Nits are a problem that just won't go away... Until now, that is.

At last, you can protect an entire family against infestation by prescribing just one Nitty Gritty NitFree Comb - a safe, proven, one-time-only, one-per-family prescription that really works...

The Nitty Gritty Comb conforms precisely to the most recent NHS guidelines, which recommend 'wet combing' as the most effective method of treatment for head lice infestation.
GPs and prescribing nurses, health visitors and pharmacists can find it listed in
Section IX A of the NHS Drug Tariff in the Appliance section under sub-category:
Head Lice Device, Nitty Gritty NitFree steel nit comb with micro-grooved teeth.
It can also be found on the Electronic Drug Tariff on the NHS website
Be sure to click Enter on the The Electronic Drug Tariff before typing in Nitfree or head lice in the search box.

The Nitty Gritty NitFree Comb uses advanced design and old-fashioned common sense to quickly and easily remove head lice, nits and 'live' louse eggs.

Unlike any other nit comb, when used with any ordinary hair conditioner or with NItty Gritty Head Lice Solution, as part of a family's usual bath- or shower-time routine the comb will quickly and easily remove all traces of even a severe head lice infestation.

Head lice attach themselves and their eggs to our hair, and hang on tight. Nitty Gritty products remove not only the lice themselves, but also the unsightly nits (empty egg cases) that they leave behind - and even the unhatched 'live' eggs before they have a chance to hatch.
