My daughter's hair will not lay down. Ever. From her first few days of exploring this big world, that little certain area of her hair has been sticking straight up. Even after a bath, clean and wet and laying flat upon her sweet head, at the first breath of dryness, those well-postured strands rise again. She's such a cutie.
