Natural Bug Beaters

Keep nits away without the chemical nasties...

Created by three mums who were fed up with the constant battle with nits, the Nitty Gritty Comb works without any chemicals, on hair coated with any ordinary hair conditioner. It is the only head lice product which is guaranteed to remove not only even the smallest head lice and unsightly nits – empty egg cases – but also crucially even the unhatched 'live' head louse eggs. Because it doesn't need any chemical pesticides, it's the safest head lice product to use on children and adults who have asthma, eczema and a wide range of pre-existing health conditions. Available from pharmacies as well as online direct from nittygritty.co.uk and is fully approved for NHS prescription. RRP £8.99.

Puressentiel’s Lice Repellent Spray is a 100 per cent natural repellent, which uses Citriodol®, derived from lemon eucalyptus essential oil, has 24 hours proven efficacy to repel lice and stop infestations from occurring. The handy spray, which works in just 10 minutes, cleanses the scalp and soothes itching thanks to the inclusion of lavender floral water and lavandin, without leaving the hair feeling greasy or damaged. One bottle of Lice Repellent Spray provides up to two months of daily protection, working all the time to stop any future infestations happening. The range is suitable for children aged 3+. Available from Boots and selected pharmacies nationwide (RRP £9.99).
