Adorable baby has 'Uncombable Hair Syndrome' and is nicknamed 'Einstein 2' by his parents

A baby girl has been diagnosed with an ultra-rare condition which means her gravity-defying hair is literally impossible to tame. Taylor McGowan, 17 months, is one of just a handful of kids around the world with a known case of Uncombable Hair Syndrome. It causes her bright white hair to stand on end despite efforts by her parents Cara and Tom McGowan - who both have straight brown hair - to brush and style it. The adorable tot attracts crowds wherever she goes and former mental health worker Cara, 32, says she is stopped "nine or ten times" on a trip to the shops. While most people are friendly, Cara says she has been accused of bleaching Taylor's messy mane and asked whether she "stuck her fingers in a light socket". But the family love her unique look and have nicknamed her 'Einstein 2.0' after the scientist, whose shock of static white hair is also rumored to have been caused by UHS.
