In brief: The two all-natural
...Lice removal methods are: shaving, and fine-toothed-comb removal after a dilute vinegar rinse (vinegar loosens the glue with which nits are stuck to hair shafts).

Using conditioner will make it easier to use the comb to get the lice & nits out. Doing this 1-2 times a week will help keep them from getting established.

The vinegar and the conditioner close the hair cuticle of the hair and that is why it is easier to bomb.

In brief: Smother them
You can cover your scalp with petroleum jelly (such as vaseline) and leave it on overnight (covered with a shower cap) and it will smother the lice.
