My 2 1/2 yr olds hair

Okay so my 2 1/2 year olds hair is super super super curly. I have NEVER cut it once, and its only about 3 inches long after you stretch the curls out. AND VERY VERY VERY THIN. Her dad and i, and even her brother and sister, have super think and fast growing hair. Whats the deal???

  • It's just genetics. Someone, somewhere down the line had fine, curly hair that grew more slowly. Or a variation on those things. It's just what she ended up with.

  • curly hair is different/tricky

    almost certainly, though, a trim will kickstart things. even just a 1/4 inch of ends keeps it sooooo healthy

  • LOL Hibbingmom- No, cutting it will not make it grow faster...

    OP- Its just the type she has, although it could change, as hair often does. I'd be glad though, as long super curly hair can be hard to deal with :)
