hair problems

‘Did she stick her finger in the power socket?,’ strangers asked. They were being ignorant, insensitive.’: Little girl embraces ‘fuzzy’ hair caused by Uncombable Hair Syndrome, ‘I look like a lion with a crazy mane’

“She was picture perfect, blonde hair, blue eyes, so cliché. But around 3 months, we noticed something different. Her hair was growing straight up, not flattening down. It glistened in the light. ‘What’s wrong with her hair?’ Complete strangers would peer into her stroller, stare, take pictures without asking. One lady said, ‘Your daughter looks just like Doc Brown, the crazy scientist from Back to the Future!’ Our little girl was so special.”

‘We nicknamed her Chucky, from the horror films!’ Her hair got crazier, bigger. Wiry, matted, like it was crimped.’: Mom shocked by daughter’s ‘wool-like matted mess’ blonde hair, learns of rare ‘Uncombable Hair Syndrome’ diagnosis

“She was born with a head of thick, jet black, fluffy hair! But overnight, her hair came through poker straight, and pure white-blonde. She looked like a newborn, fluffy chick! Her hair looked full of static, wiry, like sheep’s wool. Slowly, it became worse. Hard to control. It got bigger, wilder as she grew, painful to brush. A lady mentioned it, but to be honest, I thought nothing of it. Then I realized it might be a problem.”
