Great find. Ideal for my neighbour's daughter.

who will admit to needing this personally ?

Do nits comb their hair?:giggle:

Lol.......................

handy thanx :thumbsup:

this will be great for my pubic lice problem thanks!
once i'm done with it the neighbours can have it for their hair.

Why don't they just send them out to schools? Much quicker!

A tip for anyone who can't / doesn't get one of these.

If you have kids, get a Nitty Gritty comb (Thats the brand name). They're £10 in Boots, and the best nit comb available (any respecting parent will tell you ;))

But you don't need to buy them. They're available on prescription, and as children get free prescriptions...quids in!
Your doctor may not know about it, but you can go to the Nitty Gritty website and get a downloadable leaflet to show your doctor where to look for the right code.

Our 13 month old got headlice which before it was noticed, my wife and I also got. Quite fasinated by them if i'm honest and like most saddo's online i did some research and found they have been in our hair for over 10,000 years and have valves that close their oxygen intake as soon as they come in contact with water so to not drown. Still i was happy when they were gone

Couldn't agree more, I got one of these through my doctor, had to print off the leaflet and give it to reception, the prescription was ready a few days later (easy peasy)
By FAR the best nit comb we've used, and we've tried a few, lol.

Talking about headlice.... who's head is starting to itch?

thanks...

good deal Tabs heat added!!!

Wish i had known this last year! I spent a fortune trying to find a shampoo that actually worked... so frustrating when you finally get rid of your kids nits, then they go back to school and the kids with parents who don't bother getting rid of theirs give them straight back.

Fab find - I'm a teacher and spend a lot of time imagining I have caught headlice from the children!!!

Tea tree oil and mint conditioner is the best I think. Apparently they're not too keen on it. Condition the hair and leave it on while you comb the nit comb through.

Nits, hate tea tree oil, once I managed to clear my daughters hair, I'd add a few drops to water in a spray bottle and spray it over her hair before school. didn't keep them away totally, but I like to think it helped a bit, lol.
