Nitty Gritty Head Lice Repellent Spray

Head lice can be a real problem to deal with, especially once a member of the family has become infested. Head lice love nothing more than laying eggs and spreading to infest other hosts, that is why it incredibly important to remove them quickly. Nitty Gritty Head Lice Repellent spray is exactly what you need. Using only natural ingredients, Nitty Gritty is able to remove nasty head lice without any dangerous and harmful chemicals.

It doesn’t matter how careful you are at home, children can easily pick up head lice at school from the other children. Even if you have managed to rid your child of an infestation, they can easily become reinvested once they go back to school. Nitty Gritty Repellent can be used every day to help you fight back against this problem.

Unlike other products, which rely mainly on strong smelling chemicals, Nitty Gritty Repellent has a pleasant smell, allowing your family to go about their day as usual.

How Does Nitty Gritty Repellent Work?

Nitty Gritty Repellent works by messing with the lice’s sense of smell, making you an unattractive place for them to infest next. Nitty Gritty contains Neem oil, an ingredient that is known to repel insects and lice alike, helping to keep the lice on their current host, and not on your head.

Though little is still known about exactly why certain smells adversely affect lice, we do know that some people’s natural odour deters lice. This is why some children will stay uninfested, even if all of their friends and family have lice.

Aside from the repelling effects of Neem oil, Nitty Gritty also makes use of T Tree oil, another chemical with known properties for repelling insects. The repellent also contains Lavender oil, which helps to make the smell a little bit nicer for us humans. The odour has been balanced as to neutralize the smell so that it won’t affect humans, but is enough to put off the lice.

You can use the Nitty Gritty comb to clear up and manage the infestation, and for best results you should use Nitty Gritty Spray every day, on the whole family. The spray is environmentally friendly, and family friendly - one 250ml atomiser spray will last your family for a long time.

Pharmacist Tip

The only way to prevent future infestation is make sure that all nits and eggs have been thoroughly removed from the hair. For ease, this should be done with a nit comb. Make sure to check your family’s hair regularly to make sure you’ve got them all.

Nitty Gritty Head Lice Repellent Spray should be used generously and sprayed on hair from about a foot away. Pay close attention to the nape of the neck, the crown, and behind the ears.

The amount of spray you need to use will depend on the length and thickness of the afflicted hair.

Once applied, let the hair dry naturally on its own.
