No entry for Jheri Curl

I tried to look up "Jheri Curl" in several dictionaries and style guides for the proper spelling, hyphenation, and capitalization of this hair-style term, but I did not find a single relevant entry.

I googled it and found little consistency across the Internet--no surprise.

Hasn't it been 20+ years now? Are publishers hoping that the world will forget about the Jheri Curl so that no one will ever have to decide on the definitive format?
