You can’t get rid of a cowlick permanently, but you can temporarily hide it, smooth it, or disguise it.
Do hair cowlicks get worse with age?
Cowlicks are anomalous growth patterns in the hair. Growth patterns can change as we age. Some children who have cowlicks will find that they disappear as they mature, and women who age may find that their hair develops more (or more prominent) cowlicks.
Are you born with cowlicks?
Answer: We hate to break it to you, but cowlicks—those stubborn pieces of hair that grow in their own pattern and resist styling—aren’t just things you’re born with. … Changes in hair texture are genetic, so cowlicks can’t be prevented, but you can style them so they don’t become unruly.
