Noticd ds has been scratching, and found a solitary nit jumping around.
Which is the best to buy?
I've only bought once before, and it made your hair all greasy.
I'm going to do myself too as I feel itchy!

The only thing I use is a nitty gritty comb.

Nine of the expensive solutions work in my experience.

Wash hair, tons of conditioner on hair and comb through with Nitty Gritty comb and wipe onto kitchen roll. repeat 2 -3 days later!

Thankyou, can you do that on yourself though? I don't even know if Ive got any, but I feel all itchy.

If dd has them I comb through my hair in the shower. I have never found any though I just itch because I know she has got them!!
