Uncombable hair syndrome

Uncombable hair syndrome is a rare condition affecting the hair shaft of the scalp. The condition is characterized by dry, frizzy, blond- to light brown-colored hair that is impossible to comb and that stands out from the scalp. Both inherited and sporadic forms have been described in the medical literature. The condition is usually isolated; however, it has been associated with other syndromes in some cases.   Spontaneous improvement of symptoms often occurs in late childhood.
