Yes, so does baby oil, Vaseline, Brylcreem, and VO5 in the tube. You still have to comb it to get the eggs out. Anything with a oil or grease in it.

Instead of using pesticide based methods to rid my daughter of head lice, we applied mayonnaise to her hair. Apply before bedtime and cover hair with plastic cap, like those sold in dollar stores.
