Five-year old Lyla-Grace Barlow has a condition called Uncombable Hair Syndrome. Yes, you read that correctly. Her hair is uncombable. According to Wikipedia the condition is caused by a mutated gene which creates abnormal heart-shaped hair follicles instead of round ones.
Lyla’s parents, Alex and Mark Barlow, have tried countless hair products and spent hours trying to drag a comb through her hair.
Lyla’s Mother told The Sun
“When Lyla was little it used to stand up like Sonic the Hedgehog, like a little white afro.”
“It’s so hard to get a hairbrush through it and she cries when I try.”
“I have to be really really careful and it definitely takes a lot more love than other kids but we would never change it.”
