Can you help to tell our remarkable story?

We are three London mums who got sick and tired of using horrible chemicals that we wouldn't dream of putting on our gardens, let alone our children. Because we don't have a huge advertising budget, a PR company, or a big corporation backing us, there are millions of families out there who don't know about Nitty Gritty yet.
Amanda, Gill and Lillan - are available for interviews, photos and radio and TV appearances, and we are about to sell our millionth Nitty Gritty NitFree Comb.

Most of our customers tell us that they heard about Nitty Gritty by word of mouth, although we have had many very positive mentions in The Times ('Top Five Quick Fixes For Family Emergencies'), The Guardian ('the Rolls-Royce of nit combs'), the Daily Telegraph and on ITV1's Loose Women and This Morning. .

And our best-known customers, Jonathan Ross and Jason Donovan, are NitFree dads who have both gone on the record, without us even asking, to tell the world how much they love our products. .

And that is a great thing - because in 21st century Britain children are still being bullied, and feeling ashamed because of head lice and nits. Which is so wrong. If you've got nits you're likely to be picked on, teased, taunted, socially excluded and, in the most extreme cases, might even be physically attacked.

As mums we have been through 'head lice hell' with our daughters many times, and so now we are on a mission to protect millions of parents and children all over Britain and beyond from the misery of head lice infestation.

We've had lots of great press and media exposure. Butů
So far, no-one has really told the whole remarkable story of how we've gone from kitchen sink to High Street supermarket.

Please contact us via at any time with any questions you might have about us, our products or head lice and nits.

You can read more about us, and how and why we started Nitty Gritty in the About Us section of our website.
