What’s the deal with the “cowlick”?

Do you ever wonder what a cowlick really is?

As we all know hair is produced below the skin of the scalp in follicles. The size and shape of these follicles affects the texture and wave pattern of our hair as it grows outward. Hair follicles aren’t perfectly vertical…they’re actually slighted tilted, causes hair to grow in specific directions from person to person. So called, “cowlicks” are anomalous growth patterns in hair in which the follicles in specific area of the scalp growly strongly in a different than the surrounding area, causing the hair to stick up or outward…sometimes quite prominently. What to do about them? The right cut and style can help and the eye of a great Stylist can help manage and mask it!
