In brief: Yes
There are many unproven methods you can try; mayonnaise, eucerin cream with a hair drier, tea tree oil, and many more you can find on the internet.
The only fool proof method i know that doesn't involve medicines is to shave the head. Lice require a hair length of at least half and inch to lay their eggs (nits) and reproduce.
