Practice and School Nurse

In schools and nurseries all over Britain children are singled out, picked on, teased and even excluded from school because they are suffering from a severe head louse infestation. This is not only ineffective, but also invariably extremely damaging to the child and his or her family.

Many parents have simply given up treating their children's hair. That's because - just like us when we went through 'head lice hell' with our daughters - they found that there was simply no safe, effective way to 'beat the bugs'.

Well, now there is. And now there are millions of British families using our award-winning Nitty Gritty NitFree Comb… and more parents and teachers discovering just how good it is every single day.

The Nitty Gritty NitFree Comb is fast becoming the treatment of choice for School and Practice Nurses, and every single day, we receive calls from nurses and health visitors who have either used or heard from colleagues just how amazing, not to mention how cost-effective our Nitty Gritty NitFree Comb is. Our comb serves an entire family and has a lifetime guarantee, so you will only ever need to prescribe this one comb.

Unlike any other product on the market our patented micro spiral comb is the only head lice product to 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.
