He took care of his face but ...

Dandruff is a menace that must be fought... and whipped!

Lucky Tiger Dandruff Remedy was first marketed around 1917 by the Lucky Tiger Dandruff Company of Kansas City.

Lucky Tiger produces a range of men's hair products and is still in business.

Michelle Obama's Natural Hair

At last! Michelle Obama was spotted rocking her natural hair...

Twitter user @meagnacarta posted a photo of Michelle with a curly, voluminous low ponytail, and a wide, printed headband around her edges.

It's not clear when or where it was taken, but it didn't take long for the rest of Twitter to collectively freak out. Meagnacarta's post racked up over 16,000 retweets, and prompted a whole lot of responses, too.

Uncombable Hair Syndrome

You think you’re having a bad hair day? Consider the plight of this little girl…

Lyla-Grace Barlow’s frizzy hair is the result of an extremely rare medical condition called Uncombable Hair Syndrome. There are only an estimated 100 cases known today. Previous sufferers include Albert Einstein.

The condition is caused by a gene mutation which means that Lyla’s hair follicles are heart-shaped rather than round.

The result is an unruly nest of knots and tangles that is painful to comb.

More about Lyla-Grace’s story here. Medical explanation here.

Shower Hair Art

Wondering what to do with those stray hairs that stick to your shower stall? Why not turn them into art?

That’s what Lucy Gifford did in her series, Shower Hair Masterpieces.

Lucy, from Mobile, Alabama started creating shower hair art out of boredom when her husband was out of town. Now it’s become an obsession.

Think of the money you could save on art supplies!

Valerie June

Valerie June ...

The biggest reason I decided to lock my hair is because I was spending hours at the beauty shop, and I wanted to have my life back. I spent 18 years going to the beauty shop. I do not want to go to the beauty shop again in my life.
