Let me begin by saying picking nits is a nasty job.  It's not for the faint hearted, but if I can do it so can you. I hate all bugs and related things. 
 
Know that if you're purchasing virgin hair, 9 times out of 10 it will have nits. I hardly believe anyone who says they got a nit free bundle from any of the vendors I've ordered from. I ALWAYS get nits. Only once did I not, and I didn't even have to pay for that hair (silkbaseclosures). 
 
The biggest nit offender IMO is B-dogg.  This is hair that I ordered in bulk. I sent it to Sam to be wefted. 
 
Now this is not going to be pretty.  So if you don't want to know, peruse the first page for another more appropriate post,K? I won't be offended.  But I would advise you to look and learn.
 
Here are your tools:
 
Any brand of ACV and olive oil is fine. 
Indian hair is very fine so you'll have to use the smallest nit comb possible to catch those suckers.
Rattail combs don't work.  You need something with very close teeth.  Lice combs can be found at drug stores and BSS stores.  I used the red one.
 
Pour equal amounts of ACV and OO into spray bottle.  You won't need much at all, maybe 3 oz total. Spray the hair, saturating it completely. I use a big bowl to catch the hair. Brush it thoroughly to distribute ACV/OO.
 
Yeah, I go outside for this. Now, I'd usually say let it sit for a number of hours to overnight.  But I was so not looking forward to doing this, I left it in that bowl for over a month (in my workshop).Embarrassed It had no ill effect on the hair that I can tell, but I wouldn't advise it.
 
I can spot nits on dry hair much easier than if it's wet. After you've applied the treatment, do not wet the hair! It's already oily, if you wet it, it's harder to manage.
 
Spread the weft across a table, starting at one end start combing.  Here's the secret; comb pulling toward your body, placing the comb underneath the weft like so:
 
 
*sing* "Myyyy B-dogg is poppin'.  It's poppin', it's poppin', IT'S POPPIN!  Seriously, you can hear them release from the hair.
 
Notice how I hold the weft, place the comb underneath and pull the comb back. 
 
Check it out
Gross, huh?
 
Continue combing the length of the weft, wiping the comb with a paper towel periodically. If the comb gets too yucky, use that little blue brush to clean it out. Or an old toothbrush would work fine.  Flip the weft over and do the other side.  Yes, just do it! They're not all out yet.  Here come the gross pics...
 
 
Blech!Dead You have 2 options at this juncture.
 
1. Don't order any hair from overseas.
2. Pay someone to clean your hair for you(good luck). 
 
In the mean time wash the hair.  Accordian pleat the weft and fasten with a clip.
 
I soaked the hair in water and baking soda first.  It was funky smelling. Then I washed the hair with clarifying shampoo.
 
 
Notice I'm rubbing the shampoo on the hair and squeezing it in.  This is no time to tangle your hair by being rough.
 
 
Rinse the hair, condition with something with slip, brush out, and hang to dry.
 
 
Is it clean?  Nope.
 
 
If you can see nits, then you will have to repeat the combing step again. Do not wet the hair.  Do not use ACV/OO. Dry comb the hair, both sided of the weft. The stubborn ones will require that you pull them off with your fingernail. Pull all the way down to the end of the hair shaft, they hang on to the bitter end.Angry
 
Here's the hair after it was dry. The bundles don't match, but it's clean hair.  That I guarantee.Thumbs%20Up
 
 
If anyone has a different way of doing this, please post your tips and pics here. 
 
Have a good night.

For my Wags I shampooed it and put conditioner in it. Before rinsing out the conditioner, I took a nit comb similar to yours and combed both sides of the wefts, wiping the comb off after each stroke. Then I rinsed out the condtioner and let it air dry. There were still a little stragglers but few enough for me to pick them out with my fingers. And as for a tip: you can see the nits very clearly in sunlight. Its hard (but not impossible) to spot them while the hair is wet.

