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 cost-effective our Nitty Gritty Comb is.
Here’s what one practice nurse wrote to us recently:
Sister Amanda Wixey, Practice Nurse, Birmingham
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 almost a million British families using our award-winning Nitty Gritty Comb… and more parents and teachers discovering just how good it is every single day.
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 (visible) head louse infestation. This is not only ineffective, but also invariably extremely damaging to the child and his or her family.
We have done our utmost to support nurses who work in schools and in the community, supplying complimentary Nitty Gritty NitFree Combs, bright informative leaflets and posters particularly in deprived areas.
