No. Human Head Lice must have a continuous source of human blood (the scalp) in order to survive. They will dies in a matter of hours to days off the human body. The source for infection is usually hats, brushes pillows or other articles that are in contact with infested hair and then put in contact with another head of hair with in a short period of time.