Yes, it is! Which is why it sat in that bowl for a month LOL.  But you know B-dogg is the worst.  I haven't run across another vendor that has as many nits.

Posted By: mocharoni
Date Posted: Sep 02 2010 at 11:25am
^^No, it applies to any hair you get with nits.  Some AV hair also has nits.  The hair I used for the tutorial I got directly from India.
 
Is it worth ordering direct?  That's a decision you'll have to make for yourself.

LOL @ Sapphyre.  But no.Geek
 
Your welcome to all who thanked me.  I'm sure most ladies will have to reference this for nit issues. 
 
As you clean your hair, take pics and post them in this thread.  I'm thinking there's gotta be a dozen different ways to do this.  Somebody said conditioner.  Show us how it's done.

Wow does this applies to kinky curly texture processed hair?  I never knew that remy hair had nits.


Posted By: mocharoni
Date Posted: Sep 11 2010 at 10:08pm
@ Velle~I'm installing the 4 0z short curly batch this week with some 12" Wagsnc.  It matches better than the other 4 oz B-dogg.
 
@Nars~I have no direct evidence that KC has nits, having never purchased that texture.  But I'd have to say it's more unlikely that a processed texture will have nits.  Just check around or ask in threads regarding KC.

She ordered it from off alibaba - and she also ordered 3 wigs. The wigs were OK but the hair had some but not a terrible amount. She nit-picked with alot of drama and then was good to go - She rinsed the hair in some tea tree water as a disinfectant.

Mocha, I am expecting wags today and my stomach is literally in knots at the very thought of nits. I have seen plenty bugs, but actually touching them is a different story. I hope I don't have to do this. BUT IF I do, I want to personally thank you for this tutorial. If not for you, I probably would have just sprayed it with Raid!
Thanks girlie!


Posted By: mocharoni
Date Posted: Oct 01 2010 at 5:41pm
LOL!  I'm glad you didn't do that, coco.  And you're welcome!
 
Soooo, did the hair have nits?  Wags isn't as bad a B-dogg so there shouldn't be very many (relative, I know).
 
My husband told me when he contracted lice as a kid, his mom sprayed his head with Raid.Stern Smile  Explains a lot.Wacko

Ooh, this is a good idea.

I'm all set now. Just purchased my lice combs this evening.

I just want to say thank you for this tutorial, Mocharoni! Star I'm just getting into the weave game and never thought I would deal with nits since I am super squeamish about things like this, but I realize this is one of the issues I will have to face if I want to wear better quality hair.

I just got mine back from sam and my hair did not have not one nit in it. I dont know if sam cleaned it or if bdogg sent to him like that but I was so happy I didnt have to deal with that. Even though the hair was clean and beautiful, all three batches have different curly patterns. NOT SURE WHAT TO DO



Posted By: mocharoni
Date Posted: Nov 14 2010 at 8:37pm
Lucky you!  Check again just to be sure.
 
But that happened with my Wags when he wefted it.  There were nits when I sent it out, and it came back clean.  I think the hackling removed the hairs with nits.
 
About the B-Dogg curl patterns.......that vendor isn't consistent at all, IMO.  Can you put the looser curls in back?

No.  Nits are most likely to be present in virgin hair, particularly Indian.
 
I have, however discovered nits in my processed Chinese.

Thanks for this tutorial, I've found that even the expensive Indian hair will sometimes have nits. Not really that big a deal if they can be removed with this procedure. Will have to try it next time!

Posted By: mocharoni
Date Posted: Dec 13 2010 at 11:11pm
Depends where you purchase the hair.  If you're ordering direct, I'd expect it. 
 
But always check for nits, no matter the vendor.

Why does the hair come with nits in it? If youre paying so much for the hair, why cant the vendor make sure its clean? I dont think i have the stomach for this process! Dead

Wagman offers a Superior line, which is supposed to be free of nits.  You could try it..........
 
