Have you ever heard about Einstein hair? Well, if you haven’t we are here to explain! Einstein hair is a condition that is caused by a mutated gene which creates abnormal heart-shaped hair follicles instead of round ones. Scientist Albert Einstein, who is famous for his frizzy do, is also said to have been a sufferer, that’s why this condition is named after him!

Evelyn Cubbedge, of Lawtey, Florida, USA, has Uncombable Hair Syndrome, a gene mutation that affects less than 100 people worldwide, causing disorderly strands that cannot be combed flat. The five-years-old straw-like blonde locks naturally stand up and never grow long enough for her to need a haircut. Suffering from the same condition that Albert Einstein was believed to have, strangers, say that the girl looks like the 19th-century scientist and often ask if she was electrocuted.

She looks so adorable and cute! We also found out that she never had a haircut! Her mom cuts what she can to make her feel better, but it’s usually just one or two long pieces. Amazing! Evelyn understands that her hair is different than everyone else’s, so for the most part it doesn’t bother her.

Evelyn’s family is going to keep her hair as is. Her mom said: “It’s what makes her unique. We’re not going to do anything about it unless it bothers her more as she gets older.” What an incredible story and adorable girl!

      My son was diagnosed with this over 5 years ago. We all love his permanent Rockstar hair! I have all the documents from the doctor as well. I would post a picture but I don't know how.
