Buy the name brand it's worth the few extra $!
I purchased this lice comb because my BFF friend who lives in Mexico, and has several kids in school there and deals with lice constantly, told me it's the best lice and nit removing comb that she's ever come across, and would actually remove the nits. Even on fine blond hair, where most nit combs are spaced too far apart to remove the eggs because the hair is so fine, this comb does the job! I decided to try another look alike brand I got here on eBay as well, because in the photos they appear almost identical and it cost a few $ less. Well, let me tell you, it looks the same from a distance, but side by side this one is WAY BETTER quality and construction. Each tooth on the comb is welded in place, where the copycat brand is not and the teeth wobble and aren't as close together. Also the edge around this comb is folded and crimped over and it gives it a more secure and comfortable grip, whereas the copycat is cut out and not folded so the edges are rather sharp and hard to hold, especially if you are combing through long hair. So, in the end, I will say that I expect this comb to way outlast the copycat brand and do a much better job along the way. I expect the teeth in the copycat comb to wobble and wiggle their way out and once that happens it's straight into the trash can, because there's no way to repair them. I've had that happen with the RID brand combs that have the red plastic base. Whatever glue holds them in place deteriorates rapidly with the Vodka and essential oil combination that I use as a lice and fungus treatment. I try to steer clear of the toxic lice shampoos as they affect my nerves and I don't want to use them on my kids either even though they aren't sensitive. It's just not worth the potential side effects, to mebecause the Vodka and essential oil treatment is more effective anyway. With the Vodka and essential oil treatment and one of these awesome combs you don't need to deal with lice or dandruff caused by fungus on the scalp. Definitely buy this comb and don't buy the copycats!Read full review
