Nitview® Ledcomb is a device that incorporates ultraviolet light (400-405nm, light range naturally visible to the human eye) and detachable comb with micro-channelled teeth for the effective removal of both lice and nits.
The lice, their eggs and nits (the empty egg cases) glow under the UV light making them very easy to find amongst the hairs and then remove with the comb.
The comb section can be easily removed to enable the UV light to confirm that all lice and eggs have been removed and help to avoid the recurrence of the infestation. The light can be used to check clothing, towels, bed linen etc.
- Is safe for use on both wet and dry hair.
- Does not rely on insecticide chemicals.
- Will not cause resistance to treatment.
- Will not cause allergy or irritation