I ordered Wagsnc in bulk and had it wefted by someone else.  I'd heard that their bulk hair was coarser and curlier, it was.

Posted By: Sable
Date Posted: Feb 05 2011 at 3:43pm
So I was hoping my hair addicts online hair wouldnt have em.. but I found quite a few dead lice babies and sum weird purple seed things. so I tried to jus clean the hair first but I see im gonna have to go into my basemant and use my dogs flea comb.. This is like soooo ewwwwwwwwy. I think that it should be illegal to sell human hair th bugs in it.. totally un hygenic. And so far Im not that impressed with virgin indian hair.. my hair came wavy instead of curly (which i didnt mind) The weft construction is tacky and the hair feels dry.. And not i gotta remove bugs?! Next time ill stick with a company that removes the nits for me DeadConfused
 
Ok edit:
So I have washed and co washed this hair a few times.. and most of the shells have come off.. I used a sulfate free shampoo by organix and its a shea butter formula..that really did nothing for the hair so I went ahead and replenished the moisture and further cleaned the hair with a dove shampoo( we all know how great their products are :) and conditioned with milk by H20 I was pleased with the cleanliness but still saw shells eeeek... so I went on to get a bowl a fill it with hot water and some Pantene color revival conditioner.. Immediately the hair began to feel very silky... so I jus let the hair sit in the water in a big ball ( Im aware this causes tangling lol) and  went through each track and detangled the tracks raveled them together rinsed in luke warm water and did the entire process over.. so by the 3rd conditioning the hair was soft and i jus left it to dry.. This morning I looked at the tracks and there were very few shells so Im going to go ahead and do the acv /evoo and then thats it.. if I still find shells Ill be pissed lol.. but Im jus glad all those dead bugs/nits are mostly gone... Phew that was a long post!Big smileLOL

Not sure if anyone answered the question- but they are already dead when you get the hair--- what you are looking at are the shells- so you should be fine.  Lice need a live host to survive- and once cut off then there is no live host

Excellent demonstration. Had I saw this 5 days ago, I would have surely went for the Raw Hair vs. getting Superior NC. I was afraid of what I would have to do nit hair but as long as I know they arent live, I'll deal to have true curly NC vs. Wavy NC. LOL!!! Great job though. ClapClapClap

I just cleaned all of my hair and plan on installing later.
 
My question is how can I be sure I got it all clean? I ordered the hair in Jan and all of the bugs in it should be dead, right? Since it can only survive for a short time without a host. I'm just so scared of installing and it not being clean enough. Cry

Shea, if you've already cleaned the hair, it should be easy enough for you to check again to see if you missed any.  Look when the hair is dry, you can't see anything when it's wet.
 
Nits are shells, not live bugs.  There is no danger of contracting lice by installing your hair.Big smile
 
Congrats for taking on a cleaning, who's hair is it?

This is really great info, but I had no idea most of this hair had nits, that would completely gross me out if I wasn't aware. Thanks for the info!

I read through this thread a couple of weeks ago thinking, "that will never be me."  Cut to last week, and the Pure Straight hair I ordered from Indique not only had tons of split ends, but it also had nits.  I just cleaned one pack this evening and will do the second tomorrow.  Not how I prefer to spend my time, removing nits, but I'm thankful for this thread because now I know how to.

Great Post!! Thanks Moca! I have 2pc of Wags Raw at my doorstep. Can't say that I am looking forward to removing the nits but I appreciate you so much for taking the time out to create this post. I am going to purchase my tools now!!!

I have one question....I just got my BDoggs yesterday, should I do the nit removal first i.e. olive oil and apple cider vinegar or reseal the weft with my aleene's stop fray which takes like 5 days to cure? Please help a sista out! Thanks ya'll

Ouch Sorry I didn't see this sooner. 
 
You should clean the hair first.  Sealing after cleaning, washing, and conditioning.
