In brief: Some other person
Head lice are a human only parasite (no animals) that has many protective properties.
It can hold its breath for more than 8 hours, which makes suffocating them difficult. Their egg casings are somewhat protective so if they are not removed during treatment, a new batch can start over. They are difficult to see, so they easily hide in brushes, hats, scarfs, etc.
