They might be lice, be careful! I was at a barn last year and was for sure I did not have lice, turns out the bugs were full grown and brown(normally lice aren't large and brown). The BO's daughter was complaining of bugs in her hair and BO was certain it was not lice because of size/color...3 weeks later I had them.
Go ahead to the store and get some Tea Tree Oil(found in ethnic hair section)
Pour a bottle or two(depending on hair length) on scalp/hair shaft and sit for about 30 minutes then using a lice comb, comb out. Your hair will be greasy as all get out, but it removes all of them and calms the itching etc. It may take 2 treatments. Wash your hair afterwords, if you feel your hair is still dirty; wash with clarifying shampoo 2-3 times.
I'm a hair stylist, it works :)
ETA: if the itching/biting is occurring around your neck and ears, it's most likely lice.
