Help! I've got nits and a hair appointment - will they still cut it?

Have been combing like mad for 2 days after finding nits (lucky me - I'm a teacher surprise suprise) Am desperate for a hair cut but don't know if they will still cut it. Advice please...

No, I don't think they will unfortunately.

Not at the salon I go to nor at the barbers dc visit either.

I had this once. I did a hedrin treatment, thoroughly combed and checked in advance. They were happy to cut it as long as I'd done all above. Worth a phone call?

Not at the salon I go to. Would you want to have to cut someone's nitty head? It's only polite to cancel your appt and treat them first.

Go out now and buy a Nitty Gritty comb and use that along with plenty of conditioner, better if someone else could do it for you then they can see your scalp better. It's the only nit comb that actually works.

Thanks everyone - have cancelled and will have another go with the nitty gritty comb!
