Everyone can agree that every single child is unique — even twins are totally one-of-a-kind!
Each child has their own personality, their own looks, and their own personal style. Often, kids like to express their individuality through their clothing and hair.
Some children, though, have slightly less control when it comes to their looks. Kids like Jaili Lamb, who have genetic hair conditions, don’t exactly get to choose what their hair looks like every day.
Most kids can choose to straighten or curl their locks, or put it into a ponytail or braids, but for kids with uncombable hair syndrome, it’s a little different.
Shilah Calvert-Yin, like Jaili Lamb, was born with uncombable hair syndrome, a unique disorder that causes hair to have a wiry texture and grow directly outward from the head.
Although it’s believed that Albert Einstein had this unique condition, his looks aren’t exactly the envy of most little girls. But despite the unconventionality of her looks, Shilah decided not to let it get in the way of her dreams.
