Mom Sheds Light on Rare Condition that Can Cause Kids to Lose Consciousness While Being Groomed

The condition typically affects children between the ages of five and sixteen and is triggered by someone getting their hair brushed, braided, curled, trimmed or blow-dried.  Children triggered by hairstyling can lose consciousness or convulse as a result.
