The Nitty Gritty Nit Free Comb
The amazing, award-winning Nitty Gritty NitFree Comb quickly and easily removes not only head lice and unsightly nits (empty egg cases) but also extracts 'live' head louse eggs before they hatch. Instead of nasty chemicals, it gets the job done using advanced design and old-fashioned common sense. We are very proud of it, and if you don't think it's the best head lice product you've ever tried, we'll happily give you a full refund. At any time. That's how good it is.
What's the big idea? Just as you slide your thumb up the side to 'pop' the lid off a jar, the MicroSpiral grooves of the NitFree Comb slide through hair that's been coated with either our own Nitty Gritty Solution or any ordinary hair conditioner, and 'pop' off any louse, egg or nit that they come into contact with. It's the biggest advance in head lice treatment ever, we believe, and a million 'NitFree' families in the UK wouldn't use anything else on their children's hair.
Why It Works:
Perfect TeethNits are about half a millimetre long, and 0.2 to 0.3 millimetres wide. They
are attached to each hair strand with a strong glue, and they are impervious
to ordinary combing. But the Nitty Gritty comb's 33 microgrooved steel teeth
remove and destroy even the very smallest nits without pulling, cutting or hurting the hair they cling to.
No other comb can do this.
Mind The Gap
The teeth are separated from each other by a carefully-calculated gap, which is smaller than even the tiniest
nit. And their extra length goes all the way through even the thickest, luxuriant locks, to remove more nits in
fewer passes. Long and fine, or short and curly, the Nitty Gritty comb works equally well in any kind of hair.
Every one of the Nitty Gritty comb's 33 teeth carries a spiral "microgroove". Look closely and you'll see they're
shaped like tiny drill bits. Why? Because this makes it impossible for nits and eggs caught by the comb to slip
out and escape when they're trapped between two grooved steel teeth.
The teeth of a conventional metal or plastic comb will bend around nits, rather than gripping and dragging
them off the hair surface.
But look at our comb under a microscope and you'll see the difference. The microgroove on each tooth works
to pull a tiny spiral cutting edge through your hair. And the teeth are welded into the comb handle in a special
process, which keeps that vital microgroove working all the way through your hair. It is devastatingly effective,
breaking the hermetic sealing of the nits, to injure and destroy them without tearing or pulling your hair.
All nits and eggs that come into contact with the NitFree comb's microgrooving as they pass through the comb
teeth end up being unviable.
The special stainless steel used to manufacture the comb won't rust or tarnish. Each comb retains its tough,
stylish appearance even after prolonged immersion in water and exposure to the different chemical products -
such as permethrins, decamethrins, vinegar - found in hair treatments. The comb is designed to be boiled for
asepsis: ideal when the same comb is to be used for several family members.
The end of each comb tooth is machined precisely into the shape of a cone. The cones separate the hair
gently and direct each hair strand through the blades without snapping or tangling. The tip of the cone is then
rounded, so there is no sharp point to prick, scratch or bruise the scalp. Small children and older family
members we have asked both say that this is one of their favourite things about the Nitty Gritty comb.
Can You Handle It?
Use the Nitty Gritty Comb anywhere - even in the bath or shower! It won't rust or tarnish (any discolouraton
on back of the comb is not rust), there are no sharp corners or edges to poke or scratch you, and the comb's
non-slip grips make it easy to use even when you're up to your elbows in soapy water. And it's comfy, which
encourages users to comb deeper, more thoroughly and more often than they would with an old-style
Unlike all other combs on the market, the Nitty Gritty Comb is built to last from top-quality stainless steel,
carries a lifetime guarantee, is available on prescription and is the first choice head lice remedy of a growing
number of healthcare and childcare professionals.
