How often we want to whine about unremarkable things, whine, and fail to show gratitude. The hair may not be styled the way we wanted it to be or the curls may not last very long, which can make us dissatisfied in the morning. Sheela Calvert-Yin, a 10-year-old Melbourne resident who suffers from uncombable hair syndrome, is a peculiarity in herself, thus there is no point in talking to her about it.

Sheela was one of the 100 or so people on our globe who have this syndrome. When the hair is structured in such a way that it is nearly impossible to comb, this is an uncommon oddity.

This characteristic typically appears in early childhood, when the hair turns silvery or straw-colored.

Sheela has blonde hair that often sticks out in odd directions and is very delicately curling, tangled, and mischievous.

Just not able to put them on. By the time they reach puberty, according to doctors, they should “lay down,” but nobody is sure if this will actually happen.

According to Celeste, the girl’s mother, the infant was born with typical dark hair, and around three months old, light “needles” started to pierce them. The ancestors’ hair started to thin away, and “needles” started to grow in their place. What’s most intriguing about these “needles” is that they obviously grew at a right angle to the skull and got lighter and lighter with time.

Schiele’s hair stopped growing when he was 2 years old, having grown to the current length. Doctors claim that “uncombable hair syndrome” is more frequently inherited, but the Calvert-Yin family does not have any members with this type of hair, despite learning that in theory this is possible with Shila’s birth.

When she was about 4 years old, the baby realized that her hair was different from other people’s. Even then, she started to get a lot of attention from kids and adults, which bothered the girl.

Sheila eventually learned to appreciate her hair and now feels unique owing to the encouragement of family and friends.

She frequently compared herself to unicorns, saying that they are as unique and special like her, according to Celeste. Sheela is a really self-assured person, and her hair looks great on her.

Of course, passersby continued to notice the girl with the strange hairstyle; occasionally, they made remarks about it or touched her hair without her consent, which Shila did not really appreciate.

As my mother puts it, “We now strive not to become irritated in these situations, but to communicate about the ‘uncombable hair syndrome’ so that as many people as possible learn about this oddity. Most people initially assume that we are joking, but when we respond, “Google it,” they learn that we are not.

Such hair requires a lot of maintenance. Sheela abhors the morning combing process, which takes at least 20 minutes, with all her heart. Celeste uses a comb with unique teeth and several sprays on her hair in an attempt to lay it down. Her hair turns fluffy like a dandelion as a result of the drying process, which she enjoys when her father does.

Her parents set up a social media account for her so she wouldn’t feel self-conscious, and it has thousands of followers already.

According to Celeste, “Sheila no longer feels lonely because of social media; she knows that there are still people on this planet with the same hair as her.”
