All soap is lye soap. You cannot create anything that is soap without lye. If you are having a problem with head lice I would either suggest the shampoo they sell at the store for it or a shampoo that contains tea tree essential oil. ( Please do not put tea tree essential oil undiluted on your skin. It can cause irritation and burning if not properly diluted.) There are many online websites where you can buy shampoo that contains tea tree essential oil but I still strongly suggest you use the shampoo from the store.
