Matting of the hair is a rare condition characterized by an irreversible tangling of scalp hair. This phenomenon has an uncertain etiopathogenesis, and it is assumed that physical, chemical and electrostatic factors may lead to its onset. In our case, vigorous brushing of the hair can be suggested as the etiological factor of matting.
