We are far from shy in talking about nits in hair on KiddyCharts. We all know how rubbish it is getting them.

They are a fact of family life, and if your child has reached the age of ten and you haven’t experienced the joy of going through your kids hair, looking for the little s*ds then you are indeed blessed.
Now, before you all start leaving in your droves, and jabbering on about parent bloggers being paid to write, remember that THIS blogger has spent what feels like a solid two weeks of her life sorting through her son’s and daughter’s hair, and dealing with tantrums from nit combing.
The washing in and then washing out of nit shampoo on the market has left me with visible scars *almost*
Yes, I have been lucky enough to attend an event on this product, but I am positive that this will make a difference to those of you that come up against these hair scalp ninja’s.
Having spent a couple of hours talking to KIT & COCO, they really know what they are talking about, and most importantly, the product has been designed so that nits in hair doesn’t have to cause as much drama as you might think.
Here are the reasons why this treatment will work for you:
1. It only needs ONE treatment
I have spent weeks getting rid of nits in my kids hair. The head lice and the eggs keep coming back. You think you’ve got them and then “Bam” you miss one of the little blighters, and its back to nit combing the hair, and using those horrible shampoos all over again.
KIT & COCO takes one application, of 45 minutes and that is it. It has been scientifically proven to kill 100% of head lice and nits. I was told this was because it works in a rather clever way….
But hang on, why is this product different then?
Well, it stops the eggs, which are often the main reasons for re-infestation, from attaching to the hair by attacking the glue they use to do it. Genius. If they can’t stick to you, they can’t hatch.
2. You don’t need to wash it out
The previous treatments for nits on the market are very chemical heavy, unless you have the patience to sit and use a nit comb every single night for two weeks.
Who wants to do that with a screaming toddler? Shampoos can take an age to wash out to the point that your rather independent minded daughter would be happy to go to school with hair like that *coughs*
KIT & COCO is all plant based, with one of the main ingredients being Coconut oil. It is actually good for the hair; nourishing it, as well as keeping the nits away.
There is absolutely not need to wash it out. None at all.
3. It doesn’t leave hair greasy
Sometimes when using other product, I have had to wash my kids hair three or four times to get away that greasy feeling after treatment. These natural products just don’t leave the hair like that at all. Your children will therefore not throw a hissy fit as soon as they see what you did to their hair.
4. It is designed with fun for kids in mind
Having nits in hair is NOT fun.
It isn’t fun for parents, but sometimes it is easy to forget it isn’t fun for the kids either.
They often have to sit for an age while their parents comb through their hair, searching in vain for that elusive nit that’s managed to hide behind their left ear.
The characters, and colours associated with the brand, are appealing to children. They even have some stickers within the complete treatment kit to keep your kids entertained for a bit while you go on those nit hunts.
5. Its not just about cure, but prevention too
Once you have, you hope, got rid of those head lice and nits; what do you do next?
Or what do you do when you get that dreaded letter from school to say that nits have been discovered, so everyone needs to be extra vigilant?
Before everyone starts tie-ing up their daughters hair in buns tighter than a Scotsman’s Purse, KIT & COCO have a range of prevention remedies, as well as treatments.
For boys, there is a mousse, and for the girls a spray and a hairband. The company told me that the spray would be OK on its own, but the hairband gives added protection, specifically in an area of the scalp where nits are most prone to congregate.
My son, now he is getting a little older, likes to style his hair in the morning with a bit of mousse. Supposedly, spiky hair is cool. Spikey and nit free hair would be even cooler methinks.
6. Its completely natural
None of us like putting nasty stuff in, or on our kids…..even if it is to stop some more nastier stuff taking up residence in their hair.
All the ingredients within the KIT & COCO range natural, so much so, as I said above, you don’t need to wash it out. What’s not to like?
7. It smells nice
Other nit treatments small awful. This does not.
In fact, when I was being shown the product, I sniffed a wrist and got some on my nose. I didn’t immediately keel over. In fact, it smelt quite apealling. *nuff said*
8. Its French chic
The company that distributes the product in the UK is This Earth; they are also looking to get a mosquito repellent approved that is also natural, available for pregnant women and has a wristband version that lasts for 15 days. THAT is something I would also like to see.
However, the company that manufacturers the product is French, and therefore inherently chic. Who knew that nits could be sexy?
OK, I made that last one up a bit, so I had a nice round number of benefits. You forgive me now though, don’t you?
So KIT & COCO’s range is well worth a look, wouldn’t you agree? If it means less pain for the kids, and for you when nits strike, anything is worth a bash, right?
This is a sponsored post, but I do think that this is a great product for dealing with nits in hair, and all these benefits are 100% real. Why not check it out? The complete treatment is £15.95, with refills at £10.95 each for a pack of four. The hairband prevention pack is £12.50, and the preventative mousse is £9.50. Both prevention methods last 24 hours.
