    As a kid I had a full fringe and I also have a realllllllllly bad cow lick. Basically I always had a humongous gap in my fringe that my parents couldn't control.

    When I got to about 9, I grew out my fringe and at 13 had a side fringe put in, so that it swept across, starting from the lick, away from it, which was okay but the fringe wasn't very sweeping. Recently, this year I had my fringe swapped to the other side, so it sweeps over the lick and that seems to have done the trick.

    I was recently considering having a full fringe put back in but tbh I reckon it would stil leave me with a big gap, so am embracing the sweeping fringe and quiff *nods*

    Good luck!!

    hmm well I THINK I have one in my fringe, there is a part of it (cos it's a side fringe) that kind of goes upwards and in the opposite direction, but I still manage by blowdrying it into the right position, its pretty stubborn though so it normally separates. I used to have a straight on fringe, very birefly until it grew out and I didn't find the problem in that, but when I have it as a side one, which is all the time now, it does that annoying thing where it goes upwards and separates.

    So yeah, blowdrying into place is the only thing that seems to stop mine pissing me off lol.

    Maybe this explains my hair then. Sometimes a part of it sort of at the front (but on the side cos I don't have a fringe) just like flicks out or something; it looks almost as if I've straightened my whole hair except for that strand, which is annoying cos I can sit there and straighten it over and over and it just keeps going back to how it was!

    Yep, that's a cow lick. I've got one too (not good for a teenage girl who's expected to straighten her hair to fit in ).

    Cowlicks FTW!

    I have a fairly small cows lick and used to have a fringe, and it was no problem. Depends on how major it is I guess. And for those who don't know a cows lick is like... a bit of hair on the hairline which is swept back slightly, like someone came and licked it back :p: Which is why it's called a cows lick!

    I hate them. Maybe just try a fringe out anyway, if it's terrible you can just pin it back or something until it grows out haha, you never know til you try, the weight might make yours fall better. I have to say though, didnt for me, even when it wasn't a fringe and it was just waist length at the front, it had that stupid "lick" thing going on. We are all cursed beings.

    it does a little, I think it depends on how STUPID your hair wants to be, mine obv hats me so it just goes back to how it was before after some time, but most people I know who have the same kinda problem have solved it by just blowdrying or adding more hair, it might also depend on the texture of your hair, mine is really thick and medium texture, not sure if it makes any differnece though.
