When you were a baby...
 
Did you have little to no hair when born? Did it take forever to grow in (12-18 months)?

Both of my kids and I were born with very little hair. My daughter's hair took forever to come in and when it did it was curlier than mine. I couldn't tell how curly hers was going to be at first because it was so short and started out wavy. My 7-month-old baby boy has even less hair than my daughter did at the same age. His hair has grown, at most, a half-inch in the last 5 months. So, I assume he's going to have curly hair.

I was almost two before I had hair. My mom was worried that I would be bald, but her hairdresser assured her that when it finally came in, it would be nice and curly and it was!!!

I barely had any hair on my head when I was two and three years old. My mother tape a small bow on the top of my head for a pix so people could tell I was a girl. I still didn't have much hair and it was thin and blond when I turned four but it finally started to grow and thicken up and it was curly, curly!! I'm 33 now and still have the same amount of curl.
My son was the same way until he was 3.

My mom hated the taped on bows, so she just dressed me in pink clothes CONSTANTLY (and I mean every day) until my curls grew in. From pictures, it also seems that there were lots of lacy collars and baby bonnets involved in my first wardrobe. She got so hurt when people would call me a boy.

I was bald all the way up until I was 2 or 3. My mom had to dress me in pink all the time because of it, and somehow I was STILL mistaken for a boy.

In all my baby pictures, my hair bows are taped onto my head with Scotch tape.

I was bald until 2 or so and then got a thick head of curly/wavy hair. My DD was bald until almost 3...she's got thick, wavy hair...that is so shiny. My DS had a little hair when he was born his hair came in quickly, he had a full head by 2...however, his is thick, and coarse.

i had a ton of hair when i was born. my mom said as soo as i came out i already had a head full of thick, black, curly hair. the color has lightened now to a dark brown. it is still very thick and curly, though. but i don't even know how to explain pictures i have seen. it is bizarre how much hair i had. i have a three year old cousin who still has way less hair than i did when i was born.

i had a headful of black straight hair when i was born. then it fell out on the sides and back so i had a ton of hair on top that turned curly.

my daughter was born with a head full of straight brown hair too. it was wavy when wet and then it would dry straight. shes 11 months old now and has big curls. the sides and back of her hair fell out too, but se has a massive amount of hair on top while the back and sides are filling in still.

I was bald until I was 2ish. I never knew this was a somewhat of a curly-headed thing! Wow. My sister, however, had a lot of hair that turned more and more wavy as she got older. My hair is curlier than hers though.

My mom also used to dress me in pink and put stick-on bows on my head so people wouldn't think I was a boy! Or she'd tie bows around my head completely. haha.

...And I don't have a kid, I just saw the topic and thought it was interesting and posted. :)

I was born bald. I think it finally grew in a little, but it fell out due to cradle cap. I was 2 before I had any hair. Now it's thick, fine, and curly.

I also had bows taped to my head, dressed in pink and lace. Now I won't go near pink, lace or bows. :fish:

i was born with a very full head of dead straight hair, but i was also a whopping 10lbs 9oz so i was in the oven a while! around 2.5 my hair went to wavy and around 11 it got curly, now at 27 i have a big head of 3b curls.

my mom was a bald baby though and got most of her hair by 2, she has straight almost wavy hair

princessangrypeppers 05-15-2008 09:34 PM

I was born with a full head of blonde, straight hair. After about a year it started getting darker and curlier, until I became a 3b brunette :)

I was born with full head of dark brown hair. The nurses even attempted to put a pony tail in it! I wish I had the picture but it's back home in WI. By the time I was 1 I had Shirley Temple curls. It's still a lot of hair to this day.

The general trend seems to be that curly hair takes a long time to get going, but here I must claim an exception. From what I can see in baby pictures of myself, my hair was quite thick within the first few months. My avatar is from a pic of myself at about three years old - the cherubic appearance is most deceptive. :toothy7:

Blood_Red 05-18-2008 08:50 AM

Haha I was born with wispy 3a hair ;D

Mass1gBewegt 05-21-2008 01:11 PM

I had like a faux-hawk when I was born. I have a pic of me as a baby with little-no hair on the sides and this one big tuft nearish the front that my mom combed flat.


By the time I was 2 or so I had ear length hair with flippy waves. I didn't have curls til I was twelve or so.

I was born with a head full of thick black 3b/c curls and it just took off from there the color just changed from black to brown. I find that most babies that I know who are born with no hair usually end up with a head full of lovely thick spirals.

I thought I was the only one who was bald until I was two! my mom was shocked when she suddenly noticed my baby hair curling after my bath one night. I now have a THICK mane of dark hair, while my sister, who had a head full of silky black hair, now has very, very thin straight hair.

Melanie_Linn 07-03-2008 06:57 PM

my hair was able to be put in a pony tale upon birth. It was butt length by the time i was 3.

lol That sounds like me. My mom said I had so much hair that the nurses kidnapped me and put all kind of bows and barettes in my hair. My hair was curly, jet black, fine and abundant. I can't believe how much hair I had looking back on the pictures. The funniest thing is though my mom and dad were born bald. My mom's hair didn't start growing until she was 3!!
