Every day is a “GREAT” hair day

Katelyn Samples, 33, told the media, “We have zero clue why he has it but we’re so glad he does.” The Atlanta native and her husband Caleb, also 33, first noticed something was awry when Locklan turned 5 months old and his hair started to grow. “It was coming in straight up and so soft and fuzzy.” Her 1-year-old son was diagnosed with “Uncombable Hair Syndrome” (UHS) — a rare condition afflicting about 100 people around the world. “As it continued to grow it never laid down.” Fearing the worst, the distraught mom did a “deep Google dive” into the affliction, a genetic condition in which a structural anomaly in the hair prevents it from being flattened or combed, leaving it chronically unkempt. UHS generally affects kids between the ages of 3 months to 3 years, although patients as old as 12 have been reported. And while there have only been 100 recorded cases, medical experts say some could be unreported, according to NHS.

Unsurprisingly, Locklan’s distinctive follicles have made him a “little celebrity” with strangers approaching the family wherever they go, according to Samples. “They ask about his hair, and sometimes even ask to touch it!” gushed the proud parent. “We really can’t go anywhere without at least one person making a comment on his hair. It is almost always from a good place!” Unfortunately, not all the gawkers have been so kind. Lock’s hair is truly a source of joy and we celebrate it,” gushed Samples, who created an Instagram account following Locklan’s diagnosis in October to share pics of her son and spread awareness of UHS. Entitled @Uncomable_Locks, the page already has almost 18,000 followers. “If you think your kid might have it, go inquire and ask questions and be your child’s advocate.” Currently, there are no treatments for UHS, however, doctors say the condition tends to go away on its own over time.

Hair raising humor

I went into the barber today and asked to have my hair cut like Tom Cruise…
He lifted me up and sat me on a cushion…

What type of hair will Putin soon have on his head?

A guy walks into a bar and orders a beer. “I recently entered a competition to see who gained the most weight and lost the most hair,” he tells the bartender. “What the heck? Why?” the bartender asks. “Oh, they didn’t call it that,” the guy replies. “It was advertised as ‘high school class reunion.'”

My uncle Phil took this medicine that was guaranteed to grow hair on a billiard ball.
It worked, but now he likes to sleep on the pool table.
