Uncombable Hair Syndrome
Uncombable hair syndrome is a REAL thing. It may seem odd if you’ve never heard of this particular syndrome, but it’s much like exactly what it sounds like. It’s been gaining some insight around the internet lately, which is why we wanted to be sure we provide you with some insight and education around the topic in case you’ve been eager to find out more. So often we think of feeling frustrated about our hair, but if you’ve felt like your hair is uncombable it might actually be. Ok, enough chatter let’s get into some of the details about uncombable hair syndrome.
Many people who experience uncombable hair syndrome literally struggle to actually put a comb through their hair. Many experts on this particular syndrome suggest that if you’ve had experience(s) where you tried to do something as simple as comb your hair and either couldn’t get the comb through your hair or even broken the comb you may be dealing with uncombable hair syndrome. While detangling hair can be a struggle for many, this is an extreme case. Like we said, breaking combs is not uncommon for those that have this syndrome.
Interestingly, uncombable hair syndrome is particular common in children with very light hair colors. Many of the pictures that are floating around online are children with this syndrome. Light hair colors are colors like blonde, or even a silver type of hue. What really sets those with this hair syndrome apart is that the hair is often dry and frizzy. Some explain the hair texture to appear or feel a bit wiry or coarse in a sense as well. Unfortunately because this is a syndrome found in young children, it can be tricky for parents to find ways to really cope with styling their children’s hair. However, many parents have taken to embracing the natural hair texture instead of fighting it leaving parents and children much happier than continuing to try to comb the hair.
As far as another twist with this hair syndrome, it’s said that most that have it experience a shift in their hair texture as they get older. It’s a rather fascinating syndrome, and unfortunately there is no known cure as of now. However, as uncombable hair syndrome becomes more well-known we’re confident that researchers are going to work on finding out more about this syndrome, where it comes from and developing a cure to make uncombable hair more, well…combable.
If you feel your child may have developed this hair syndrome, the important thing to consider is using the right hair care products and establishing healthy hair habits. Since the hair is often dry and frizzy already, applying healthy and consistent hair habits with your child will help you to do the best you can with preventing any damage from occurring as time goes on. And of course, work with your child on embracing and enjoying their hair as much as possible!
