Why NitWits?


  • NitWits was founded by a school nurse, Berit Pratt MPH, who had many years of hands-on experience and knowledge about head lice prior to opening our Head Lice Treatment Salon in 2005.
  • We employ school nurses that we are proud to have on our staff. All our staff members undergo extensive training, supervised by experienced practitioners.
  • NitWits is the first salon of it’s type in the Boston area specializing exclusively in lice and nit removal since 2005.
  • We are always discreet; every family is treated in a private room setting, with DVD players available in every room for kids’ entertainment during treatment.
  • We stand by our work with a 100% guarantee.
  • We are an environmentally friendly company: we never use any pesticides or chemicals in our head lice treatment products that could be harmful to humans and the environment.
  • We are a proud member of “Cambridge Local First”, “Sustainable Business Leader Program” and “Green America”.
