I believe it's £10 with the solution, still not a bad price though.

Go to the GP and these are free like katya says . I got 2 for my children . They HAVE to supply you with them .

This is the ONLY comb that works!! Worth every penny - I'd buy one if I didn't already have one!! This combs out even the teeniest of eggs (itchy itchy scratchy scratchy!!) and can even be used effectively on dry hair - if you have not already got one GET ONE!!
As for getting it free from the GP - I was under the impression that there were conditions to be met (on benefits?) so maybe if that is the case can someone please give more information to help others?

LOL - Just what the kids want from Santa tho eh?!? oO

thank you so much for this post. we have been having a problem with our itchy little friends recently and had borrowed a comb from a friend after the lotion and plastic combs did nothing. Didnt realise I could get a comb from the doctors but with three children 4 and under I am happy to pay this to get one to my door with no hassle. heat added.

Well at this price,peeps can afford to buy it. Instead of taking from the NHS. It all adds up. Save the NHS some money for once.
#12
i bought this and found it completely useless on my son, ended up; picking most of them out. maybe he has weird hair :)

Ive been battling the little creatures with my son (had to use the cats metal flea comb out of desperation!!!! ;-0 ) - was gonna get one of these but made do with a plastic one as these were expensive. At this price I shall order. Thanks ever so much.
#14
Ok Its showing at £11.49 on the web site. They do however provide you loads of information about getting it free on prescription - no benefits required.
#15
My daughter gets nits from school every couple of weeks and the hedrin lotion does the job of killing the buggers but doesn't get the eggs out. Those plastic combs do nothing. These are absolutely fantastic - I don't know how I managed before I got one. It cost me a tenner in Boots and it was worth every penny. It just glides through the hair and grabs on to everything it passes!
#16
If you go to Warlingham Sainsburys, there are a few in one of their bargain buckets for £3.50.
#17
ASub-total: £11.49
Total Savings: £-5.50
Delivery Costs: £0.00
Grand Total: £5.99

It is still working for me - IMO it's not worth waiting for an appointment at our Dr's to get one, i'd probably have to wait 14 days to get an appointment
#18
The combs never worked for my daughters very long hair but I can see they would be better on shorter hair.

We got rid of the little blighters by filling a travel spray bottle with watered down Prioderm. I didn't want to apply the full strength lotion to her hair and diluting it didn't affect it's potency and the spray meant I could get all of her hair and scalp.

Hedrin didn't work for her at all.

These combs are great, the only ones that actually get the little buggers out! I've given up on using the solutions (? hardly!) on my children's hair. As I was becoming worried about what was in the stuf and nothing seems to work anyway. I now check once a week and use lots of tea tree oil conditioner, together with the nitty gritty comb. Some kids at school seem to have them constantly and their parents just don't seem that bothered to do anything about it! It bothers me when my children then get infected too!
Anyway, back to the comb... voted hot, fantastic price. I use an old tooth brush btw to clean the comb.
#20
Great find thanks. I bought mine from Amazon last month (£7 odd); with some headlice lotion, tea tree shampoo/conditioner and combing the little pests were gone in two weeks. However, I also had to sit everyday with my daughter (she has long fine hair) to remove the eggs stuck near the roots of hair.

Didn't know about getting from GP but useful to know for other mums at school.

Thanks for posting.
#21
Don't know if this helps anyone.
We were shocked yesterday morning when my wife noticed lice in her hair.
We had a kit in the cupboard which Asda were handing out last year.
It was the 2 part solution and the plastic bag type.
Anyway when my daughter woke she was covered, so we did the plastic bag method and I shot off to Tesco's to look for other products.
The pharmacy was closed but, a helpful assistant recomended Hedrin (not sure of the exact name).
Anyway it was about £11.99 for a 110ml bottle/sprayer, but she said if you turn up with lice stuck to a piece of cellotape as proof, you get it for nothing.
I have saved a few and am going to try this, and get a refund.
For the record the lice survived both treatments and a full spin in the washer, so they are tough buggers!.

These are great, Had ours about a year, Use on 4 kids virtually everyday, Very strong and very effective, Non of the headlice solutions work, Some do seem to repel but don't kill them, They've built up immunity. Now it's more about keeping them under control as opposed to completely getting rid of them which let's face it is virtually impossible unless you shave their hair off..!! Guarantee you'll not get 100% of the eggs out but I'd say 90-99%.

I think they should have a national nit day, Everyone would be prescribed a solution that 100% works, Free of charge, Those that don't treat their kids should be punished, Let's face it if you treat your kids other parents don't so they get them again, It frustrates me, I don't blame them because they probably think the same as some others, "What's the point if I do them and they don't".

You dont pay for childrens prescriptions and anyone can have nits , trust me go to your gp and ask for one they are in there book which shows all the items they can prescribe or as the gp nurse she will also be able to prescribe these. Im sure you can find other things to spend the cash saved on this.

totally agree with you here sadly schools dont care anymore! and often nor do a lot of parents. Im glad that nits outbreaks for me are reduced due to one being at secondary and the other a SEN school which only has 18 kids to max capacity. but i feel your pain.

Best comb for the job. Nice spot OP
#27
Found HEDRIN 15min gel (left it in overnight) the best way to get rid of them

my daughter was coming home from school all the time last year with lice and eggs, i'd tried ALL the lotions available on her which rarely worked. I normally had to pull the eggs out by hand (or nails, eww) as the other combs wouldn't work at all until someone advised me to try this comb. I paid £10, grudgingly, as i thought it wouldn't work. Absolutely amazing comb, and it has worked. This was especially good for me as i found out i was pregnant which meant i was unable to touch the lotions.
To sum up, the only thing that has worked without fail. My daughter has long straight hair and i've also used it on myself and my hair is long and naturally curly, it won't go through my hair dry, but wet and with plenty of conditioner I can use it easily too. Amazing product!!

I recommend this comb 100%, use on wet hair with loads of conditioner, took everything out the head and now use weekly to prevent an outbreak. £5.99 is a great price. As for getting it on prescription, I waited 6 weeks for my chemist to tell me they could no longer get bug busting kits with combs anymore so ended up paying £9.99 for the nitty gritty comb in Boots and its worth it.

THIS WOULD MAKE A PERFECT SECRET SANTA GIFT

thanks just bought one
my son recently had nits from his nursery i agree most parents dont bother to remove which is how other kids get them i think every child should get one free then no mums have any excuse in the first place.
and although the plastic comb does get them out doesnt catch the tiny ones or eggs so hopefully after reading about this i can get rid of them for good.
