So we're overjoyed to see that someone has finally got their hands on it, given it a ruddy good wash and styled it into something that doesn't resemble some filthy old mop.
So, thank you Heat magazine.
Luke Friend reveals a dramatic new look in this week's heat magazine
Luke reveals his sophisticated new look in this week's edition of the mag but admits it's not his hair he thinks he needs to change - but his body shape.
“The shoot’s awesome – a lot different to what I’ve done before,” he told the mag.
"The only thing is, I think I need to lose a bit of weight. I’ve got a bit of a tummy. I don’t worry about it, though. Chicks dig the chub,” he added
“I’ll never be ripped, though. I don’t want to be. It’s too much effort.”
And talking about the female attention he's been getting since appearing on 'The X Factor', he said: “There seems to be Twitter pages for every part of my body now, even for the rude bits – there’s a penis one. I don’t mind.”
“I’m one of those people that if a girl’s coming on to me I wouldn’t have a clue," he added. "It’s really lovely, but I don’t know how to deal with it.
"Someone said something like, “I’ll scream if I don’t get your d**k.” I’m like, 'Calm down!' I don’t see myself as a heartthrob; I guess I see myself as someone a bit different. That might be attractive to girls.”
