MFM mums put head lice products to the test!
Nitty Gritty is a popular nit comb created by a couple of entrepreneurial mums! The combs should be effective on their own but NG have also sent our testers a bottle of Nitty Gritty head lice solution as well! (lucky them!)
So if you're one of our Nitty Gritty testers we'd love to know:
Did it work?
How easy was it to apply?
How did it feel on your child's head and what did it smell like?
What did your child think?
Any tips to help other mums get to grips with it?
And criticisms and would you recommend it?
If you're not one of our testers but have used the product we'd still love to know what you thought - just mention you're not a tester and where you bought the product from.
Not a tester again,but I like this one.
It costs us a fortune to buy enough lotion to do all my kids so I didn't mind paying a tenner for this.I was very sceptical when we got lice a few weeks ago,and really only bought it cos we were camping and had no way to use a lotion,I was sure it wasn't going to wor,but proved very wrong,and very impressed.
Just wash hair as normal,and with generous conditoner,you first comb with a normal comb to get your knots out,then just comb through with the Nitty Gritty comb.The teeth are loner than normal and also have a groove that helps catch more of the lice and the eggs.My older daughters have long hair,my eldest has lots of hair,so getting them all and the eggs has been a problem with other combs.This one got just about all the first day.Second day there were maybe half a dozen,next day next to none.I used it again on my younger daughter a couple of weeks ago and same again there..
You have to take your time and be thorough.Take the hair into segments,do a little at a time,and wipe the comb on a bit of white kitchen towel,so you can see them as they come out.Beware they will be ALIVE.They will be moving,so check your clothes.
We use this as a preventive now,when the girls wash their hair,we comb as normal,and follow with a check with the Nitty Gritty.I use the spray on 3 in 1 repellent spray as conditioner to help with the combing.
I would recommend it.
Nitty Gritty comb is really good against Nits and lice. Previously I used Lyclear products for treatment against Head Lice, but I was very much impressed by Nitty Gritty's Nit comb. Even the Eggs were removed clearly from my son's head.
Hi, I used the Nitty Gritty comb after reading some great reviews on the internet. I have to say I found it just as good as I had hoped. I sat my daughter in the bath, and washed her hair and slathered conditioner through it. As she played, I gently combed through in sections, and wiped the comb with the eggs on to a white towel so I could see them. Perversely I rather enjoyed it!! My daughter has quite thin blonde hair so it was easy to see the eggs when her hair was wet, and I got them all out in one sitting. I checked over the next few days and they hadn't returned. SO glad I didn't have to use chemicals on her. Fabulous product!
