I went to watch my daughter's swimming lesson today, and saw a kid at the pool who i'm SURE has "uncombable hair syndrome"- and no, i did not take a photo of him- that would be creepy. The condition is also known as "pili trianguli et canaliculi" - the hair shafts are triangular and grooved. Most children are otherwise normal. In a related event- i bought a comb for the 1st time in my life. Every time i use it i think about my Grandfather combing his neat straight grey hair.
