Treatment for Cow Licks

Q: Is there any help for cow licks? I have always had such a dang problem with one. It grows in such a way that it makes me look like I have a bald spot even though my stylist says it's just how the hair is growing in that area. I would love to cut my hair short but can't because of that!
A: There is actually a technique that some stylists have used to provide a temporary relief to more extreme cowlicks. It involves using a permanent wave solution to restructure the hair and redirect it. The perm can actually help the hair affected by the cowlick lie in the direction you want more easily, and make dealing with cowlicks frustrating.
Talk to your stylist about it and see if he/she thinks this would work in your case. Obviously, you may need to retouch the treatment after a couple of months, but it could be the help you need to get the look you want.
