of solution (100ml), which it says is enough for two treatments, however i found that it was ample for at least three, though this ..." Read review

Bring back the nit nurses!!!!

AdvantagesQuick and easy to use.

DisadvantagesBit pricey!

"...same consistancy of baby oil. The full marks solution is one of only two products currently on the market with cyclomenthicone, (a non insecticidal solution) and isopropyl myristate( which is a compound that promotes absorbtion into the skin), in them, thus ensuring that this solution is not harmful to skin or eyes. This product is also demartologically tested. First the dry hair has to be ..." Read review

Stop scratching!

Advantagesgets rid of the pesky pests fast

Disadvantagescan be used only if you see a live on...eek!!

""ELIMINATES HEAD LICE AND THEIR EGGS" After years of teaching and watching these little creatures crawl about children's heads while they (the children), scratch uncontrollably, I am ever prepared for the onslaught of the head lice. With this in mind, my hair is always tied back and I try very hard not to go "head to head". My two boys managed to get them once each, probably because they had very short hair, but Little Miss has managed to get head ..." Read review

Almost full marks for full marks solution

Advantagesworks well, quick and easy to use

Disadvantagesdrips everywhere, greasy

"==Almost full marks for full marks solution== My daughter has lovely hair and head lice obviously think so too because she inevitably comes home from school with them at least once a year. I have spent time working in nurseries and schools and I have on occasion also found that I have gotten head lice. This means I have had plenty of experience with different products designed to get rid of head lice. One of my very early reviews was written about ..." Read review

Full marks from me!

AdvantagesOnly need to leave 10 minutes, effective

DisadvantagesNone

"...buy so asked around and Full Marks was recommended by the majority of everyone I asked and is now recommended by me too. The Full Marks solution is quite widely available to purchase from supermarkets and chemists. The last time I bought it I think I paid around £4 for a 100ml bottle. It is available to purchase in a bigger bottle too, should you need it. The packaging is quite simple, the cardboard box gives the product name, how to use, warnings ..." Read review

No traditional pesticides in Full Marks

AdvantagesGot rid of my lice

DisadvantagesI had head lice

"...felt I wanted to try Full marks solution. S o the nice Lloyds chemist at the bottom of my street sold me some full marks solution for £10.69, having looked on line if I had bought in Asda its only £3.50. Having got home I read the instructions before using. I comb through my hair first with my nitty gritty, there is a small nit comb included in the pack but i prefer my nitty gritty. I remove live lice with my comb and stick it on sellotape ..." Read review

Full Marks Solution = no marks in long hair test

AdvantagesSmelled okay, non toxic

Disadvantagesslippery, doesn't kill head lice and their eggs, hard to wash out

"...why we decided to try Full Marks Solution. Firstly, you can only use the solution if you find live lice on the head. Very hard to ascertain with long hair. My husband is in the army so his head is shaved and my eldest also has a number 2 shaved head so it wasn't too bad using the solution on them because you combine the solution with nit combing and that is how you eliminate the head lice. My youngest has short hair and it's very fine so I could ..." Read review

Not as nasty as the remedies when I was a kid.

Advantageskills eggs and nits, without harsh pesticides, works in 10 minutes.

DisadvantagesNot the most pleasant ten minutes you will spend, but it works which is the main thing.

"...nursery and my eldest started full time school. We did well to avoid the dreaded nits even though they were about until last October, and then more recently last weekend. The first time they got nits, my husband was away working, and I discovered this about 3pm on a Sunday afternoon. I rang my sister as I knew she was out shopping, and asked her to pick me something up, and she brough me 2 bottles of this full marks solution. We then sat and treat ..." Read review

Why is my daughter such a nit magnet?

AdvantagesSpray format so easy to apply, no pesticides, nice metalic comb

DisadvantagesIt simply doesn't work

"...we bought a box of Full Marks Solution, as recommended by the pharmacist in our local Boots. This was in a spray format so I thought it might be easy to apply and the bottle contained 150ml and cost £12. Itís a lot to pay when she keeps managing to get them back time and time again. By the time we got back from holiday, she was absolutely crawling with lice and nits, despite me upping my combing and conditioning routine to twice a day, rather than ..." Read review

Itchy!

AdvantagesWorks well

DisadvantagesCan be pricey to treat everyone in the family

"...lotion and I was recommended full marks by a friend. The product This product comes in a many variations so there is plenty of choice for which product is easiest for you it claims to work in 10 minutes so is a quick and effective treatment. Although the process takes a lot longer than 10 minutes with the product only needing to be on that long is does make an overall difference in the full treatment time. I received a ..." Read review

Full Marks for a Lousy Treatment

AdvantagesWorks very fast

DisadvantagesCan leave hair greasy

"...treatments out there and the Full Marks was one of two good options recommended by the pharmacist. I chose the Full Marks solution for two reasons. One, it states it takes 10 minutes and two, it doesn't contain traditional pesticides. The problem with pesticides is that lice can become immune to them, hence, after repeated use, the treatment won't have any effect. Full Marks solution works by dehydrating the lice which causes them to die. ~~~How ..." Read review

Bye bye nasty nits

AdvantagesVery effective

DisadvantagesCan leave hair greasy

"...pesticides or not. My favourite is Full Marks solution as it seems to work the best and only has a 10 minute application time. Full Marks solution comes in a Purple and white box and is available in 100, 200 and 300ml bottles. The 100ml bottle cost me £4.59 and is enough to treat two times. The solution ************ The solution is a clear, non fragranced liquid, which contains no pesticides with a cooking oil consistency. How to use *********** Firstly ..." Read review

Advantagesquick and easy to use

Disadvantagesnone

"Full Marks Solution A few weeks ago I had someone that was staying with us and unfortunately she appeared to have nits the dreaded word. So off I went to the Chemist to see what was on offer and would give a positive response and to get rid of the little blighters. So I came across Full Marks and this was on special offer so I bought it and hurried back home to start battle with the nits. It was packaged in a box which is appealing ..." Read review
