Hair Trials and Twirls

"Three girls, and then a little boy, aren't you lucky?" To be fair, she was elderly, and Albus was at a distance, and, yes, he really does have such pretty locks. It needs combing, however, so he and his dad suffered through a session that involved a great deal of conditioner and a few tears, and resulted in the top photo (wet). The morning after his hair had dried into, well, this remarkable look pictured below ... with an impressive twirl at the side. I wasn't really able to brush it into submission. It almost looks like it's spelling something out, if only one could break the code.
