The hair doesn't grow downward, but out from the scalp in multiple directions, the agency notes.

It's almost like it clumps together and in the middle she's got a million mad partings. You really can't get a comb through it. For school I just grab it and stick it up in a bobble to keep it out of her way... but doing anything else with it isn't worth it. It's too painful for her."

Wynter likes her hair and enjoys the attention she gets wherever she goes, her mom told the news agency, adding the girl is very confident. Her two sisters don't have the condition.

Uncombable hair syndrome is a condition that is characterised by dry, frizzy hair that cannot be combed By adolescence individuals with uncombable hair syndrome have hair that lies flat and has MANE ATTRACTION. ‘Miracle’ brush claims to banish frizz and leave hair shiny in SECONDS.

In fact, uncombable hair syndrome usually appears in childhood and the affected kids have silvery-blond or straw-colored hair, NIH notes. The amount of hair is normal, but the strands often grow slowly. Mutations in certain genes that are involved in hair shaft formation appear to be the cause.

Thousands of miles away, Shilah Yin, 9, can relate.

'Uncombable hair syndrome' is real: Meet the girls with the unruly manes© shilahmadison/Instagram Shilah Yin has uncombable hair syndrome "Shilah loves her unique hair, but that has come from constant positive reinforcement at home from friends and family," her mom Celeste Calvert-Yin, who lives in Melbourne Australia, told TODAY via email in 2017.

"As a little, little girl she often told us she was like a unicorn as they are very special and unique just like her. It brought a tear to our eye."

Shilah was born with ordinary brown hair, but the family noticed a strawberry blond fuzz peeking through when she was about 3 months old. From then on, it kept growing straight out and became even blonder. It has never grown past its current length since Shilah turned 2, her mom said.

What Is Uncombable Hair Syndrome?!

What Is Uncombable Hair Syndrome?! Many parents know the difficulty of combing through their kid's knotty hair, but one mother truly can't tame her child's hair, due to a rare genetic disease. Cara's baby, Taylor, at 5 months old started sprouting tufts of blonde fluffy hair. When her baby hair didn't start to fall out, Cara got concerned. It turns out both Cara and her husband are carriers of the mutated gene PADI3.PADI3 is a gene that causes hair to not grow downward but rather out from the scalp in multiple directions and it cannot be combed flat. When Taylor was first diagnosed with uncontrollable hair syndrome (UHS) Cara was devastated.

Here's How One Little Girl Deals With Having Uncombable Hair Syndrome . For anyone who’s ever broken a comb while detangling their hair or contemplated reaching for a weed whacker for the sake of a faster morning routine, according to science, you may have uncombable hair syndrome .

A seven-year-old Australia girl suffers from a syndrome that has us seriously scratching our heads. To top it off, they had le nerve to title the article: ‘ Uncombable hair syndrome ’ is real : Meet the girl with the unruly mane .’

The condition is often inherited, but Calvert-Yin said there's no history of it in the family. Shilah's brother Taelan has brown hair that's completely straight. The family didn't even know about the syndrome until 2016.

Shilah noticed she was different when she was about 4, and the attention from other kids and adults made her uneasy. That's when her family told her being different was awesome, Calvert-Yin said.

"Since then she has never really looked back… and now thrives on all the attention," she noted.

"Shilah has the most confident, individual personality I know and it just adds to her character."

Still, there can be challenging moments. People sometimes take photos of Shilah and touch her hair without permission. The family hears constant comments from strangers that can be offensive and hurtful at times.

Now that her parents know about uncombable hair syndrome, they let others know about it. Most people tend to think they're joking, "but we say, 'Just Google it and you will see,'" Calvert-Yin said.

Managing Shilah's mane is another challenge. The little girl hates her morning hair routine, which can last 10-20 minutes, her mom said. She sprays a detangling solution and combs Shilah's hair very gently with a wide-tooth comb.

After meeting these people, you will never complain of a bad hair day again. The little girl from Melbourne was born with normal hair , but when she was three months old, her parents Shilah's family had never heard of uncombable hair syndrome but now want to educate others about the

"Her favorite part of her hair routine is when her dad blow-dries it for her. Together they manage to comb and dry her hair so that it looks super fluffy. Shilah loves it," Calvert-Yin said.

Shilah prefers to wear her hair loose or in braids. Clips or headbands against her scalp are painful, so ponytails are out.

The family has begun documenting Shilah's experience on Instagram to share how special she is and make others aware of the syndrome.

Her parents don't know how her hair will change as she grows up, though the condition usually improves over time, with hair returning to normal by adolescence, NIH notes.

"Shilah no longer feels alone or isolated and for that we are very grateful," her mom said. "There are others around the world just like her, [and] now she knows that."
