In brief: Salt water bathing
The only natural way to get rid of lice is regular (several times per day) swimming in salt water making sure the head gets soaked with the salt water. You can comb out lice but no natural product will get rid of them. Remember to wash your sheets, sterilize your house and take care of other family members at the same time.

In brief: Popular remedy
Lice are becoming resistant to many insecticides.
I strongly recommend apple cider vinegar and a metal comb. Google 'apple cider vinegar head lice school nurse' for instructions. The metal comb is available on the internet. It works like a charm.
