Your messy hair may be linked to your genes

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – Scientists say they may have figured out why some children have hair that is tough to part or keep from sticking out at funny angles.

It’s called “Un-combable hair syndrome.”

The self-explanatory situation often occurs for kids who are between 3 months to 12-years-old.

The literally hair-raising condition hasn’t been delved into much over the decades, but in two separate studies, researchers found mutations in three-genes that are linked to the hair follicle.

Uncontrollable hair syndrome usually fades away as children get older and it obviously isn’t life-threatening.

But officials say any sort of research into hair can help biologists with learning more about normal hair growth and the proteins involved.
