Science Says You Might Have An 'Uncombable Hair Gene'
Does this gif = your life?!
Are you constantly battling your bush? (Steady on.) Taming the frizz with any product you can get your mitts on?!
We feel you, boo. And so do these scientists, who've just announced that an UNCOMBABLE HAIR GENE definitely exists.
Researchers at the Universities of Bonn and Toulouse in Germany and France have identified mutations in three genes responsible for what is known as “Struwwelpeter syndrome”, aka “uncombable hair syndrome”.
Around 100 cases have been documented worldwide since it was first recorded in 1973, but docs suspect there are TONS more unrecorded. Damn straight (so to speak).
“Those who suffer from uncombable hair do not necessarily seek help for this from a doctor or hospital," says Professor Regina Betz.
Oh. And there we were thinking they'd find a cure, too. Come on 2017, bring us something good1
