In brief: Vinegar + nit comb

I have has some success over the years with vinegar as a hair rinse helping dissolve the glue that holds the nit to the hair. A comb out with a fine tooth nit comb after the treatment completes the process.
Pickling vinegar or apple cider vinegar are sometimes quicker than regular white vinegar.
