Nitty Gritty Nifree Comb

The revolutionary award-winning Nitty Gritty NitFree Comb is ALL your patients need to remove head lice and their eggs, without the use of chemical or liqid treatments.

It uses the very latest cutting-edge technology, so that the patented micro-grooved teeth remove not only the smallest head lice as well as the nits (the empty egg cases) but also, most importantly, it even removes the unhatched 'live' head louse eggs, which is the main cause of repeated infestations.

it is also very cost effective to the NHS, as there are NO MULTIPLE OR REPEAT PRESCRIPTIONS. Thatís because one comb is sufficient to treat a whole family. The comb also has a lifetime guarantee, so you will only ever need to prescribe this one comb.

It is fully approved for NHS prescription by GP's, Prescribing Nurses, Health Visitors and Pharmacists
