Nit comb/vinegar: Some find that a strong solution of pickling or apple cider vinegar can help loosen the bond the nit (lice egg) has to hair. Rinsing the hair in this solution followed by combing with a fine comb can help. Another product may be needed to kill the lice, but this can help with the eggs.
