We believe that every child in Britain should receive a Nitty Gritty NitFree Comb, free of charge, at the age of five on his or her first day at 'big school'.

If you believe you can help to make this happen, we would be delighted to hear from you at

Our award-winning Nitty Gritty NitFree Comb works with any ordinary hair conditioner, and is fully approved for NHS prescription - because it conforms completely to the latest NHS guidelines which specify 'wet combing' as the most effective method of treating head lice infestation.

Providing whole classes and then whole schools with the NitFree will be the first step towards the whole of Britain 'beating the bugs'. p> Is there a school in a low-income area within your constituency which would like to work with us to become the first 'Nit-Free' school in the UK?

We are a tiny, company - started and still run by three London mums, with no big corporation backing us. But we are on a mission… to make the whole of Britain a 'Nit-Free' zone, and our award-winning Nitty Gritty Comb is just the thing to get the job done.

Our ambition is to prove our case by working within one neighbourhood, village or even small town at first - but we will need your help, to co-ordinate local healthcare professionals, teachers, councillors and mums and dads too.
