Could Webbing Clothes Moths live in human hair?

Cecelia Abraham asked the Naked Scientists:
   I saw the question about could a case moth enter someone's body through the sphincter. I was recently exposed to a closet with what I believe are webbing clothes moths. I'm worried that these things have gotten into my hair & survived. I feel itchy but it could be psychosomatic. Could they live in human hair on a person's head?
What do you think?
